India’s hottest indie film of the year, Ritesh Batra’s directorial debut The Lunchbox (2013) is a feel-good romance with global appeal, and comes to DVD and Blu-ray this coming Monday (14 July). To celebrate the home entertainment release of Batra’s winning offering, which is guaranteed to please foodies and world cinema fans alike, we have THREE brand new DVD copies of The Lunchbox to give away to our regular and returning readers, kindly provided to us by the always generous team at the film’s UK distributors and friends of the site Artificial Eye. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Saajan (Irrfan Khan, The Life of Pi), a Mumbai office worker nearing retirement is delivered the wrong lunch by a dabbawala – a special Indian delivery service. Young housewife Ila (played by Nimrat Kaur) had intended it for her emotionally indifferent husband. To Saajan’s surprise, the food is a vast improvement on his usual meal. When he finds a note from Ila enclosed with another meal, he decides to write back. So begins Batra’s exquisite comedy-drama.
