18h30:  THE LUNCHBOX, directed by Ritesh Batra (104 minutes)

The Lunchbox MovieStarring:  Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur and Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Middle class housewife Ila is trying once again to add some spice to her marriage.  She hopes that  new recipes with help from Auntie upstairs,  will  arouse some kind of reaction from her neglectful husband. She prepares a special lunchbox to be delivered to him at work.   It is mistakenly delivered to another office worker.

Thus begins a series of lunchbox notes between Saajan and Ila, and the mere comfort of communicating with a stranger anonymously soon evolves into an unexpected friendship. Gradually, their notes become little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears, and even small joys. They each discover a new sense of self  in the big city of Mumbai that so often crushes hopes and dreams.

20h30:  To the world music of Ben Bad, get lost in the flavours and aromas of Bombay.   A magical feast from India.  Cash bar available. Ends 22h30
