You Can Smell THE LUNCHBOX Trailer From Here

Peter Martin, Managing Editor

It's probably a good thing that computers don't have Smell-O-Rama (yet), but I'd be willing to make an exception for this new trailer for The Lunchbox (original title, Dabba).

"Set amid Bombay's dabbawallas -- who deliver thousands of lunchboxes sent by Bombay housewives to their husbands at the office -- Dabba is about an old-fashioned, but contemporary romance that grows entirely through notes in the lunchbox," wrote our reviewer Meenakshi Shedde. The film "is an exquisite, bittersweet ode to love and longing from India that makes your heart sing."

Ritesh Batra directed; the cast includes Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi), Nimrat Kaur (Peddlers) and Nawazuddin Siddique (Gangs of Wasseypur). The Lunchbox is scheduled to open in select theaters in the U.S. on February 28. You can watch the trailer below.

    I love the critical pull quotes at the end of this. Most everybody turns in these twee little blurbs with glib food themes. Meanwhile, A. O. Scott uses the word "epistolary".

    Somehow I've not seen this yet. Not quite sure how that has happened.
