Talented actor Irrfan is happy with “The Lunchbox”, which is set for Sep 20 release, and feels that the story is so good that it will not only remind viewers of real love, but satiate their appetite too.
“The film is a complete dish. It increases your hunger, both stomach’s and your heart’s. So it’s a complete meal,” the 46-year-old said here Thursday in an interview.
“The director’s style of telling the story is fresh and new. It inspires you to fall in love, something that people are forgetting these days. Love is becoming mechanical and need-oriented. The film reminds you of the real love that exists,” he added.
Actress Nimrat Kaur, who makes her debut in Bollywood with the film, says the film has the potential to make a place in the viewer’s system.
“The film slowly makes a place in your system. There is a huge space in the film for the audience to enter…,” Nimrat said in an interview.
“There is a lovely sensation, which I felt when I saw the film for the second time because the first time I got completely lost in it. So it will appeal to anybody,” she added.
The film has already carved a niche for itself in the film festival circuit. It was recently screened at the Toronto film festival and won Critics’ Week Viewers Choice Award at Cannes this year.
Directed by debutant Ritesh Batra, “The Lunchbox” also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
