New Delhi: Ritesh Batra's “The Lunchbox”, which is still running at international box office, has entered into 25th silver jubilee week on Friday in Germany.
“At a time when films don't run for 25 days, #TheLunchbox has entered into 25th silver jubilee week yesterday [Fri] in Germany. SUPERB!”, tweets trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh.
Apart from Germany, at US box office, the flick is said to be this year's highest grossing foreign film.
“The Lunchbox” has raked in $2.7 million (and still counting) at American box office, according to the box office reporting service Box Office Mojo.
Co-produced by Guneet Monga, Anurag Kashyap and Arun Rangachari, it has reportedly done more business than Bollywood movies like “English Vinglish” ($1.8 million), “Agneepath” ($1.9 Million) and “Krrish 3” ($2.2 million).
The story revolves around Ila, a young middle class Mumbai housewife, essayed by Nimrat Kaur, trying to win back her husband's affections through his stomach and how a rare misplaced delivery in Mumbai's famously efficient 'dabba' system of lunchboxes, from homes to offices, connects her to an old widower, played by Irrfan Khan through notes in the lunch box.
