Storyline

Stanley studies in an all-boys Holy Family High School in Andheri East, Mumbai. While his class-mates bring their very own Tiffin-boxes, Stanley does not do so on the pretext that his mother is away, and shares food with Aman Mehra and others much to the chagrin of the Hindi Teacher, Babubhai Verma, who not only cajoles fellow-teachers, but virtually forces children, to share their food with him. With extra classes being imposed on both students and teachers, and the recess-breaks being doubled, parents are also forced to pack more food in lunch-boxes. When students evade Babubhai and continue sharing food with Stanley, he calls the latter aside and warns him that he cannot attend school until and unless he brings his own food. Watch what impact this has on Stanley, teachers, and his class-mates. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Sweet Time machine . . . . Stanley ka Dabba
16 May 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Stanley ka Dabba is a Sweet time machine which will take you back to your golden days,every character of the film will remind you of someone,your friend,your teachers,your principal,your school uniform,your school bag, your books,& off course your Dabba :). Dabba filled with not just food but with lots & lots of mother's love. Amol Gupte succeeds in getting the same taste in the movie.A movie with a very BIG heart & a heartwarming message.

Performances of all are just great,the teachers remind you your teachers,but the show stealer r the children,specially Partho as Stanley,he will stay in your heart n mind for a long long time.

Watch it & enjoy the ride to your sweetest days,u would feel great,i recommend it to all. Simplicity at it's best,one of best movies you'll be watching for long time.

Hats Off Amol Gupte sir,please keep making more movies.
