The song Dyanoba Mauli tukaram that the dabbawalahs sing in the train during the middle and at the end of the movie is in praise of Sant Tukaram and Dyaneshwar, who were the pioneers of Bhakti movement in Maharashtra.

Must watch with a full stomach, else you'll have a watering mouth every five minutes while watching the plot. India is a country where we give utmost importance to food & family. This story, packed in a Lunchbox, comes to your table & gives you a flavor of Indian ethnicity & the emotions we go through in everyday life !
The overcrowded local trains, Harvard certified Mumbai Dabbawalas, Amidst busy working hours, an irritating yet likable junior And the best friend "Aunty" to a direction less housewife
All this should be enough to drag you to the cinema house & enjoy the spicy curry in the LUNCHBOX.
