All good things must come to an end — we cap off this month-long film club with a screening of 2013’s instant classic The Lunchbox. Directed by Ritesh Batra and starring the late, great Irrfan Khan, this heartfelt film follows the accidental friendship between a lonely wife and a recent widower as they discover each other’s joys and sorrows without ever meeting in person. Stick around afterward for a discussion about this film and others on the Visions from India Film Club list.

Dil Se.. (1998)
Lagaan (2001)
