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.
