Did you ever run into tiffin wallahs in Mumbai? They do an amazing job of delivering home cooked lunches all over the city.

If you’re not sure what I’m on about, catch Irfan Khan’s movie The Lunchbox set around the mistaken delivery of a tiffin. You may remember Khan as the police officer in Slumdog Millionaire. He’s a veteran of the Bollywood scene but don’t let that put you off. This is not the typical musical mashup masala bala movie. This is a sweet story as well as an inside peek at the tiffin wallahs of Mumbai.
