The Lunchbox: Making an Indie Film in India

Hosted by  • 

In India, any movie without song and dance is considered an art-house film. Such is the case with The Lunchbox. Filmmaker Ratesh Batra talks about why he made this sweet romance with European backers. Plus, Batra addresses the controversial decision by the Indian film federation not to choose the film as that country's submission for the Oscars.
