Ritesh Batra's 'The Lunch Box', which is screened at the Telluride Film Festival has emerged a winner, that it is being loved by some of the most respected names in Hollywood and is regarded as an Oscar favourite.

Best selling author Salman Rushdie tweeted: "I loved The lunch Box, big hit at Telluride Film Festival, best Indian film in a long time. Strong Foreign film Oscar contender, in my view."

Renowned critic A. O. Scott of The New York Times, in his piece about Telluride, wrote that: "The Lunchbox (is) the deft and charming first feature by Ritesh Batra. He uses Mumbai's lunch-delivery system which transports thousands of meals every day from kitchens to offices as the background for a quasi-romantic fable..."
