Saajan Fernández is a man who is about to retire. He works as an auditor in a company in Mumbai.Every day at lunchtime, he receives his tiffin (lunch). However, one day he receives a different lunch, which contains the most delicious food he’d eaten before, the aroma, taste and appearance are considerably far from the usual menu. Ila is a married woman who is lonely and wants to regain the love and interest of her husband. She embarks on a mission to win his love through the taste of her lunch. However, the plan is not going as anticipated, since the “infallible” service of dabbawalas has wrongly given the tiffin of her husband. After slight confusion begins a deep friendship between the two strangers, whose link is defined by the food. It is said that love borns into the eye. But it also says that love is through the stomach.
