Among all Indian films by the new age Indian filmmakers, it is Ritesh Batra's THE LUNCH BOX (Critics' Week) that has got a thumbs up while films like BOMBAY TALKIES (Special Screening) by Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, and Dibakar Banerjee, MONSOON SHOOTOUT (Midnight Screening) by Amit Kumar, and UGLY (Directors' Fortnight) by Anurag Kashyap have disappointed the Cannes audience.
