After winning many a praise and accolades for his debut directorial film Lunchbox (starring Irrfan Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Nimrat Kaur), the director Ritesh Batra’s latest film is a thrilling drama - about a man who is haunted by his past and is presented with a mysterious legacy that causes him to re-think his current situation in life.

Talking about adapting the award winning book into a film Batra said, "The Sense of an Ending is just one of those books I’ve always carried with me. I have always loved the book since I read it back in 2011. I tracked it down a little bit, found out that it was already in development and forgot about it. About a year after that I think the producers had seen my last movie, The Lunchbox, and came to me with an offer to direct. I was very curious to see what the writer had done with it. I read the script and obviously fell in love with it."
The Sense of an Ending will have a box office clash with Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri, Abbas Mustan’s Machine and Swara Bhaskar’s Anaarkali of Aaraah on March 24.
