Very interesting movie
7 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Having worked in US call centers for over ten years I was very excited and interested to see this movie for myself.

American Daylight strives to be a love story with intrigue. The lovers come from two very different worlds. Sujata or 'Sue' as she is known to the American callers, works in a call center in a new growing suburb of Delhi. Lawrence is portrayed as the rich American that has all needs paid for by the company. (This is a very common practice for relocated American center managers, but seems foreign to the Indian culture).

You'll be surprised to see how this story takes the characters through a web of plots, plans, deceit, misunderstandings, double-crosses and a clash of cultures.

American Daylight is a thriller through which emerges a love story of modern global times.
