Storyline

When the call center he manages in Seattle is outsourced to India, Todd travels there to train his replacement. Housed in a new building that looks like an above-ground bunker, the call center is staffed by willing novices whom Todd trains to sound American. One star on the staff is Asha, who teaches Todd that he should learn about India, and proceeds to do just that. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Trivia

The note that Asha passes to Todd is a page torn from The Kama Sutra. The caption reads "Any posture is unsatisfactory if kissing is impossible." See more »

Goofs

CST (old Victoria Terminus, the train station in Mumbai from where Todd takes the train) is not in the rickshaw zone, so it is impossible for him to go from the airport to CST by rickshaw. See more »

This is a "must see" romantic comedy
27 November 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I am not a fan of romantic comedies, specially "Friends" like ones because I think it is too pasteurized, politically correct. I thank God there is some nice romantic comedies with another spice that taste great for me and this movie is an example of it.

Basically it show the cultural shock of a sad US call center manager sent to India to train an outsourced team. It is very nice how this movie shows the way the de-passionated yank finds the meaning of life in such different place and culture.

I am Brazilian and I know some US people that comes here to visit the country and decided to stay and adopted Brazilian way of life. This movies shows very well this happening.

If you want a very nice movie to watch when you are depressed with your work, pick this one ... and prepare yourself to be eager to travel to an exotic place after it ends.
