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

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 »
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 »
I've noticed that almost everyone signed up for the incentive program, except you. Don't you want anything?
What would I do with this, I'm a vegetarian.

I went into this film thinking I would see a "nice" film that "deserved to be seen" (which is too often code for a boring movie). I laughed my ass off, as did the whole audience. This is the most entertaining movie I've seen in months -- time and again the filmmakers found a way to surprise me. A tight story. Terrific performances from the stars all the way down to the tiniest roles. Perfect pacing. Graceful, muscular directing. This is not a "good little movie" -- it's a good movie, period and it's a crime it's not getting wider distribution just because the male lead isn't played by the flavor of the month. A smart, funny film.
