Kenny Gupta has been sent out from London to manage a call center, Technobable, in Mumbai. Since arriving in India, Kenny has been depressed. He's been absent from his job most of the time and he's having trouble getting over a woman he had to leave back in London. Meanwhile at Technobable, among the daily confusion and the lack of supervision, Dev Rajah, Kenny's assistant, gets a call from the head office saying that Terry Johnston has arrived in Mumbai to do "an on site assessment". In a panic, Dev tells an office boy to pick up Terry Johnston from the airport and drop the assessor "anywhere but here!" Dev must find "Mr. Kenny" to deal with the problem. Dev finds Kenny in a bar trying to work off a hangover and inspires Kenny to come in to work and keep up appearances. Just as Dev manages to get Kenny into work and cleaned up, Terri Johnston, a good looking, smart, efficient, lady arrives at the call center to find it hardly what she expected. And Terri Johnston is also hardly what they expected. Just then a crisis breaks out. Kenny and Terri quickly spring in to action, working together they solve the crisis. They might be a good team. The head office tells Terri to stay in India, setting up a rivalry and maybe attraction between Kenny and Terri.

Kenny Gupta is late for work and the streets are blocked with crowds arriving for a religious festival. His cab driver, Sunil, finds a way through by driving like a maniac. Today is the day that Kenny is launching a new service for drivers in the UK. It's goes well, then not so well, and then it's a disaster. Meanwhile, Terri has nowhere to live. So out of an act of Indian hospitality, Dev offers her accommodation at his house. Terri tells Dev's family that she is his boss and this causes Dev to be ridiculed at home. By the end of the night, Terri finds herself sleeping in a bed with three of Dev's relatives. Kenny is surprised that he is jealous of Terri staying at Dev's house. But when he finds out that there is no relationship between the two, he comes up with a plan to help both Dev and Terri out of their unfavorable predicaments. Later, back at the call centre, another UK traffic caller challenges Kenny, Dev and Terri to think on their feet to avoid disaster. They rise to the challenge with some help from the taxi-driving-maniac Sunil and Terri accepts Kenny's offer of a place to stay.

Kenny now relishes the prospect. He wants to invite Terri, but Dev talks him out of it. As the date approaches Kenny gets more nervous. Dev gives him an inspirational speech - interrupted by his mobile phone, which will not switch off. Kenny arrives at the venue and realizes that he has forgotten his speech, which he left in the printer. Looking out on the crowd, Kenny is taken aback to see Terri arriving with Dev. With no notes and being continuously interrupted by Dev's mobile phone, Kenny reverts to the speech we first heard from Dev. Much to Kenny's surprise it gets a rousing response.
