Storyline

Struggling to convince his new hotelier client, Kit Hawksin, Granger Woodruff is told by one Jennifer David that his identity has been compromised, and his credit card is being misused. While tracing transactions, both become friendly and agree to meet in San Francisco at the Hawksin Hotel. She does not show up, and Woodruff befriends an East Indian woman, Priya Sethi, who has come to attend a relative's marriage. Woodruff will get a rude awakening when he finds out that Priya is actually Jennifer - who is the fiancé of wealthy Mumbai-based Vikram Bhatia - and has traveled there without informing her family. He will also incur her dad's (Rajeev) wrath, who has been compelled to travel there, along with his wife, Manju, to first locate, and then escort Priya back home to get her married to Vikram.

Trivia

The movie is the first combination between the Indian powerhouse production house, Adlabs with their American counterpart MGM. The film was co-produced by the Indian-American producer Ashok Amritraj and Patrick Aiello. See more »

Goofs

It is shown in the movie that Priya suddenly decides to take off for USA and the very next day she's in the US. The same happens with Granger, as he suddenly walks out of his friend's wedding and takes off for India. Both scenarios are impossible as it takes quiet a long time (weeks) for Indians to get a US tourist visa approved after a long process and for American visitors to get an Indian Visa approved. None of the two countries have got "visa-on-arrival" or "visa free entry" treaty for citizens of their counterpart country. See more »

Funny and refreshing romantic comedy!
30 October 2008 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

The Other End of the Line is a romantic comedy film scheduled to be released tomorrow, starring Jesse Metcalfe, Shriya Saran and Anupam Kher.

The film is based on an employee at an Indian call-center who travels to San Francisco to be with a guy she falls for over the phone.

It is the first combination between the Indian powerhouse production house, Adlabs with their American counterpart MGM. The film is co-produced by the Indian-American producer Ashok Amritraj and Patrick Aiello.

We had the privilege of watching the trade screening last night in downtown Toronto and I suggest all movie buffs not to miss this cute, refreshing Hollywood/Bollywood movie.

The first five minutes does not engage you the way most professional Bollywood films do, however until the end after is pretty entertaining.

Funny dialogues, lovely casting and performances! Go watch it!
