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

When Todd first arrives at the airport in India, and is making his way through the group holding signs looking for people, the name on one of the signs is Gwen Bialic. See more »
When Todd is being driven to the train station in the rickshaw, his position and the position of his luggage keeps switching back and forth from side to side depending on the location of the camera. To move the luggage alone from side to side would have required lots of effort and there is no leg or headroom to do so. 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.

Having just returned from a 3 week trip to India I found this movie to be absolutely delightful and so funny and so true. It was like I was transformed back to India. The culture shock when one first arrives in the country was beautifully portrayed as he stops to get a drink and then is over run with hawkers on the way to get a taxi and ends up in a motorized three-wheeler and the ride of his life. One has to experience it to know the feeling. Even the little nod of his head as he speaks has it nailed! And anyone who has had to call for computer help and gets their call sent off to a center in India will especially see the humor in this movie.
