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 »

Great movie about Indian and American cultures
18 June 2007 | by seattlewausaSee all my reviews

Really well written movie that pokes fun of both American and Indian cultures but with respect for each. Filmed partly in Seattle, but mostly in India. You see an American call center director has his section outsourced and he reluctantly travels to India to keep his job for a few weeks more till his stock options vest. He finds a culture he slowly comes to respect and embrace through an Indian woman he falls for and friendship with his coworker. The story plays out over many location shots in and near Mumbai. You almost feel you've been there by the end of the film. A great Indian cast really puts this one over the top with many laughs. Your next call with an Indian call center won't be the same.
