While struggling to impress new hotelier client Kit Hawksin, Granger Woodruff of the ad agency Stimulus is told by Jennifer David of the CityOne Bank call center 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. When she apparently does not show up, Granger befriends an Indian girl, Priya Sethi, who has flown in to attend a relative's birthday party. Granger will get a rude awakening when he finds out that Priya is actually Jennifer, additionally the fiancée of wealthy Mumbai-based Vikram Bhatia. Since Priya has traveled to America without her family's consent, Granger will also incur her family's wrath, three of whom have felt compelled to travel there to locate Priya then escort her back home to marry Vikram.

Goofs

Granger comes to India hunting for Priya at "CityOne Bank Headquarters." Normally all the foreign companies use third party Indian companies to house their call centers. The local people identify these companies by the name of the Indian Business entity, not the client company; hence, no Indian locals would known where the "CityOne Bank Headquarter" would be when Granger asks for directions to Priya's workplace.

Funny and refreshing romantic comedy!
30 October 2008 | by artusharSee 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!
