Starring: Josh Hamilton, Asif Basra, Ayesha Dharker, Sudha Shivpuri, Matt Smith
An American e-commerce company is looking to outsourcing all its sales calls to India in order to cut costs and make larger profits. Todd Anderson (Hamilton) has been assigned the task to go to India and set-up the new call centre and to train the man who will now do his job. For most Americans, India is a nightmare and for Todd it wasn't any better. Purohit N. Virajnarianan (Basra) his Indian replacement keeps calling him 'Toad' and it isn't too long before he starts missing his country and wants to go back home. Slowly and steadily, like most people, he learns to adapt himself and doesn't get freaked out if he sees a stray cow entering his office. He falls in love with Asha (Dhareker) the assistant manager of the call centre and very soon falls in love with India. The movie plot sounds and feels very conventional but has some amusing bits and pieces thrown across the board. An Indian or someone from a different country who has been in a situation like Todd's, would probably relate better to the movie. A light and humourous watch and for an Indian or someone been to India, it gets even better.
Thumbs up: A light and fun movie
