The Other End of the Line

I can't remember where I heard of this, but something I was reading someplace mentioned that there was a non-fiction book about someone working in a Mumbai call center and pretending to be American, and that the book had inspired the movie writer to come up with this story. It sounded like something I'd like, so I requested that the library buy a copy of the movie. A few weeks later, it arrived and I got to be the first to check it out.

The call center work is the vehicle for the heroine to meet the hero, but it springs into a nice story about culture differences. The Indian heroine, an account rep for a credit card company who pretends to live in San Francisco, flies to the US to meet the American hero after they spend a lot of time chatting about his identity being stolen. The story isn't deep or anything other than a pleasant formula romance, but in this day and age it's enough simply to find a well-executed romantic comedy. It made me smile, and DSR liked it, too.

If Alan Rickman floats your boat the way he does mine, head on over to the Sweeney Todd movie clips and watch #3, "You gandered at my ward".
