Outsourced

Todd Anderson (Josh Hamilton) spends his days managing a customer call center in Seattle until his job, along with those of the entire office, is outsourced to India. To make matters worse, Todd must travel to India to train his new replacement.

He initially can’t stand the chaos of Bombay or the office paralyzed by constant cultural misunderstandings, and yearns to return to the comforts of home. But India has a beguiling way with the unwary traveler, and Todd soon realizes that his new office coworkers Puro (Asif Basra) and Asha (Ayesha Dharker) have it pretty good.

Outsourced has all the charm and color of its made-in-India locations, yet it's crafted--well crafted--according to familiar Hollywood convention.

Bursting with affection for its characters and for India.

A smart idea is wasted in this anodyne cross-cultural comedy of manners which pretends to address the oppressiveness of globalised commerce but shies away in favour of a twee love story and and stereotype gags.

Josh Hamilton gives a marvelously engaging performance in this fish-out-of-water comedy.
