I bought this DVD for my parents as they loved "The Most Exotic Marigold Hotel" and I had heard that although the plot is different this film exuded a similar "feel good factor". It has not disappointed, and, in fact, has exceeded expectations. This is one of those films that makes you wonder why it didn't make a splash at the box office when it came out (2007).
The film tells the story of the manager of a call centre in Seattle (Josh Hamilton) who suddenly finds his operation is outsourced to Mumbai. The focus is on the different cultures, values and experiences and the things that can be learnt from them - for better and for worse. This is a highly enjoyable and plausible human story that makes more than a few good cultural/moral points in a lighthearted way and will certainly lift your mood.
Even if this disc was the price of a chart "blockbuster" DVD it would be well worth it, at under £3 it's a "no-brainer", buy it, and, if you've got a soul you'll love it. Recommended.
