A winning Stateside debut for beautiful Indian actress Shriya Saran.
The Other End of the Line ends up being a five-minute ad for buyer's insurance instead of an interminable interracial, international, intercultural romantic comedy.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
The movie is like a glass of Sprite that has been left on the counter too long: transparent, sweet and flat.
| Original Score: 2/4
By the time the filmmakers have set up all the story lines that will blend for a very long third act, the predictability factor has become all but unbearable.
A feather-light romantic comedy that's laborious when it ought to be effervescent; The Other End of the Line is the latest exchange in an awkward conversation between two film industries.
It's not fair to ask that a romantic comedy be entirely realistic — but some level of plausibility would make the jokes go down easier, as would a touch of delicacy in the writing.
| Original Score: 4.5/10
At a time when our global standing is sinking like a stone, it's comforting to know that, at least on the big screen, we can still land the babes no matter how obnoxious we are.
A charming old-fashioned romantic comedy transposed to today's global dating world.
