Critic Reviews for The Other End of the Line

At its simplest level, this is a sweet, if forgettable trifle starring two healthy, bright-eyed young lovers who look great on each other's arm.

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.

The movie is like a glass of Sprite that has been left on the counter too long: transparent, sweet and flat.

October 31, 2008 | Rating: 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.

October 31, 2008 | Rating: 2/4

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.

unrealistic and predictable. Not a very good movie.

Sweet movie, something a bit different in a romantic comedy. Not overly convincing, I guess, but so nice that I was able to overlook it. Story is that Priya works in call centre in India for an American bank. To avoid getting abused, the staff there pretend to be American and that's how she starts talking to Granger, after he has had some fraud on his credit card. In all honesty, Granger is pretty shallow and seems to be a womaniser, so that part didn't really work for me, as I didn't see what beautiful, smart Priya would see in him, really. Pretending to be an American called Jennifer, Granger becomes attracted to her too and asks if they can meet. The obstacle here is, not only is Priya in India, but she is also due to have an arranged marriage. I liked this enough to suspend my disbelief at the whole situation. Sweet.
