While ostensibly celebrating global connectivity, this film does so from the perspective of an American audience for whom India is an idea rather than a place.

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.

The film settles into a pattern of predictable romance interspersed, thanks to the antics of Priya's relations, with broad family farce.
October 30, 2008
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.

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.

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

Superior to a lot of the bigger-budgeted, starrier-cast romantic comedies that come out of Hollywood...but too lightweight and rough around the edges to amount to anything more than a harmless time-waster.

A charming old-fashioned romantic comedy transposed to today's global dating world.

The Other End of the Line isn't always convincing on the romance front. As a comedy about culture clash, however, The Other End of the Line works nicely.
