He is told that he will be heading the transition team and training his counterpart in Mumbai -- a task he dreads. While initially baffled by Indian culture, Josh eventually begins to get along with his new coworkers, and, with the help of female staffer Asha (Ayesha Dharker), he learns to appreciate his new surroundings.

  • In the hands of a lesser director, the secondary characters, including Todd's matronly Indian landlady, might have been mere caricatures. Smart production design and camerawork enhance the sense of authenticity.

    August 29, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A frothy romantic comedy that makes a serious point about the arrogance of treating human beings from around the world as interchangeable economic units.

    August 29, 2008 | Rating: 3/4
  • A sweet if predictable variation on the premise of the ugly American, redeemed by Hamiton's dry performance, some nice comic turns by the Indian supporting cast, and a droll script by Jeffcoat and George Wing.

    August 29, 2008 | Full Review…
  • Jeffcoat handles the ostensible cultural differences gingerly. The movie's approach to globalism is to play everything small and keep everybody human.

    Not bad. I liked the setting in India, although I have to admit, it doesn't make me want to go there! Not glamourous at all, although some of it is pretty. I have only seen one episode of the sit com based on it, so I can't really comment on if this is better or not (I honestly can't remember a lot about the episode). It is a similar story to The Other End of the Line, which I also watched quite recently. I think this one is a little more realistic, while that one was more romantic, but both good stories. I found this quite funny in places as well. Worth a watch.

    Todd: Your name is Manmeet? A few years before the now popular NBC show, Outsourced, it was first an indie movie. In this post I will compare and decide which is better. Let's start with the TV show. In my opinion, the show is hilarious and features very likable characters. Not only does the show teach you about Indian culture, it also mocks it. Some different characters were added to the show who were not in the movie (The Australian girl, Guupta...).The movie, while has it's differences, is very similar to the show. All of the characters names remain the same, and the Todd-Asha relationship goes on. The big difference between them is that the movie was full of heart and soul and the show is... well a bunch of fart jokes and gags, which I like! But if I had to choose than I'd favor the film over the TV show. Read the full review at www.creedsdelight.com

    Not bad. Outsourced can be funny at times, but for some reason, I just couldn't empathize with any of the characters. I don't know why I felt this way...I can't explain it. I absolutely love the tv show that this film spawned, so I have to at least give it credit for that. If you're interested in this film, my advice would be to just watch the tv show instead.

    I can see why this concept inspired a sitcom - very funny! A lot of over-the-top stereotypes, but funny none the less. A different romantic comedy that makes you laugh more than think about the romance!
