The Other End of the Line is a 2008 Indian-American romantic comedy set in Mumbai and San Francisco. Priya Sethi (Shriya Saran) is a super hero of sorts. During the day she is an obedient daughter in a conservative India family, betrothed to the wealthy but somewhat childish, Vikram S. Bhaitia (Aseesh Kapur). At night, Priya becomes Jennifer David, master of the American accent and culture at Citi One Bank Card call center in Mumbai. When Jennifer meets Granger Woodruff (Jesse Metcalf) over the phone while helping his resolve a credit card issue, sparks fly. Soon the two are infatuated and agree to meet in San Francisco. When Priya arrives at the meeting place, however, Granger doesn't recognize her. Fate soon steps in and the two bump into each other while Priya is checking in to the hotel. The two hit it off immediately, but Granger fails to realize that Priya is actually Jennifer from the call center. As their relationship begins to heat up, Priya's family arrives to take her back to India. At the same time, Granger discovers Priya's true identity and her plans for marriage to Vikram. Granger immediately breaks off the relationship. As the two separate, however, they cannot stop thinking about each other. Fate, it seems, has other plans for them.moreless

    As cross-cultural bridge-builders go, picture is smart, funny and sweet enough to make you reassess your attitude next time you get reach tech support in New Delhi.

    Watching Granger and Priya chase each other around a hotel like squirrels in a park, you wonder what these two see in each other.
