Outsourced

Joining the recent parade of India-set films is a softhearted romantic comedy about Todd Anderson (Josh Hamilton – "Broken English"), a telephone sales manager for a Seattle novelty company, who embraces India’s culture and one of its women after being reassigned to an outsourcing project. Asha (Ayesha Dharker) is Todd’s bright new employee at his company’s less-than-finished office in India. Although it starts off slowly, and with too many false starts at comedy, the story warms up considerably in the third act when Todd and Asha go on a brief business mission together. Based on a script by George Wing ("50 First Dates"), co-writer/director John Jeffcoat’s struggles with timing and tone are the main drawbacks to this mini cinematic vacation to Mumbai, Bombay.

Rated PG-13, 103 mins. (C+) (Two Stars)
