    [FONT=&quot]I saw a great movie mostly filmed in mumbai/seattle called Outsourced. Its about an american call center manager whose job is being outsourced to [/FONT]<st1:country-region><st1:place>[FONT=&quot]India[/FONT]</st1:place></st1:country-region>[FONT=&quot] and he has to go to [/FONT]<st1:country-region><st1:place>[FONT=&quot]India[/FONT]</st1:place></st1:country-region>[FONT=&quot] to train his replacement. The movie is a romance and a comedy, but also deep and thought-provoking. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Its a great movie in that it depicts the whole outsourcing/globalization issue with a funny, down to earth, real way instead of berating either western or indian cultures. Has anyone else seen Outsourced? What did you think?

    I just checked the trailer from the link you gave - it looks very interesting. Not sure if it is playing in the theatres here in Kanas City - but I am sure I can find the DVD. Thanks for the information!

    You're welcome! They are selling the DVD on the website as well as the soundtrack. I think you can also rent it now. Yeah - it's a runaway independent film (kinda like My Big Fat Greek Wedding) so it didn't get to play for very long in any of the theaters where it screened, but it has a good following now on DVD. I'm thinking it'll make a good holiday present. I really enjoyed that the romantic female character in Outsourced was strong, outspoken, and they didn't show her naked or put her in revealing clothing - they presented her as attractive because she was smart, and that's such a refreshing change. I also liked that she was Indian and he was American, because that's the same as my parents!

    Let me know what you think! I'm dying to talk about the role of Kali in Outsourced with someone that has a better understanding than I do.
