Bombay Calling - DVD
Kas Lalani's flight touches down in Bombay. His cell phone is ringing off the
hook. The CEO of a small British outsourcing firm, he is working hard to cash
in on the global gold rush of telemarketing jobs from the West. Bombay
provides him with access to well-educated, English-speaking youths eager to
get ahead and willing to sacrifice almost anything to do it.
For their efforts, they are paid more money than their parents ever dreamed of earning. And they spend it, frequenting a new brand of all-night discos that cater to their unusual office hours.
In Bombay Calling, filmmakers Ben Addelman and Samir Mallal dive into this bustling world of late nights, long hours and hard partying. The result is a compelling insider's look at youth culture in India, and a growing number of young people who choose to follow the American dream...Indian style.
Bonus option: Directors' audio commentary; India concert; Filmmakers' bios.
In English with French subtitles option.
