In recent years, a growing number of western companies have been outsourcing jobs to India. With the starting salary of these new outsourced jobs being quadruple the Indian average, thousands of educated young Indians are now competing for highly paid call centre jobs. Bombay Calling gives us an insider's look into a fast-paced and competitive world where call centre employees are continually pushed to sell, sell, sell telephone plans to UK customers. We meet colourful characters like Sweetie, who is able to financially support her family from her call centre earnings, and Charles, who admits to being a "ladies' man" as he does the majority of his sales with female clients. Filmmakers Ben Addelman and Samir Mallal deftly integrates upbeat music tracks and an array of Bollywood film clips in this entertaining doc that offers a fresh look into the role of capitalism in new India.
