In anticipation of the October 31 release of the Ashok Amritraj production The Other End of the Line, the film’s poster is out, complete with gender-appropriate colored telephone handsets. You can see the trailer here.
The film stars hunky Jesse Metcalfe (from Desperate Housewives) and Shriya Saran (recently seen in Sivaji: The Boss ) as well as Anupam Kher and Larry Miller. In a nutshell, the story is that Shriya, who works the phones for a credit card BPO in India come to SFO to meet the guy she’s fallen for over the phone (yup, that’d be Jesse).
The film is the first in a multi-year deal between Reliance and Amritraj’s Hyde Park Entertainment.
I have to admit, I’m a wee bit wary of yet another East-meets-Vest story, but hey, let’s see, maybe we’ll all be pleasantly surprised.
