Look & Feel:

Introduction: I’ll start with the disclaimer first: No Indian has been harmed in the making of this show. So, I’ll also try my best to maintain dis claim in my review as well. As goes the cliche, we the Indians, my brothers and sisters, always gaping ape as if wanting for more & more. I welcome you with MouthShut id, rest just off to burgers please. Keep burping! Well, let me first introduce you to the characters in this show in one breadth and length (Area ek saans mein). Todd, Rajiv, Asha, Manmeet, Madhuri, Ranjeet, Pinky, Tonya, Charlie and Gupta! (misc: Lata, Prakash, Bimmi, Manendra,.. ) Here, we have Todd as the manger, who is always mishandled by subordinates and audibly mispronounced as Toad. Asha, always sending false oops to Todd. Rajeev, asst. manager with SUM hidden motives. He believes that to make his subordinates work as team, always ensure that they have a common enemy i.e. their boss- himself. Manmeet -a man waiting for a meeting with a blonde, or a redhair or a blackhair or a whatever. Madhuri -chilli flakes in a small dominos sachet. Ranjeet -his lower lip always providing cushion to his upper lip, the limited speech edition. Pinkeeeeeeeehh! Her Call Wait Time is – Beep- Bas 2 minutes!! Tonya, the Yo Babe Factor present in any show. Charlie- a friend in need is a friend indeed. And , last but not the least the Gupta who needs no introduction but he ensures that its always on the top (okay, the first). Gupta, though a surname, earned the reputation of the best character name herein. Now, stop accusing me, its not nepotism. That is what I felt. He is like Google+ who is being ignored but it wouldn’t stop him from making appearances at every social junction. Peek A Boo! And there goes a betel quid spit splash!

Plot: One fine morning, Mid-Western Novelty call-centre in Kansas City gets outsourced to India. Jerry, the owner asks Todd to manage that call-centre in India. Reluctantly, Todd accepts. He had to! On reaching Mumbai office, Rajeev and employees welcomes Toad in their own puddle. At lunch, Todd meets Charlie and Tonya, an American and an Aussie respectively both managing different nearby call centres.

At work, Todd first trains his employees about the American culture and Novelty-ies that they are selling. However, the revenues are not up to mark and he try to figure out the reason and befriends Manmeet at work. Gupta who is habitual eavesdropper listens to the conversation and understands that someone would be fired. He creates a mess at work then. Charlie is obsessed with Tonya but she likes frolicsome Todd! All Rajeev wants is to marry Bimmi, his childhood sweetheart. (Bimmi was dusky in her first appearance and looked liked all bathe in Fair & Lovely in the subsequent episodes) He wants to impress her father anyhow. He always wants to pose himself superior than Todd! That is pretty fun to watch. Gupta’s talk to the hand attitude adds complexities to his own life. Did I say own? Sorry, I meant everyone involved. Don’t you dare telling him that he scks! He is quite inquisitive and might follow you as to ask - sck what? Sometimes catastrophe strikes them from outside as well, tagged as urbane White CALLer neighbours. While Todd does everything to seek Asha’s attention, she keeps herself busy sieving through BIOs of potential grooms.

Now, I cann’t write each and everything for you. Not how Tonya and Todd do amazing things- on table, on chair, on bed.. Not even about who hughes Charlie’s jackman? What are the pointers that he keeps referring to.. About who all gave sales to Manmeet to set his sail-boat...How does Asha keeps Toad hopping? Who traps Jerry with some cheese.. If Madhavi is stirring hornet’s nest then which bird will emerge out of it.. What are the risks involved in +1ing Gupta to social networking.. Okay! Don’t push me. I am not telling you anything about the gropers in the overcrowded trains... No! You have to see it to enjoy it. Peek A Boo! There is a fortune teller in there..

Recommendation: YES Maano yaa naa maano! They always talked F.R.I.E.N.D.S. And, I faked it then. I haven’t seen it. Not even dhai men. No idea of what big bang theory was. I remember a little of how I met your mother. Sorry, I was all beers then. Hell, I don’t even understand their jokes without subtitles. In Outsourced jokes are on India. I understand these even if they don’t say it. Homely, Plain, Made for India! I can even talk Gupta to all of you. You might call it cheap but guess what I am not even charging. I know you might also want to ask if I’m high. Answer is NO. Its the same old, 21 inches. No idea as to what High definition is. This TV sitcom is actually an adaptation of the movie Outsourced, retaining the same theme but extending the plot and characters far beyond, for good of course. It makes my lips move. I smile, I laugh, never rolled on the floor though. I am now looking forward for the next season. Its more of a habit now. In summer I think of monsoon, in monsoon of winter & .. Ghantaa! I wish there are more seasons of it.

Warning: Its a pure perverted nonsense... Pay attention Donkeys! Entire junta... Remember King Khan’s head wobble? Sab par Dish sawaar hai! But you, yes YOU, one in the middle, seem quiet smart and not interested.. just one free byte for your logical platter: Why do men have nipp!es? You leech take one more for seeding – would a eunuch offer 50% discount if you ask it to strip for a bachelor’s party. Your answer may or may not lie in there but beware its a 16+ sitcom. Don’t even think of sitting complete with your parental guidance kit with a kid nestled in your arms. He’ll ask questions that will give golden gooseb
