Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Set in an Indian call centre amongst those working the late shift, this is an endearing tale of young people’s angst, the frustration and boredom of mundane and, at times, degrading work and the rebellious spark that such frustrations can ignite. With thwarted romance, a boss from hell, trouble with the lines and complaining customers, the shift workers play truant and God steps in. This is a morality tale with a difference, an easy, addictive read which has been huge in India. Do try it.

Similar this month: None.
Comparison: Unique but try Ben Sherwood, Mimi Thebo, Vikas Swarup.

Synopsis

One Night at the Call Centre by Chetan Bhagat

Six friends are selling home appliances to the US from a call centre in India. Each has an issue with love.

Call agent Sam works right beside the girl who's just dumped him. He's dating someone he can't stand just to get over her.

Esha’s just short of becoming a model. Two inches, to be precise.

Vroom wants to change the world.

Radikha’s training to manage her mother-in-law, and save her job.

Tonight is Thanksgiving in America, and customers are complaining about their white goods going wrong. On this night of a thousand calls, when life couldn't look more dismal, one unique caller gets on the line. And that call is going to change everything.

A wickedly funny romantic comedy of six friends kicking against the system, against their boss, and against each other. Something's got to give...
