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.
