Anupam Kher takes Toronto by storm with ‘Mera Woh Matlab Nahin Tha’, gets honored by Canadian government

  • Bollyspice
Anupam Kher’s latest and eagerly anticipated offering, “Mera Woh Matlab Nahin Tha” played at a packed Massey Hall in Toronto as part of its North American tour on Saturday, August 29. As expected, it was well worth the wait. The versatile actor, along with his talented co-star Neena Gupta, brought the capacity crowd to its feet with their flawless performance.

For Toronto’s South Asian community, it was a chance to get a much more intimate and personal glimpse of one of their favorite and most respected stars. “Mera Woh Matlab Nahin Tha” is an invitation for a walk down the memory lane with childhood sweethearts Pritam (Kher) and Hema (Gupta), who reunite after 35 years and examine the reasons why they drifted apart.

Mr. Kher is no stranger to the Canadian movie industry, having worked on the 2011 movie Breakaway with young Canadian actor, Vinay Virmani. In fact, Kher even called

Unable to find a job as a doctor, he starts working as a cabbie and becomes a local celebrity after delivering a baby in his cab. Deepak sees the opportunity to make his dream come true and converts his taxi into a mobile clinic. But his selfless ambition of healing others will lead to serious problems that Deepak will have to face in order to succeed.

Salman Khan’s first international film ‘Dr. Cabbie’ with Vinay Virmani opens to good reviews

  • Bollyspice
Dr. Cabbie, Salman Khan’s first international offering that has Vinay Virmani (Breakway, David) in the lead has opened to good reviews on its Canadian release, what with current IMDb rating as 8/10. While the film would be seeing phased release internationally, a good response amongst audience in the country where it belongs to, Canada, is a heartening sign indeed for Salman and Vinay who have come together for an outing that picks up a socially relevant subject (migration of well educated Indians to Canada and the hardships they suffer) while presenting it in an out and out entertaining manner.

This is what the prominent critics have to say about the film.

Dr. Cabbie has an appealing protagonist, some snappy dialogue and fun characters. The film also manages to be lighthearted, amusing and occasionally heartwarming… provides a pleasingly comical cinematic ride.” – The Star

'Dr. Cabbie': 9 Things to Know From the Set of the Canadian Comedy

  • Moviefone
It all started with a cab ride, fittingly enough. That's where "Dr. Cabbie" star, producer and co-writer Vinay Virmani happened to meet a Toronto taxi driver who used to be a surgeon in his native India, giving the young actor the seed for the idea that would eventually become his follow-up to the 2011 hit "Breakaway."

Directed by Quebec filmmaker Jean-François Pouliot in his first English-language project, the film stars Virmani as Deepak, a recent Indian med-school grad who immigrates to Canada only to find out that his degree isn't recognized. Forced to get a job as a cabbie, but still looking to follow in his late father's footsteps and put his medical training to good use, Deepak begins running a mobile clinic out of the back of his taxi, quickly becoming something of local hero.

Rather than tackle a pair of serious social issues like immigration and healthcare via a straight-laced drama,
