Dr. Cabbie is a Canadian romantic comedy starring Vinay Virmani, Kunal Nayyar, Lillete Dubey, Adrianne Palicki, Mircea Monroe, Rizwan Manji, Chris Diamantopoulos and Isabelle Kaif. The film is directed by Jean- François Pouliot and is Salman Khan’s first international production.

Dr. Cabbie is the journey of Deepak, a recently graduated doctor who immigrates to “the land of opportunity” (aka Canada) with the selfless ambition of healing others while beginning a new life. 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.

Vinay Virmani (also writer and producer of the film) plays the role of Deepak. »

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

21 September 2014 12:26 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

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

“Canadian-born (Vinay) Virmani is convincing as a young immigrant physician, »

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

19 September 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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, »

Komagata Maru to be made for Indo-Canadian treaty Eros steps in

6 August 2014 3:39 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

The saga of Komagata Maru, the Japanese ship that sailed in 1914 to Vancouver with 376 passengers from Punjab, is finally going to be told on the large screen. We have it straight from Canada that the long-stranded project would be the first beneficiary of the joint film treaty signed by India and Canada on July 1. According to the Treaty, filmmakers from both countries would be at liberty to make films as and how they want in India and Canada with heavy tax and production subsidies. Komagata Maru has been a long-in-the-pipeline dream project involving huge monies and therefore prohibitive. Deepa Mehta was to direct the project initially with Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar in the lead. But now the project will be helmed by a top Hollywood director. Eros International has stepped in as the Indian producer for this ambitious epic drama. Confirming these details a source from Canada says, "Komagata Maru »

Salman Khan to upstage the Toronto Film festival

2 August 2014 2:48 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Kick superstar Salman Khan will take off for a 3-day tour of Toronto from August 28 to promote Vinay Virmani's big-ticket film Dr. Cabbie. The flash decision to fly in Salman to Toronto post Kick was taken in a move to upstage the Toronto Film Festival which starts on September 4. Dr. Cabbie, directed by Jean-Francois Pouliet was to premier at the Toronto Film festival. But, with a clutter of Hindi films being screened at the Festival this year, the Toronto-based actor Vinay Virmani and his entrepreneur-dad Ajay Virmani have decided against screening Dr. Cabbie at the Festival. Instead, they have decided to steal the Indian thunder at the Toronto Film Festival by inviting Salman Khan, the official producer of Dr. Cabbie to Toronto just days before the film. While the details of Salman Khan's activities in Toronto during his 3-day visit are being kept a secret, it is reliably »

Salman will bring Adrian Pallicki to India for Dr Cabbie

3 July 2014 4:19 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

G.I Joe hottie Adrian Pallicki has been convinced to join her Dr Cabbie co-star Vinay Virmani in India for the Indian release of the film. Indo-Canadian production, to be premiered in September at the Toronto Film Festival, is expected to have a grand Indian release a little later during the year when Salman Khan, who is the film's official presenter, would be free of his own big release Kick. While the big plans for the Indian release are being kept under wraps, the buzz that's leaked out from sources close to the project suggests Salman is keenly interested in bringing the cast of Dr Cabbie to India for the release. Says the source, "While Salman has convinced Isabelle Kaif (Katrina's sister) who has pivotal role in Dr Cabbie, to be in India for the film's Indian release, Adrianne was not so keen until her co-star Vinay Virmani convinced her »

'Dr. Cabbie' Trailer: Indian Doctor's Harsh Surprise When He Gets to Canada (Video)

24 June 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's a story we've all heard before: a highly educated immigrant who can't get a job in Canada or the United States because their credentials don't transfer over. Now there's a new (and hilarious) movie about it.

"Dr. Cabbie," which was shot entirely in Toronto and stars Vinay Virmani ("Score: A Hockey Musical") and Kunal Nayyar ("The Big Bang Theory"), follows the frustrating journey of Deepak, who applies for jobs in Toronto but quickly realizes things aren't going as he planned.

Frustrated, he resorts to driving a taxi, which ends up being more lucrative than he imagined.

(Watch trailer, above.)

The movie opens in theatres across North America on September 19.

Salman’s ‘Dr. Cabbie’ with Vinay Virmani creates good first impression

23 June 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

As they say, a start well made is a right indication of the destination. If the official trailer of Dr. Cabbie is any indication, the team is just on the right path to promise a good fun ride which is all set to be unveiled internationally this September. What also makes the film special is the fact that this is Salman Khan’s first international presentation, hence ensuring an all around visibility.

Though a teaser of the film was released a few weeks back, it is the full fledged official promo which conveys a lot more about what Dr. Cabbie has to offer. One can see that as a central protagonist (yet again after his debut international outing Breakaway (a.k.a. Speedy Singhs)), Vinay Virmani is in complete elements while displaying his boyish charm that made him noticeable in the acting world. As a youngster who gains a medical degree in India, »
