Not good, except for the taxi driver
11 April 2003 | by (ohio) – See all my reviews

Some good moments, terrible editing, too much social commentary. Not bad for a first movie.

Srinath Sampath is the lone bright spot in this film. He plays the smarmy cabbie in the beginning. Brilliant! DeNiro got started as a taxi driver and I predict Mr. Sampath will as well.
