16 November 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Pleasingly comical cinematic ride with appealing characters, snappy dialogue and an issue that will resonate with audiences.

Dr. Cabbie does something interesting. It takes a rather serious subject — the fact that immigrants bring vital skills to Canada that are cruelly wasted — and milks the issue for its comic possibilities. It does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works.

Much credit resides with the star, Vinay Virmani, who came up with the story and co-wrote the screenplay.

Virmani plays Deepak, who immediately upon graduating from medical school in India, packs up his mom and moves to Toronto to stay with Uncle Vijay (who actually lives in Mississauga) with the expectation of starting a medical practice in the so-called "land of opportunity."

Reality and disillusion quickly set in when it becomes clear the door is firmly closed and Deepak soon finds himself slumming it as a cabbie, along with a lot of overqualified people from other parts of the world.
