A laugh-a-minute ride
1 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's good to laugh out loud and Dr. Cabbie made sure I did just that. This movie documents the struggle of one Dr. Deepak Chopra, (not the famous one), which is not unlike that of many qualified immigrants who come to Canada. Now sure there are moments of pathos and angst where you really feel for the protagonist (Vinay Virmani, who we last saw in Breakaway), but the overall tone of the movie is cheerful and uplifting. And did I say funny? Yes I did and I'll say it again because there's plenty to chuckle about. The laughs are provided mainly by the support cast of Tony (Kunal Nayar aka Raj of Big Bang Theory), Lillette Dubey from First Exotic Marigold Hotel who plays Virmani's mother, and the talented duo of Mircea Monroe and Rizwan Manji. Virmani shines as he goes about his role of the quietly hurting young man who's forced to drive a cab even though he holds a medical degree. Clearly this is an actor to watch out for. Female romantic lead Adrianne Palicki (soon to be seen opposite Canadian Keanu Reeves in John Wick) has the look of someone who was made for Hollywood stardom. Kunal Nayyar seems to enjoy taking a break from playing the socially awkward, diffident Raj as he lets loose while playing Tony in his movie debut. So kick back that seat, settle in with your popcorn and get ready for a rollicking ride!
