Dr. Cabbie Review
27 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dr. Cabbie recounts the timeless tale of millions of Deepak Chopras who had come to the land of opportunities to heal people but ended up driving cabs in Canada. The movie strikes a chord with the immigrants and creates a feeling of déjà vu by beautifully showcasing peerless moments from their own life: aspiration for a better future, cultural shock of landing in an alien country, hopelessness in the face of rejection, vulnerability amid ironclad laws, desperate fight for recognition and everlasting optimism. Dr. Cabbie- an entertaining visual treat with a crisp story line and an inherent message. Not to be missed!
