An action sequence was to be shot with some cars chasing 'John Abraham'. Unfortunately, at the time of shooting, Abraham's mother was crossing the road and she presumed he was being attacked and freaked out. Shooting was halted while Abraham calmed his mother and reassured her it was only a film shoot. See more »

This one should be in your film collection
11 January 2011 | by satori9512011See all my reviews

This film opened my eyes to Bollywood films, it is simply superb especially Nana Patekar an unknown actor to me up till this point, who suddenly entered my top five list of male actors. The original: Changing Lanes is not a poor film either compared to what usually get out of Hollywood, but this Bollywood adaptation of the story runs rings around it with ease. Thanks to superb acting and some subtle changes to the manuscript of the original story Taxi 9211 becomes a more intense and engaging film. It should perhaps be told that it is, perhaps somewhat unusual for a Bollywood film for though there is a brief song and dance routine at the very beginning of the film as in most Bollywood films the director has gone out of his way to hide it and integrate it into the film so that it blends in without being disruptive and without it leaving the stamp of Bollywood on it, the film itself has more in common with French cinema than Indian.
