1. Vijay Deverakonda in a comedy movie
Vijay Deverakonda has been ruling the silver screen, and our hearts, for the last couple of years now. The superstar has been giving one hit after another. Not only are these Telugu movies blockbusters, but they are also wonderful stories. The Telugu film Taxiwaala, which is also a thriller, is no different. We list five reasons why this comedy film is totally worth a watch.
We have seen Vijay playing a hopeless romantic and an unbeatable rowdy. We have seen him play the boy-next-door and the charming hero. For the first time, Vijay tries his hand at comedy. And as you would expect, he excels at it, without a doubt.
2. A quirky love story
Vijay’s character Shiva, and Priyanka Jawalkar’s character Anu, are the couple you will be rooting for in Taxiwaala. The cabbie Shiva and the doctor Anu end up falling in love in the weirdest manner possible. Their love is contemporary and all things relatable. But there’s an extra element, something as simple as a jacket, that takes the credit.
3. One haunted car
You know the car is important when the film’s title has something to do with it. Vijay’s Taxiwaala, obviously, is about a taxi. But this isn’t your ordinary taxi. A vintage car, modified to grab eyeballs at every turn, is what Shiva drives. While his passengers change, there’s someone constantly travelling with him. Why? How? Who? Watch the film.
4. Introduction to astral projection
Taxiwaala introduces its viewers to the never-before-heard concept of astral projection. The haunted car, the weird behaviour, the messy deaths…All of it boils down to one experiment. It might feel like watching two movies in one. Both, with its own storylines, characters and plot twists. Double treat!
5. Value of life
One of the two morals that Taxiwaala teaches us is valuing life. You never know what may happen next. Sometimes it can be one wrong product or one wrong gesture that can take someone’s life. The smallest of things could also save a life.
