Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

Highly competent, both technically and artistically, this vibrant comedy thriller loosely inspired by Roger Michell's Changing Lanes was one of Bollywood's most anticipated films of 2006. Shot on the mean streets of Mumbai, it stars the irrepressible Nana Patekar and promising young actor John Abraham as two strangers who meet in an unfortunate situation and undertake a taxi journey of epic proportions. Patekar plays the brash, short-tempered cab driver who gives a ride to Abraham who is on his way to court to claim his right to a million-dollar inheritance. Through a series of random incidents, including a rush hour accident, the two adversaries then become embroiled in a deadly game of one-upmanship. This slickly shot intelligent thriller is virgin territory for Bollywood, but is buoyed by exceptional performances from Patekar and Abraham.
