From producer Salman Khan and director Jean-François Pouliot comes “Dr. Cabbie,” a bright and colorful new comedy about a doctor from India who redirects his life to become a cab driver in Canada. The film is being distributed by Momentum Pictures on VOD this month, and Indiewire has an exclusive first look at the movie’s opening sequence.
The sequence above teases what’s in store for the film’s main character, Deepak Chopra (Vinay Virmani), who passes his medical exams and graduates at the top of his class, fulfilling his dream to follow in his father’s footsteps. After heading home to show his mother his degree, Deepak convinces her that they should move to Canada so he can pursue his medical career properly, and thus begins the film’s fish-out-of-water adventure.
“Dr. Cabbie” co-stars Kunal Nayyar (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Adrianne Palicki (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”). The film will be available exclusively on VOD starting tomorrow, February 2.
