Director Rahul Sankrityan's Telugu movie Taxiwala (Taxiwaala) starring Vijay Deverakonda, Priyanka Jawalkar and Malavika Nair, has received positive review and rating from the audience.
Taxiwala is a supernatural comedy thriller film, which has debutant director Rahul Sankrityan's script and dialogues. The film has been bankrolled by SKN, Bunny Vas, V Vamshi Krishna Reddy and Pramod Uppalapati under the banners UV Creations and GA2 Pictures. The movie has received a U/A certificate and its runtime is 2.10 hours.
Taxiwala movie story: The film is about a young guy Vijay, who is a graduate, but becomes taxi driver to earn his livelihood. He gets into all sorts of troubles because of his car. Incidentally, a ghost becomes his passenger and it has a few problems. How Vijay resolves them forms the crux of the movie.
Analysis: Debutant director Rahul Sankrityan has chosen an interesting script and laced it with horror, situational comedy and many supernatural elements. He has narrated the story in a superb manner. The second half is dragging and slow, but it is thrilling and entertaining, say the filmgoers.
The story revolves around Vijay who happens to be a taxi driver. Incidentally, a ghost happens to become Vijay's co-passenger. That ghost has few problems and how Vijay resolves them forms the basic essence.
Performances: Vijay Deverakonda has delivered a good performance, which is the highlight of Taxiwala. Priyanka Jawalkar and Malavika Nair have done justice to their roles and their chemistry with Vijay is good. Ravi Prakash, Uttej and others have done their job well and they are also assets of the film, say the audience.
Technical: Taxiwala has decent production values and Jakes Bejoy's background score, Sujith Sarang's picturisation, Saikumar Reddy's punch dialogues and good VFX works are the attractions on the technical front, add the viewers.

#Taxiwaala is different and has a story to tell. A film that takes help of big production houses (Geetha Arts and UV Creation) and a hot star @TheDeverakonda to take content to a bigger set of audiences. A decent content film amidst a flurry of formulaic and beaten films!
Good first half, nice taking by Rahul. @TheDeverakonda was natural and fab - he's such a good actor. Has an interesting premise about supernatural elements in the car and those scenes were nice. Maate vinadhuga was picturized with elan. Priyanka and the friend guy #TaxiWaala Decent second half. Overall a good watch with a different concept. @Rahul_Sankrityn is a brilliant talent and he got a terrific performer in vijay to explore the different genre. The ground is free for VJ for 2 weeks. First half is fun and 2nd half has story. Liked it #TaxiWaala
#Taxiwaala It is a decent one time watch with good comedy. I was thoroughly entertained. #VijayDevarakonda is amazing like usual. Everyone must appreciate him, his originality, and how genuine/relatable he is. Support him and watch the film. Lets help him bag a hit after piracy
