Vijay Deverakonda’s new age stressbuster Taxiwaala
There’s no denying how Vijay Deverakonda has been growing from strength to strength with each passing film. While Pelli Choopulu sent a benchmark in terms of light and breezy romantic comedies, his subsequent film Arjun Reddy, an intense romance drama, became a cult classic. And now, to follow up the laurels that he gained for the two films, and in a bid to achieve a hat-trick, the young star has come up with a new film – Taxiwaala – that is a co-production of GA2 Productions and UV Creations.
What’s interesting about Taxiwaala is that the film will see the actor in yet another new genre of films after his previous record. Describing the film as a new age film, Vijay mentioned at the teaser launch that the film touches multiple genres – supernatural, comedy, science fiction, thriller and a lot more, and labelled it a “high concept stressbuster”.
In fact, the recently released teaser of the film has opened to quite interesting reviews too, with people certain that, yet again, there’s something new from Vijay’s side. The striking visuals and interesting moments in the short sneak peek have left people asking for more.
Director Rahul Sankrityan had earlier made the acclaimed film The End and it looks like he is set to continue the streak with something avant garde yet again.
The USP of the film is a young team, that received backing from major production houses. Speaking at the trailer launch of the film, Allu Aravind had said, “We decided to give them the space they need. In general, we do give suggestions but this time, we wanted to let the young energies do the bidding.”
Starring Priyanka Jawalkar as the female lead and Malvika Nair in a key role, the film is set to have a grand release on May 18 worldwide. For the audience in the US, Freeze Frame Films - the overseas distributors for the flick - has planned a grand release, with premieres a day ahead on May 17. Keep watching this space for more.
