Announcing Reel Causes’ Annual General Meeting and film screening
February 1, 2015
While Reel Causes often tackles some weighty topics, that doesn’t mean we take ourselves too seriously! So immediately following the Annual General Meeting, we invite you to join us for some light-hearted humour with the screening of the 2014 Canadian comedy, Dr. Cabbie.
February 1, 2015,
Doors: 6:00 pm, Show Time: AGM: 6:30 pm, Show: 7:00 pm
Running time: 101 minutes
This rollicking, tongue-in-cheek, and decidedly politically incorrect comedy touches on very real issues affecting many newcomers to Canada. Parodying Bollywood productions and Indian culture, Dr. Cabbie is a visual feast with some great dance numbers and colour-rich street scenes. Co-produced by Bollywood legend, Salman Khan, Dr. Cabbie features Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar as the raunchy party-boy foil to Vinay Virmani’s (Breakaway) earnest lead, and Lilete Duby (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and The Lunchbox [Dabba]) at her comedic best.
Dr. Cabbie is the heart warming journey of a young Indian doctor who immigrates to Canada with the selfless ambition of healing others while beginning a new life in the land of opportunity. Arriving in Toronto, he is instead spurned by the Canadian medical system and turns to driving cab – becoming a local hero when he converts his taxi into a mobile clinic.
