Kavya Madhavan, Anoop Menon
It's obvious from the word go that director Saji Surendran doesn't want the viewers to take his She Taxi too seriously. How much you enjoy this film will mainly be dependent on how low your sense of comedy is. If you are the kind who loves those endless mimicry skits on TV, this one could be an easy watch, at best.
Devyani (Kavya Madhavan) is a taxi driver, who is running an old ambassador. Three women call her for a long trip one fine day and they are having a not so entertaining journey in that old car.
Joe (Anoop Menon) is a struggling youth, who is on the run after a bank robbery, along with his gang, played by Suraj Venjarammoodu, Noby and Tini Tom.
Both, along with their own group of friends, two businessmen, an idiotic cop and some baddies soon start a cat and mouse game, after they all meet at some point.
Just to make things colourful, the twists and turns happen only in exotic locations. Saji Surendran and scenarist Krishna Poojappura have resorted to slapstick comedies and the characters yell out their dialogues so that the viewers don’t miss the comedy.
Anil Nair's visuals are good and Biji Bal’s music suits the mood.
Kavya Madhavan looks good but she lacks the funny bone for sure. That is the case with Anoop Menon as well. It is Suraj Venjarammoodu and Noby who comes up with the comedies but there are not too many as well.
She Taxi can easily be included in the group of films, for which you can safely keep your brains back home while going for the movie. Watch this one without much expectations and it could make you laugh here and there. Now, decide on your own.
Verdict: Masala Entertainer
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
