Directed by Kelvin Sng, starring Gurmit Singh, Gan Mei Yan, Jazreel Low, Lai Meng and Mark Lee. Taxi! Taxi! is a comedy about the society depicted in the urban city of Singapore. It is illustrated through  the encounters of two characters who are in what is widely perceived as the most sociable profession on the island taxi drivers. It is inspired by popular blogger Dr Cai Mingjie’s real life accounts as a taxi driver in his bestseller “Diary Of A Taxi Driver: True Stories”.  From Singapore’s Most Educated Cabdriver”, the movie follows the trials and adversities of a retrenched microbiology scientist, Professor Chua, as he turns to taxi driving after several failed job attempts. Along the way, he befriends a veteran taxi driver-Ah Tau whom he didn’t quite start off as friends with. The two men, who appear to be polar opposites of each other in every aspect from educational levels, personalities, attitudes toward life and even the languages that they speak, eventually find themselves interdependent and influencing each other in ways that they probably had never imagined possible.
