Vijay Devarakonda‚Äôs Taxiwala is scheduled to hit the silver screens on November 16 after a long delay. The film was supposed to be out at the theatres much earlier but was delayed due to a lot of graphic works that it needed. It is finally going to release on November 16 and will be competing at the box office with the Ravi Teja starrer Amar Akbar Anthony.
Taxiwala, written and directed by Rahul Sankrityan, is bankrolled by Allu Aravind under the banner Geetha Arts. The film has music by Jakes Bejoy. It stars Vijay Deverakonda as the hero with Priyanka Jawalkar and Malavika Nair as the female leads. With Vijay Devarakonda‚Äôs last release NOTA turning out to be a dud at the box office, his fans are waiting eagerly for Taxiwala. Further, his fans want to see him in action in a different avatar and Taxiwala promises it.
On the other hand, Amar Akbar Anthony, directed by Srinu Vaitla, is bankrolled by Naveen Yerneni, Y. Ravi Shankar, Mohan Cherukuri (CVM) and Praveen Marpuri under the banner Mythri Movie Makers. The story of the film is written jointly by Srinu Vaitla and Vamsi Rajesh Kondaveeti while the former has wielded the megaphone to direct the venture.
The film has Ileana D'Cruz playing Ravi Teja‚Äôs heroine with Vikramjeet Virk, Sunil, Abhimanyu Singh and Sayaji Shinde in supporting roles. Incidentally, Ileana and Ravi Teja have shared the screen space in three movies - Khatarnak, Kick, Devudu Chesina Manushulu - in the past and their screen chemistry has been good. The technical crew of Amar Akbar Anthony includes S Thaman for music, Venkat C Dileep for cinematography and MR Varma for editing.
With both Amar Akbar Anthony and Taxiwala releasing on the same day, wonder which of it would win the race at the BO.
