Vijay Devarakonda had no hopes on Taxiwaala and even said during the promotions that he was not even keen to given interviews to the press because of the overexposure.
He even told that the film will not be a blockbuster and would be a just a decent outing. Well, the film released and surprised all with the hit talk.
Actually, the film had a good first half and below par second half with not much role from Vijay in the later part. The only reason the film became a hit was that there were no big releases in the previous weeks and two weeks after that.
Already the audience was bored with no movies to watch and when they say a slight hope from Taxiwaala, they lapped it with both hands and made it a hit.
