Yellow and black taxis: A vital sign of landscape of Hindi films on the way out

Right from the time when the Hindi films started mesmerizing the audience, the ubiquitous yellow and black taxi has formed an integral part of the landscape of the Hindi films. Their appearance however in the Hindi films has been rather sporadic in the current times, and with the recent judgment of the honorable High Court of Mumbai to phase out these taxis from the roads of Mumbai, it would surely drop out from the landscape of Mumbai, and as a logical culmination from the landscape of Hindi films. It would therefore be a fitting tribute to sketch out the journey of Hindi films through the black and yellow taxi, as it was the first sign of having arrived for a migrant in Mumbai, manifest from his ability to own the taxi.



TAXIDRIVER: If there was one man who was single handedly responsible for using taxis as a vital cog in the structure of his films, it was Dev Anand and this journey had started with a big bang with this movie, where the taxi in different situations formed a vital linkage to the Hindi films.
