Taxi No. 9 2 11 (2006)
(Released: Feb 24, 2006)
After being fired from 23 jobs in 15 years, Andheri-resident, Raghav Shastri (Nana Patekar), takes a loan from Tiwari and operates a taxi, but tells his Chawl-residing wife, Sunita (Sonali Kulkarni) and school-going son, Rishabh, that he works with an insurance company. At night he parks his cab 2 kilometers away from his residence, dresses up in a formal shirt and tie, and walks home. Grumpy, alcoholic and cranky, one day he has a run-in with an impatient, arrogant and wealthy passenger, Jai Mittal (John Abraham), contesting a widely publicized last will and testament of his late father, Shyam. Jai pressurizes Raghav to speed-up, resulting in a collision and subsequent arrest of Raghav by a Havaldar from Khar Police Station. He retains a vault key belonging to Jai which he refuses to return, and is held in a cell. While being transferred to Andheri Police Station, he manages to escape, and returns home - only to find that Jai has informed Sunita about his being a lowly taxi-driver. As Sunita and Rishabh prepare to depart for Nasik, he decides to teach Jai and his sweetheart, Rupali (Sameera Reddy), a lesson that will end up changing their lives forever.
