Taxi for Two is a 1929 part talkie British romantic comedy film drama directed by Denison Clift and Alexander Esway and starring Mabel Poulton and John Stuart.[1] Produced by Gainsborough Pictures, it was the first sound film made by Gainsborough to be released.[2]

This film also marked Poulton's first speaking role.[3] The film revealed Poulton to have a strident voice with a strong Cockney accent, quite at odds with the fey, winsome persona she had cultivated in her silent film appearances. She would become a notable casualty of the advent of talkies, as offers of screen work quickly dried up once her unappealing tones were revealed.[4]

Encode By Manudil ''MiIIions come to make their Iives here.'' ''Set their hearts here and get trapped forever.'' ''A goIden nest with no pIace to rest.'' Even the footpath has no pIace here. ''Ember orthe Iast resort, this is Mumbai!'' This is Mumbai. Time is money here. I have to cover 30 minutes in 3 minutes fIat. Die if you so wish. Why put others in troubIe? Ram it in yours? Bombay... the city of dreams, You meet aII kinds of specimens here.... And each specimen has his own unique way of screwing you. Now take a Iook at these two. The first specimen Raghav Shastri. He shouId have been an eIectrician... He bIows a fuse for the sIightest reason. ''Let me into your heart...'' ''Just chiII chiII, just chiII...'' Can you see me, from the outside? But I've been subjected to your ugIy face... forthe past 5 minutes. Get out... - Raghav a.k.a. Raghu A reaI specimen... As in, his bIood group isn't A B or O... it's K... BIood Group Krazy.. Krazy negative I buy a ticket from you everyday, but I never win. Others do. What can I do if you have bad Iuck. Why you bashing my Iuck. Don't you want to seII tickets? Why are you hitting me? -Why are you jinxing my Iuck? If my Iuck wants to screw me, what's it to you? What's aII this? What's wrong with you? This compIete specimen has Iost 23 jobs in the past 15 years. These days he's driving taxi. Just stop here Raghu... Hey, what happened? why didn't you stop? He's a broke bastard... If he can't even pay for parking... What wiII he pay you? Hey Raghu, stop, stop... Now what happened? AII four of them are broke bastards? They're sIy bastards. One of them wiII pay... And four wiII pIay. Raghu... why do you not Iike anyone? What's there to Iike? What I do? What you do? What they do... these guys who hop in with you? We aII set out in the morning, hoping... that something good wiII happen... But night faIIs and it's nothing but ... This specimen has a secret Iife. This Krazy's wife beIieves he seIIs insurance poIicies. Raghu's wife doesn't know he drives a taxi. Raghu's wife is a nurse ..Sunita She wants to work so that they stop bickering about money But this basket case Raghu? He says No. Their son is foIIowing in M. F. Husain's steps. He paints pictures that his dad can put up in his cabin... LittIe does he know that those pictures are put up in a cab. If you want to kiII yourseIf, go ahead... why you messing with others? He drives aII day and waIks at night. Hiding his cab from his wife he shaII now waIk 2 kms to his house. You've been drinking? A IittIe. That's why you're so Iate. I was working overtime. PeopIe work overtime to make more money. I don't understand your kind of overtime. You're going from bad to worse, Iike the grocer's biIIs. You're more worried about his biII's than about my feeIings You're not having an affair with him are you? If I was, we wouIdn't be short of food... Ok, no more. We'II figure it out tomorrow. How many things wiII we figure out tomorrow? Rishabh's schooI fees, the grocer's biII, eIectricity biII... For how Iong can we put our probIems off untiI tomorrow? That imaginary tomorrow wiII never come when everything wiII suddenIy be fine. Money money money. Whether she's on the streets or at home, aII a woman wants is money. Why? Have you just been with a hooker? WouId have been better if I had. You can't even run your own house... You'II get the hooker's eIectricity cut off too. Go to sIeep. I'II Iive the way I want to... in my next Iife. Raghu was ourfirst specimen. Now meet our second specimen. Jai MittaI. He has no idea he's going to be screwed today This specimen's dad was aIso a compIete specimen First he gave him everything. Then took it aII away. Put the brakes on his Iife. You must wonder why he did that. Let's find out... ''Love does happen aT The firsTsighT.'' ''A coupIe of words can make hearts faII in Iove.'' ''The worId sTarts geTTing fiIIed wiTh coIours.'' ''EveryThing sTarts appearing more beauTifuI.'' ''This happens onIy in Iove.'' ''Every face appears more radianT.'' ''BreaThs Turn fragranT.'' ''When eyes meeT, The heart beaTs for The beIoved.''

The Iast time you said he had 104 fever, and the next day His picture was in the IocaI newspaper's society pages... Looking Iike he had downed 104 drinks. So, are you sure he's had an accident? I'm sure he's on his way your honor. Sorry your honour, I was in an accident, But I'm here now. Are you sure? I was aImost kiIIed your honour Anyway, Iet's not waste time. Do you have the wiII? Sorry your honour, I don't have the wiII. Your honour, had I brought the wiII, I wouId not have made it here on time. -Just a minute. I have had enough... If I had the freedom to, I wouId ruIe in favour of Mr. Bajaj right away. But the Iaw accords you one more opportunity If you do not appeartomorrow at 11.30, with the wiII... I wiII ruIe in favour of Mr. Bajaj. The court is adjourned Mr. MittaI... if you have a wiII why don't you produce it? PIease, step aside... Mr. Jai, why wouId your father wiII everything To Mr. Bajaj? Is it because of your errant IifestyIe? According to Mr. Bajaj this is aII a pubIicity stunt... And you're ruining your famiIy's reputation, Like your own... What do you have to say...? Did you father know that you simpIy aren't capabIe of- Give him way... give him way... come on... come on... Mr. Jai, you wiII have to say something... What's yourfinaI word? The wiII I have, was signed by a man of sound mind and body Mr. Bajaj's wiII was signed by a dying man... So if you have any questions, they shouId be for him... Get out of my way... We have to do something about that taxi driver. Can you do something Shivraj? If necessary I can do many things, both IegaI, and iIIegaI You teII me... how do you want to pIay it? He tried to kiII me And he has the keys to the safe Which he's not going to Iet go of easiIy. Either he wants a Iot of money or he's compIeteIy insane. Ijust want my key... the rest is up to you. Do what you want to. What are you doing? I'm going to my own house. Look around you... this is your house. Your upset because of that dude. It's not my fauIt. It's not yourfauIt? Raghu why didn't you teII me that you drive a taxi? I didn't want to stress you out. ReaIIy? That's why you took on aII the stress yourseIf. You've aIways been Iike this. You'II never admit that you've made a mistake. Now you know... I drive a taxi. Whether I drive a taxi, seII insurance, or dance in a nudie bar... What difference does it make? It makes no difference. My reIationship is to your name- I'm Mrs. Shastri. I have nothing to do with your job. So what's the fight about then? The fight is about the fact that you Iied to me. I was fighting with that stranger, I said nobody Knows him betterthan I do. And you proved me a Iiar. I made a mistake... I won't do it again. The truth is- That I was on my way home to teII you everything. But that AsshoIe got here before me and was narrating my Iife story- So you saw him and ran away? -Yes. Move. - Listen... - Look. Hey... I Iove you. You can't Ieave Iike this. If you Ioved me, you wouIdn't Iie to me. You wouIdn't hit me... Hey, when did I hit you? When you suggested I take money from your dad, Or work with him. You think I'm useIess... And how many times did I hit you? Once ortwice? You're making a mountain out of a moIe hiII. This is exactIy your probIem -You think that if someone HeIps you, they think you are a smaIIer human being. You can ask outsiders for heIp, but if my father wants to heIp It's NO. Why are you so upset? Because I drink? Because- I didn't take money from your dad? Because I drive a cab? What is reaIIy bothering you? It's no point speaking to you... Hey... Iisten... I toId you...I Iove you. No Raghu, you don't Iove me. Because you don't Iove yourseIf. You're not happy within yourseIf, so you can't make me happy. You think the worId is out to botheryou... That's why you come home and bother me. You come home drunk everyday - I don't.... drink everyday... And I Iive in fear of you... not knowing when and why.. ..You'II pick a fight. And when you do speak to me, it's bitter as medicine... in the mornings it's Iike your off to war... These days... I'm ashamed, of myseIf... When I teII Rishabh, ''Don't become Iike your dad.'' Ok. Enough is enough. You want to go? Go. I know that you can't Iive without me. When a married woman goes back to her dad's house- You know what peopIe say? Go on... Ieave. You'II come back here To the bitter medicine. Go on... Ieave... Don't go... don't go... PIease go away. I won't Ieave without you... I won't come with you. Don't go. - Let go of my hand. Hey... why you harassing her? I've been harrassing herfor 15 years. She's my wife. Don't go. You're making a scene. Enough is enough Raghu... How many peopIe wiII you harrass in a day? Here, it's me... Somewhere eIse... That man. Instead of trying to make up with me Why don't you go and deaI with the issue that's at the root.. ..Of aII these probIems? Accidents... poIice... Why don't you just return his things? HeIIo Preeti? - Come on, pick up. Where are you? I've been trying to caII... - Pick up I think his Iife and mine are as crazy... My everything, my wife is Ieaving, And I'm trying to stop her... He is about to get everything but not responding the caII... pick up You bIind? Can't you see? Hey... -What happened? What you making eyes for? Huh? Hey... what did I... do? - Making eyes... asshoIe... What do you mean what happened... Take this... Where do you want to go madam? WiII you teII me where you're going? Sorry... I didn't do anything... he started it. My wife's gone, you piece of shit. One fuII fare, one chiId, tonight's Nasik express. Ok... who sent you? Who? - Shivraj BehI. Where does he stay? - GoIden chamber, Fort area. Why are you worried? Trust Shivraj... He said you'd get the key didn't he? Don't worry... ReIax. Bye! See you. Just a second...

Working-class girl Molly (Poulton) finds a necklace and hands it in to the police. It turns out that the necklace is an extremely valuable piece belonging to Lady Devenish (Grace Lane), who is impressed by Molly's honesty and invites her to her home to present her with a substantial cash reward. Molly informs Lady Devenish that she has always longed to own her own taxi and plans to use the money to start up in the business. Unknown to Molly, the conversation has been watched and heard by Lady Devenish's son Jack (Stuart), who finds Molly extremely attractive. Posing as a chauffeur, he applies to be the driver of Molly's first taxi. She agrees to employ him and the pair gradually become romantically involved. Jack finally confesses his real identity, and the couple make plans to marry.
