From a tamil movie "Anubavi Raja Anubavi" (1967). Note the Pennant taxi galore in Madras of that time:

The Pennants as taxis are nicely depicted.There were many Super 10's too. The Heralds did not make it as taxis in Chennai I believe, but I can be corrected there.At least I had not seen any.
Kingsways are also seen.
And Shyam the Landmaster taxi and the car seen in two pictures are nice. In a parking lot, I can see a Landmaster parked.

Yes, the Super 10s also were used as taxis. As were the Companions, mine too having served as one briefily at one point of time when it was at Madras.

Heralds of course didnt qualify as taxis, surprisingly not even the 4-door ones.
However, believe it or not I did see a mk1 Herald that looked like it was in the guise of a taxi (it had a meter plus was in taxi colour combo!) in this very song from which I took the pics. It was parked beside the last Pennant taxi (pic. showing the rickshaw) 'wonder how and why they could use a Herald as such?!

Aah yes, now that you mention it, I too could make out a Landy in the parking lot! 'not surprised you could notice it!

And here are some cars seen in an 80s tamil movie "tik tik tik", starring Kamal Hasan. Anyone who could identify the red and blue car MSY 1862? Definitely British and definitely some Rootes product. But not able to place it exactly.
MSY 1862 also appears in this old Malayalam film song..No.plate briefly but clealy visible at VDO running time 02:19..wonder where this one is now and who owns it.

Bean's car is an Austin Mini. And btw, the car in the vid is definitely not Mr Bean's car, but a specially setup stunt car with an Austin Mini body. Who knows, maybe even an Austin Mini drivetrain? But definitely modified.

MSV1862 could be a 1947 Sunbeam Talbot supreme,as there were few such cars in Trivandrum belonging to some movie studios
