The White Tiger (2021, D: Bahrani) S: Gourav, Chopra, Rao - Netflix




Balram Halwai (Adarsh Gourav) narrates his own epic and darkly humorous rise from poor villager to successful entrepreneur in modern India. Cunning and ambitious, our young hero jockeys his way into becoming a driver for Ashok (Rajkummar Rao) and Pinky (Priyanka Chopra-Jonas), who just returned from America. Society has trained Balram to be one thing—a servant—so he makes himself indispensable to his rich masters. But after a night of betrayal, he realizes the corrupt lengths they will go to trap him and save themselves. On the verge of losing everything, Balram finally rebels against a rigged & unequal system to rise up and become a new kind of master. The White Tiger is directed by Iranian-American filmmaker Ramin Bahrani, director of the films Strangers, Man Push Cart, Chop Shop, Goodbye Solo, At Any Price, 99 Homes, and Fahrenheit 451 previously. Based on the bestseller and 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel by Aravind Adiga. Produced by Mukul Deora and Ramin Bahrani. Netflix will debut Bahrani's The White Tiger in select US theaters this December, then streaming on Netflix globally on January 22nd.

I'm watching this tomorrow after seeing the trailer, but Pryanka got fat.

Watched this last night and it was very good... maybe 15 minutes too long but I still really enjoyed it... and yes, Priyanka packed on a few lbs.

Maybe this should have been eligible for best picture and won.

It was one of the best movies of 2021.

I might have never checked it out if Ramin Bahrani was not directing since he usually puts out quality stuff and glad I saw this.

Adarsh Gourav shined in this and maybe this is just the beginning of his career.

1. I thought this movie was great and I should probably revisit it eventually.
2. How is it a 2021 release when it was nominated for an Academy Award for last year's Best Adapted Screenplay?

Eligibility was extended through the first two months of 2021 due to the pandemic.
