We don't need to warm to the characters to be enthralled by this compulsively watchable class parable.
January 23, 2021
Through this unique figure, and through this highly specific portrait of one country, The White Tiger achieves a kind of universality.
January 23, 2021
The White Tiger marks Bahrani's most lively and assured feature since his early festival days.

Balram has become a hell of an entrepreneur, but the movie itself can't quite close the deal.

The White Tiger is a bitter indictment of caste-system rigidity embedded within a Scarface-like, rags-to-riches story...
January 23, 2021
The White Tiger has an icy-cool, slick visual style and an unsubtle but effective running commentary about social warfare.
January 23, 2021
It brilliantly toggles between a story of class struggle and determination...exhilarating and epic filmmaking.
January 23, 2021
For its letdowns, The White Tiger offers its writer-director an encouragingly big canvas, which is heartening for an artist whose early work managed to take an inch and run a mile, proving all the more evocative for being so streetwise and constrained.

It's something of Slumdog Millionaire if infused by Bong Joon-ho's Parasite, haunting and brutal in its reveal by taking the ideal high life and status quo and turning it inside out with an uncompromising hand.

I can't call it "fun," but it's certainly engaging.
January 23, 2021
I think it's a very good film, I think it's a fascinating film, but it really lays bare all the contradictions of modern India in a way that is very non-glamorous.

The lively narration and rollicking pace make for favourable comparisons to Scorsese's Goodfellas.
January 22, 2021
It's extremely well done.

If a Dickens novel had included a hero who employed nefarious means to pull himself out of his troubles, it might have looked a bit like "The White Tiger."
January 22, 2021
It's the same get-out-of-our-way attitude that makes "The White Tiger" so memorable.
January 22, 2021
A terrifically cynical yet sanguine tale of bootstrapping.... What makes this contemptuous tale glorious is that Bahrani's stinging social commentary has exuberance even during its darker moments.
January 22, 2021
While viewers may not entirely embrace Balram's dark side, Gourav's charismatic, multifaceted, energetic performance makes it possible for them to stick with him for two hours.
January 22, 2021
This is a film that is entertaining and provocative in equal measure and serves as proof that Ramin Bahrani, after that one misstep, is once again back in top form.
January 22, 2021
Far from Bahrani's most graceful film (but) a bluntly insightful melodrama about India beyond Bollywood
