When a crisis occurs, the limits of their humanitarianism are cruelly exposed. That takes Balram and the story into darker territory-a good thing for The White Tiger, which sheds its forced early high spirits to find greater dramatic focus.

About as "anti-capitalist" as "Parasite", another overrated film. It is a world according to Hobbes, not Karl Marx.

A dark and dismal morality tale of needless strife and wasted ambition
January 29, 2021
This energetic Indian drama bristles with life and humour even as it promises that things are going to take some very dark turns.
January 29, 2021
A darkly sparkling tale of class oppression and win-at-all-costs moral compromise, [The White Tiger] roars and bites with equal intensity. But it also has a polished but unfussy style and an understated narrative flow.

The White Tiger is a dissection of comfort vs. opulence, learning a harsh reality about friendship, and a man breaking out of his personal cage.
January 29, 2021
Overall a provocative, wonderfully energetic tale of class, corruption, and people being terrible in a deeply watchable way, White Tiger is well worth your time despite some unfortunate pacing issues.

Balram's tale is rich and ruthless enough for both approaches, and for any country built on a premise of one class eating another.

A film about a culture of servitude and inequality in modern India...really remarkable and very worth watching.

Like in 99 Homes, Ramin Bahrani directs with an eye on narrative propulsion rather than subtlety - but the film is compulsively watchable. And Adarsh Gourav is a star.

There's enough opportunity to enter the scenery and check your own biases...

The caste system has figured in a lot of movies about India but I've never seen one quite like The White Tiger, which explores with devastating effect how such a system can distend the souls of both servants and their masters.
January 28, 2021
Witty, clear-eyed social satire about wage slavery and the uncomfortable truth how the haves exploit the have-nots. Twice the film 'Slumdog Millionaire' is.
January 28, 2021
It's thrilling. But it's foremost a cautionary tale of what can happen when you spat upon a certain class of people once too often. It can get ugly, fast.
January 28, 2021
Ramin Bahrani's The White Tiger is an exciting, yet deeply cynical movie, one that can leave you feeling rather depressed, or even nauseous.
January 27, 2021
A film that deserves to be a much bigger part of the awards conversation.
January 27, 2021
The White Tiger feels like a fable, one that illustrates how trapping people in poverty so there will always be someone to do wealthier folks' bidding is as much a function of psychology and culture as of economic opportunity.
January 27, 2021
Turning in his first lead performance that ranges from naive to bitter to ferocious, [Adarsh] Gourav empowers The White Tiger.
January 27, 2021
Despite its splendid performances, 'The White Tiger' lost me during the last part of the story. It seemed like a preview for a sequel instead of a satisfactory ending to a major film.
January 27, 2021
Rampant and resilient inequity is at the movie's heart.
