A film that deserves to be a much bigger part of the awards conversation.

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.

Turning in his first lead performance that ranges from naive to bitter to ferocious, [Adarsh] Gourav empowers The White Tiger.

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.

Rampant and resilient inequity is at the movie's heart.

Gourav embodies the role with a simmering rage that stems from his own experience growing up poor in India, and it's through his performance--and that experience--that The White Tiger roars to life.

Think of this movie as an Indian version of A Bronx Tale, only with liberal sprinklings of class anxiety and a heaping helping of Scarface energy...The White Tiger is the antihero's journey.

Compelling dark dramedy has violence, language.
January 26, 2021
The barbed satire of Parasite meets the visual wit of Napoleon Dynamite in this sharp exploration of class, caste, and globalization in India.

Ramin Bahrani's The White Tiger is a competent film (and can even be considered a top-tier Netflix movie) - a roarin' good time that could have used more bite.

"A timely attack on capitalism and corruption that will not fail to leave a lasting impression. "

Move over Tiger King. There's a new tiger in town.

Bahrani's film isn't a patch on the svelte mischief of Joon-ho's Oscar-winner, but it taps into the same simmering rage of the have-nots, gazing up from car-park basements at the penthouse eyries of their bosses.

A wild, stylized ride with just the grounded touch needed to infuse this whirlwind with great purpose and heart.

The film rests squarely on Adarsh Gourav's shoulders, however. He's Balram personified. He's so seamless in his performance that one forgets one's watching an actor at work.
January 26, 2021
Bahrani packs just enough into the tale in filmic terms for it not to seem drearily familiar...The White Tiger renders Balram's story, simplistic as it is at times, with propulsive power of the sort that offsets the failings...

Chopra does her bit, though her American-desi rebellious 'bahu' is a bit fuzzily dealt with. But the film belongs to Adarsh Gourav, who channels that very specific, razor-sharp mixture of obsequiousness and rage, to come up with a stellar performance.
January 26, 2021
An intriguing story about ambition, corruption, and the ongoing class struggle in a globalized world.
January 25, 2021
There's still plenty to chew on, especially at the dinner table afterwards.

There's nothing wrong with The White Tiger, it just didn't do much for me. I can't imagine it will enthrall you, either.
