Directed by: Ramin Bahrani
Cast: Adarsh Gourav, Rajkumar Rao, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, etc.
Release Date: 22nd Jan 2021
An ambitious Indian driver uses his wit and cunning to escape from poverty and rise to the top.
So Netflix released The White Tiger on 22nd Jan and I must say I was impressed. Probably the most accurate portrayal of India I have seen in an American film (some things were outdated, mostly lack of internet which boomed here in mid 2010s, but 95 % accurate). You can call it 'Parasite' based in India but nowhere near in quality though
I mostly see Action-Sci-Fi flicks so this was a pleasant surprise. It has pretty similar themes as Parasite and you must check it out. The acting by the main dude was phenomenal and the movie was pretty bold in showing the dark side of our society. The ending was a bit abrupt but I don't think they could have done it much better.
I'd give it 4/5. Pretty good, something worthwhile on Netflix. Don't expect an Oscar contender though.
