The White Tiger
Directed by Ramin Bahrani, the film is based on Aravind Adiga’s 2008 novel titled ‘The White Tiger’. The film satirizes the casteism, feudalism, corruption, political upheaval, and poverty growing up in Modern India.
The story of the film is based on the character of Balram Halwai and how his life changed in the movie. The central character is played by Adharsh Gaurav and the other prime roles are Priyanka Chopra and Rajkumar Rao. Rajkummar Rao and Priyanka Chopra are splendid in their characters but Adarsh Gaurav has given the film a new height with his stellar performance.
The film is based on Aravind Adiga’s novel The White Tiger, for which he was awarded the Booker Prize. Bringing books to the big screen is not easy, but director Ramin Bahrani has done fair justice.
