Netflix India has finally released the first look of The White Tiger featuring Priyanka Chopra, Rajkumar Rao and Adarsh Gourav. The title is the Adaptation of the Man Booker Prize-winning novel "The White Tiger" by Aravind Adiga.
The film is written and directed by the American filmmaker Ramin Bahrani. Ramin is famous for his award-winning "At Any Price" and "Chop Shop". Dealing with the darkly humorous side of India's class struggle in a globalised world, The White Tiger is Aravind Adiga's debut novel published in 2008. The novel is a retrospective narration by a village boy, Balram Halwai. The story in detail shows the journey of the village boy from a chauffeur to a rich landlord in Delhi and then flees to Bangalore after killing his master and stealing all his money and then establishing himself. The story examines the issues of globalisation, caste oppression, religion, economic mobility, loyalty, morality, corruption and poverty prevalent in India.
The story has several characters like Balram Halwai, who is a village boy. His character is played by Adarsh Gourav in the movie. Similarly, Rajkumar Rao will be seen as Balaram's unfortunate employer Ashok and Priyanka Chopra in his side is seen playing the character of Ashok's wife, Pinky. Priyanka Chopra took this to her Twitter handle to express how proud she feels to present the first look of the film.
With the remarkable performance of the characters and with a commendable storyline by Adiga and directed by supremely talented Ramin Bahrani, the first look of the film builds up high expectations for the viewers. The movie will be globally out on the famous OTT platform, Netflix in December.
