Bollywood Crazies Opinion: I was totally engrossed into the story and deeply moved with the overall film. I have no words to praise for Ramin Bahrani who did remarkable job behind the chair and also for screenplay. His direction reminds me of Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire (2008).I am amazed with the placement of camera to its subjects. This film has showed the India as it is with the lenses. With international crew, it is hard to showcase India but the makers did it. I personally loved Adarsh Gourav character which is so relatable to the middle class mentality.
Altogether, The White Tiger movie is a class apart film and it is not wrong to say that one of the best films of 2021.
Last word: Watch it for everything and your 2 hours will be best utilized. It is a movie for new filmmakers to learn about the technicalities of filmmaking.
