The White Tiger (2021)

Back in 2009 I wrote what was (for me) a fairly extensive review of Aravind Adiga's Booker-winning novel The White Tiger, a story now encapsulated as an extraordinary movie directed by Rahmin Bahrani for Netflix.

Any sense that this might be an outsider's perspective on India is dispelled in this no-punches-pulled adaptation, far more in fact than a mere adaptation, thanks in part to the winning performance of Adarsh Gourav, yet also the sense that enough years have passed since publication to make this something of a period piece.
