Movie Reviews

  • the three leads' magnetic performances and the surprising twists of the story keep you engrossed
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Ramin Bahrani's newest film, the Netflix distributed adaptation of Arvind Adiga's novel of the same name, "The White Tiger", revisits those familiar themes to less successful, and often dreary results
    Review rate : C by Robert Daniels [The Playlist ]
  • Ramin Bahrani offers a kinetic and textured satirical commentary on caste friction in modern India with Adarsh Gourav serving up an immensely watchable leading performance
    4 of 5 by Hanna Flint [Empire Magazine ]
  • it's so smartly constructed by Ramin Bahrani, and so sympathetically played by Adarsh Gourav, that it's hard not to be seduced by what is essentially a dizzy, woozy, taxi ride to the dark side
    4 of 5 by Kevin Maher [The Times (UK) ]
  • it's a great entertainment in its own right, a zestful epic blessed with rapier wit, casually dazzling dialogue, gorgeous cinematography and, at the center of it all, a sensational star turn by an actor, singer and songwriter named Adarsh Gourav
    by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal ]
  • it's a dark, vicious jab at Indian caste culture and its evolution under the influence of Western capitalism; "The White Tiger" may not be perfect, but its anger is potent and it's taking no prisoners in its condemnation of Indian caste society
    3.5 of 5 by Leigh Monson [What to Watch ]
  • an absorbing tale of feline ambition; it's a really enjoyable story; Adarsh Gourav gives a tremendous performance; This adaptation of Aravind Adiga's Booker-winning novel about aspiration in modern India is teeming with energy and sadness
    4 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • Adarsh Gourav is marvelous as a small-town young man out to alter his destiny, but the trick of the tale is that it's an ironic study of the psychology of servitude
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • a thought-provoking story of striving and success in India; Netflix's "The White Tiger", which focuses on one man's rise from servant to entrepreneur, is a challenging, but rewarding tale with universal themes
    by Cynthia Vinney [CBR ]
  • "The White Tiger" brings exhilarating big-screen storytelling to Netflix; Adarsh Gourav is frankly devastating; through his eyes, Balram's singular story -- in all its wild, exuberant improbability -- roars to life
    Review rate : B+ by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
