The trailer of The White Tiger starring Priyanka Chopra, Rajkumar Rao and newcomer Adarsh Gaurav has been released. The film is based on the novel of the same name by author Arvind Adiga. Directed by Ramin Bahrani. The film is set to release on January 22 via Netflix.
The White Tiger is a 2008 Booker Prize-winning work. The film is about the life of a young man named Balram Halwai. Born into a poor family as the son of an autorickshaw driver in a rural area, Balram Halwai lives with the dream of somehow escaping from his village.
Eventually he arrives in Delhi in search of work. Stopped education resumes there. In the meantime, some come into his life. The theme of the novel is the events that he goes through while being transplanted from the innocence of the village to the city life. The trailer suggests that all of this is embedded in the film with a bit of hyperbole.
