The White Tiger (2021)

Uneven and a bit scattered in its mix of a generic “rags to riches” plotline with a more nuanced character study and critical examination of both western capitalism and the class system in India. It’s not helped by a pointless narrative framework (the end reveal is underwhelming), but Gourav’s great turn, along with some cool artistic touches throughout (Balram’s visions, the 4th wall breaking, unnerving close-ups–see especially during the signing) keeps this engaging through the bumpy delivery.
