Ever since I heard of Priyanka Chopra and Rajkummar Rao coming together for a film based on Arvind Adiga‘s 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel, The White Tiger, I have been super curious to know more about it. Now, Netflix just dropped the trailer of the film a few hours ago and boy does it live up to all the excitement!
The film adaptation of the novel has been directed by Ramin Bahraini. The film introduces actor Adarsh Gourav in the lead, alongside Rajkummar and Priyanka. It revolves around how a poor driver, Balram Halwai (Adarsh) believes he is born to serve his master (the rich NRI couple played by Priyanka and Rajkummar) until he realises that there is a way to break free and write his own destiny. He then takes on a different, darker path, which topples the lives of the NRI couple. It gives us a glimpse of the vast divide that is prevalent in our country when it comes to the rich and the ones who serve them
The trailer is sure to keep you hooked till the very last dialogue, “It’s the century of the Brown man and the Yellow men, and God saves everybody else.”
The film is all set to release in a select few theatres globally and will release on Netflix on January 22nd, 2021. I sure am super pumped about this one and can’t wait to watch it!
