The White Tiger, Netflix

Priyanka Chopra Jonas stars in this adaptation of The New York Times’ bestselling novel that takes a look at the rigid class system still standing strong in modern India. With Oscar whispers already, the film tells the story of Balram Halwai, played by newcomer Adarsh Gourav, a rickshaw driver’s son exposed to the corruption of the upper classes. Society has trained Balram to be one thing — a servant — so he makes himself indispensable to his rich masters. But after a night of betrayal, he realises the corrupt lengths they will go to trap him and save themselves. On the verge of losing everything, Balram rebels against a rigged and unequal system to rise up and become a new kind of master. – Jennifer McShane.
