It may be a coincidence that one of the two films released on the same day was made by the Khalis Hindustani director and the other by the Iranian American director and the soul of both. Both are films talking about social revolution, but both are unable to suggest to the audience any right logical way to reach the top. Both are crime-ridden cinema. And, the conclusion of both is that poverty is a Lakshman line drawn by a Thakur in this country, the path to cross which goes through the street of crime. Cinema is changing. He is telling the truth. The cinema that shows dreams come true is reaching the margins. This is the new Tandava that came to Earth from Hades.
Arvind Adiga’s novel ‘The White Tiger’ has won the Booker Prize by telling the story of Indian social, economic and political transition. Telling the story of the beginning of the new century, Ramin Rahmani has written a script on this novel after watching all the foreign cinema in the country. Ramin has a fixed formula to see India. Priyanka Chopra is ‘Desi’ for him. Balaram, a child studying English in the village’s primary school, is called Balaram ‘White Tiger’ and despite being born in the house of a landlord who sucks the blood of the poor, Ashok, who made IT his career, is nothing more than a bridge between wealth and poverty. Can say to say that this is a story of dividing India and India into two separate slots but no. This is the story of a new India that has decided to become like India itself. Whatever be the route.
The film ‘The White Tiger’ has no hero. There is no human in the whole story that resembles a hero. This new hero Garhti is a film whose origin is in the village of Bihar, where the landlord still comes to collect the Pajero car himself. Where being good is also an illusion. As Balaram explains the driver of the city, “He is rich.” In this India, a Muslim gets a job only by hiding the name and identity. And, it is only through the abuses of politicians that the nobility need to be hollowed out. This further disintegrates when the same leader spits betel leaf in his drawingroom. While watching the film, expressions like Vitrishna and Ghin come up again and again. On one occasion it also seems that somewhere, Ramin Bahrani has intentionally set out to create a reverse version of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.
Ramin Bahrani decided to make a film on an Indian background novel whose undercurrents he could hardly feel. Just like Priyanka Chopra’s character. Would the daughter-in-law of a coal mafia house in Bihar even think of fighting such a tongue with her brother-in-law? But, Sanad is here that the film was originally made in English. The film set to sell an Indian servant’s performance to a global audience. The servant of this story is not ‘Namak Halal’ with Amitabh Bachchan. He is a servant who enjoys happiness in the suffering of others. The owner maintains it as his stock. In the mistress’s birthday, he arrives as a clown and then when it comes time to go to jail …! But, this is where the soul of both the film and Balarama change.
The film ‘The White Tiger’ features Rajkumar Rao and Priyanka Chopra as supporting actors. Like Mahesh Manjrekar. The real story moves forward, revolving around Adarsh Gaurav. If you remember Amol Palekar’s ‘Golmaal’ then initially the ideal Gaurav’s performance shows a similar glimpse. Adarsh has cheered this character through all the juices of acting. The only problem here is that in Hindi cinema, Ayushmann Khurrana is already occupying the place of Rajkummar Rao, it is too late for anyone else to get there. People have seen Adarsh’s artistry before and it took him a good time to come from web series to web film. Now the wait for this ‘White Tiger’ leap on the big screen.
The third thing that impresses most after Ramin’s direction and Adarsh Gaurav’s acting in the film ‘The White Tiger’ is its cinematography and its editing. Italian cameraman Paolo Carnera’s camera erases the difference between India and India. Even his first glimpse of Delhi looks like a village in Bihar with his camera. This is the soul of this film. Tim Streeto has kept the film tight. The music of Danny Bensi and Saunders Jurrians is less than average and may not catch the plot of the film properly. Since the film was originally shot in English, the dubbing of its Hindi version is Akhtari in many places. The dialogues of the two seem to be divided in two different ways as Balarama and his brother came to get his salary at the gate of the mansion. One inside. one out.
