The international media is heavily impressed with The White Tiger. Charlotte O’Sullivan from The Evening Standard calls out this adaptation of Arvind Adiga’s Man Booker Prize-winning novel as “poetic, engaging and cracking with fury”.
Robbie Collin from The Telegraph was all praise for the cast of The White Tiger. He calls Gaurav “the definition of a breakthrough performance, with a live-wire charisma that keeps you glued to Balram’s exploits, no matter how unsavoury they may get” and that Adarsh is “valuably assisted” by Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Rajkummar Rao.
