Ramin Bahrani is the director of the 2021 drama film titled The White Tiger. Adarsh Gourav, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Rajkummar Rao play the key parts in the movie, and Mahesh Manjrekar, Vijay Maurya, and Deepak Simwal play recurring characters. Based on the same-titled novel by Aravind Adiga, which was published in 2008, the movie was created by Mukul Deora and Ramin Bahrani. The protagonist of the tale is Balram, an Indian villager who utilises intellect and cunning to flee poverty.
Balram Halwai, a businessman, emails Wen Jiabao, the premier of China, in 2010, asking for a meeting and outlining his personal history. He expresses the opinion that, like chickens in a coop, the Indian underclass is imprisoned in a state of everlasting servitude.
Due to his superior academic standing, Balram receives an offer as a young kid from Laxmangarh to attend a school in Delhi on a scholarship. He is informed that he is a "white tiger" who is only born once every hundred years. Balram, however, is compelled to work in the village's tea stall by his grandmother since his father is unable to pay off the village's landlord, known as "the Stork," and he never goes back to school. Without a doctor to treat his disease, Balram's father passes away.
Balram wants to work as a chauffeur for the Storks' son Ashok, who has just returned from the US with his wife Pinky, who was reared in Jackson Heights. Balram gets his grandma to pay for his driving lessons in exchange for a portion of the money he earns as a chauffeur. Balram is employed as the second driver for the Stork family, but he is also given menial jobs to accomplish and is treated poorly in other ways. Balram is deterred from betraying the group by the prospect that he, along with his entire family, will be killed.
Ashok and Pinky decide to relocate to Delhi so that Ashok can bribe Indian politicians and spare his family from paying taxes. Balram reveals the identity of the family's main driver by saying that he is a Muslim and that he wants to drive for them in Delhi. Balram joins the couple in Delhi after the primary driver is sacked (as a result of the family's conventional prejudice against Muslims). While they still see Balram as their servant, Ashok and Pinky normally treat him with respect in contrast to how they would treat other members of their family.
Pinky and Ashok become wasted on Pinky's birthday in Delhi, forcing Balram to let Pinky drive, which leads to an accident where she kills a child. Balram is forced by the Stork family to sign a confession that his grandma has approved. In the end, no one is charged, but Balram is disturbed and aware that the Stork family would do whatever it takes to get rid of him.
Balram is left to provide Ashok with emotional support as Pinky departs to go back to New York. Balram understands that even after serving Ashok faithfully, a comfortable existence was not a guarantee. Balram starts using fabricated invoices to deceive Ashok while operating the car illegally as a taxi and selling the fuel to do so.
Balram experienced numerous setbacks. When he gives coins to a beggar, he infuriates the Stork family. Unexpectedly, Balram's grandmother sends one of his young nephews to live with him so that he might learn how to drive. Additionally, Balram discovers that his grandmother is pushing through with her plans to force him into a marriage against his will. In the meantime, Ashok makes plans to pay a hefty bribe and promptly switch Balram with a new driver.
Balram has a realisation about how to get out of his "white tiger" captivity. Balram kills Ashok with a broken whiskey bottle to get the bribe money, then escapes the city with his nephew and the cash. Balram is the subject of an arrest warrant, but he manages to escape.
Balram brings his nephew to Bangalore, which at the time was a hotspot for big IT firms. He pays the police with some of the money that was stolen in order to disqualify taxi companies for operating without permits. Balram establishes his own cab business and rises to financial success. He respects his drivers like workers, not like slaves. He accepts full responsibility for whatever accidents they cause, including hiring the sister of a child who was murdered in an accident involving a company driver. He supports his nephew's education while accepting the possibility that the Stork's men may have slain his remaining relatives as a form of retaliation.
Balram says at the movie's conclusion that he changed his identity to Ashok Sharma after escaping enslavement.
