Plot summary

What is The White Tiger movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The White Tiger" movie plot summary.

Entrepreneur Balram Halwai (Adarsh Gourav) emails Chinese premier Wen Jiabao (Aaron Wan), requesting a meeting, and relating his life story. He states his belief that the Indian underclass is trapped in a perpetual state of servitude, like chickens in a chicken coop.
As a child in Laxmangarh, Balram is offered a scholarship to a school in Delhi because of his advanced academics. He is told that he is a "white tiger," someone who gets born only once in a generation. However when his father is unable to pay off The Stork (Mahesh Manjrekar), the village landlord, Balram's grandmother forces him to work in the village's tea stall, and he never returns to school.
As an adult, Balram aspires to become a chauffeur for The Stork's son Ashok (Rajkummar Rao), who has returned from the United States with his Jackson Heights-raised wife Pinky (Priyanka Chopra). He is hired as the family's second driver. The primary driver of the family is hiding that he is a Muslim because The Stork hates Muslims. Balram blackmails him so that he can be Ashok and Pinky's driver in Delhi. In contrast to other members of their family, Ashok and Pinky generally treat Balram with respect and eventually become closer to him, though they still view him as a servant.
On Pinky's birthday, she and Ashok get drunk and force Balram to let Pinky drive, which results in her accidentally hitting and killing a child. The Stork's family coerces Balram into signing a confession, and though no-one is charged, Balram is left shaken by this, and in no doubt that he is completely disposable to them. Pinky leaves Ashok to return to New York, leaving Balram to emotionally support him. However, Balram begins to take advantage of Ashok by charging him with fake repair receipts and using the car as an unlicensed taxi. Balram gets paranoid about being replaced.
