Netflix’s new film is based on a book of the same title written by Aravind Adiga, which speaks directly to the caste system throughout the country of India.
Balram Halwai (Adarsh Gourav) narrated the film, revealing his story coming from the poor villager in India to major entrepreneur. Through his personal efforts, Balram was able to become a driver for Ashok (Rajkummar Rao) and Pinky (Priyanka Chopra-Jonas), a wealthy couple from a powerful Indian family. Balram made himself indispensable to the couple. However, one on terrible night, Balram discovered his position in the family.
I enjoyed the film for the most part. It was an interesting story and I was intrigued into how Balram became the man he became. It looked good and the acting was solid.
I have to say that the subtitles were tough to read and I did miss some of them. I usually do not mind the subtitles, but these were quicker and more challenging this time.
Honestly, this was fine, but I am not sure that I will remember it in a month.
