The White Tiger

“Is there any hatred on earth like the hatred of the number two servant for the number one?”

Terrific. Every comparison to Parasite is more apt than I thought it would be, though the Netflix of this all maybe makes it even more accessible. I shudder to think of somebody watching this and thinking the perils of capitalism depicted are only specific to India, or even thinking that the Balram at the end has figured out how to be “The Good Capitalist” but there’s no reason to get myself upset about a person I’ve just made up!
