Belyy Tigr/White Tiger : A war film by Karen Shakhnazarov which can be declared as one of the best war films.
22 July 2013 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

One close look at the films made by Russian director Karen Shakhnazarov would effortlessly reveal that it is after having made "White Tiger" that he has reached the zenith of his cinematographic career. This has been acutely observed by film critic Lalit Rao who has earned unique distinction of having watched all his films with great attention. In the context of world cinema and some of its important directors, it would be a matter of great importance for erudite cinema viewers to learn that Russian auteur Karen Shakhnazarov has something in common with great French director François Truffaut. Both directors made numerous light films before directing their own personal films about war. This is why it can be said without hesitation that what "White Tiger" is for Karen Shakhnazarov as a personal tribute was what "Le Dernier Métro" meant as a personal tribute about war to François Truffaut. Both films are their personal "homage" to the absurdity of war. A review of "White Tiger" would not make any sense to the readers unless it is mentioned that it is undoubtedly one of the best war films to have been made in recent times. Although there are chances that a casual viewer might comprehend this film as "just an action film about tanks", intelligent viewers would quickly discover that "White Tiger" is a successful film which describes the whole aura of war. This is the reason why everything related to war has been depicted by Karen Shakhnazarov namely reporting during war, behavior of soldiers, strategies to tackle the enemy etc. White Tiger's "tank scenes" are visually rich as they demonstrate the victory of a man's mind over lifeless machines. Finally, White Tiger succeeds enormously as it captivates from the start and is much more valuable than a simple lesson of history involving some crucial last days of the World War II when Germany had lost everything but caused tremendous mental anguish in Russian camp by decimating its tanks.
