Storyline

Balram Halwai (Adarsh Gourav) narrates his epic and darkly humorous rise from poor villager to successful entrepreneur in modern India. Cunning and ambitious, our young hero jockeys his way into becoming a driver for Ashok (Rajkumar Rao) and Pinky (Priyanka Chopra-Jonas), who have just returned from America. Society has trained Balram to be one thing - a servant - so he makes himself indispensable to his rich masters. But after a night of betrayal, he realizes the corrupt lengths they will go to trap him and save themselves. On the verge of losing everything, Balram rebels against a rigged and unequal system to rise up and become a new kind of master. Written by Netflix

Amazing first half!!
24 January 2021 | by ramo140See all my reviews

The first half is really fast paced and really pulls you in. However halfway in the movie starts to drag and the climax is not that big of a payoff. However it's still a thoroughly enjoyable movie that I highly recommend.
