Based on Aravind Adiga’s Booker Prize winning novel, ‘The White Tiger’ is directed by Ramin Bahrani and stars Adarsh Gourav in his first lead role, with Rajkummar Rao and Priyanka Chopra Jonas. The show follows the epic journey of a poor Indian driver who uses his wit and cunning to break free from servitude and rise to the top of the heap.
ReDefine partnered with the filmmakers to provide a range of visual effects work for the show, collaborating with the director to deliver 181 shots for key sequences that included complex FX simulations, CG environment extensions, full CG elements and comp enhancements. Our work on the movie also involved a number of interesting technical challenges, requiring our teams to do stellar RnD to create effects that appear mystical and spiritual and yet retain their original qualities, so that they do not cross the boundaries of reality.
‘The White Tiger’ was the first ReDefine show that was started and delivered entirely in the lockdown, with all of our artists working remotely. We’re very proud of the achievements of both our technical teams and our talented artists, who came together to ensure that this project was successfully delivered despite the external challenges.

“ReDefine really delivered for me and HBO on this project; starting fully remote before the pandemic started, then continuing to make deadlines we needed up through delivery. I appreciated Serkan’s patience with changes that came up, and would definitely work with ReDefine again on a similar project!”
“The visual effects for Brahmastra will pioneer new techniques and processes that have not previously been seen in movies for the mainstream Indian film market. Having worked with DNEG, and now ReDefine, I know that together we are creating amazing visuals that reflect a quality and calibre that audiences have come to expect from big budget Hollywood films.”
“COLLABORATIVE” is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about ReDefine. I’ve had the pleasure of working with ReDefine for a little over a year now, and throughout the production process, the work has been excellent and we have always been able to collaborate – finding creative solutions for all our production challenges. I am very excited to continue our working relationship and look forward to completing Rock Dog 2 with the ReDefine team in 2020.”
