| A fearless man's determination to fight capitalist indifference to a systematic disintegration of poor lives
Ayaan (Emraan Hashmi) "earns" his lucky break to work for a multinational healthcare company that manufactures a much popular baby food formula, and distributes it through their well trained and robustly equipped sales force who are termed "tigers". Armed with his prior experience of having known pediatricians, and now armed with sales boosting tools of imprest cash and other inducements, Ayaan quickly climbs the ladder of success and in a couple of years, is able to turn his personal life around.

But it takes a chance encounter with one of his old contacts Dr. Faiz (Satyadeep Misra) for Ayaan to realise that the much vaunted baby formula that built the foundation for his happiness is actually a poison for babies in areas that do not have clean drinking water. The combination of the formula with the contaminated water causes acute dehydration among babies leading to multiple organ failures and subsequent death - Ayaan is devastated and decides to quit the company. He urges the company to withdraw the product from the market, failing which, he warns that he would publish the facts. What follows is a battle between Ayaan with the help of an NGO and the multinational, with the latter trying all traditional methods of intimidation including threats of dire consequences to the family. Ayaan doesn't budge, risking everything, and after a 7 year fight to finish, is able to bring the corrupt system to justice.

Tigers is a docudrama of sorts but not devoid of the cinematic expressions of emotions and values. Director Danis Tanovic is able to merge the Pakistani culture well with the western social and legal mechanism to turn Tigers into a heroic tale of a fight for justice against the capitalist forces and an indifferent government. Emraan Hashmi is utterly believable, his performance underrated and subdued. Satyadeep Misra is a strong pillar of support, as usual. Vines Nagpal, Supriya Pathak, Adil Hussain and Geetanjali Thapa lend great support. Don't miss Tigers, it's an inspirational tale of a fearless man's conscience.
