The month of December saw the screening of the much talked about film Beyond the Clouds by Majid Majidi at the Dubai International Film Festival. And the film received a rave response after the screening and people have been in wait for the movie to release.
The trailer of the film released today, which stars Shahid Kapoor’s half brother Ishaan Khatter and Malavika Mohanan in pivotal roles. The film is a moving story about the power of forgiveness: can one be compassionate towards the family of the person who destroyed your own family? The director-composer duo of Majid Majidi and AR Rahman will definitely weave their magic in this film. The film has been shot in Mumbai — cows ambling on the streets, laundry flapping at a dhobi ghat, and all.
The lead pair of Ishaan and Malavika stuns us with their performance in the trailer. What we can make out from the trailer is that it is an Iranian Slumdog, but elevated by Majidi-style redemption. Raw and intense in its making, the film does not reveal its exact plot and keeps us guessing throughout the trailer.
Ishaan Khatter was named the Best Actor for Beyond The Clouds at the International Bosphorus Film Festival in Turkey and the film also won Hassan Hassandoost, the Best Editing award.
The film explores serious issues like separation, but Majidi has narrated a depressing tale, but with a ray of hope in the film.
