When a world famous award winning auteur decides not just shoot but in fact make a feature film based in your country, it certainly becomes a moment of pride for everyone. So when Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi announced his debut in Indian cinema with BEYOND THE CLOUDS naturally our happiness was beyond the clouds as well.
The trailer of this highly awaited film was unveiled today and world got a glimpse of Majidi’s magic. In the two minutes long trailer we meet Amir (played by Ishaan) who has lost his parents at a very young age but that doesn’t deter him from dreaming and aspiring to rise above his situation.
Next we see his life as a street urchin and how he dreams to make it big by peddling drugs and doing odd jobs. Ishaan love his sister Tara (played by Malavika) immensely as she is the one who has brought him up but unfortunately during a drug bust operation his sister gets caught as she was hiding drugs at request of Amir and gets arrested.
Now whether Amir is able to rescue his innocent sister from atrocities of Police and whether they ever able to rise above their situation are what form the crux of the story. In the trailer Ishaan does leave an impression as he looks raw, delivers his lines with conviction and is able to emote however the trailer fails to generate any kind of curiosity regarding the film.
Malavika looks promising too but how we wished the trailer was more engaging. Let’s hope that upon its release the film is able to prove us wrong and lives up to our expectations.
Directed by Majid Majidi, the music of BEYOND THE CLOUDS is composed by none other than A R Rahman. Produced by Shareen Mantri Kedia, Kishor Arora and Zee Studios the film will be released in Tamil, English and Hindi.
