    Dhobi Ghat is a smart, poignant and heart-tugging movie woven around unfulfilled love.

Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao have another reason to celebrate as a German distributor has bought the rights of their critically acclaimed movie Dhobi Ghat to release it in theatres in Germany later this year.

The film has been produced by Aamir Khan and distributed by UTV Motion Pictures. The deal with Rapid Eye Movies includes theatrical distribution rights, home video rights and free TV rights of the movie for screening in Germany.

"We are excited to work with Kiran Rao who has made a beautiful and touching film about life in Mumbai and we believe it will touch the hearts of German audiences," said Stephan Holl from Rapid Eye Movies.

Set in Mumbai, Dhobi Ghat, which is Kiran`s directorial debut, narrates joy, sorrow and heartbreaks of four individuals who come from distinct backgrounds and how they deal with it.

"It is a special film and we are pleased to announce that the film will now be seen by German audiences. We are happy to join hands with Rapid Eye movies who is the ideal partner for this film," said Amrita Pandey, UTV`s senior vice president, international distribution & syndication.

Aamir, who also stars in the movie, is currently on the jury at the Berlin Film Festival, which is ending Sunday.
