Master director from Iran, Majid Majidi, has placed his bets on two Indian actors, Ishan Khatter and Malvika Mohanan, for his new film Beyond The Clouds. The Hindi trailer of the film is out now and it’s 2:15-minutes of intense fun.

Ishan, who is Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother, is playing a Mumbai lad who wants to earn quick bucks and thus starts working for a drug cartel racket. He holds Malvika’s Tara in high regard, but things turn upside down when Tara gets arrested for a crime she hasn’t committed.

AR Rahman’s background score and Majidi’s technically brilliant camera work transport the audience to the dirty, dingy bylanes where survival is the foremost challenge, leave aside living a dignified life.

Some may find similarities between Beyond The Clouds and Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, but the difference lies in Majidi’s soft touch. The tenderness of romance remains at the forefront. Also, the subdued colours give the trailer a distinct touch, unlike Slumdog Millionaire that used a yellow tinge to demonstrate the theme of a tough Mumbai.

Produced by Zee Studios and Namah Pictures, Beyond The Clouds narrates a heart-warming tale of two slum kids, and how they find happiness in separation and turbulent time.

The film is set to hit the screens on March 23, 2018.
