Beyond the Clouds Trailer

Iranian master Majid Majidi’s upcoming film Beyond the Clouds, which introduces Shahid Kapoor’s baby brother Ishaan Khatter, traverses the way most foreign filmmakers do when they make a film on India. The focus is on life below the poverty line (comparisons to Slumdog Millionaire is inevitable here). In Majidi’s hands though, one might expect something magical to come out of it.

Beyond the Clouds, whose trailer has just been released, revolves around an orphan battling life in the slums and looking for an easy route to riches. And then, fortune plays its own card to make the woman he loves pay for his crimes.

Check out the trailer here:

 
Ishaan promises to be a talent to reckon with his intense act (and is as good a dancer as his brother), while Malavika Mohanan is nothing short of riveting towards the end of the trailer. Filmmaker Goutam Ghose returns to the big screen as an actor, while AR Rahman lends a groovy tune to the film.
