Iranian director Majid Majidi’s cinematic journey into Indian cinema, Beyond the Clouds, releases in cinemas on 20 April 2018.

Beyond the Clouds welcomes performances by screen debutants Ishaan Khatter and Malavika Mohanan as an estranged brother and sister, reunited by circumstance and seeking retribution through a painful past that ties them together.

A supporting cast includes Goutam Ghose, GV Sharada, Dhwani Rajesh, Amruti Santosh Thakur and Shivam Pujari.

Written by maverick Indian filmmaker and screenwriter Vishal Bhardwaj, the film is set against the backdrop of Mumbai’s bustling streets and slums, the mise en scene at once colorfully playful and darkly sinister.

Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman’s soundtrack adds a further dimension to the drama thriller.

Highlighting the complexities of human nature, it further depicts the emotional intricacies of the human condition and how unlikely alliances and relationships can be formed through the most painful of experiences.
