Synopsis - Beyond The Clouds revolves around the life of two estranged siblings in Mumbai.

Plot - Beyond The Clouds by the renowned Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi speaks about two estranged siblings in Mumbai. The story describes how the life of siblings change after one of them is jailed.

Review - The movie opens with a stunning view of Mumbai. However, unlike other foreign directors who have captured the city only to highlight the city's wretched poverty, Majidi focus on a humanitarian version of Mumbai characterized by compassion. This makes all the difference.

In short, Beyond The Clouds explains how stiff encounters one faces in his life can fetch a ray of hope.

The movie has debutant Ishaan Khattar and Malavika Mohanan in the lead roles. Both the actors have perfected their roles and done all justice to their roles. Ishaan strives hard to make his role as Amir an impressive one while Malavika appears as Amir’s sister Tara.

Veteran South Indian actress GV Sharada also appears in a major role. Beyond The Clouds is another masterpiece for the three-time National Award winner as she impresses a lot in her role.

Cinematographer Anil Mehta has made his part perfect. The cinematography is simply delightful to watch. He presents Mumbai in a ‘not-yet-seen-like’ avatar even when capturing some familiar Mumbai locations. Music maestro A.R. Rahman handles the background score.

Why to Watch- Well, you may not find the subject matter of Beyond The Clouds as anything new. But the stunning performances of the actors make it a 'good to watch' movie for everyone.

Though the picture does not show up to the skills of Italian filmmaker, Beyond The Clouds will certainly be a memorable one in his filmography.
