The Trailer of the film by Iranian director Majid Majidi was released today. Beyond the Clouds revolves around a brother sister duo played by Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishaan Khatter and theatre actress Malavika Mohanan.
The movie explores the intricacy of the brother sister bond between Amir and Tara. Amir (Ishaan Khatter) and Tara (Malavika Mohanan) struggles from poverty. In a bid to make it big, Amir starts peddling drugs. The police get’s a sense of the illegal racket and tries to get hold of Amir.
While Amir is on the run, police arrests Tara. When everything seems dark to Amir, silver lining of the dark clouds comes in aid. A ray of sunshine comes from Beyond the Cloud.
Both Khatter and Mohanan indeed shine through the trailer equally. Supporting them in their trauma is the slow background track by music maestro A.R.Rahman,
Ishaan Khatter is all set to enter mainstream Bollywood with Dharma Productions Dharak. The film also stars Sri Devi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor as a debutant.
