Hindi films are shifting releases literally every day as nothing seems to be in the proper domino. Release date of Ishaan Khatter and Malvika Mohanan starrer Beyond the Clouds has been shifted to 20 April 2018 from 23 March 2018 for reasons not made public by the makers. Beyond the clouds is the debut film for both the lead actors and eyes are quite keen to see the potential of Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan because he is starting his career with pretty challenging role that is as far apart from his personality as it gets.
Beyond the clouds also marks the debut film of prolific Iranian director Majid Majidi in Hindi film industry though Majidi is sort of doing the foreign land director making a film about poor India thing as mastered by Danny Boyle in Slumdogs Millionaire. Majid has picked up a raw subject from the heart of Mumbai and it does seem like another adaptation of Romeo Juliet which can’t be good for Ishaan as his next film Dhadak is the remake of a Marathi film Sairat which is a pretty direct copy of Romeo Juliet concept.
Trailer of the film was launched a few weeks ago to heart warming response from people inside the industry, media and audience as well. Maestro AR Rahman is collaborating for the first time with one of his favorite director Majidi to score the music in this film. March 2 has gotten a little crowded with release dates of several other films which could be the reason why the makers decided to move this one because films is full of newcomers and they don’t have any audience base. Majidi has not signed any other Hindi film despite of many producers approaching him as he wants to see how Beyond the Cloud is accepted by the Indian audience who might not be very familiar with his style of film making.
