A realistic flick for a cinema lover!
12 May 2018 | by Natasha0705See all my reviews

Genre : Drama Duration : 120 Minutes

Ishaan Khatter : Much known as the younger brother of Shahid Kapoor, is fantastic as a debutant. He completely nails the character of Aamir. He deeply performs all the emotions that a talented actor could bring out. Malavika Mohanan : She plays Tara, who is Aamir's sister. Her screen presence is equally strong. She complemented Ishaan well.

Story : The plot is centered around a brother and sister relationship, however it also teaches us that whatever happens in life, we should always be humble and kind towards others. The story & direction by Majid Majidi is beautiful but felt slightly lengthy in the last half hour. It is indeed an eye opener for audiences wanting to see the real Mumbai.

Music : The tracks & Background sound by AR Rahman are of a different league. No Favorites.

Overall, Beyond The Clouds is one of those realistic flicks, which every cinema lover should definitely watch.
