Renowned Iranian director Majid Majidi’s feature film ‘Beyond the Clouds’ will have its domestic premiere in Tehran next month.
The India-shot drama by prominent director Majidi will see its first domestic screening at Tehran’s Kourosh Cineplex on February 14, a local media report published recently said.
The flick, set in the slums of Mumbai in India, enjoyed its global premiere on October 13.
Majidi’s melodrama is the tale of a wild kid who deals drugs and crisscrosses with his motorbike across the city to make the next drop. He reunites with his estranged sister, Taara, in time to become her lifeline after she is jailed for attempted murder while defending herself.
The film stars Indian actors Ishaan Khattar and Malavika Mohanan in the leading roles.
The music for the film has been composed by Indian musician A. R. Rahman, who cooperated with Majidi in his blockbuster ‘Muhammad: The Messenger of God’.
Born in 1959, Majidi is an internationally appreciated film producer, director and screenwriter who starred in some movies such as ‘Justification’, ‘Two Sightless Eyes’ and ‘Boycott’ from 1981 to 1985.
He has directed a bunch of films from 1991 to 2017, winning a Crystal Simorgh from the Fajr International Film Festival, an Academy Award nomination for ‘Children of Heaven’, lots of international awards for ‘The Color of Heaven’ and ‘Baran’ among the other titles.
