Majid Majidi’ Beyond the Clouds is a trilingual family opera
Renowned Iranian director and the Oscar nominated Majid Majidi is helming a Indian film ‘Beyond The Clouds’ with Ishaan Khatter, actor Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother and Malavika Mohanan in the lead roles. This marks his debut in Indian cinemas. The film dwells on the adoration of love, life and nuanced human relationships.
The latest buzz is that Majid is planning to make this movie as a trilingual venture in Tamil, Hindi and English languages. But in his own unique way. His movies will be realistic and so he has decided to pick the regional actors to cast in their respective version to push realism and to make a convenient product for all sorts of audiences. Oscar Award winning music composer AR Rahman is scoring tunes for the film.
“The film will see a beautiful emergence of three languages instead of it being shot or dubbed separately. Each language forms a major part of the film and will be used in scenes and setups that befit those languages. It will not be just a couple of dialogues here and there but in fact, proper narratives headlined by the respective languages”, reveals a source from the unit.
Confirming the news, spokesperson on behalf of Zee Studios and Eyecandy Films says, “Mr. Majidi is known the world over for his true life style of film-making laying major emphasis on retaining the authenticity of the setting and characters. Given that the film and the three languages are thematically interwoven, he has included cast members from the specific states and towns – like from Tamil Nadu – as he wanted them to speak in their own language in its most natural form and accent.”
