Based on a young sibling duo from Mumbai, Beyond the Clouds traces their struggles in the face of poverty, violence and betrayal. Ishaan plays the younger brother who sells drugs for a living while Mohanan plays his elder sister, who works as a presser in a run-down slum.
Oscar-nominated Iranian auteur Majid Majidi, known for films like Children of Heaven (1997), The Color of Paradise (1999), Baran (2001) and The Song of Sparrows (2008), made his debut in Hindi cinema with Beyond The Clouds.
But despite critical acclaim, the social drama failed to garner big numbers at the box office.
