Beyond The Clouds is a story of a brother and sister like
Children of Heaven, with the difference being that the siblings
are grown-ups and tackle greater conflicts against the backdrop
of the bustling city of Mumbai. The film is a vindication of
Majid Majid’s firm view that human emotions have no barriers
of language and geography.
The paths of two siblings collide, when on the run from the
cops after a drug bust, Amir a 19 year old peddler from Mumbai
finds solitude in his past – his estranged sister Tara, who in a
bid to protect her brother lands up in jail herself. However, this
catastrophic incident turns into a serendipitous one for Tara and
Aamir, whose entire lives have been clouded by despair and
disappointment, as unexpectedly the light shines on them, from
beyond the clouds. The film highlights beautifully the many
facets of India intertwined with a heartfelt celebration of love
and family !
