‘Beyond the Clouds’ review: An artily rendered patchwork of stock Mumbai film moments3 min read 20 Apr 2018, 01:01 PM IST
Had it not been Majid Majidi making this film, it's debatable whether 'Beyond the Clouds' would have been on anyone's radar
Not many in the Mumbai film industry today speak of Salaam Bombay!, which is unfortunate. Mira Nair’s film, made in 1988 and winner of the Caméra d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, has aged better than some of the other parallel and indie cinema being made at the time. Today, its street-level view of Mumbai feels like a vital bridge from Dharavi and Salim Langde Pe Mat Ro in the 1980s to Satya and Slumdog Millionaire in the ‘90s and 2000s.
