Heartrending one minute and heavy-handed the next, Beyond the Clouds is in equal parts beautiful and frustrating.
A conflicted tribute to a cruel and bewitching slum.
Persistent sentimentality - manifested most in the music score by A.R. Rahman - undercuts "Beyond the Clouds" at almost every turn.
What this brightly painted film lacks in streetwise authenticity is balanced by its righteous strength of feeling.
Keeping a step ahead of melodrama is a convincing cast.
The move isn't wholly satisfying but there is enough to savor here.
Majidi's film attempts to use the rhythms of Bollywood without fully committing to the form
Although the plot is padded by a scrapyard dance routine and a couple of songs, this is edgier and grittier than Mumbai's more conventional mainstream movie output.
Despite strong performances, Iranian director Majid Majidi's first Indian movie is barely convincing.
Despite excellent symbols and good performances in patches, Beyond The Clouds remains something we have seen and had expected. The uniqueness of the film hardly crosses the crowded bylanes.
I'm not certain the very dark and grimly realistic elements are entirely absorbed into the unrealistic sentimental style of the film.
It's abruptly edited at times and the emotions tend towards the histrionic, especially when pumped up by AR Rahman's lush score. Yet Majidi marshals it all with verve...Bold and often beautiful.
