The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir stars superstar Dhanush in the lead role and it is the story of a victim travelling in the lands of Europe in search of his estranged father. "The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir", an adventurers especially history of a poor Indian magician, Aja (Dhanush), that dispenses whimsy in epic proportions. Aja's story unfolds in flashback as he tells it to a group of boys who are preparing to go to prison. Aja brightens the futures of many people, giving a movie star (Brnice Bejo) in Rome a second chance at love and dispensing an unlikely windfall to the residents of a refugee camp in Libya. The film has been shot in the exotic locations of India, Brussels Paris and Rome which is definitely going to be a treat to our eyes and when we talk about music, the maestro composer, Amit Trivedi has given a part of his soul to the film with the song "Madaari" which has become a mania in North America and Canada) and in the movie's background score.
It is directed by a Canadian, Ken Scott, this French-Indian-Belgian co-production is a bustling stylish mixup. Despite the film's honeyed sweetness, it takes some risks (in a musical break, the immigration official who has cut up Aja's passport sings a tasteless number about deporting him to Spain), and its relentless seriousness is tough to resist, even as the film sugarcoats statement of real danger.
Dhanush's Brilliant performance in the film proving his ace acting skills in both South film industry as well as Bollywood, Dhanush has made his Hollywood debut with this film and we just can't keep calm, collective performances. So it is all set to be released on today with a high altitude.
