The much-awaited trailer of The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir starring Dhanush is finally out. This film makes the Hollywood debut of Dhanush and according to me has the right mix of comedy and drama.
The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir is all about Ajatashatru Lavash Patel (Dhanush) is a street magician in Mumbai, who is determined to go to Paris and find his father. He manages to collect a handsome amount of money and flies to Paris with fake 100 Euros.
The journey gets interesting from here as while he appears to be living a good life in Paris and almost finds a girl (Erin Moriarty), he mistakenly is taken to England in a wardrobe. The confusion grows as he next lands in Spain and then Libya but continues to request the police to send him back to Paris.
Talking about The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, director Ken Scott had earlier said, "The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir is a fable about chance, karma, and free will. It is a cautionary tale about a young, ambitious Indian boy that grew up in a small neighbourhood in Mumbai who ends up travelling across Europe in a journey of self-discovery."
I am sure that The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir will be fun, will for sure make you smile and will have some heart-wrenching moments. Dhanush is likeable, earnest and convincing in the character of Ajatashatru Lavash Patel.
Directed by Canadian filmmaker Ken Scott, The film is based on the book of the same name written by Romain Puertolas. Apart from Dhanush, Berenice Bejo, Erin Moriarty, and Barkhad Abdi are other actors who are part of the star cast. It has been shot across India, France, Italy and Libya.
The Extraordinary Journey Of The Fakir is slated to release in India on June 21, 2019. The Tamil version of the film, which is titled Pakkiri, will also hit the screens in Tamil Nadu on the same day.
