Based on the bestselling novel, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, who got trapped in an Ikea wardrobe, and starring Bollywood star Dhanush, this magnificently entertaining romp follows Aja, a feisty character raised in the slums of Mumbai, as he journeys to Paris in search of his long lost father. Spanning everywhere from Spain to Libya to Italy, Aja’s travels encompass Bollywood dance numbers, European starlets, and an unexpected trip inside… you guessed it, an Ikea wardrobe. Keeping a rollicking pace, “The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir” is a sweet, feel-good journey playing like a magic realist mix between Slumdog Millionaire and Around the World in 80 Days.
“An extremely feel-good migration movie… mixing magical realism, deadpan comedy, musical numbers and moments of tear-jerking drama” The Hollywood Reporter
