THE EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY OF THE FAKIR L'EXTRAORDINAIRE VOYAGE DU FAKIR

COMEDY / FRANCE, BELGIUM, INDIA / 2018 / 92 MINS / CTC

ENGLISH

Based on the international bestselling novel by Romain Puertolas titled The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe, this colourful and calamitous cross-border comedy capitalises on the interminable charm of its leading man – current Bollywood heartthrob Dhanush – in a manner that wears its feelgood heart on its sleeve.

Aja (Dhanush) knows little about the world beyond his small Mumbai neighbourhood where he survives by performing stunts on the streets in the guise of a fakir. The death of his mother prompts him to leave for France where he meets the bewitching Franco-American stranger, Marie (Erin Moriarty), outside an Ikea store, right before an unfortunate interaction with modular furniture sees him unwittingly shipped across Europe.

Featuring an animated map charting Aja’s winding route – with particular emphasis on France, spanning from Paris to Côte d’Azur – The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir cleverly combines magical realism with the kind of dance sequences we expect of a Bollywood film. Underpinned by a sardonic commentary on European migration protocols, it’s a sheer joy from start to finish, suitable for the whole family.
