Cast: Dhanush, Erin Moriarty, Bérénice Bejo, Barkhad Abdi, Ben Miller

Director: Ken Scott

The film talks about the global refugee crisis into a fairy-tale but the film falls flat when it tries to connect emotionally with the audience. The obsession of foreigners considering Indians still snake charmers is quite relevant in this movie too.

Directed by Ken Scott, the film is based on the book The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe and follows the miraculous story of a young man who ends up traveling the world through a series of accidents. This great adventure is narrated by Ajaa to three juvenile delinquents for a reason – to offer them hope for the future and an opportunity to change.

Dhanush has done a commendable job, you can see his sincerity towards acting and the film quite relevantly. Though the character is a Gujarati, as the name goes Ajathashatru Lavash Patel done by a Tamilian actor who distinctly Tamil.

The main reason for the film not making us connected towards it is the fact that this film is written through a point of view of an outsider about India which still is obsessed with slum and snake charmers. Ajaa and his single mother, who works as a dhobi, converse in English, the lack of authenticity is too glaring for us to suspend disbelief.

Overall, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir is a film which tries to show an engaging story laced with a socially relevant topic but false flat. Maybe this film was made just to cater to the foreign audience.
