Based on the international best-seller, and in the tradition of Forrest Gump, THE EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY OF THE FAKIR takes us on a wild ride of coincidence and circumstance.

Aja, a young fakir (magician) from the streets of India arrives in Paris in search of his past and his future. He falls head-over-heels for Marie, whom he meets amongst the cabinets and couches in an IKEA store, and plans to meet up with her again the next day. When he accidentally gets stuck in a wardrobe that is shipped in the night to the UK, Aja finds himself on the run from border police and bandits alike. As he tries to make his way back to the city of love, Aja finds himself crossing many borders and meeting many colorful characters. Will fate and a briefcase of magic tricks be enough to get him back to Marie and the father he never knew?

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. 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.
