Barareh Night's is the current rage of Iranian TV. It is really stupid if you are not familiar with current Iranian culture. If you are, then it is funny: the ridiculous accent, the silly scenarios, the jealousy, bribery, and petty vindictiveness. It's all funny. Written by Kaaveh

A Mirror to Modern Iran
23 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Shabhaye Barareh, is a mirror to Modern Iran, the struggle of tradition and contemplation. It is through this struggle that Modiri (the director) makes us to laugh, and to enjoy our time. There is a lack of pretension, a sincerity and a candor in all the scenes which makes us to love People of Barareh, to laugh at them, to criticize them, and to see ourselves in them. A show that you will not regret to watch it twice!!! The story is seen through the eyes of Keyanoosh, a Journalist who seeks to change and modernize this forgotten village as he too like the audiences is stuck with something within these people, and he keep asking: "Do you know why I am here!!!" . And no one does!! It is a world of imagination and reality, or a paradox!!.
