A very believable depiction of the life of prophet Yusuf (pbuh)
I must say i'm impressed,
i saw this TV series a couple a times on the tele, but never paid good attention until now. This movie succeeds exceptionally well in depicting the life of a prophet, namely Prophet Yusuf(pbuh), which is never an easy task. Mostly because of the (partial)lack of information and different point of views on the matter. The writers explain that a very thorough research had been done prior to filming the series. When u watch is it, u kinda feel that the story sits 'right'.
The lead character plays his role very believable and puts on screen a very lovable pure character. Almost the purity level of a child. The actor himself explains in one of his interviews that he secluded himself from social life for almost three years so that he could adapt himself to the mindset of a prophet. And you can feel that the Iranian actor, Mustafa Zamani, really gave his everything he had. Given that he was only 22 and not much experienced as an actor at the time of the filming. I was also moved by the solo performances of the character Zuleyha. Especially when she was forsaken on her own. There are lots of characters that do a very good job, but this text will be too long.
I don't remember any TV series that changed my eyes in to a tap of tears. There are moments that u feel an climax-moment is arriving and tension builds up gradually and you just cant wait for a release of emotions. Thats the emotional roller-coaster you can expect.
The movie has a very moving storyline and a slow paced build-up, which is a positive thing for once. Great attention was given to detail and historical context. The very good use of location and music is an added extra.
I want to end my words here and strongly advice everybody just to watch and see for themselves.(religious viewers or not).
