An Iranian Originality
14 February 2019 | by pouya-2220See all my reviews

Zeal , the most special honor of the Persian people... maybe revenge is not good , Yes its true and I know but if its about "Namoos" that in english you just have one word to describe it (Honor) everything seems so different. in the last 3 century of Iran calcure the most Namoos (Honor) of everyman is his family specially female members of family. in this movie Gheisar (Behrouz Voshogh) show the zeal of an Iranian man ... Gheisar has fire of love to family and esteem of himself. That makes him a different hero . Zeal is the most obvious thing in this movie that all the watchers love it , of course after the art of great actor Behrouz Voshoughi. He has many factors that makes him so different from other lovely reveller including his voice and speaking , his face when look in the person that he talks to , his lips when want to say something emotional , his eyes when is angry , his cold acting in normal scenes makes him really natural to belive and I love it. Anyone in Persian language regions when hear the word "Gheyrat" (means Zeal) remember this movie. one of the memorable movies of all-time. recommend to see this movie with original language and use subtitle to find what was I sayed about Behrouz Vosoughi actress... It has many other factors that everyone in the planet love it... manhood and respect to manhood way that Naser Malek Motiei shows + respect olders (Jamshid Mashayekhi)... Great Actors , Great Directing , Great Storyline , Great dialoges , Great scenes ... If you still don't watch this movie: its like you lost half of your life... so save your half with watching this Amazing and Nostalgia movie.
