User Reviews

Saved by Javad Ezzati

In the beginning let's congratulate Javad Ezzati for his stunning performance as (Hojat). The scenario wouldn't survive without this man. Once again they have pointed out how bizarre the poor neighborhood is and how the way they brought up has affected the person they are now in the society. Indeed the problem is serious, we all aware of that and no one denies it but does it change anything? How many more movies do we need to watch to know what we have already realized? Sorry but this is when it comes to cliché. I gave it 5/10, only because of the performance of the leading actor and the Ending.
