The best series about Ashora
23 February 2011 | by majidrokhshadSee all my reviews

after imam Hossein killed in Karbala ( city in Iraq ) a revelation happened in shies heart in Kofeh and different group of shies Muslims raised because of that event and also Mokhtar was one of the who could take the revenge of people who killed in karbala . it's the second work of Mirbagheri after imam Ali . lots of history-religion movie have made by Iranians director but lots of people believe that Mirbagheries work are the best between them . his work are so close to the real and the dialogs are attractive and exiting . this series took around eight years to make and you can see that most of cast choose correctly and they matches to their characters .
