the best serial after "imam Ali"
13 February 2011 | by mazinani88See all my reviews

Mokhtar is a Shia Muslim leader who set up a movement in 686 A.D in the town of Kufa to avenge the death of Imam Hussein (AS). 'Mokhtarnameh' is the sixth TV series directed by Mirbaqeri. The series, which took five years to complete, includes 42 episodes and is produced by Sima Films. The story reviews the events leading to the martyrdom of the Imams and ends with the adolescence of Mokhtar. The film also deals with 16 years of Mokhtar's life and includes the death of Mo'awiyah, the succession of Yazid ibn-Mo'awiyah, and the events leading to Ashura and whatever related to the uprising of Mokhtar until his and his companions' martyrdom I saw this film one of the best TV film. real story and history of Mokhtar. I suggest everyone to see this. enjoy and learn.
