Moving and Entertaining
20 February 2011 | by alisbgSee all my reviews

The war scenes are extraordinary, keeping in mind that Iran's movie industry is 10 years behind Hollywood, technologically. I watch Mokhtarnaame every week and enjoy it. You may find it on YouTube and/or www.soltanworld.com.

I think the series have a message to Iranian people. Watch and listen closely. You may hear the message too.

Some tips: " Imam Hossein (AS) is called MORTAD by Yazid's people. Meaning he doesn't believe in God." " Whomever speaks against the government, will be killed or put behind bars." and many other things.

SOUNDS familiar????
