Emotional drama portrays caring and dictating father
16 January 2017 | by patil_umeshSee all my reviews

At International Film Festival of India(IFFI 2016), this film won Golden peacock award in Best Film category received by director Raza Mirkarimi and Best Actor award by Farhad Aslani who played a role of Azizi, a father.

Though the title is Daughter, movie is all about caring but dictating father. He is working as a top level manager in an oil refinery in southern Iran. He deals with everyone in family on orders. Not a single major decision is taken without his consent. When his daughter, Setareh goes out of house for a day tour in Tehran and against wish of her father, he gets furious and rides car 1000+ kilometers on next day to bring her back. In search of his daughter, he has to visit his sister's house. In her house his all past memories stand in front of him and he was made to think about his own character that influenced lives of many. Very emotional and gripping drama is developed while conversation with his sister. At the start, we see a short tempered, angry dictating father, but at the end we realize him as a person in depth.

Movie starts with a few girls having dinner party and ends with an emotional drama. Movie ends on abrupt point. We could not see issues raised in second part of movie are resolved. It might be vision of director to keep movie open ended and let audience keep thinking what might have happened afterwards.

I am really charmed by sound, music and colors in cinematography. His oil refinery and car going in and out is shown in top view through sky is an example of beauty.
