Storyline

Banned from making films, Hasan is doubly frustrated that his muse, the actress Shiva, is working with other directors. His home life is faring no better. There are disagreements with his wife, and his aged mother is getting more and more detached from reality. But most galling of all, a serial killer is going about beheading Iran's finest filmmakers, yet Hasan remains unscathed. Why, when he is one of the greatest, is he being completely ignored? The hilarity and hi jinks that follow are quite unlike anything we've seen in Iranian cinema. Written by Anonymous

Well, ....
22 May 2018 | by sailaway_rasmusSee all my reviews

Hey, just want to note my idea here, This movie refers to an important effect, about viral videos, tweeter #, ... in few words, "the people whom are not famous in real life, but they have too many people as viewers at social networks". These people sometimes make troubles, show small events like disasters, it is really very nice idea for screenplay. Vow awesome if comedy... Like few other films which made before, for example "the circle 2017" but it was not comedy... But Dear mani, i hope you success in your life, in writing, in directing. You have very good movies, which i was interested. Here it was not good, in cinema, viewers hardly sit and watch. We laughed. We screamed. But there is something in our mind which says "it is bad". Sorry but it is what i think. We are real people, we need to believe the screenplay, we need to live with the roles, we are viewers, unfortunately we failed. There were very good actors/actresses. But final result is not good. Best wishes...
