31 August 2015 | by hlogunSee all my reviews

This is what i call an "Epic" movie . you might say well , meh , this guy is Iranian and after all this movie is Iranian too . i could edit my location to any other place and you wouldn't know , but here is the point : seldomly i like a movie to a point that i cry . this movie made me cry .

as the first part of a trilogy , it perfectly balances itself not to cross any line in regards to both "Sunni" and "Shia" sects . Majid majidi for me is the Christopher Nolan of Iran . only 8 years after his last movie , he has once again astonished his fans with a touching and aspiring movie .

ALCON , this movie is well capable of wiping the floor with other movies in all international events .

This is the most expensive and sophisticated movie any Muslim country has ever created and i hope it can effectively show the real side of Islam to foreign audience .

A.R Rahman and the great staff only add to the greatness of this movie .

my Rate : 10
