I don't know if I am elibigle to be a reviewer considering i watched this movie for only the first 30 mins. Well I guess I am very eligible to be a reviewer because to be honest, I couldn't handle more. Its a terribly self indulgent attempt at film making with the director under the impression that just showing a parsi neighborhood and throwing in parsi phrases can make up for the lack of substance in general and a script in particular. It certainly is not so. The film might actually have have a story which someone who stays on for the full length might be rewarded with. However I just didn't think the risk reward was worth it!
