ifilm selects for this Saturday ‘Private Party’ by director of popular series ‘Detective Alavi’.
Hassan Hedayat is at the helm of this weekend’s movie on ifilm which takes place in a historical setting during the reign of former Iran dictator Reza Shah.
Looking at film and series credits of the director, it is quite visible Hedayat is fond of a combo genre of historical and detective.
ifilmers may well remember the director’s ‘Detective Alavi’ and its sequel with a grabbing theme on unraveling mysteries.
‘Private Party’ also bears the director’s hallmark in terms of being a historical film, though the real sense of a mystery to unravel is something that you should watch and share with ifilmers at the comments section down here. Giving you a hint, it is beyond what you think as a mystery.
