ifilm English website has reviewed ‘Paridokht’ as one of the best series ever made about the Islamic month of Muharram.
The eventful month of Muharram and the fact that the event of Ashura took place in the same month has made it subject of countless Iranian films and series. Some of these productions have ranked themselves on top of the list as the best ones ever produced.
‘Paridokht’ directed by Saman Moqaddam is one such show that despite running only for 11 episodes, it has grabbed its audiences favor. But, what has made it this sublime to win popularity with Iranian and international viewership?
The first reason is perhaps the nice storyline of the flick which couples love and treason together and the result of this amalgamation is bewilderment on the part of its viewers.
Above all reasons there lies one that is with no doubt the most important one which is the fact that the show has its premises in the event of Ashura that makes the story doubly special.
