Indian Film Critic Hails “Social Message” in Iranian Movies

Nirmal Ch. Dhar, an Indian film critic, who has attended the 42nd edition of the Fajr International Film Festival in Tehran says that the “social message” in the Iranian movies is outstanding.

Mr. Dhar made the remarks in an interview held on Thursday with members of the Festival’s International Department in Milad Tower.

During the interview, Mr. Dhar who is also secretary at India’s West Bengal Film Journalists’ Association appreciated the “simplicity of life” manifested in the Iranian movies.

He highlighted that the Iranian film poses an existing social problem, then tries to solve it at the end of the story.

According to him, most of the movies he watched here in the past editions had focused on the issues related to the children.

Asked about any similarities between the Iranian and Indian cinematic works, the film journalist, who has traveled to Iran for the seventh time to take part in cultural events, said “the origin” of the movies in both countries is the same as the two have commonalities in their civilization.

Also, “religion” is used in the stories of various films in the two nations, he added.

Elsewhere, he hailed works of some Iranian directors including late Abbas Kiarostami, the deceased Dariush Mehrjuei and described them as masters.

At the end of the interview, the Indian film critic hoped that the new generation would be grown up and trained as Kiarostami and Mehrjui by taking the film’s ideals into consideration.
