What can we expect?
The series was not received well in Tehran. The newspapers claimed that it was an anti-Iranian production as it was in opposition to Iran’s nuclear program. But many people think that it was a better production than the series Fauda. The script of the series was intelligently made. We can expect many thrilling moments in the series that will keep us on the edge of our seats.
There is a lot of action in the series but with less body count. The series wants to show that killing someone is not the way to win battles. The filming of the series happened in the beautiful surroundings of Athens so the background is brilliant and looks similar to Iran. Some of the actors in the series are people who are the exiles of Iran. So it brings meaning to the protests depicted in the series.
The female protagonist of the film has done a great job. She is gentle yet skilled and jumps from high places to escape but there is no overdoing of stunts.
Stay tuned for the amazing series. You will definitely find it interesting.
