Primarily shot in the Persian language, this movie was released on July 13, 2021, starring Amir in the protagonist’s role of Rahim.
This movie is everything but boring. With an engrossing storyline revolving around a prisoner’s parole day, the scenes are sure to keep you guessing what happens next. However, the only drawback is probably the language, because of which a large audience cannot be captured. Knowing a little more of the message the movie has to offer might pull us towards it. So let’s dive into details!
Rahim, a prisoner, is let out on a two-day leave from the prison, where he was put inside for a debt he couldn’t clear. He uses this opportunity to convince his creditor to nullify the charges against him. What follows is a tale of betrayal, trust, fights, and tempers flaring. Things go awry as he is on the run again. With the help of his girlfriend, Rahim tries his best to set things right. To know what happens of them, do stream the movie!
Rahim is played by the energetic Amir Jadidi. He uses his manipulative looks, coupled with innocence, to deliver a fantastic role. Sahar Goldust plays his ever devoted girlfriend, Farkhoneh. She is able to sense danger before it comes and plays an important role in determining Rahim’s end. We also have Mohsen Tanabandeh playing Bahram, who is the creditor in the movie.
Whether Rahim owes him, money or Bahram owes Rahim an apology is a confusing tale in itself. Money is the only thing that Bahram trusts. With just three main characters, this movie doesn’t seem to disappoint the viewers just yet.
Stream It? Definitely!
Does money seem to be the issue? Well, it’s not money but the love of money. ‘A Hero’ portrays strong and sensitive emotions. In some of the scenes where family comes into play, we are left with an uncomfortable feeling. Digging further into Rahim’s claims, we are left with many answered questions.
A tangled web spun around the love of money; this movie teaches you a lot about how valuable paper, money, can change a lot of things. We also see Rahim’s young son pulling some heartstrings, which is testimony to the fact that money is magic in itself.
So why the title ‘A Hero’? To know what truly made Rahim a hero, do stream the movie. It is available on multiple platforms, including Amazon, on January 21. It’s also available on Netflix, Disney plus, and Apple Tv plus. If you have decided to skip the movie, then what you are truly skipping is a movie dripping with suspense, emotions, family, and friendship all tangled around the chains of money.
