Persian is right to left, not left to right!
28 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

In the film when the Shah signs a document in Persian, he does it from left to right, but Persian language is written from right to left! So a guf !

I do not know why the director or the screenplay writer has replaced Princess Ashraf (the real sister of Mohammad Reza Shah) by a fabricated character named Princess Samira which has been cited in the film as the cousin of Shah.

Another thing, the cloth of servants at Sadabad Palace is Turkish, not Persian.

Anyway an entertaining film! :)
