Iranian movies are mellow and realistic. Started with 'About Elly' and loving all the movies of Golshifteh Farahani.
The culture of the land and customs are told through subtle dialogues in the movie. According to Persian mythology, the patience stone is of a stone one shares all the secrets, pains and it shatters relieving the suffering. Her husband becomes her patience stone and rest is an interesting story.
Brilliant writing as well as direction. Atiq Rahimi created a piece that's as intriguing as well as dramatic.
Composer of the movie Max Richter composed well. His good decision to make the most of the movie silent is what emphasizes the small bits and pieces of music impactful. Loved it.

Drive with childhood friends.
Always up for a ride. Always up for a conversation. Of all the experiences I've I always seek goodness, good will.
As I was standing at a highway seeking for a ride, old person stopped and signalled me to get in. His body language seemed positive. Casual tone was welcoming. His words seemed vague. With a doubt in mind, I stepped into the back seat of car since there's another old man sitting front.
Opening the door, I dropped a box and I was bit embarrassed. Settled in few seconds, I looked at them and didn't speak a word.
I don't start a conversation since that's turn against me only. People may get intimidated if I start a conversation and ask about themselves.
They seemed old but their music choice wasn't old. Melodious Hindi songs were played. It was a Rexton a luxurious vehicle. He seemed settling and driving.
They were talking between themselves. I didn't speak a word. After an hour or so, I enquired about their destination. He was surprised to listen to me since he forgot that he gave a ride.
"Anduke lifts ivva nenu," said Sudheer. Talking about so many things, they spoke about chief minister's of Tamil Nadu. Thanks to heavy coverage of The Hindu, I could see the lineage.
I got a chance to talk about it a bit.
I became a Bakra for you since you got ride right till your door step." He chuckled.
I shared my hitchhiking hobby. Person next to him took a interest and started talking.
Later, I got to know they're childhood friends. Friends since 49 years. wow! Prabhu and Sudheer reminded of the conversations I have with my friends.
With heavy dialect of Hyderabadi Hindi, they shared lot of conversations.
Sharing our qualifications, we realised we have two mechanical engineers under the roof. Prabhu is a electrical engineer from Machilipatnam college. Sudheer from CBIT.
We have a whole gang. The gang is still there. It brought a smile on my face.
Asking about their work. With much calmness and gentle tone, we do agriculture.
It was a delight moment to listen to it.
I got reminded of my friends whom I share same rapo with. Thanks alot Sudheer and Prabhu. Had great time riding with you both. Wish the friendship stays forever
I stayed silent. I opened my head

I loved the way people are coming up with different stories. A tight screenplay and interesting plot. Loved the movie.
There are a couple of things which really seemed irritating. Despite Shobitha Dhulipala's has one line dialogues, was hard to put up with the heavy dialect of her. Songs really never had any impact in the movie. Background score is the important reason why this movie is as great as it is. Kudos to the composer Sri Charan Paakala
“I am not who you think I am; I am not who I think I am; I am who I think you think I am ”
― Thomas Cooley,
Jay Shetty quoted this during one of his interviews. This lines precisely says how we assume others perceptions on us and lead our life. Thomas Cooley put it better.
"I am not who you think I am; I am not who I think I am; I am who I think you think I am."
Here one validates others' perceptions on themselves and tend to grow up basing on their perceptions.
This quote is worthy of discussion and debate.
