Baran is the film which I would recommend others to watch. Its an iranian movie directed by Majid Majidi ( Hope some members here would have seen children of heaven)This film is the best one I have ever seen in my life , want to get a perfect example of unconditional love? Baran could be your best bet.This film also covers a gamut of issues ranging from Afghanistan problems and the problems faced by afghan refugees in iran to poverty and women isues.The hero Latif is a worker in a building construction and he is very close to the contractor there. The contractor illegally employs a lot of afghan workers and once an afghan worker falls down and this accident costs him dearly by badly injuring his legs. Later his friend Soltan brings a boy who is the son of the injured man.But the boy seems to be so weak and he miserably fails in the work of carrying bricks . On one fine day , things get seriously messed up and latif’s job of preparing tea and food stuffs goes to this boy. This makes him angry and he hits this boy. Later he discovers that actually it was a girl disguised as a boy for getting a job in building construction due to her poverty. He remembers the troubles caused by him like destroying her utensils and hitting her and her patience makes him really humble. Then the immigration officials spots this girl in the building site and she runs away ( as she is a afghan , afghans can NOT be employed without proper permission) , latif picks up a fight with the officials and she escapesand later he gets beated up and arrested by the officialsThen he travels a lot in search of her and he feels highly depressed on seeing her doing menial works like carrying rocks in a running stream , he later goes to his site and cries to the contractor asking him money ( infact his salary for the next two years and he promises him that he will work for him without a salary) . He goes back to her home and gives all the money to her father and returns without speaking a word with her.
At last when she leaves for afghan , her shoes get stuck in wet mud and he helps her taking that out and she smiles. She was still unaware of the fact that this young man has almost given everything for his love towards her , in fact the hero don’t even talk with her after knowing that she is a girl.I was really moved with this script of unconditional love . This is a real classic by majid majidi and it’s a must watch .
