It has been a while since the "Yaghi" series began its broadcast and has gained a large audience. "Yaghi" had a banging start and gradually, more leaves were added to its story. We still have a long way to go until the end of the "Yaghi" series, but we can still get a general understanding of this series and the process it has taken. Regardless of its quality and its strengths and weaknesses, "Yaghi" has some significant positive features that allow us to consider it as an excellent model for the rest of Iranian cinema.
Wrestling is the national sport of our Iranian people. There are many prominent wrestlers and wrestlers in our contemporary history who have always had a special place among people. Despite the fact that wrestling does not have the noise of other sports such as football or volleyball, it is still very popular in Iran. The most important strength of "Rogue" is that it has chosen the ship as the driving force of its story. A lot of big and small things happen in the series, but Javed's main goal is always to enter the national wrestling team and participate in the World Cup. The interesting thing is that by the way, wrestling is a popular sport of the lower classes of society, that is, people of their own kind. This has caused a strong and believable logic to be woven into the heart of this series.
In the history of Hollywood, many different movies have been made about baseball and basketball, which are the main sports of this country. Even in Bollywood, you can find several different movies about cricket, India's national sport. But in Iranian cinema, wrestling has never been considered in that way. In fact, very few sports movies and series have ever been made. Now we are on the side of a series that has placed this abandoned national sport in the center of its story and has been able to act as a great advertising work for wrestling. To be fair, the scenes of the wrestling matches are very well and excitingly depicted. Maybe this has increased people's acceptance of this sport. It was rumored that after the airing of the "Rebel" series, the number of registrations in the country's wrestling clubs has increased. What is better than this?
Until a few years ago, a clip that was widely circulated among people was a scene from The movie was "Special Line" (Mustafa Kiai-1392), where Homan Sidi bitterly tells his favorite girl that he left her for money and went to another person. Basically, realism has always had a special place in Iranian cinema. This realism has caused that love does not play a prominent role in the works of mainstream Iranian cinema. If there is any love, it is accompanied by betrayal and bitterness and other such cases.
Now in Yaghi, we are dealing with a boy and a girl who have a sincere and unconditional love for each other, even if they are thousands of kilometers apart. be between them and live in two different continents. The love between Javed and Abra seems impossible in the real world. It is very unlikely that one of the parties of a romantic relationship will migrate to Europe and still wait for his lover! But is cinema nothing but dreaming and experiencing impossible dreams? "Yaghi" has very well managed to show a pure love between two people who are not willing to forget each other under any circumstances. It is this love that has become their main motivation to continue living. Considering the high impact of this series, the audience of this series will definitely be influenced by this charming romantic relationship.
3. From the carpet to the throne
Yaghi is the story of a teenage boy who comes from the neighborhoods in the south of the city It is from poverty, poverty, addiction and a thousand other social crises, it strives and reaches high levels of success. Basically, the south of the city has not been given much attention in Iranian cinema, if we have seen the south of the city, the emphasis has been on their poverty and deprivation. We have never been so close to these characters as in the "Yaghi" series, it is rare that the audience of Iranian cinema products see some tangible and believable characters from poor areas who are really only looking for a better life. Mohammad Kart is not looking for a festival, nor does he want to receive critical acclaim, he only wants to narrate the stories he has seen in his own life. There are people who watch his success story in the south of Tehran or deprived cities. "Rebel" can become a good motivation for them. It can teach them that their lives are not supposed to end in the same mess and full of poverty and misery. It is true that Bahman and Tala play a big role in Javid's success, but Javid completes many of the main important events of the series with his own perseverance. It is Javed who works at night so that he can provide the money needed for the lawyer and get the birth certificate, it is Javed who personally goes to Bahman club and He insists to give him another chance, this is Javed who appreciates the opportunity he gets and with serious and heavy training, he succeeds in the provincial competitions and qualifying for the national team. For a teenager of Javed's age and in his condition, such perseverance is a great motivation.
Basically, there is a lot of empty space for a hero like Javed in Iranian cinema. It is rare to see such an active and dynamic hero. A person who strives to achieve his right, stands up against his opponents, does not give in to forceful words, and solves his problems physically and face to face.
4. In the heart of the street
One of the criticisms that are always raised about Iranian cinema is this that we are on the side of apartment works that start and end their story with several characters and in several limited places. Of course, this is partially due to the lack of funds in Iranian works. It is not really possible to find such a budget that a director or writer can implement any idea he has in his head. But this issue has caused the anger of cinema audiences to some extent. There is really no reason for an audience to continue watching all these movies and series that are all similar and in the same places. The characteristic of Mohammad Kart is that he made the most of the huge budget available to him and presented an excellent street work.
Many of the events of the "Yaghi" series took place in the heart of the street and among ordinary people. they give. Kart boldly tells his story in the streets and back alleys of Tehran. The strong point of his work can be seen in the acid attack scene. Iranian cinema is not rich enough to rent an entire street for filming like Hollywood works. With all these limitations, Mohammad Kart managed to narrate his story in the heart of the urban atmosphere of today's Iran. "Yaghi" is the story of a boy who wants to succeed from the heart of the poor streets and alleys of the city, and Mohammad Kart has done nothing to draw the streets that have kept this boy's childhood and adolescence.
This issue has always been raised that adaptation is one of the factors of strengthening cinema Every country is The more adaptations there are, the more powerful the stories that come to the screen will be. Because novels and stories that are published in book form usually have a master writer behind them who has thought for each part of the story and has implemented a strong and structured drama. As expected, in our cinema, which always has the problem of weak scripts, the empty space of adaptation works is also strongly felt. In his first serial production experience, Mohammad Kart has decided to adapt the novel "Salto" by Mehdi Afroozmanesh. Now that "Yaghi" has become widely popular and has even increased the sales of the novel from which it was adapted, we will definitely soon witness a new wave of adaptations in Iranian cinema. Another point is the courage of Mohammad Kart in announcing that his work is an adaptation. Iranian directors always strangely insist on the fact that the scripts and plans have always been the product of their own minds, there are many different legal cases from different films and series of Iranian cinema, and there are many rumors behind them. Now we are on the side of a young filmmaker who has announced his work as an adaptation very easily and unassumingly, far from the conventional rules of Iranian cinema.
- From the novel "Salto" to the series "Yagi" A different story from the city of Tehran
"Yaghi" is not a perfect series. It appeared very strong in the initial parts and gradually declined. The trend of the story is such that we will probably see more decline in the future, but so far, this series has managed to become a respectable and influential work due to the things mentioned above. The five cases mentioned in this article are among the strengths of "Yaghi" that if other Iranian films and series are considered, Iranian cinema will definitely face a serious leap.
