Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan praised Iranian director Mohammadreza Kheradmandan’s two-minute movie ‘Thursday Appointment,’ calling it ‘A beautiful Iranian short film’.

He invited the Pakistani people on his Instagram account to watch the acclaimed short film because it is a cinematic haiku which leaves you breathless with its insight, IRNA wrote.

He asked the people to spend just two minutes and 25 seconds to watch the film which received over two million visits on YouTube.

The 2019 film is about an elderly couple making their way through traffic and reciting to each other a poem by the great Persian poet Hafez. Meanwhile, the old man notices a young girl who is sad in the back seat of the car of her parents, who are too busy arguing. He intervenes and gives his wife’s flowers to the young couple to stop them from arguing. We only realize how important those flowers were to the old man when he drives off.

Imran Khan, who has previously expressed his love and interest in Iran and the Iranian culture in various ways, shared ‘Thursday Appointment’ on his Instagram page with about six million followers.

The film had been viewed over 151,000 times and received 21,000 likes until Sunday morning.

Born in 1984, Kheradmandan directed his first feature film, ‘21 Days Later,’ in 2017, which won the audience award at the 35th Fajr International Film Festival.

He has made several short films and animated movies as well as TV series and has been nominated and awarded at various national and international events.
