    Reader comments on Osama

    Subject: Re: movie based on lie
    Date: Feb 20, 2005
    Sender: Najeeb KhurramyPrevious | Next

    I want to add that this movie is a great movie ever made that shows the reality and the fact under the dark days of the Taliban. On what evidence you want to say that is movies is based on lie. Ethnicity problem is not a new thing in Afghansitan and you can't base your support on that. That is the fact and truth based on. And I want to say that, it is only a short scene of those facts. Taliban has done more than that truth, which are not revealed yet and they are going to be through other films.
    I am proud for the Director and I admire his work to make such films in the future as well.

    movie based on lie

    i meet with the film director barmak,and with most actors of Osama movie.
    the movie is against pashtoons because Barmak belong to northren of afghanistan (panjsher)and the panjsheri deslike pashtoons.
    there are nothing true in this movie.
    even the two main characters of this movie, Marina Gulbahari and Mohmmadd arif still living in a tent. the producer nad director never give them nothing. but Marina have a old stupid house now days. The Japan Govt donate her 3000 US$.but the Mohd arif (Asfandi) still living in a tent with his family in the Kabul refugees camp (nandara Kabul).
    so dudes this movie is totaly based on lie, nothing true in this movie.
    its totaly against the Afghan calture.
    title of movie is Osama but in the movie there are nothing abt Osama.
    Barmak choose the osama title just for the Bussines.
    Last few words the Afghan Film staff are not Afghans most of them are Iranians and others are Tajick afghans (those Tajicks who came in afghanistan along time ago).
