    My dad while watching this, marveling at ordinary household objects:

    “Oh!! Samovar!” 
    “We had a komod like that.”
    “A bokhari!” 
    “Ghormeh sabzi!” 

    40 years in NY and still homesick 💔

    Sick in bed and didn’t know what to watch… seems I couldn’t have chosen anything more fitting.

    Dad heard the song Awara Hoon while I was watching this and immediately started to sing along. He then notified me that I was watching a famous movie called “Avare with Raj Kapoor!!”

    Found out that he and apparently every other kid in Tehran grew up listening to the song (in Persian and Hindi) once the film had finally reached Iran in the late 60’s, and Raj Kapoor was a household name. Wish I could see the massive Kapoor posters that he recalls being plastered all over Tehrani cinemas 60 years ago.
