By the way, you may be interested to know that the budget for this movie was estimated at $800,000 and millions were made worldwide.  Click here for sales figure.

As Gisele Bundchen is asking for Super Bowl pray for her hubby let us follow our good friend MPD's Komeil Oscar pray request!  Amen!

Supermodel's Superbowl Komail gone wrong!

by Esfand Aashena on

If there ever was a reason to pay attention to all the details, Gisele's Bunchen's Superbowl Komail Pray gone awry is on top of the list!  Even the last second Hail Mary (Mary o mother of god! ;-) pass was not enough to cover the wrong that was made earlier!

What was the wrong?!  Gisele's praying towards Rio's Victoria Secret store in Brazil instead of praying towards Indianapolis!

So get it right people!  Pray the Oscar Komail towards Hollywooooood! 

Everything is sacred

Oscar Komail or regular Komail?!

by Esfand Aashena on

Maziar jaan if everybody follows the religious rules like you, Iran would've been Europe!

MPD jaan already clarified that the Oscar Komeil is to be prayed towards Hollywood!  regular Komail is prayed towards Mashad!  The Superbowl Komail is prayed towards wherever the Super Bowl played, this year inIndiannapolis!

your pray direction is the Friday after Thanksgiving sales Komail for your wish list items to go on sales!

so please join MPD and I in our prayer offensive properly and inline! 

Everything is sacred

Definition of Komail Prayer!

by Esfand Aashena on

Please note that the Kumail Oscar Pray is different but here is the definition of Kumail prayer itself anyway! 

If you're in LA there is weekly prayers on Thursdays, you may want to join in and ask them to join you in the Kumail Oscar Pray!

If you are in Northern California join them each Thursday at 7:30PM before the Oscar night and ask for special attention to the Kumail Oscar Pray! 

Everything is sacred

..LOL! LOL! OMG!

You cracked me up!

I know Iranians have high hope and high expectations for this movie, but we have to hope for the best and prepare for the worst!

I hope our wishes will be granted! I hope "A Separation will beat "Footnote"!

Yes, I will pray!

Yolanda it appears you do not know about the Komeil Pray!

by Esfand Aashena on

When you pray the Komeil all bets are off and winner is guaranteed!  i.e. it's a slam dunk!  If you do NOT pray then anything can happen!

That's why MPD and I are organizing a 'prayer offensive'! 

If Footnote wins then Israel will close the Strait of Hormuz! 

Everything is sacred

Hi! Mouse,

   Yes, I can do that, but what happens if Israel's "Footnote" wins?

"A Separation" is favorite to win, but it is not a "slam dunk". Anything can happen at Oscar!

 

Thank you for the updated box office figure! Wow! Very profitable film!

Yolanda the wiki link sales data is old.

by Esfand Aashena on

The link I provided (International Movie Daba Bases IMDb) is the latest one and it includes the Jan 2012 sales which just ended.  The non-USA sales is $13.4M.

Anyway, it's a lot of money!  Don't forget your Komeil Oscar Pray!  MPD has provided the English version, it says:

   O God, give two Oscars to the movie "A Separation", and to the makers of this movie grant them good health and victory, and make proud the ones who attest to its rightfulness.

You can write it again and it will come true!  Or you can reply and just say "Amen!" 

Everything is sacred

I hope someone will blog this movie on Feb 26, during the Oscar ceremony! It will be fun!

It's a shame and Youtube should take it offline.

by Esfand Aashena on

I think the youtube version was when the movie was not available on screen and without subtitles.

For a while the film wasn't available in US and you could only get a copy via amazon in Europe.  After the Golden Globe win the film is now readily available on big screen and with subtitles. 

I have clicked on inappropriate on youtube for it to be taken offline and suggest others do the same.  The more we object the more likely it'll be taken offline.

Shahnaz, don't forget your Komeil Oscar Pray!  MPD has provided the pray in 3 different languages and if you cite it in Arabic the well wish will go further along ;-) 

Everything is sacred

Why on YouTube?

by sbglobe on

This is very nice! Does anyone know how is it that this movie can be seen on YouTube? No copy right issues? I have received e-mails (ironically at least one from a film maker) sending the link to it and even asking for it to be distributed “to all your friends”. I feel that those of us who have seen the movie on YouTube should send the film maker some money - Shahnaz
