Shiraz (1928)

Number of Times Seen – 1 (11 Aug 2022)

Brief Synopsis – Love story about a young girl in India who is kidnapped and sold as a slave, but then meets the prince who falls in love with her.

My Take on it – Intriguing romance that is told in a very unique way. The story flows quite well and the fact that it is based on a real story adds to things.  I really liked the way that they tell this story despite the fact that the use of title cards makes things a bit more complex since there is lots and lots of dialogue.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In 2017, the film received a restoration from the original camera negative and a preservation film master by the British Film Institute, with a new music score composed by Anoushka Shankar. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
