• Will Majid Mahindoost claim that he can compete for the Crystal Simorgh (Phoenix) for Best Actor at the 41st Fajr Film Festival?
- Majid Mihandoost, from Serious to Passionate Comedy Roles in Films and Television
These days “Shark” directed by Ali Atshani and produced by Mohammad Ali Ahmadi is preparing to be released theatrically in the United States starting from California and the release of this interesting comedy film starring Majid Mahindoost who plays a different exemplary role gave us the opportunity to review his most different roles in cinema and television. I recommend following me until the end of this scholarly article.
Different Roles by Mahindoost in Cinema
Majid Mahindoost is a well-known theater actor who started acting with performing arts when he was a student. He had his first film experience in “Paradise” directed by Ali Atshani in 2014.
A Serious Role by Majid Mihandoost in “SWAT” (Gashte Vijeh), a Crime and Mystery Series
Although Majid Mahindoost started his acting career in cinema with “Paradise”, but playing in “SWAT” (Gashte Vijeh) series written by Tala Motazedi and directed by Mehdi Rahmani, which was produced in 2016, made him more famous among those people who are active in cinema and television.
His difficult role in this TV series is one of the best and lasting roles he has ever played and it was added to his works and many people, the press and TV audience still remember him for that role and subtle acting.
He repeated once again his serious and comedy leading roles in two other films; the first one is “Reversed Seven” directed by Mahdi Khosravi and the second one is “Selfie with Democracy” directed by Ali Atshani.
Majid Mahindoost who had similar experiences in his previous films, played a completely different role in “Selfie with Democracy” this time. Playing a new role with new plots of modern acting techniques and a bit of affectability from Bertolt Brecht’s method of distancing which is often used on theater stages and localizing it in this film was a new experience for Mahindoost in the world of acting and was also one of the most different roles in his art career.
It should be mentioned that “Paper Dream” was another different experience he had in the world of acting. According to him, it was a difficult and multidimensional role but he could handle it very well and had a different work in his art career. Besides funny moments, his character has a drama quality and is a clear example of occasional happiness and sadness.
You definitely need to possess a technical knowledge and awareness of acting in addition to a deep understanding of the fluid and current social melodramas all together in human life so that you can play such roles in films as if you sometimes get tears from your audience and sometimes you make them laugh.
As I mentioned earlier, Mahindoost’s first experience on television was in a popular series called “SWAT” (Gashte Vijeh), which was produced by Saeed Saadi in 2016, one of the most famous producers in Iran and was broadcasted on Iranian national television at nights of autumn that year. It’s a crime and action series aimed at criticizing social issues and unveiling the world of crime and organized crimes and this young actor’s role attracted a lot of attentions from directors and producers of Iranian and Turkish cinema towards his new acting capacities. Although this was the first experience of Majid Mahindoost on television and it wasn’t exactly like most of his roles, but according to the published reviews about this series, it’s obvious that he still tried to rely on his experience from theater and did a clever acting with a new composition that has been interesting and exciting for the audience and fans.
It is noteworthy that he not only plays very well in comedy films and series but also in drama, sad or family and social melodrama films and displays new and profound knowledge and potentials.
In conclusion, it should be said that the new component of Majid Mahindoost’s acting, who comes from a cinematic family, works correctly in terms of rhythm almost in all of his works; the good design of characters and the analysis and internal examination of every role by this actor are at a good level in the Cinema of Iran. Considering his mostly admirable acts as well as staging created by him, it would be no exaggeration to admit that all of them are full of creativity. They are not only helpful but also very constructive and we should wait and see more surprises from him in the near future. We should also consider him as one of the most important and controversial contenders for winning important national and international awards in the field of acting, especially since he will be definitely one of the nominees for Crystal Simorgh (Phoenix) for Best Actor at the 41st Fajr Film Festival.
