An engrossing short film wherein the subject is the driver Sayed Rasoul and he gets asked questions like his kids, wife and about his tribe.  Viewers will get to know snippets of local traditions from Rasoul's place, the one where he said no pictures of women was quite shocking to know, for most of us who live in a world of selfies brought about by social media and technology hype.  In a short period of time, the director was able to showcase a character portrait of this man who has a jovial and easy going nature.

This Sayed Rasoul sure is one quirky guy with short-term memory! This film has a genuine charm in that it was filmed spontaneously, no scripts involved. Sayed Rasoul is one unique person and viewers get a glimpse of his character: funny with a penchant for food. Pictures of his children portray him as a devoted father although often away and viewers get a glimpse of his tribe's traditions in terms of women and marriage.  There's a certain kind of comedy between the lines that's charming.  The musical scoring was commendable, too!
