Tajik Director of the Soviet Era, Boris Kimyagarov’s 1971 Epic Masterpiece was a patrotic Ode to the Persian Poet Ferdowsi.The Legend of Rostam and Sohrab was one of the three films Kimyagarov directed as part of a trilogy.
The Tajik Title is Rustam i Sukhrab with a script by Grigori Koldunov, photographed by cinematographer Dovlatian Khudonazarov and a music score by Arif (Aref) Melikov. The Cast was essentially Tajik but also included Russian and Georgian actors including Svetlana Norbayeva, Sairam Issayeva, Bimbulat Vatayev , Otar Koberidze, Mahmud Bakhidov.
