Zire Tigh (perB|زیر تیغ) (meaning "Under the Blade" in English) was an Iranian drama television series broadcast by the IRIB network. The series was finished after 19 episodes, and was extremely popular with viewers. It could be seen Wednesday nights after the nightly national news on Channel 1 in Iran. The show was later re-aired shown daily on IRIB 1, IRIB 2 and IRIB 3 for those living out of the country. The show's last episode aired March 12, 2007.


Zire Tigh shows the lives of two families who are extremely close, yet are torn apart by a saddening event.

Mahmood and Jafar are two close working class friends who work with each other at a refridgerator factory. Their families are also very close to each other, as Jafar's son is engaged to Mahmood's daughter. Jafar's older brother Ghodrat opposes the engagement. Ghodrat wants his daughter to marry Jafar's son. Ghodrat and his friends attempt to split up the two families in order to sabotage the engagement.

Mahmood who is the head of the storage and inventory facility at the factory, is fired from his job after allegations of theft come up. Mahmood and Jafar get into a fight and Mahmood accidentally kills Jafar. This leads to a rift between the two families, including the engaged couple as well as other people close to Mahmoood and Jafar.


The cast of Zire Tigh was considered to be one of its strong points. Parastooyi, Motamed Arya, Pesyani and Tahmoores are all famous in Iran's movie industry, and it is rare for cinematic actors to star in a major television series. Parviz Parastooyi's performance in particular was widely praised. [ [http://www.aftab.ir/news/2007/mar/15/c5c1173967663_art_culture_media_zire_tigh.php Set Cookies ] ] .
