People were trying to overthrow the Pahlavis for like 50 years. Just because people don't like a government does not mean it will be overthrown soon.

I wouldn’t say “soon”—more implying that the Iranian Revolution is a lot like what it originally overthrew, just poorer.

The islamic revolution happened in 1 year, there was no protests from 1963 till 1977, and in 1963 islamists (current rulers) were protesting against women being given the right to vote since women's rights are haram in Islam.
