As Ramadan comes around each year, it brings along a number of productions to keep us busy during our fasting hours and as we gather with family and friends. Being one of the most exciting months of the year, Ramadan has a special spirit that we keep on missing from time to time. The holy month in 2020 seems to be on the rise, with many Egyptian super stars appearing in dramas and comedies that will definitely keep our eyes open and our minds thinking.
Take a look at the list below to find out what’s new this Ramadan...
Valentino by Adel Emam
Written by Ayman Bahgat Amar and Directed by Ramy Imam, Valentino is a drama that features the legendary Adel Emam, he plays the owner of an international school and comes across some challenges with his wife. These challenges will be the focus of the series, and as always the expectation is that it will be very thought-provoking given the presence of Adel Emam as Valentino. A number of cast members are involved, including Dalia El Behery, Hamdy Al Mirghani Rania Mahmoud Yassin and Dalal Abdelaziz.
El Prince by Mohamed Ramadan
As always, Mohamed Ramadan plays a heroic character who takes responsibility of his entire family after his father deceases. We can guess that he comes from an upper class family or he will eventually take on an important role, given the title ‘El Prince.’ Ramadan collaborates with director Mohamed Sami, the drama stars Nour, Hamdy Hikal, Mohamed Gomaa, Rehab Gamal and others.
El Ekhtyar by Amir Karara
Continuing on after Kalabsh, Karara maintains the theme of law enforcement but this time as an army officer, much suspense and action is involved. The drama is directed by the talented, Peter Mimy.
