Al Shak Series: One of Ramadan’s Best

Saidia – Al Shak (مسلسل الشك) is becoming with each passing day a crowd pleaser, proving to be a straight hit and one hell of a comeback for Syrian actress Raghda.

The series talks about a typical middle class Egyptian family dealing with daily-life issues yet staying strong and facing each problem as one body, however this body soon catches a cancer that divides them and weakens them and turns each one of them against the other one. When lawyer comes knocking their door telling the family that a man left over $70 Million to the family’s matriarch “Samya” and her daughter “Wassila”. Everyone was surprised to know that the man left the money to his supposed ex-lover and daughter. Doubt soon spread in the house driving the Father to conduct a DNA test to prove if he is the father or not and surprisingly enough, he finds out that Wassila isn’t his biological daughter sending him into a rage and subsequently evicting his wife from the house. His wife stands harshly behind her innocence while her daughter seems to enter into an atmosphere of shock driving her to accept the money and is shown blowing her recently acquired cash on designer handbags, shoes, clothes and such.

According to the promos, Wassila will turn against everyone (her husband included) making this series one of Ramadan’s most thrilling by a long shot.

The Preacher: One of the best series of Ramadan 2013

Saidia – The Preacher (مسلسل الداعية) has come out as one of the potential best series of Ramadan 2013.

The reason behind such statement is the relevance between the current political atmosphere in Egypt and how the series cleverly denounces the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood and how they “stole” the revolution, though being a family-drama series focusing slightly on politics, slightly on religion and generally on social and family issues.

At least for now, the first two episodes of The Preacher seem exciting, ravishing and can’t wait to see what happens next!
