Successful injustice equation
Mohamed Ramadan reintroduces his usual formula in the Ramadan series, which finds guaranteed success with the audience; A young man subjected to injustice and after him seeks revenge. But instead of the mixture of the super smart man presented in the series "Al-Ostoura" and "Eagle of Upper Egypt", Muhammad Ramadan recalls the theme of a peaceful oppressed who is exposed to injustice from everyone, and that contributed to making his starhood since his first dramatic heroism in the series "Ibn Halal".
From the first episode, the director and screenwriter Mohamed Sami offers a new treatment for a recurring old story, that good, persecuted brother from his brothers, but this time in a neighborhood in the Cairo neighborhood of Sharabia. He is Radwan al-Prince, and like all the series of Muhammad Ramadan, he is a good young man who is well-known for his goodness. The third of the series, as was customary in the series of Mohamed Ramadan.
Instead of punishing the Radwan brothers that the father had planned, the brothers try to kill him with his family, they fail to kill him but they succeed in killing his wife and older son, and they try to kill him again, then they seek to imprison him, and they succeed in their endeavors, and the tragedies and injustices continue.
In the midst of the tragedy concert presented by Mohamed Sami in writing and directed with the usual mixture of sad violin and tears of actors in the scene, he failed to provide a coherent plot to the events of the series, and he was unable to provide logical justifications for many of his developments; What is the justification or benefit of the brothers leaving their niece Radwan the child in the street after they achieved their purpose from it, other than cruelty free or angering the audience, who interacted with the scene through social networks?
Solitaire for no reason
Is there a real reason for the repeated sorrows in each episode, and drawing new tragic lines that arouse the sympathy of the audience? Was the character "Umm Ola" (Safaa Al-Toukhi) really compelled to work as a housemaid in the home, to cry out of sorrow as she was? Umm Ola is a woman who retired after holding the position of director of the Real Estate Registration Authority, and gets three monthly financial incomes: a monthly pension due for her years of work, a monthly pension due to her after the death of her husband, and the salary of her daughter who works in a hotel with a "7-star" rating, and she lives in Owned apartment or at least low rent.
In these circumstances, Umm Ola and her daughter represent a hidden middle-class family, but the series treated her as one of the poorest class forced to serve in the home to improve her income, which will be helped by Radwan Al-Prince from inside his prison. From his prison, Radwan al-Prince sends a huge sum of money in favor of "Umm Ola", which is a salvage for her from what she hates.
Illogical events taken by the creators to show "Ramadan" as the ideal hero, and possibly exceeding the ideal level; The first is to provide assistance to his daughter who lives with her grandfather and her grandmother, and he will not see her for five years, and not for the family of the girl he loves.
In addition to legal and medical gaps, the director did not succeed in blocking or dealing with it despite the ease of treatment, only by resorting to medical and legal specialists, and the simplest procedural error in arresting Radwan Al-Prince outside his residence, without ambiguity and without inspection, based on the testimony of witnesses accusing him personally of being involved in the killing His wife and son and try to kill him.
Life collar representation
Despite the "Prince" scenario errors and dramatic gaps, it is possible to overlook the directing mistakes of Muhammad Sami in exchange for directing the actors, so the performance of the actors came to balance the chain with the viewers; Ahmed Zahir faces anger and anger from viewers after he embodies complete evil in the role of Fathi, Radwan's older brother, and the brains behind his injustice.
Rogina also embodied the role of a drug dealer with a cruel heart, prestige, and a strong personality, with a skill that she placed alongside Ahmed Zahir on the list of angered by the public. The same list includes the camel that embodied an unpleasant personality with a black heart, tied up and jealous for all around it, with hatred and stupid looks that ensured that it turned into a satirical or "meme" (circulated) on social networks.
On the other side, many actors fell into the trap of overrated performances, in unjustified crying and screaming scenes, including Salwa Othman and Donia Abdel Aziz, and Ahmed Zahir did not escape from this trap either.
While the action hero Mohamed Ramadan did not show any amount of difference from his performance in his previous works, perhaps because he still presents the same character with the same features and the same impressions, but with different names, perhaps the only difference this year is that he did not embody the role of the father as he used in his previous works.
Radwan Al-Prince will surely be able to take revenge on his brothers and achieve justice, and maybe a happy ending, like the previous series, will end, as the series does not offer anything new about the previous works of Mohamed Ramadan, but he achieved his success by habit, and by virtue of the fact that Ramadan Ramadan is a “star of the net” is the content of success, but The series confirms that the tragedy is still capable of attracting the audience, even if it is unjustified and riddled with gaps and errors.
