As the streets are flooded with social butterflies this Eid, some of us introverts continue to sip on our warm milk tea, munch on kahk, and look for the next best thing to watch. Let us go on a trip back in time to Eid 2014 with a selection of movies that are already a decade old and a guide to your movie marathon this Eid.

Starring Ahmed Helmy, Soni’a Fi Misr was recognised as Helmy’s comeback to the big screen, and it indeed was! The social comedy has garnered vast recognition and took Egyptian cinemas by storm.

Directed by Ahmed El Gendy and starring the comedic trio Ahmed Fahmy, Hesham Maged, and Chico, El Harb El Alameya El Talta was a sci-fi comedy, inspired by the iconic Night At The Museum. The movie is still a hit at every movie night, and is definitely on our list for movies to revisit this Eid. 


El Feel El Azraq

While comedy dominated the big screen, thriller and drama enthusiasts were eagerly anticipating El Feel El Azraq. With a stellar cast of Karim Abdelaziz, Nelly Karim, and Khaled El Sawy, El Feel El Azraq became a modern classic with its exceptional graphics and exciting plot. 


Gawaza Mery

Gawaza Mery brought to the big screen a new favourite trio, with Yasmine AbdElAziz, Hassan Elradad, and Karim Mahmoud AbdElAziz. The trio made a perfect combination for a hilarious storyline. Discussing the complications of love triangles with a comedic twist, Gawaza Mery is considered to be a social comedy with a touching plot. While we laughed from the depths of our hearts, we also experienced heartbreak alongside each and every character.
