Jordan’s Upcoming Crime-Thriller “Boomah” Is Set To Make Waves


You need to go to the cinema; it’s a basic human need. The popcorn, the oversized drinks, the large theater just waiting for the screen to come on—all contribute to the experience. Even the ads before the movie have a sort of tradition of their own. Early birds get good seats and settle comfortably in their chairs, while the ads provide a chance for those running late to catch the movie without missing anything.

Now, consider this:

“Boomah,” a raw and unfiltered crime thriller directed by the talented Zaid Abu Hamdan. Inspired by real-life characters, this film takes you on a gripping journey through the struggles of a notorious female gang member determined to change the landscape of her city.
