5 Egyptian Movies That Are Bomb But Kinda Underrated

Farah Makhlouf

Movies are very subjective; you can think it’s the greatest movie of all time but someone else might think they’ve seen better.

We went on a deep dive and asked a few average Egyptian citizens which movies do they find pretty good but got swept under the carpet and forgotten.

Here are 5 amazing Egyptian movies that were somewhat underrated… and deserve a second watch

5. Fe Mahatet Masr

The movie stars Karim Abdelaziz and Menna Shalaby. It’s about a young girl who doesn’t want to go home to her family without her partner but after her original partner ghosts her, she brings a man she found at the train station (Karim).

4. El Awela Fel Gharam

Also starring Menna Shalaby, she co-stars with the infamous Hany Salama in this movie. The wealthy and spoilt rich man is being taught a lesson by his uncle who alerts police of his whereabouts after a warrant has been issued for his arrest. His employee (Menna) helps him by finding him shelter in a very peculiar part of town.

3. Ezaet Hob

The movie stars Menna Shalaby and Sherif Salama. It revolves around 2 people,  who met through mutual friends and put on a facade to impress the other.

2. Kheyana Mashroua

A thriller starring Hany Salama, Mai Ezz El-Din and Somaya El Khashab. The movie revolves around a paranoid husband who kills his wife because she was ‘allegedly’ cheating on him with his brother. Was it a planned murder conducted by his friend Somaya or was it real?

It’s one brilliant film with a HUGE twist!

1. El Deif

One of the more laid-back movies but is hard to keep up with, starring Ahmed Malek, Jamila Awad and Khaled El Sawi. The movie is about a young girl who brings home her partner to meet her parents. Off the bat, they talk about politics and religion (a big no-no) and red flags just fire the room. Turns out the young man is an extremist but her father is a philosopher and a liberal.

If you’ll watch this one, stay focused the entire time!
