heart warming romantic comedy
1 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Omar Shareef is shy, honest, down to earth person trying to win the woman of his life love, Soad is searching for romantic hero who is experienced with woman and knows what makes them tick. Omar fails miserably to attract Soad attention...his uncle decides to help him to win Soad heart... he tells Omar to pretend he has an affair with famous actress so that he can convince Soad he is a man with history, at the same Omar started to spread rumour that Omar has romantic history. After the rumour was spread everyone assumed Omar shyness and modesty is just an act to hide his sinister history. All females started to flirt with Omar and to try to win his heart.

There are some true classic lines and moments in this movie...very funny. Omar and Yosif Wahbee are simply great in the light heart comedy.
