Storyline

A seemingly traditional journey of a young sheikh in a governmental mosque who moves from leading prayers to becoming a TV celebrity issuing "fatwas" that are accepted by millions who have become fans of his as a result of his courage and his attempts to deviate from the usual religious rhetoric in a society heavily influenced by fundamentalism. The TV spotlight only shows his eloquent yet sarcastic answers he gives to the callers in a preset scenario, while in the dark and cloudy space around him, bloody struggles for power are raging, struggles he had always tried to avoid. But as Hatem continues his rise, the more he finds temptations and the less he has chances of salvation. Sheikh Hatem finds himself caught in a complex network of conflict, between the partial loss of a son being treated abroad and a wife whose love has grown cold, and security institutions trying to control him and-using his vulnerabilities-exploiting him to serve their interests. Meanwhile, a sovereign entity ... Written by Sabbah Bro

Almost Perfect
25 May 2017 | by wkbag2007See all my reviews

This is one of best new movie I had ever seen, Omro Saad brilliant acting reflect his superb talent, he reminded me of the late Ahmed Zaki, story line is very true to reality, supporting cast, direction and sound track are perfectly coordinated to produce such master piece. The only negative point is the ending which is somewhat disappointing.
