7 Egyptian Films To Watch When You’re In The Mood For “Saff”




Every now and then, you find yourself sitting with your broke best friends, with absolutely no plans in mind and no cash to come up with one. You feel bored, you get frustrated and then you all start getting mad at each other. Well, just so you’d stop feeling so bad, I made a list of wildly entertaining Egyptian films that you can all watch together and be happy. All you literally need is Youtube and I promise it’ll be a great saff night that you won’t forget. So, yep! Blaze that one up and hit your nearest Drinkies because it’s gonna be a wild night!

       1. El Academia (2009):

A marvelous piece about a bunch of 40 year olds’ college experience. Brilliant performances that will most definitely blow you away. Lots of intriguing wardrobe choices. Weird ass social issues. Brilliant drama. Out of the world cinematography. Enticing script. Everything about El Academia will make you wish you’d gone to film school when you had the chance.

But seriously though, you will have a good laugh. Guaranteed.

And watch out for that certain Ola Ghanem scene because you will be rolling on the floor laughing, I swear! You’ll know it when it happens.

         2. Aysheen El Lahza (2010):

Now this is a picture I’ve watched more than three times and still have no fucking clue what it’s about. Remember “Essaf” though? The singer dude from “Star Maker Sama3na Sotak!”? He stars in this one and let me tell you, he is one hell of an actor. He’s the Jon Snow of Egyptian cinema, minus the talent for acting. But anyway, some producer at some point in life thought it was a good idea to make a film with him as the lead.

So, sit back and let your brain take in all the brilliance of Aysheen El Lahza.

3. Ahasees (2010):

Look me in the eye and tell me you didn’t watch this one as a teenager with raging hormones! Ahasees is the ultimate (not so ultimate) guide to sexual awakening. A big cast, film masroof 3aleih (check the screenshot above), haga tefarah…bas na2so Ola Ghanem to be honest, Oh wait! There she is! Tab Randa El Beheriy? Damn! She’s in it, too!

If you haven’t given that one a try in your teenage years, then, it’s definitely about time that you do!

4. EUC (2011):

Here, we have a “delightful” Egyptian replica of the American film Accepted (2006), starring actor Justin Long. The film stars Malak Qoura…and Karim Qassem…The film is about three dudes who decide to open a fake university together with no prior requirements for entry. Would’ve been an original idea if only the whole story wasn’t stolen… from another film. But, if there’s one cool thing about EUC, it’s the fact ennu hayhassen hasset el saff 3andak gamed.

Highly enjoyable 3 beers in.

5. Reklam (2012):

Aiwa fe3lan, this poster rings a bell because it’s stolen from the film Bridesmaids (2011). Reklam is a heartbreaking picture about the hardships that women of a certain social class have to endure. Madame Ghada shines in this one as she plays the role of a prostitute, and so does actress Rania Youssef. The film caused some controversy when it first came out back in 2012 because it was said that a lot of scenes essentially had to be deleted in order for it to be shown in local cinemas.

Thing is, you’d think that since Reklam deals with such a heavy issue, it’s not supposed to make you laugh. But then you see Ghada AbdelRazek on the screen over-performing and over-acting and you can’t keep your hands off your mouth.

6. 3al2et Mot (2009):

Mesh hassah enni mehtaga a2oul haga, GO WATCH IT NOW!

7. Elaqat Khasa (2006):

Now, last but not least! My absolute favorite! The masterpiece of all masterpieces! The cult classic! The marvelous: Elaqat Khasa! I just love me some Elaqat Khasa after a long day of work. This one is about three

lost dudes who get into relationships with “bad” women, shshshsh! The film follows the stories of these 3 hunks who keep fucking shit up over and over again. This film is so amusing, a lot of times the characters movements are exactly in sync. Look below:

I just truly admire the directing of this whole thing. It’s hilarious. Feeh shots that’ll make you die laughing!

Bonus: There’s a Amr Waked cameo and another Hanan Turk cameo in the film. Don’t ask.

A few honorable mentions:

El Harebataan (2013):

Share3 18 (2008):

El Balad Di Feeha Hokooma (2008):

    Now go watch them ALL!

The Hotel will feature a How to Summer Guide, dedicated Petit Plates menu offering Mediterranean inspired mini baguettes perfectly paired rosé spritzers and aperitifs, part of the brand’s signature Sparkling Programme. In addition, Le Méridien is bringing modern twist to classic games traditionally enjoyed outdoors during warm weather days such as the iconic backgammon, as well as, poolside chess and other timeless summer pastimes both to-go and as an oversized option, inviting guests to linger a little longer, with an exclusive warm weather soundtrack, curated by French Bossa Nova collective Nouvelle Vague.

FOR THE FIRST TIME, MARVEL’S LOGO OPENS TO THE UNIQUE ARAB TRAP BY EGYPT’S HOMEGROWN TALENT DJ KABOO ON THE LATEST EPISODE OF MOONKNIGHT, HITTING THE SERIES’ WORLDWIDE AUDIENCE WITH EGYPTIAN CLASSIC. The new show, directed by renowned Egyptian director and producer Mohammed Diab, showcases current Egyptian talent with one of the Middle East’s rising Egyptian DJs and music producers well as Dubai’s star disc jockey, DJ Kaboo being one of them. Already having his first track “Arab Trap Made in Egypt” featured in the premier episode of the series which sampled “Khosara” by Abdel Halim Hafez which was licensed by Mazzika group. His second track “Enta” which is the fourth track of his Arab Trap E.P. sampling “Batwanes Beek” by Warda being the new hit track that stole the show on the third episode of Moon Knight, with the track not only being used for both the intro and the credits of the episode but being added to Marvel’s official playlist, taking Egyptian music and Kaboo to a whole new level on the global stage!
A Dubai’s club regular scene since becoming the 2013, Pioneer’s DJ Middle East champion, he was driven by his passion of mixing-and-mastering old popular Arab tracks in hopes of introducing the culture to a global audience. He honed his music production talents to carve a new sub-genre of “Arab Trap” releasing the powerful “Arab Trap Made in Egypt” in 2018, followed up by his Arab Trap E.P. in 2020. This string of successes led to him being known as the “Arab Trap King”, earning his place among the scene’s elite.
The Arab Trap king was presented with the amazing chance to have his tracks featured in Marvel’s new series in late 2021. Following the unbelievable opportunity, he contacted his manager, Carousel’s CEO Daliah Galal to take it to the next level, where she helped seal the deal. Marvel ended up taking both tracks which sampled the popular classic tracks from the Arab world. Kaboo was enthusiastic with the new series’ potential of exposing the world to a fresh and revitalized take on classic Egyptian and Arab music with an injection of modern trap elements for a new and energetic audience.

Kaboo performed with prominent global artists such as Drake and Rihanna as well as Arab superstar Mohamed Ramadan, with him being the official DJ for Rihanna’s 2018 Fenty Dubai Launch Party and later on he became Mohamed Ramadan’s official DJ in 2021. Who he had notable performances with at the 2022 Middle East music festival. This recent collaboration with Marvel stands to elevate Kaboo’s efforts to explore and introduce to the world his unique “Arab Trap” style with him as one of the rising stars in the region’s music scene with this being his time to introduce the rich Middle Eastern flavor to the world!
