ساهر الليل 3

so i guess i wasnt supposed to write a review based on just the pilot of حلفت عمري :(
they killed the young actors too soon ..  huda hussein probably was very eager to jump in and do the role too early on if u ask me .. shes not fit to play the role yet .. it is more suited to a younger actress (atleast with someone who has no wrinkles) they shouldve stayed with the young girl and simply  make her look older.. just for a few more episodes .. huda in my opinion is pushing it (her acting i mean) by trying to "Act" young when its not fitting her at all! its awkward seeing her trying to be all jumpy and moving a lot! its not like her at all. but im sure once the story progress the role will end up being perfect for her ;)

my other show for now,  im sure most of you are watching  "saher allail 3". how can we not be soo excited to watch something that involves us all!! the dark horrible but yet priceless days. the time when we were all kids .. i was 8 .. and i remember my mother once said "it scared our childhood" and now i know exactly what she meant. it is a scar .. but i think everyone who lived those days wear them very proudly now. a scar, a reminder of how much we love this country even though we didnt know any better we just loved it .. we witnessed people cry ..bleed,  get prisoned and die just because they loved it. all of us did .. none of now adays political nonsense would be even the tiniest bit acceptable if Kuwaitis wore the same hearts they did back then in 1990 .. this show really did take me back to memories that will never ever be forgotten but are simply now more alive and vivid since im being reminded of them.

back to the show .. im in love with the actors! theyre all doing an outstanding job! cast perfectly picked! again very impressed with the camera motion.. nothing that would give u a headache or anything, just right and professional.  the details .. the details.. its all in the details! their cars, bags and costumes! which most of it is already back on  trend but with a modern twist!
finally, the love story has always been the main attraction of all saher allail seasons! we are a very romantic society i think :p we thrive on love mushy stories! the thing that really stood out and i think most people noticed this season is the "script". its very- very realistic. its ok for actors to all talk at the same time in a realistic manner! the camera doesnt have to show each face individually when they speak! lol thank God we finally reached that level of great modern filming! they no longer talk to each other with one giving the other his back so theyd be both facing the camera! LOL that always killed me! and lastly .. the two young brothers .. im very bad with names i never remember the names .. but are skinny cute and funny! i just love their bond and how theyre always together! so im pretty happy with the shows i picked ..

will give the rest another try might end up with three shows .. i think three would be a good number out of the gazillion being aired!

again hope everyone is well ;) tc and tqabal allah.

حلفت عمري

mubarak 3laikom alshahar inshallah.
im really looking forward to the peace, quality time and to not go out as much factor. to reflect on ones self, but most importantly spend more time with Allah is always the highlight of this month.
it will also traditionally include more tv time, at least in my case,  since i dont regularly watch tv. yesterday i skimmed through most of the promising tv shows.. and was glued to the screen the minute "حلفت عمري" aired!

 it starts in a very delicate manner, gently introduces you to a simple small Kuwaiti neighborhood in the 50s, it warms your heart up to fall in love with this sweet teenage cute couple on a rainy day. their innocence was something that our screen have missed for a very long time. my favorite moment was the scene where the boy drops off a dish for the girls mother, just so that they can see each other, she was stealing a peak at him all the way from the back. he could only take a few glances  (very quick split shy full of excitement seconds ) but meant the world to both of them!.. all of that while still trying to carry a fake but funny conversation with her mother! this scene was very short but was executed in a way that would stay with you for a while.. the feelings and butterflies were all very genuine. i couldnt help but smile the whole time. this show is "very good" when it comes to directing, shooting, filtering, acting, script, actors, costumes, makeup, story and location!!! even the motion of the camera was very steady and calm that made a perfect balance with their background music. im in love with its details! all their hard work and attention to details really did pay off! all the vintage things and furniture made it all look so relaxing and beautiful to the eye. it also compliments the story line and translates it in its own unique way.

i hope they would give the young couple more time on the show before they growup!  theyre soo adorable! im also looking forward to them growing up, since huda hussein is playing the role! shes a promising actress! all the best to her and the creators of this show :)

you can watch it on MBC Drama @ 3:00 pm and on Kuwait 1 @9:30 pm
wishing everyone a blessed month.
