Just a couple of days ago, Ahmed Mourad posted the trailer of the long-awaited movie, Torab El Mas. For years, there have been many problems over the adaptation of Mourad’s novel into a movie, from the Ahmed Helmy playing Taha drama to the multiple delays of the movie screening, however, we can officially say that Torab El Mas is finally coming to life and we cannot be any more excited, wanna know why?
1. The Cast
As we mentioned above, the main character in Mourad’s story is Taha and it was set to be played by Ahmed Helmy. However, after years of delays, Asser Yassin landed the role. The movie also witnesses the presence of some of our favorite actors alongside Yassin, Maged El-Kedwany, Menna Shalabi, Ezzat El-Alayli, Mohamed Mamdouh, Eyad Nassar and Bayoumi Fouad! Now that’s a cast that can do something good!
2. The Story
Ahmed Mourad is a talented novelist and screenwriter. We’ve seen how good he is in Vertigo which has been made into a TV series later, El Feel El Azrak which has also been made into a film starring Karim Abd El Aziz. Ahmed Murad was also the screenwriter of El Asleyeen movie which was released in 2017.
For those who’ve been reading Mourad’s novels, we all know how good the story of Torab El Mas is! The boring life of Taha, the medical representative, that has been turned upside down into a life full of secrets, mysteries and murders. The novel had me at the edge of my seat the whole time and I’ve been waiting to watch that movie since then. I bet I’m not the only one!
3. Marwan Hamed
Do we even need to say anything more? We’ve already seen the outcome of the collaboration between Hamed and Mourad twice; El Feel El Azrak (2014) and El Asleyeen (2017). Marwan Hamed happens to be one of the best directors in Egypt and as expected, the teaser dropped earlier this week looks promising!
We just can’t wait any longer for Torab El Mas!
