Ramadan 2020 TV shows have left many viewers disappointed. Many of our favorite actors are missing, the plots feel redundant, most actresses are expressionless, and the comedy mosalsalat are more cringey than funny. Yet, with all the bad drama, Mohamed Ramadan’s TV show has left many of us in awe.
It is true that inheritance chaos and family feuds are nothing new when it comes to mosalsalat, but it is something that families deal with on a daily basis. The relatable series follows the story of Radwan, played by Mohamed Ramadan, who has 6 step-siblings.
After his father’s death, he finds himself the sole inheritor of his father’s fortune as a punishment to his cruel and ungrateful children. The step-siblings soon start planning the perfect murder to get rid of Radwan but their mother, played by Salwa Otham, ends up hearing them.
Salwa Othman has left viewers in tears last night after her incredible scene where she faces her children. The emotions were raw; the agony, disappointment, mommy shame, and confusion. Imagine being a mother who just realized that all of her kids are involved in an attempted murder? Will you put them all in jail? Can a mother hate her cruel children? We can’t wait to see what Salwa Othman has up her sleeves for her kids.
Soon after the episode aired, Salwa Othman became Twitter #2 trend in Egypt. I believe that mothers, in particular, have been touched by that heartbreaking scene as it depicts the ultimate motherly struggle. Can you turn a blind eye when your children make mistakes? Hats off to Salwa Othman!
