CAIRO - 5 March 2019: The much anticipated series “Zelzal” (Earthquake) starring Mohamed Ramadan will be broadcasted during Ramadan 2019.
Recently, the series’ writer Ahmed Kamal has finalized the script of the series, starring super star Mohamed Ramadan and Hala Shiha.
Shiha is returning back to acting after a long hiatus of 12 years. Her last appearance was with star Amer Mounib in 2006 in “Kamel el-Awsaf” (The perfect one) film.
In "Zelzal", Ramadan is set to perform the role of both the father and son, an experience he previously succeeded in, in the series “Nesr el-Saed” (Eagle of Upper Egypt), which gained great success in Ramadan 2018.
The events of the series take place in 1992 when a devastating earthquake struck Egypt. A man buys a house in installments and the last installment is due; the owner of the house demands that the house be registered in his name and his ownership is renounced.
The seller decides to wait and prolongs the process until the devastating earthquake strikes. The buyer dies and the house collapses post the destructive force of the earthquake.
The seller then refuses to hand over the piece of land on which the house was built to the heirs of the deceased, creating a clash between him and the son of the deceased.
Despite the fact that there is a love story between the daughter of the seller and the son of the deceased, the girl's father stands between them.
The series is directed by Yasser Samy and written by Abdul Rahim Kamal. “Zelzal” is starring Maged el-Masry, Ahmed Seyam, Nesrine Amin, and Yusuf Osman, among others.
