File- Asser Yassin and Nelly Karim.
CAIRO – 16 May 2020: Episode 22 of the high successful series ‘’Be 100 Wesh’’ ( With 100 Faces) housed a love scene between the two stars Nelly Karim and Asser Yassin that melted the audience heart.
Sokkar ( Nelly Karim ) asked Omar ( Asser Yassin) to tell her the reasons that pushed him to fall in love with her, he said he don’t know the reasons that drove him to fall in love with her but he only knows that he misses and care about her, also he don’t want to be apart from her. Sokkar said that she wants to cry after what he said.
What made this scene grab the audience attention is the credible and sincere performance of the two stars as well as the simplicity of this touchy dialogue which reflected in a an extremely romantic way the meaning of true love.
We saw a truly vulnerable moment of two lovers expressing their love to each other with their eyes more than their tongues.
100 Wesh or “La Casa de Bolaq’’ as viewers on social media have branded it, likening it to Le Casa de Papel, is the funniest offering this Ramadan.
Sokkar and Omar come from two different worlds but have a common goal: to be millionaires, as is clear from the theme song of the series which has become very popular.
Though the two swindlers each have their own ways of pulling off cons, they decide to come together and use their criminal skills to work on a number of jobs.
This is a very simple comedy that is free of any complications or sophisticated plot turns, and you don’t have to concentrate much on its tiny details to understand its sequence.
But what’s made the series so appealing from the very first episode is that it houses two huge and popular stars, each of them used to playing the leading role and who have stepped completely out of their comfort zones and are not even comedians!
Karim is famed for her tragic, social as well as romantic roles and Yassin’s forte is mystery and suspense, social, romantic and action roles.
Both took a big risk with Be 100 Wesh which has really paid off. With the producer and the director at the helm, the series has wowed both Egyptian and Arab audiences because of both Karim and Yassin’s sense of humor and entertaining spirit that just needed a chance like Be 100 Wesh to come out on screen.
With memorable lines like “Bye Sugar” shared endlessly on social media, the series, though light, is not shallow, a pitfall many comedies tend to fall into.
So far the episodes have had a number of well written and greatly executed drama lines. Karim’s is a little cliché— the girl who belongs to a poor social class and has a lot of responsibilities so she turns to swindling to solve her family’s financial problems—but Yassin’s one is new.
He looks rich but deep inside he suffers from a huge problem because of his father and becomes a conman to keep up appearances (his and his mother’s) among his acquaintances.
The relationship between Omar and his mother (veteran actress Salwa Mohamed Ali) is well written in the script and the strong chemistry between them is very clear on screen.
