‘Marry Me Again_’ Netflix Film Overview – A Cheesy Comedy

“Marry Me Once more?” (initially titled Al-Baadh La Yathhab Lil Maathoun Marratain) is an Egyptian comedy directed by Ahmed El Gendy and written by Youssef Emad and Ayman Wattar. It has a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes.

This movie tackles a premise that we have seen earlier than in Hindi movies comparable to Pyaar ka Punchnama or No Entry. The topic of the movie revolves round relationships between romantic companions and whether or not the 2 can ever truly be pleased collectively. Marry Me Once more’s premise revolves across the authorities’s determination to digitize marriage certificates, which annuls weddings if the certificates aren’t submitted, resulting in the query of whether or not folks would submit the certificates to marry their companion once more.

The movie begins with a comedic information heist of types whereby our principal protagonist, Khaled (Karim Abdel Aziz), a sensationalist reporter (no less than that’s what he seems to be) goes underground as a buyer of a drug kingpin and performs a drug bust. The whole scene is crammed to the brim with quips and jokes that one has come to count on from the style. When the drug kingpin asks Khaled why he’s in jail, he proclaims that he went in for homicide. When questioned about who he killed, Khaled takes a have a look at the TV, which reveals the well-known footballer from Egypt, Mohammad Salah, and therefore he mentions an identical title. This scene particularly jogged my memory of a really well-known scene from Sasha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator.

The movie may be very by-product of earlier comedies within the style. Despite the fact that it comes from Egypt, the movie has a really comparable tone to Bollywood movies. The primary story focuses on Khaled and his spouse, Soraya. Khaled is an extremely profitable reporter, whereas Soraya is a sort of marriage counselor who additionally runs a radio present. The 2 are exhausted with one another to the purpose that in a single scene, they get “Comfortable Anniversary” messages from different folks. As a substitute of getting irritated about how neither of them remembered, they throw a superficial get together to rejoice it immediately. On the get together, the 2 invite a just lately divorced couple by mistake. Once they notice that the divorced couple is sort of happy and proud of their divorce, they start questioning if they need to get one too. Khaled’s brother-in-law is a well-known divorce lawyer who is understood for being very sly and intelligent, and therefore Khaled approaches him to debate the state of affairs.

The movie gave me a really 90s, early 2000s Bollywood comedy vibe. with comparable tropes from these movies. Humorous and exaggerated characters whose behaviors contradict their statements result in problematic but comedic conditions. Regardless of being cheesy and overly exaggerated when it comes to the comedic bits, The movie nonetheless managed to make me smile at sure scenes. Particularly Khaled’s brother-in-law, who’s extraordinarily intelligent and enterprise minded. In a single scene he advises folks to keep away from homewreckers whereas encouraging a pair to get divorced on the telephone.

Total, It’s a very generic sort of story about how {couples} who’ve been collectively longer aren’t usually pleased. They’re always arguing, and the answer (no less than in keeping with Khaled’s brother-in-law) is divorce. It would not actually present something particular apart from what it units out to do. In the event you’re considering a more moderen movie that takes you again a number of a long time to humor from the Nineteen Nineties, This movie is likely to be proper up your alley.

Closing Rating – [4/10]
