Rolla Karam, Interim Chief Content Officer, OSN said, “On the occasion of the 49th National Day of the UAE, it is a time to celebrate our country’s spirit and values. The overarching theme of this year’s National Day, Seeds of the Union, shows a message of hope and optimism while embracing our country’s rich legacy and traditions. To commemorate this occasion, we will be bringing our viewers a selection of films for the whole family to enjoy, giving them a taste of the Emirati humour and wit that is not to be missed.”
On Wednesday 2nd December, Rashid & Rajab will kick-start the National Day long-weekend family fun. Starring Marwan Abdullah and Shadi Alfons in a sudden twist of fate when an accident causes a wealthy Emirati executive, and a carefree Egyptian fast-food deliveryman to switch bodies. The unlikely pair gain a different perspective into each other's lives as they desperately look for a way to revert to their former selves.
Next up is Shabab Sheyab, also on Wednesday 2nd December, starring Samer Ismail, Fouad Ali, Laila Abdullah and Ayman Kandeel. The movie tells the story of four friends in their senior year at university leading boring lives, living together in a dorm and working their way to graduation only to find themselves wrapped up in an adventure. They follow their forgotten dreams on the streets of Dubai, in a journey of self-discovery, forgiveness and fun.
Wednesday 2nd December also sees Dhahy in Abu Dhabi starring Abdallah Al Jafali, Mawary Abdallah and Ahmed Saleh. A comedy movie about Dhahy, a good-natured goofy character who takes a road trip to Abu Dhabi in search of love and a job, finding himself in all kinds of trouble.
Celebrations continue the following day, Thursday 3rd December, with Awar Galb, a story about a character called Zaid and his quest for his inheritance. To receive the full $9 million, he must find a bride and get married as soon as possible. The comedy movie stars Abdullah Zaid, Marwah Rateb and Nisrine Toumi.
Finally, Dhahy in Thailand also airs on Thursday 3rd December, starring Ahmed Saleh. The comedy movie marks the second instalment of a pair of films featuring the goofy character Dhahy and his friends. This time around, Dhahy travels to Thailand with his uncle for medical check-ups, only to find the language barrier setting him up for failure and causing him problems.
