CAIRO – 18 May 2018: After the airing of its first episode, the show “Kalabsh, Part II” (Handcuffs, Part II) achieved the highest number of views on YouTube compared to other Egyptian series, with about 1 million views of the first episode.
Following his great success last Ramadan, Amir Karara returns as brave police officer Selim El-Ansari, who is now promoted to supervisor of Aqrab Prison. His life turns upside down when his parents are killed and he is seriously wounded by the killer.
Co-starring alongside Karara are Rogina and Hala Fakher. The series is written by Baher Diwedar and directed by Peter Mimi.
The obvious artistic chemistry between Karara and Mimi will also extend to cinema, as they cooperated together in “Harb Karmooz” (Karmooz War), which is expected to have its premiere in Egyptian cinemas during the upcoming Eid el-Fitr holiday. The film takes place in the era of King Farouk, Egypt's last king. The story revolves around a police officer, Youssef el Masry (Amir Karara), who lives in the Karmooz district of Alexandria. Masry fights many battles and saves a girl from being raped in the movie.
“Harb Karmooz” stars famous English actor Scott Adkins, known as “Boyka”, in his first appearance in Egyptian cinema, alongside Karara, Mostafa Khater, Ghada Abdel Razek, Bayoumy Fouad, Fathy Abdelwahab and Rogina, among others. “Harb Karmooz” is written by Mohamed el Sobky.
