After the court and the Hakka insisted on a lack of jurisdiction .. Social networking sites evaluate the outcome of Ramadan drama – Moroccan depth

Criticism of drama series on social media and in the media is nearing the end of its censorship work, as Ramadan series is about to say goodbye to the small screen audience.

And the rage of the virtual world’s audience did not stop Arab television from continuing to present episodes of the Ramadan drama projects they had acquired, but rather coincided with the end of some of them in Morocco, with the High Authority for Audio-Visual Communication (HACA) breaking its silence to slap the “Facebook people” and civil society activists and disappoint them after a slap Judiciary, both of which pay for a lack of jurisdiction!

Protection of lack of jurisdiction in Morocco

Some of the Ramadan productions shown on public channels in Morocco have provoked widespread controversy on social media, especially the series “Fatah Al-Andalus” and the series “Le Maktoob”, which reached the point of asking that the first series to be discontinued to broadcast. in Parliament, before the Judiciary, and before the Supreme Council for Audiovisual Communication.

However, the three institutions have disappointed Moroccan critics of these films and opponents of their ongoing performance.

On Friday, April 22, the Rabat Court of Appeal issued its ruling that it has no jurisdiction in the case of the broadcast of the series “Fatah Al-Andalus”, which tells the story of leader Tariq bin Ziyad, after a Moroccan citizen has filed a lawsuit. against the National Radio and Television Company, to stop broadcasting it on television because it contains historical inaccuracies affecting Moroccans.

The series sparked huge controversy among Moroccans, after its first episode was shown on Channel One, as some considered it to contain “historical inaccuracies about the origin and personality of leader Tariq bin Ziyad.” Mohamed Almou, a lawyer with the Rabat Authority, said in his urgent article to the court that “the judiciary is the body entrusted with the attainment of justice, the protection of society, the establishment of the rules of security and stability in society and the preservation of its identity. “

Following the clap of the court comes the clap of the Supreme Authority for Audiovisual Communication (Hakka), whose council has announced its position on the Ramadan programs and productions presented by Channel One and Channel Two during the current month of Ramadan, after making a number of complaints about some fictional works such as series, sitcoms and comic capsules.

And the Hakka said in a statement, of which Al-Amq had received a copy, that the government’s request to implement guardianship and censorship over the program choices of radio and television channels, whether to prevent, withdraw or dictate , is contrary to its institutional mandate, as an independent institution for legalization, to ensure and protect respect for freedom of audio-visual communication and freedom of expression. The statement emphasized that “the legislature guarantees that public and private radio stations and television channels broadcast their programs freely, whether these programs are internal production, co-production with foreign companies, or obtained as works ready for broadcast; However, they remain subject to specific legal principles relating to established democratic ideals and human rights, such as the duty not to violate human dignity, respect for the principle of the presumption of innocence, non-incitement to racism, hatred or violence, and non- discrimination or humiliation of women.

Only a third of the series

According to Al Jazeera Net, Ramadan is considered a busy drama season this year. The number of his series has exceeded more than 30 Arabic dramas. The works about which the audience gathered, and the news of which were most spread throughout the month of Ramadan. , does not exceed ten.

The series “The Great 6

The comedy series “Al Kabeer 6” surprised even those who waited and bet on it, as the series distinguished Donna from the rest of the other comedies by writing well and cleverly, and with many “comics” and “trends”. identify even those that appear during the current Ramadan works.

In addition, the series relied on the collective championship, which included stars from the old parts, such as Bayoumi Fouad and Mohamed Salam, and new faces with remarkable talent such as Rahma Ahmed, Hatem Saleh and Mustafa Gharib, who addressed some contemporary issues in ‘ a funny and innovative way.

Shocking series

The Syrian series “Kasr Adham” with its daring and shocking content was one of the most watched works of art in Ramadan this year as it reflects the security and military reality in Syria and what is happening in the face of the great corruption system. .

There is also the Golf series “From Al Haram Street to”, which received the highest number of viewers on “MBC”, and its hashtag views on “Tik Tok” exceeded one billion views.

According to the heroine of the work, Kuwaiti artist Hoda Hussein, the success of the series is due to the many controversies it causes, and the difference in its social content from the prevailing Arabic works, in addition to the complex plot and interesting method of presentation, which called on Lebanese producer Jamal Sinan to praise the work and bless its production.

The most controversial

The most controversial series, arguably, is “Faten Amal Harbi,” presented by Nelly Karim this year with the “Justice Group” company, during which she discusses crucial issues related to divorced women in Egypt and their rights in terms of maintenance, supervision, educational mandate, and others.

Technically the best

Some may think that the most viewed works are necessarily the same as the best artistic or dramatic, but it has nothing to do with it, as the standards of judgment and artistic evaluations have other critical references.

The series “Ghamm Island”

On top of the Ramadan drama, the best technical, is the series “Ghamm Island”, which the audience and critics like Tariq Al-Shennawi and Rami Al-Metwally, as well as the writer Muhammad Jalal Abdel-Qawi agreed on. , the producer of “Money and Children”, “Hazrat Al-Muthham Abi”, “Souk Al-Asr” and “Hala”. And the Derwish “and” The Night and Its End “.

The work is like a dramatic epic, combining philosophy and Sufism, and relied on a collective championship that doubled the success of the work due to the brilliance of all its elements from the writer, director and actors whose audience this year was surprised with their extensive roles, starting with Ahmed Amin and Tariq Lotfi by Fathi Abdel Wahab and Riyadh Al-Khouli, all the way to Mai Ezz El-Din and Abdel-Aziz Makhion. Of course, we can not forget the filming cadres that caught the eye and aroused admiration on the communication platforms, even those who did not follow the series in the first place.

The series “The Soul Rising”

Although the series “Baloo ‘al-Rouh” was only shown in the second half of Ramadan, and the number of episodes will not exceed 15, in addition to the fact that it was seriously attacked immediately after its “propaganda poster” was released and its producers was accused of insulting Islam and Muslims and then demanded a boycott of it. By showing its first episodes, it first became the most watched series, and then quickly joined the best.

The work is a homogeneous and integrated affair, directed by a leading and well-chosen and well-managed team by its director, Kamel Abu Zekry, and an excellent representation of the heroes led by Menna Shalaby, Ahmed Al-Saadani and Muhammad Hatem, and a highly exciting and intense rising dramatic narrative, and above all a soundtrack that complements the situation and increases the intensity of excitement and suspense From the first moment to the last in each episode.

The journey “disappointed”

Without a doubt, the series “Al Mishwar” sits on the throne of the Ramadan series that failed its waiters, a work that bears the stamp of a director as great as Muhammad Yassin, of whom we are only accustomed to strong and exceptional drama, and a writer like Muhammad Farid with a technical staff led by Muhammad Ramadan and Dina El Sherbini, who all raised hopes The audience and they bet on the series, even those who did not like Mohamed Ramadan’s previous series not, decided to give him a chance, believing that the director is capable of enforcing his control and strengthening his grip on all elements.

Despite the beauty of the picture, the subtlety of the soundtrack and the good acting of the heroes at the beginning, the rhythm of the very slow events quickly dropped and worked into the abyss of boredom, alienating the audience one by one. . Let’s find the work became under the supervision of Muhammad Yassin and Muhammad Farid and not entrusted to them in the first place.

Series that no one paid attention to

A busy drama season, the number of his series exceeded more than 30 dramatic works, but the series about which the audience gathered, and the news was most spread through the month of Ramadan, did not exceed ten, while the works of medium quality, although they have received some views and evaluations between positive and negative are less than The previous issue, such as the series “Al-Maddah” starring Hamada Hilal, and the series “Tawbah” by Omar Saad, which have positive ratings and averages obtained views. It surpasses the number of series that no one has paid attention to, and many do not even intend to give them a chance to watch Ramadan.

For examples, but not limited to, we will find series:

“Ali Work” by Fifi Abdo and Sherine Reda, “Pablo” by Hassan El-Raddad and Arwa Gouda, “Rania and Sakina” by Ruby and Mai Omar, “The Return of the Prodigal Father” by Bayoumi Fouad, “A Perversion” by Rogina, “A Second World” by Laila Elwi, “The Secret” by Hussein Fahmy “Another World” by Rania Youssef, “The Colloquial Point” by Aiten Amer, “House of Struggle” by Wafa Amer, “Make It Amer” by Nourhan, “Auction of Evil” by Kamal Abu Raya.
