When it comes to Ramadan mosalsalat, we tend to be extremely opinionated. After all, there are so many, it’s impossible to watch more than a handful. We opt for the best of the best. We rounded up a list of the series we think are the best. Let us know if you agree, disagree, or have something we should add to our list!
Glitz, glamour, drama and mystery—
this crime series has it all! Grand Hotel is directed by Mohamed Shaker Khodeir, written by Tamer Habib, and stars Amina Khalil, Amr Youssef, Anoushka, Mohamed Mamdouh, Dina El-Sherbiny, Amir Salaheldeen, Sherine, Mai El-Gheity, and Ragaa El-Geddawy.
Grand Hotel is one of the biggest projects Amina has worked on, as she said to Enigma magazine before Ramadan starts. She was excited & anxious about it and now we know why; Grand Hotel is a new beginning for everyone of this incredible cast! A world class thriller, a suspenseful sensational story along with a huge magnificent production. Amina Khalil is an amazing and talented actress who’s able to portray many different characters & who can mold herself into different roles. She’s pure perfection.

Al Qaysar (The Ceasar)
When did Youssef El Sherif ever star anything we didn’t like? This action-filled, dramatic thriller is directed by Ahmed Nader Galal and written by Mohamed Nayer. Aside from Youssef, it stars Khaled Zaky, Ahmed Halawa, Yasser Ali Maher, and Reham Abdelghafour.

Nelly and Sherihan
And finally, a lighter option. In the midst of a sea of drama, it’s nice to watch at least one comedy. Nelly and Sherihan is directed by Ahmed El-Gendy and written by Moustafa Sakr and Karim Youssef. We started watching it because it features our favorite celebrity sisters, Donia and Amy Samir Ghanem. The cast also includes Bayoumi Fouad, Mostafa Khater, Salwa Khattabm and Mohamed Sallam. Nelly (Donia Samir) has a life mission of searching for her cousin Sherihan (Emy) due to the will of her late father. Through the search she is involved in many funny and freaky situations.
