  • Moamen's rating of the film Sabah

    well , good story and good film making .... but a very shallow film , the film tries to make it big and discuss big issues about muslims and women in western communities but sorrowfully , the film makers doesn't have the slightest or the basic facts of what they are discussing , the expression of a typical muslim family life and culture was very stereotypical and at some times rather funny than being correct .
