Now you can see non-English news...

The series about Nasreen is formulaic, but the heroine is simply wonderful and funny - voila! culture


The successful singer and her partner sit down in front of the camera in the new docu-reality "Nasrin Agada", which feels too artificial. What nevertheless makes it a fun series to watch is Nasreen herself

Because you came from reality and you will return to reality.

This is the life cycle of many of our entertainment stars in 2023, certainly those who burst into consciousness after the 2000s.

Even those who did not start their journey in reality will meet him at some point during their career, whether it is on the judge's chair in some competition, in the position of a contestant in an attempt to make a comeback or as in the case of "Nasrin Agada" which became popular - also in a reality docu documenting their lives.

Nasrin Kadri, one of the most successful singers in Israeli music in recent years, needs no introduction.

Even if you didn't see her in "Eyal Golan is calling you", the reality show in which she broke out, or in "The Voice" where she served as a mentor, you must have heard her songs on the radio or on the hot hits playlist, what's more, her personal life frequently fills the gossip sites.

And exactly on the seam between gossip and art - with excess weight for gossip of course - "Nasrin Agada" begins.

The reality docu about Nasreen airs at the same time as a reality docu about another diva, Dana International, whose "Dana Kama" is broadcast on the same days Bis.

Although it is possible to find quite a few parallels between the two (they belong to minority populations, are loved by the gay community and have a history of scandals, among other things), it is difficult to think of two more different series.

While "Dana Kama" goes against the rules of the genre and provides a constant sense of chaos, "Nasrin Agada" follows the familiar formula: Nasrin speaks to the camera (when she is sitting on a royal chair, of course), as does her partner Rom Shamir, who receives almost the same amount of screen time and is portrayed As a fascinating character in his own right.

At the center of each chapter there is one dramatic event that will usually reach a resolution by the end and so on.

There is a woman larger than life: the series about Dana International is chaotic, funny and unpredictable

Full of humor and without papers.

It is clear to everyone that the willingness to introduce cameras into the lives of celebrities almost always comes from a desire to promote something, and indeed Nasreen - who gave birth to her eldest son a few months ago - is working on a large number of projects these days.

The problem is that in too many moments you feel the business here.

This is especially noticeable in the confessions in front of the camera in which Nasreen makes sure to be very politically correct and say what is "true".

Let's be clear: no one expects Nasreen to participate in a docu-reality show to make a dream come true - after all, who really wants a camera crew that sticks to him all day long - but it would be nicer if we didn't feel the "advertising thing" from every scene.

What makes "Nasrin Agada" a series that is fun to watch is mainly Nasrin herself.

The singer with one of the most beautiful voices we've ever known reveals herself here as a woman full of humor, also self-humor, devoid of diva-like papers, very opinionated and yes, sometimes also exposed.

The elephant in the room is of course her relationship with Rom, which brings to the screen one of the biggest conflicts in our society: a relationship between a guy from a Jewish home and a girl from an Arab Muslim home (Nasreen converted but her family did not).

Even after removing all the dramas created by the production, this relationship, the difficulties that are piled on it from all sides, there is a desire to see this young couple overcome everything to show that there is hope - not only for them, but for all of us.

"Nasrin Agada" is broadcast from Sunday to Tuesday at 19:35 on HOT Entertainment.
