Critic Reviews for Ali's Wedding
Walker's debut mines rapid-fire laughs and bountiful heart from a story of romantic misadventure set in train by a young man desperate to live up to his father's expectations.
With Australia's current policies on immigration and Islamophobia on the rise in many Western countries, this unabashed presentation of a Muslim love story feels brave and necessary.
The somewhat predictable setup and conclusion allow for some nuanced takes through [star and co-writer Osamah] Sami's Muslim lens.
A meandering but warm, adorably revealing and often funny romantic comedy set in a slow-to-assimilate Australian Islamic community.
Audience Reviews for Ali's Wedding
'Ali's Wedding' is the most unique and heartfelt Australian film, I've seen all year. A domestic centered story about an Australian Muslim living such a comfortable urban lifestyle he himself is even thinking about revoking what his family or even his own customs may actually expect of him to a point the film's plotting takes so many drastic twists and turns you can't help but admire this film for what it really is, 'a personal life story'. This also touches upon how the Urban Australian Muslims should be presented, when their lives are no different to us local folk, but their traditions and cultural customs are fascinating. The real heart of the story however is Osamah Sami's main character whose such a relatable underdog he's created something great alongside director Jeffery Walker, an incredible Australian story, with enough wit and humour to combat it's cultural subject matter accustomed to the majority of the characters and premise. All in all, we have a charming heartfelt and hilarious film that's more than likely to be one of the most talked about local films of the year, highly recommended for all to see.
