Movie Info

Finding Fatimah is a tale of one man's struggle to find love against the odds. All young Muslim Shahid (Danny Ashok) wants is to find a life partner but, after five years of trying, he is still struggling to find 'The One'. The aspiring stand-up comedian is about to hit 30, and his printer business is grinding to a halt, but there's something else that is rendering him well and truly UN-dateable... he's divorced. And now his 'divorced tag' is all people see. Using an online match-making site, Shahid sees no option but to select 'never married' on his profile, and when he falls for the bold and beautiful Dr Fatimah (Asmara Gabrielle), he must decide when and how to break the news. Funny and heart-warming, Finding Fatimah is a hilarious look at the modern British Muslim dating scene. It releases nationwide in UK cinemas from April 21.


Critic Reviews for Finding Fatimah

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

The cast are lumbered with a bafflingly lame and leaden script and plodding direction that wouldn't pass muster for TV in a thousand years.

Feelgood, but a little flimsy.

There's lots to like in this mostly sweet British Muslim rom-com. Pity, then, that it tries too hard, instead of trusting its characters, and sabotages itself.

There are some funny scenes, including a blind date in a café with the brother of a veiled woman who is not allowed to speak for herself, but the comedy often falls flat in a simplistic script.

While refreshing to see the British Muslim community represented in everyday life, ultimately a comedic love story with low-wattage romance and few chuckles has limited appeal.

Apr 20, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Finding Fatimah might discourage judging people based on their flaws and life choices, but that only makes the decision to populate it with unpleasantly exaggerated characters rankle all the more.
