Honeymoonish has officially landed on Netflix and has presented itself as a classic romantic comedy you can’t help but watch in one go! While the streaming platform has several features of pause, 1.5x speed, fast forward, and more, you will find yourself using none of them for Honeymoonish. This latest rom-com, directed by Elie Semaan, and written by Eiad Saleh is truly a treat for all fans of the genre.

In this review, we will talk more about the premise of Honeymoonish, in addition to what worked and what possibly did not work for this Kuwaiti movie, which will help you decide whether or not it deserves a spot on your watchlist, so make sure you stick around until the very end!

Noor and Hamad’s Love Story is One for the Books!

Honeymoonish, Netflix’s latest Kuwaiti movie revolves around two main characters who couldn’t be more different from each other – Noor and Hamad. These characters are played by the fabulous Nour Al Ghandour and Mahmoud Boushahri, who have brought their sparking chemistry to the streaming platform and for the viewers to enjoy.

Honeymoonish, as the title suggests revolves around Noor and Hamad’s honeymoon, however, this might be one of the more unique honeymoon movies you might have seen so far.

Noor and Hamad are complete opposites but both need to be married soon and for their own reasons. After being up by their friends, the couple is hitched and away for their honeymoon, despite the obvious lack of chemistry and love to begin with.

While Noor and Hamad’s marriage started with endless and awkward lies, the slow and steady build-up of their relationship will remind you of the rom-coms that were released in the late 90s and early 2000s, the perfect era when the genre flourished like none other.

Several elements of Honeymoonish will keep you glued to the screen, but the most lovable part of the story is its characters. The premise of this Kuwaiti movie might not be too unique when it comes to Hollywood, but despite that, the movie has created a different mood and quality for itself.

There’s plenty to look forward to when it comes to Honeymoonish, but we particularly recommend looking forward to the cute yet funny fights between Noor and Hamad with a sliver of innocent love between them.
