Sequel to UAE’s biggest homegrown movie set for release


Hajwala 2: The Mystery Mission, the sequel to the UAE’s biggest million-dollar box office hit Hajwala, is currently completing post production at twofour54 having been filmed solely in the UAE.



The action comedy was shot in several locations in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain and is the latest Arabic production to work with twofour54.

Hajwala 2: The Mystery Mission revolves around the story of a band of outlaw car drifters. It is directed by Ibrahim bin Mohamed and Hasan Aljabri.

The cast includes Captain Abdallah Youssef, the Saudi drift champion,

Kshouna, a top female automotive sportsperson, Miral Niazi, an Iraqi actress, Hussein Al Hosani, a young comedian and Emirati actor, Omar Al Hashmi, the renowned drifter, and Abdo Feghali, a famous Lebanese drifter.

Maryam Eid AlMheiri, CEO of Media Zone Authority – Abu Dhabi and twofour54, said:

“The volume of content created in the Arab world is still very small compared to the size of the population and the demand, so it is critical that we address this as an industry.

“Projects such as Hajwala are showcasing the incredible talent we have in Abu Dhabi and the unrivalled support we can offer in helping filmmakers realise their vision.

“I hope that the success of producer Ali Al Marzouqi and directors Ibrahim bin Mohamed and Hasan Aljabri and their team inspires many more young Emirati filmmakers to collaborate with twofour54 and bring their stories to the big screen.”

The producer of Hajwala 2, Ali Al Marzouqi, added: “The support twofour54 offers filmmakers is unmatched in the region and it is certainly the home of Emirati cinema. Having world-class post-production facilities on our doorstep, is an incredible advantage for filmmakers in this region.

Hajwala 2 is scheduled to hit the big screen on November 15, he said.

Abu Dhabi has seen a surge in interest as a location for Arabic productions in recent years.



twofour54 has also entered into strategic partnerships with a number of content creators from the region to produce Arabic content, including a three-year deal with O3 Productions that secured an additional 300 production days a year to Abu Dhabi.
