Heneidy’s Tiny Shape and Child's Trouble Making Makes him Dear to People’s Hearts
Mohamed Heneidy's intelligence is what protects him from dispute with Adel Emam, the powerful favorite of film audiences. Some would praise Mohamed Heneidy and put him on a par with Adel Emam, but Mohamed Heneidy, a short; intelligent man would quickly shut the door on that argument, insisting that Adel Emam is the teacher, according to Arab-celebs.com.
The biggest problem Mohamed Heneidy faced was when he had to apologize to his teacher Adel Emam, when asked to participate in a small role in film "Message to the Wali." The part was played later by Alaa Morsi.
Adel Emam was the one who chose Mohamed Heneidy, whilst Heneidy was the one who scored the box office hit with the film "Ismailia Rayeh Gay." This hit awarded him the status of a “favorite” who was a sure bet in the film series steeple chase.
Perhaps Adel Emam did not realize this, but what is clear is the polite apology of Mohamed Heneidy to Adel Emam, and that Mohamed Heneidy keeps in his room a picture of Adel Emam and himself together, signed with the words “I love you very much Heneidy.”
This was the lesson Heneidy learnt from his teacher, not to get involved in a conflict outside the artistic media. Heneidy in only one sentence in Adel Emam's film "The forgotten" 'A story and not an image', attracted attention, and in the film "Bekhit Wa Adila" part one, his role was expanded, he says. The last scene in the film was written by Adel Emam.
The age difference between Adel Emam and Mohamed Heneidy is 25 years; Adel was born in 1940, whilst Heneidy in 1965. Mohamed Heneidy’s physical appearance and baby face, makes him appear 10 years younger than his age on his ID photography. Mohamed Heneidy presents the hanky comedy style, liberal, and this is why his super star status was delayed in films prior to "Ismaileya Rayeh Gay." This is because when he performs with bigger stars, they would deny that he competed with them. In the film "Ismaileya Rayeh Gay", Mohamed Fouad is a bigger star who did not feel the need to diminish this actor, who stood beside him. Mohamed Fouad felt the success of the film was a mutual success. It was Mohamed Heneidy who took the biggest piece of the cake from this successful film. The film that followed, "Seidy fi al-Gamaa al-Amricia". proved that “the goose could go on laying gold eggs.”
People sympathize with Heneidy’s diminutive features and he has the ability to add a personal quality to his performance and dialogue. Ismail Yassin concentrated on the comical dimensions of a film more than on the film’s theme. For Heneidy, however, comedy and theme are equally important. Heneidy gets inside people’s heart with his tiny shape and face, and his childish trouble making. In contrast, Ismail Yassin’s ugliness made audiences feel they are better than the actor for whom, however, they felt sympathy. Heneidy knew that his tiny shape is his key to gaining the sympathy of his audience and is, above all, God's gift which opens human hearts to this free and unrestrained comedian – Albawaba.com
