Shown here is a 25" x 36" Egyptian poster designed by Anise to promote the 1993 111-minute Mohamed Khan color film Mister Karate starring Ahmed Zaki (1949-2005) as Salah based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Raouf Tawfik with cinematography by Kamal Abdel Aziz. Plot summary: After Salah gets his intermediate certificate he moves from his village to Cairo to work parking cars at the garage where his father used to work before he died. He meets Nadia [Nahla Salama] who works in a video shop next to the garage. She introduces him to the Karate films she is selling, and an innocent friendship develops between them. He also becomes friends with a Karate coach named Hassan, who gets him into advanced training at a sports club and gives him the nickname Mister Karate. Salah is injured in a traffic accident and comes out of the hospital lame. He leaves his job at the garage and goes to work parking cars at another garage. There he occasionally uses his karate skills against local ruffians and gets some favorable attention from a local tycoon; this represents a positive move from the life of a homeless person with no purpose to that of someone with slightly greater significance. However when he discovers bags of heroin in the trunk of the tycoon's car, he is beaten up by the tycoon's gang. Nadia discovers she cannot live without Salah and agrees to marry him despite his poverty; they go together to his village where they become farmers after all their dreams in the city have fallen through. In a March 2005 interview shortly before his death Ahmed Zaki said he regretted the title because it misrepresents the story in the film, which was really about the troubles of a simple man trying to survive in Cairo.
