Open Your Heart (Arabic: افتح قلبك‎, ’Iftaḥ Qalbak) is an Algerian psychosocial reality show hosted by Salima Souakri and broadcast starting November 24, 2016 on Echorouk TV.[1][2][3] It airs Thursdays at 9p.m. (AST). It is the local adaptation of the French series Y'a que la vérité qui compte.


A person asks the production to invite another person on the set to "make an important statement".[4]

The guest has no idea of the reason for his invitation, nor of the person who wishes to speak to him, before entering the set.[4]

At that moment, the two persons (the inviter and the guest) are separated by a "curtain" and can only see themselves through two television screens. This allows the guest to know the person who wanted to meet him.[4]

A discussion then starts between the two persons. The inviter exposes what he has to say, and this may concern a declaration of love, reunion of childhood friends, etc., and the guest answers to him.[4]

The guest, a few minutes later, decides whether or not he wants to meet in real life the person who invited him. If he refuses, the two people return without meeting; if he accepts, the curtain opens.[4]
