Solange falls for the Prince heir to the throne of Mazuland after he takes her to the hospital following running her over with his car in the street. At first Solange thinks that he is an ordinary guy and verbally attacks him for knocking her down. She accuses him of attempted murder and then asks him in the hospital,

“Are you a drunk?”

This all changes when she finds out that he is a prince. Her behaviour changes; She is bowled over and wants his contact details to right her wrongs. The Prince does not seem enthused and in the meantime falls in love with his late father’s best friend’s daughter Kalisha. On the day that he is to propose to her he finds out that she is betrothed to another. He is heartbroken but soon makes it his mission to replace that love with another.

It appears that he is going to choose Solange to love. He sends her a gift and then invites her out on a date, only to see Bernice, who was accompanying Solange to meet the Prince, and become completely besotted with her. Solange is understandably upset and embarrassed at the interest he is showing her friend, but tries to keep a brave face. It is when he turns up at the house that they share, the next day on Bernice’s birthday with a brand new car wrapped in a ribbon that Solange completely falls apart and plans to win back the Prince by any means necessary.

*************SPOILERS*************

I thought the movie opened well. A car crash is a sure fire way to catch someone’s attention. It had heavy impact and had me gripped straight away. Yvonne gets better and better each time I see her. Loved her performance as the woman scorned. I really felt for her when the Prince dumped her. I could feel her devastation and desperation even more when just before the prince was about to marry Bernice she declares her undying love for him. It is here that we find out that she engineered the accident at the start of the movie in an attempt to lure him.

I’m loving the new guy John Dumelo. I haven’t come across him before, but he is a nice piece of eye candy and a natural actor. Yaaaaay! He badly reminds me of Yul Edochie in his expressions and mannerisms. Jackie really showed her chops when she was playing the spirit version of her self. She did really well. The spirit scenes were reminiscent of My Everlasting Love with Oge Okoye and Rukky Sanda.
_____________

WHY’s
Why now it has been decided to move on and to Bey’s sister Solange? What is up with that? Why leave out Matthew and Tina… may as well have the whole family involved

Why did Solange turn up to her date with the Prince wearing her Tiara and sash from her victory as Miss Legon Campus. Even if you were Miss World, how would you turn up to a date with your tiara and sash let alone you won one local uni beauty paegeant? Nonsense!

Why when the Prince came back with Solange’s laptop did they decide to do a close up of Yvonne’s hairy legs laying on the couch. Was that supposed to look sexy?

Why when Bernice’s eye got gouged out did they have her holding some fake googly eyes in her hands like they were popped out of her head? That was soooooo stooooooopid!!!

Why did Yvonne tell the hitman, “She’s my best friend I don’t want her dead. Why don’t you just make her blind and paralysed.” YEAH! Some friend you are!

Why the introduction of the girl Alicia that could see spirits? I thought she was meant to be Kalesha’s child but then she was too old. After the scene in the shop we don’t see her again, so what was the point of her?
_____________

Overall I really liked this movie. There was a good mix of intrigue, suspense and drama. There were subplots and they all came together nicely. The timeline was a little messed up with Akila marrying Alicia’s daughter. She looked at least twenty and they said only 11 years had passed, so tops she should have been only 13, but luckily this cock up doesn’t happen to until the end so its not too distressing. This movie teaches us that what goes around will surely come around. Solange forced Bernice,  her friend out of the beauty pageant that Bernice would have probably won by hiring thugs kidnap her sister. In return the Prince picked her friend instead of her as a bride, and even after killing her friend he still had no desire for her, thus karma was revisited upon her. One to watch I say!

Kelvin and Bankole were business partners but a fall out over money resulted in Bankole going to Kelvin’s home in the middle of the night and gunning down him, his wife, daughter and house help down in front of their home in cold blood. The bodies are found not long after the shooting by Kelvin’s brother Enyinnaya and his wife.

All is not lost and it is discovered that Kelvin’s 8 year old daughter Jessica is still alive. After hospital treatment she makes a full physical recovery, although haunted by the turn of events that night. It is suggested that a change of scene will do her good and so she is shipped off to an uncle in America where she remains until returning back for a visit 22 years later, however she has come back for a reason other than to see family.

*************SPOILERS*************

I started watching this movie on about 5 different occasions and actually turned it off every time. Why? The beginning is confusing. We see Kelvin and Bankole discussing business matters, but exactly what the issue is that made one go and assassinate the other’s whole family I couldn’t really get a grasp of. We then cut to a scene with Kelvin’s brother and this too was a bit confusing, in fact I even thought that the movie was a continuation of something else. In fact it may well be!

After rewinding a few times I finally “got it” and I am glad that I took the times to persevere through the first few scenes because the movie was worth watching despite the few flaws.

Enyinnaya played by Kofi was excellent in his role as the grieving brother, as was the actress that played his wife in the movie. After his brother dies we see a scene where he and his wife consoling each other. This scene is very touching and believable from the tears welling up in the eyes to the subtle built up to understated sobs. These two had great chemistry together and flowed naturally.
_____________

One thing that got me confused was why the film was supposedly set in Ghana (They kept mentioning Accra and Kumasi) but the characters names were either English or Nigerian. Why didn’t they just set it in Nigeria since everybody seemed to be Nigerian anway? When the police come to Enyinnaya’s house to investigate his brother’s murder, he is asked about his brother’s business partners. He mentions some in Dubai which prompts the officer to ask,

“No Nigerian partners?”

Why would the police ask about Nigeria partners? What would the relevance be? Or is this just an error?
_____________

One thing that I saw as a major flaw in he  film was where the policeman investigating the murder case comes and wants to talk to Jessica (which they were first of all calling Princess, in fact I thought that was her name until she came back as an adult) about her parents murders. The one who is the policeman is now calling himself a “psychologist.” Is this how multitasking happens in Naija? His form of therapy is to tell Princess to close her eyes, that he has a surprise for her, only to then pull a gun on her and tell her to open them. Which kin of NONSENSE be this? The policeman/ psychologist then analyses the situation,

“For a normal child this could be a piece of metal.”

Er Noooooooo it would be a freaking gun for a “normal” child even if they hadn’t come face to face with one like Jessica had. Most kids would know that it was a gun that is capable of killing. He continues with his useless nonsense psychological analysis,

“Suddenly it’s an object of fright.”

WHY THE HELL WOULDN’T IT BE??? GUNS KILL!!!

And there is even more nonsense,

“Except that child has been through a terrifying experience, like seeing her mummy and daddy lying dead before her.”

Hold up! So that would be mean a gun is an object of fright, unless you parents have been gunned down? Which would mean she would be happy to see a gun, but she wasn’t she jumped and was scared. In any case gunned down parents or not… a gun is an object for fright for anyone. Hmmm… These are meant to be profound words of wisdom from a PSYCHOLOGIST. It does not even make sense. Whoever wrote that crap needs to pay attention to detail and make sure their sentences tie up with one another and MAKE SENSE.

The PSYCHOLOGIST then gives his advice,

“This child needs special care maybe a change of environment would help.”

DUUHHH… Talk about stating the obvious! Who needs a psychologist to tell them a kid that just saw her parents gunned down in front of her needs special care? This whole scene was extremely insulting to the viewer and poorly thought out.
_____________

What is a toddler? I thought a toddler is between 12 months and 3 years at a push. After all isn’t a toddler called so because they are toddling (learning to walk) An 8 year old child is waaaay past toddler age. Throughout the movie the young pre-America Jessica of 8 years old is referred to as a toddler. People should learn the meanings of words before they start using them anyhow.

___________

Once you got into it the movie it was enjoyable. For that reason alone I would recommend it, however something funny was going on with the names, where the names in the credits weren’t necessarily the names in the film and the fact that Jessica/ Princess was referred to as a toddler. I have a feeling that perhaps the movie was filmed at different times, hence these discrepancies. The first part was somewhat predictable in that I knew the reason for putting Jessica and Tony together, however there was a nice twist at the end that I didn’t see coming that tied up all the other subplots in the movie.

Chief Sarpong is married with two sons and a daughter. At the very beginning we see him getting caught cheating with his secretary by his wife. The opening scene is dramatic and grabs your attentions. The credits are boldly interspersed while the Chiefs wife confronts him over his affair. This alongside the music used serves to build up tension and suspense.

We find out that not long after Chief is caught having the affair his wife dies. He then remarries only two months later. The rest of the film takes place 15 years after the opening scene. At this time he is living happily with his former secretary and has a young daughter with her. When his sons return home from abroad (From where I don’t know as one has a British accent and one American!) all hell breaks loose as they take out their anger on their stepmother and sister.

It is apparent that they are still resentful towards their father cheating on their mother and then disrespecting her by marrying so soon after her death. They go on a mission to drive their stepmother out of the house.

*************SPOILERS*************

We see the chief with his new wife and daughter and his sons from his previous marriage but his daughter from his previous marriage is nowhere to be seen. This is because when she found her mother dead she ran away to another city and happened to be taken in by a woman who raised her as her own. As we watch the film the full story begins to unfold. I’d like to see exactly what happened with that because it did not really make sense to me. Why did her neither her father nor her brothers ever bring her name up? Why didn’t her brother think about his sister when he meets a girl called Chantel, especially since they weren’t that young when she ran away? Unfortunately I only watched part 1 and 2 and it didn’t finish there so I’ll be on the lookout for part 3.

I would definitely recommend this movie. It flowed well and was funny in many parts. It was enjoyable to watch. The most comic moments are those when there is war within the family. At one point the step mum calls Maxwell a “baby elephant” Samuel Ruffy Quansah in particular was the funny guy in the movie. Just watching him washing the car getting crunk to Lil John “Snap Yo Fingas” was hilarious. There was another bit where he sees his half sister for the first time and turns to his equally dark skinned brother and exclaims “That’s not our sister… We black!”

My Rating – 79%

The film opens with a couple being attacked inside their home by armed robbers. Even when the man is at risk of being killed and has a gun to his head he still refuses to tell the robbers where the money is. Is money more important than your family’s life? Even when he hears one of the robbers telling another that the informant has given reliable information that there is 200,000 in the house the man is still resistant. Of course in the end the robbers get their hands on the loot and the man gets to keep his life.

In the aftermath of the robbery we see the robbers discussing what had transpired with one of the gang members busy raping a girl in the house when the others were trying to leave. We see opposing views on rape and sex. One school of thought believes the enjoyment in sex is the mutual enjoyment of the act, to please the girl and make her happy. On the other hand the rapist enjoys sex when he is conquering the girl. When questioned he said that the fear in the eyes turned him on more. Na wa o!

Elsewhere we are introduced to Carrine, played by Yvonne Nelson. She appears to be an ashewo. We see her getting out of a man’s car and cursing him out because he pays her 2000 Naira instead of 10000. Yvonne plays the role of the loud mouth street girl to a T. I am liking this character for her. It is a more complex one than the usual Princess Tyra/snobbish campus girl that I’ve seen her play. She slaps the guy for not paying her and then proceeds to argue with him in the street while her friend has been briefed beforehand to snatch his wallet. We then see her fight with the girl who snatched the wallet for withholding money.

The girl she is squatting with at university then throws her out of the room and she is forced to return home. This bit was a bit confusing because it seemed like Carinne had been on campus for a while pretending to her parents that she was a student, but then when she returns home her mother seems to be worried about not knowing where she was for only that weekend.

The next character we meet is Jackie Appiah’s. After watching her wooden and sub par performance in My Last Wedding I wasn’t too much looking forward to seeing her again so soon. Surprisingly she wasn’t bad. We meet Chika (or so she says her name is) when the armed robber gang lead by chief robber Murphy are about to carry out a robbery on a bus to Onitsha. Their informant has tipped them off that this heist is worth 4.5 million. When the time comes for the attack to be carried out Murphy is busy chatting to a girl he has met on the bus and the gang are PISSED, in fact more than pissed! As he is the leader the plan can not come to fruition without his say so. As he is toasting the girl he obviously does not want her to know he is an armed robber and so the journey is completed without the robbery taking place.

After a lengthy chasing period Murphy and the girl from the bus start a romantic relationship and it is beginning to affect Murphy’s relationship within the gang. They are beginning to feel his relationship with her is taking priority over “business” and on the other side of the coin he is having to tell her endless lies to cover up the true nature of his “job.”

*************SPOILERS*************

The story comes together and we find out the wayward Carrine is the sister to Murphy’s girlfriend. And she will feature in their relationship in a way that could never be imagined. The movie is a somewhat serious one splashed with high comedy moments (all involving Yvonne Nelson):

The scene where Carrine curses the man out on the street for not paying her is hilarious. She shouts him “You stupid boy… cheap boy” While walking around him glaring disapprovingly all the while knowing that her friend has just swiped his wallet.

There is a scene where Carrine is being intimate with a married man on the sofa in his house wearing his wife’s wrapper and the wife walks in. The wife chases her around the sofa screaming, “Show me what to do.” This is hilarious

Another scene is where the same married man turns up at her mother’s home and confronts her over stealing his card. She does not even deny it but then even goes on to tell the man that he must get his wife to write her a written letter of apology for embarrassing her at the house. All in front of her mother! She is shameless!

The plot is engaging and well paced. Every step of the way you wonder whether or not the girl from the bus will discover Murphy’s omissions about his life. There is also the question of whether or not Murphy’s gang will turn on him and whether or not Murphy will ever be able to get out of the criminal life he is accustomed to living. The film ends and you know there is a continuation, as much as I hate this 4-8 film part craze I will definitely be watching the rest.

My one annoyance about this film was the fact that the blurb on the back ruins the film watching experience because it gives the whole plot away (which is why I read the back cover after watching the film!) Of course this is a problem not exclusive to just this film, however this one went one step further and gave away the plot for the continuation because what I reading on the back of Part 2 had not even happened! Oh and another one, (so excuse me; two annoyances) when the credits rolled the first letter on each name was cut off. What is that about? Nevertheless it was a solidly good film and I would recommend it.

My Rating – 46%

Benny played by Emeka Ike is known as Gameboy by all his pals. This is because of the skilful way in which he breaks women’s hearts by enticing them, playing with their emotions and then dumping them once the game is over for him. In the first scene we see Benny being confronted by two girls who are both under the impression that they bear the girlfriend tag. We see each girl demand that he claim them and get rid of the other. He, however rejects the BOTH of them and then orders them out of his house. Immediately afterwards we see him spitting game to another chick on the phone. What will it take for Benny to realise the error of his ways?

The other main character in the film is Linda, played by Jackie Appiah. We see her get jilted by her fiancé just hours before her wedding. She runs into the road after him to beg him to rethink and gets knocked over by a car and ends up in hospital

Please if anyone has seen this film I am confused about something. I swear the doctor told her friends,

“She’s dead.”

The friend then gasps and he goes on to list her minor injuries. We then see her resting on the sofa at home with the friend by her side. I rewound it a few times and heard the same thing. Why on earth did he say “She’s dead.” When she clearly was not? Did I misunderstand what took place?

Of course these two separate storylines merge and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what happens next!

*************SPOILERS*************

Casting Emeka Ike in the “player” role was laughable. He doesn’t play the callous tough man role too well, seeming more concerned with rolling his eyes which makes him look hella fruity. This role called for someone with some SWAG and Emeka just does not cut it. I was looking at all these idiot chicks falling for his lame lines and non charismatic delivery and simply thought, “YEAH RIGHT!”

37 minutes into part two and I get a big shock. The lady who needs to be given the title “Most Horrible Nollywood Actress” makes an appearance. Now not only am I pissed at her for her big face polluting my screen I am also pissed at myself because I look on the cover and lo behold she is there, granted the picture is tiny but I really should have checked more carefully to prevent a shocker like this. It is MICHELLE IKEGULU in all her dreadful glory! The accent, the pronunciation of TH as F and S as TH, the over the top non convincing acting. It is just awful, awful past the point of funny. She is lisping, unbearable and irritating, she encapsulates it all.

She arrives to come and see her fiancée Benny who she plans to come and marry not knowing that she is simply a mugu to him. In one scene she even attempts to cry, loud shrieking over the top crying with NO TEARS and shaking as if she were laughing. Wow! Whoever is allowing this chick to assault our eyes and ears like this, I beg you rethink now.

Jackie Appiah was wooden and didn’t put any feeling into the character. There were a whole load of waka pass girls to that were pretty awful too. Comfort Ugheoke that played Linda’s best friend Tania was as good as she could be playing the sidekick and she was very pretty with the most flawless skin. If she could work on her charisma she would be a force to be reckoned with. Austin Okwudiri too did a good job as Emeka’s best friend Dave. In fact the film would have been much much better if the two sidekicks had been given lead roles.

The standout performance in the movie for me was the gateman played by Francis Odega. Every scene he was in held my attention and more often that not had me in fits of laughter. In one scene Benny’s mugu Linda cooks him a meal that sends him into violent spasms of diarreah. In describing what happened to Benny he starts singing P Square,

“Look at the way she do me, do me, do me…”

It was also touching the way that Benny and the gateman Talambo interacted with genuine concern and respect for each other. I thought that this was very nice as too often we see house help getting abused and treated disrespectfully as if they are not human.

Funny Quote

Benny (Emeka Ike) on Linda (Jackie Appiah) to his friend Dave.

“You should see this girl she is a combination of Halle Berry, Jennifer Jordy and Beyonce.”

I don’t know who Jenifer Jordy is but I sure as hell know there ain’t anyone I know that would describe Jackie as a cross between Halle and Beyonce. Granted I know the suggestion is that she is a beautiful woman just like them but they are both close to white and she is not. Some chocolate women could have been used as examples to add a touch of realism.

Overall I would not recommend the film. The casting was poor. The storyline throughout was pretty much boring and predictable and most of the performances were below mediocre. I did however really like the ending. There was a good twist in there. Ikegulu was even in there speaking pidgin, which was not even too too bad. If they must insist on having her in films I say they make her speak pidgin and turn off the awful convoluted British accent. I would say buy this one at your own risk.

The beginning of this film is sooooooooo slooooooooow, however the good news is that is picks up slightly after about 30 minutes.
It is with regret that I cannot even talk about this film without first having a slight rant about Samuel Ofori. This was the first time I had ever seen him in a film and boooy would I avoid anything he is in, in the future.

 
First of all… I just could not for the life of me get over his conk and press teamed with the homeless looking beard and eyebrows. His character solidified my repulse towards him. I found the way that Kofi was telephone stalking a girl that he had never met very disturbing. As is customary he just haaaad to declare undying love directly after their first short conversation where the girl tells him her name.

 
I understand that he is just playing a character but even the way he played it just grossed me out. His effort at being “sexy” and “seductive” failed miserably and came across twisted and perverted. He was using this creepy whispery pervert voice all the way through the film, and that was supposed to make a chick fall in love with him? Even the relationship that he has with his sister in the film didn’t come across to brother/sisterly to me.

 
The story line in this film was just confusing and messed up. The basic premise is that a guy called Kofi played by Ofori meets a girl called Abena played by White over the telephone by calling a wrong number. They fall in love and start a telephone relationship. Her roommate Adwoa played by Appiah is jealous of her “perfect” (scoff scoff) relationship with this telephone guy and tries to muscle in and snatch him away.

 
This involves sending her pictures to the guy instead of her friend’s when she is asked to mail the envelope with pictures. She also engineers for her friend to lose her phone and phones him herself and begins having telephone conversations with him. The whole thing is just pure nonsense. Do not even torture yourself with this nonsensical drivel.

*************SPOILERS************

 

At this point there is nothing I can do but list all the stupid/nonsensical/pointless things that occurred in this movie:

 
#1 There is a scene where Adwoa is sitting with Kofi’s family, before the picture was even sent to him and he was cooing around her as though it was the first time they were meeting. This scene came out of nowhere and made no sense at all. I assumed in the end it must have been a dream; however there was nothing to indicate this.

#2 Abena, the telephone girlfriend started off playing hard to get on the phone with Kofi, and shortly afterwards she is threatening to commit suicide because she is sooooo in luuuurve… NONSENSE!

#3 Kofi who is supposed to be hotness personified has been turned into a mugu by his telephone girlfriend. He starts sending money to one chick he has never even met. Id-ee-ot

#4 Two hot girls fighting over this one homeless looking breathy beast with a jeri curl. NAAAA.

#5 The jeri curl beast sending out his picture to a hot girl as if she is supposed to be impressed by him.

#6 There is a scene where Kofi is dreaming about his telephone girlfriend. It was so disgusting. We see him writhing on the bed with Ginuwine’s Pony playing in the background. We see Kofi waking up from the dream looking masturbated out hot sweaty mess.

#7 Kofi ends up seeing Adwoa, Abena’s friend who is pretending to be her, and one day they are out on a date and he says to her, “Since the day you changed your number, your voice changed drastically and I feel something is missing.” Which kin’ nonsense be dis? Why did the makers feel they had to put that in? Sometimes things don’t need to be said so obviously to make the same point. In fact it was kinda insulting to the viewer. They could have easily have just had him say, “You seem different in person.” Or something a bit more subtle than even mentioning the number change. If he really felt that her voice had changed since her phone number changed, then why wouldn’t he have said something much sooner than he did?

#8 The credits had Ellen Kyei White down as Abena, however all through the film she was called Sappele… I don’t know if that was meant to be a nickname or what… All very confusing.

 
So at the end of the movie Kofi is united with his original telephone love after a showdown at a party.

 
The movie ends with a TO BE CONTINUED…

 
Yeah

Right

Frigg

That!

The film opens with a guy getting shot. A girl is standing in the background watching the scene go down and comes running to his rescue,

 

“Are you alright… Can you drive?”

 

The guy cannot move you dingbat, so how the hell is he going to be able to drive with two gaping holes in his chest? How do you even ask someone who has just been shot, “Are you alright?” Nonsense! After catching on that he may not be in the best of states, you know being shot and all, she calls over a taxi to take them to the hospital.

 

On arrival at the hospital the medical staff there refuse to attend to him as a gunshot victim, without a police report. She then rushes to the police station to get a report only to find that they will not issue a police report without seeing the victim leaving her in a catch 22 situation. Does this really happen? After much agitation and pleading he is seen to without the police report.

 

Beyonce is the President’s daughter. Wealthy and spoilt, anything she wants she gets. This includes Raj. Beyonce meets Raj whilst out shopping and approaches him in a forward manner, showering him with compliments and then paying his bill before handing over her phone number.

 

Raj and Ciara, the poor orphan the girl who saves him are estranged after the hospital incident, although there is not a moment that he is not thinking about her, wanting to find her and thank her for saving his life. He does eventually find her and they begin dating. Whilst Beyonce is falling in love with Raj (pronounced Rush by most in the film), he at the same time is declaring his love for Ciara and even goes so far as to break her virginity. He also announces his intention to marry her, all the while juggling the two women.

 

Why are the two main female characters named after black American pop stars?

 

The deceit comes to light one day when Raj comes home with Ciara (to introduce her to the family) and finds Beyonce sitting on the sofa with his mother and sisters. He sees unperturbed by this sight, and with his arm cosily around Ciara he introduces her to all in the room as his fiancée and Beyonce as “The lady who has been so kind to us.” Eiwoooooooooooo! The shock in Beyonce’s face, to be treated as she were some kindly philanthropist.

 

Beyonce in a rage takes Raj out for “a word.” Ciara steps outside shortly afterwards and hears the whole conversation. She now knows that Raj has been cheating on her and is highly distraught. In his defence he exclaims,

 

“I had to sleep with her. She came on too strong and I couldn’t resist.”

 

After being rejected by Raj Beyonce starts her mission to break up his relationship with Ciara by any means necessary.

 

 

*************SPOILERS AHEAD************** 

 

Beyonce employs some thugs to attack Raj and Beyonce. In this attack acid is poured all over Ciara’s face disfiguring her. Beyonce comes to the rescue by paying Raj’s hospital bills and sending Ciara abroad to get a face transplant on the condition that she fakes her death and starts a new life elsewhere. Beyonce threatens to kill her should she ever re-emerge and divulge the secret. She goes to the extent of taking Raj to Ciara’s tombstone.

 

The face transplant was reeee-deee-culous. Right after the transplant we see this new face, skin glowing not a scar to be seen! YEAH RIGHT! How are you gonna have such a major surgery and ya face look perfect?

 

The film ends with Beyonce and Raj wedding and Marcy (the new face transplanted Ciara) hanging out if a taxi poised to shoot Beyonce. The ending was somewhat of a disappointment. It seemed rushed and a little strange that after all that happened Raj would marry Beyonce, or was it in fact a plan he concocted with Ciara so that they could finally be together? I guess you would have to watch part 3 and 4 to find out!
