Directed by Tchidi Chikere and starring Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Artus Frank, Stephanie Oforka, Junior Pope, Collette Orji

6/10

Amaka Mustapha played by Omotola Jalade Ekeinde is a college girl hated by her roommates who accuse her of stealing from them. One day when they set upon her Goriola played by Artus Frank comes to her rescue and saves her from their wrath. It would seem that she is innocent and has been mistreated by her roommates however when he drops her back off home his wallet disappears. She really is a thief but the question is what drives this impulse? One minute she can be so pleasant and sweet and the next she is stealing anything that she can get her hands on.

The main subject matter in the movie was original. Big kudos to Tchidi for doing research on kleptomania and the treatment for it. Do they prescribe Prozac for Kleptomania? In this movie they do. I even learned something new because I never knew that Prozac could be prescribed for Kleptomania but apparently it can. Great job Tchidi on going deeper. Kleptomania was a good topic to cover as it is not one we come across regularly in Nollywood. The subject matter was sensitively handled.

I would recommend the movie primarily because of the acting performances from the main characters. Amaka Mustapha is essentially a movie about three women united in the zeal of their problems and that was the part I related to and would expect most people to relate to the most. I had seen the “Mr Ok” bits of the movie in previews which looked hilarious but in reality really wasn’t neither was it even a main part of the story so on that front, as well as the believability factor I was a little disappointed, nevertheless it is worth checking out.

Amaka MUSTAPHA? LOL. And GORIOLA? Why didn't he just go ahead and call that man Gorilla? JESU! I like Tchidi's stories, he tries to bring something different, now if we can just get him NOT to put himself nor his wife in the movies, it would be great.

It was pronounced Gorilla as well it is only because I took the name from the credits it is spelt like that or else it would have simply been GORILLA!!!
