I finally got to see this movie after all the anticipations, ohs and ahs...and i have these to say......


Irapada is the story of Dewunmi a business contractor who is into building construction and lives in the nothern part of the country. Dewunmi's is visited by his foster mother and she informs him of an unforseen danger that looms but could be reversed if only he performs some sacrifice which he refuses saying he doesnt believe in all sorts.....soon his foster mother dies and Dewunmi is faced with hard times,seeking answers to questions of paternity, battling the pain of almost loosing all he has worked for and seeking solution.




Good parts of the film: I thought the quality was nice, not the best but picture quality and sound was beyond what is obtainable in nollywood and so i applaud mr Afolayan for this...it could have been better but i liked some scene that were beautifully shot.

Dewunmi's wife in the movie was played by beautiful Deola Oloyede who acted a small role in Ego Boyo's Keeping faith. Remember the scene where Genny paid Fred Amata a suprise visit only to see he was married and met his wife...yeah she acted as Fred's wife in KF....she did well in Irapada and she was the highlight of the movie for me.



The parts i didnt like; Now i thought the role of Dewunmi could have been better played by someone else, mr Afolayan should have concentrated more on producing...the role was too big for him and it showed, his acting was below the radar and i was disappointed. He was just himself...you need to get out of your comfort zone sometimes and play that role well but i didnt get any goose pimples watching him act...it was more like watching ice melt.

Angela Phillip who played the role of Dewunmi's wife's friend was also flat. She was the weakest link as far as Irapada is concerned. For a movie of that standard i expect that you get someone who would play the role to the T...maybe Bimbo Akintola or some new good actress. Angela was just off-IT...its very important the cast you choose cos they also compliment the movie.

The accident scene was also not the best, maybe they shouldnt have shown it at all. Yes it was ok but i have seen better in today nolly flicks so Irapada could have done better.

And then it had a part two. Movies like that are expected to be in just one parts...so afterall its still the same old same old with a little touch.

There was not much fufillment after watching the film, not like when i finished watching White waters and couldnt wait to review and i kept watching and watching. But its not a bad one, the storyline is not one that i fancy too much but thats what they chose and i have nothing against it. It was also good to see brilliant actors like Toun Oni, Late Joe Adekwah and Kunle Coker who played a cameo in the movie.

I think i would rate it 5/10 mainly for technical evaluation.

Thats why i hate fully reviewing a movie when no one has seen it. It wasnt bad oh, it just didnt werk for me. Trust me it werked for a lot of people and they enjoyed it. I think you might like it too, its just my own opinion, habah!

In that case, I am not buying until both parts are out. Which ones with all this rubbish? I think Kunle Afolayan sold it to some marketer who then split the movie - at least that is what it says on the website. Forgerrit o. I am losing patience with all these people. Any film wey no complete, forgerrit!!:sterb003::fbreath:sport-smi

The name of his company "Golden Effects" is written as the sole marketer so i think he marketed himself...he probably distributed it to major distributors. Not sure sha.

Aha!Was it that bad,peci?:confused:
To be honest, I wish I reviewed straight after watching it now.....I should've just offloaded what I felt immediately......now I can't even remember why I was not happy with this flick.....and I am not sure i want to put myself through it again just for review sake......:1087: I really want someone else to see it......

If you want to buy a copy, contact me for the details of where i ordered mine from online....
