I finally picked this movie up with Modupe Temi and i was cracked up till the very end. Funke Akindele earned a big respect for her performance in this movie for me and some many people we saw the movie together with. How do i start?


stars; Funke Akindele, Ronke Odusanya, Iyabo Ojo,Ireti Osayemi Odunade Adekola, Eniola badmus, Tola oladokun etc

Brief synopsis; A village local champion, Suliat is granted admission into a city university to study. Arriving lagos, she tries all she can to be like all the hapening girls and in the process becomes an object of mockery. She meets an old village friend she had once helped and joined their clique. This spurs a new beginning for her as they do they can to upgrade her.



My thoughts;Very funny movie, never knew Funke could crack me up that bad. if you have seen Ronke Oshodi's Gbajumo, there is something similar with the comic feel of this movie. But it has a part two which am seriously looking out for...havent seen a yoruba movie in a while and this was such a grand way to welcome myself back...as am typing this am even reeling with so much laughter. Abeg make una watch this film. Its worth it.

Intrigued? Am intrigued hearing that you were intrigued by the poster cos you hardly get intrigued when it comes to nollywood.
oh, i am constantly intrigued by Nollywood... rarely satisfied, but very often intrigued!

besides, i don't really consider YMG to be "Nollywood" per se... and i generally tend to prefer the graphic style employed in the YMG posters, anyway. they tend to look more like "real" movie posters than like randomly thrown-together glamour shots and stuff.

:1iagree:
Thats true, some YMG posters are quite good and they are creative with the way they go about their poster concepts. The average nollywood poster is too cliche, na so so stars dem go pack put for poster.....with not a single creativity to beautify of make it look appealing.

i call it "YMG."

i don't see the term "Nollwood" as being synonymous with "Nigerian films"... to me, it describes a particular *kind* of Nigerian movie, but there are other varieties of Nigerian filmmaking that are not necessarily "Nollywood."

Which particular kind of Nigerian movie?

EMGs?

EMGs that tend to have the same theme?

And what is Nollywood to you?

oh come on... i don't really have to explain it, do I?

you know... the standard, garden-variety English language Idumota VCD feature... that is Nollywood.

the work of Ngozi Onwuorah is not Nollywood, neither are the Nigerian filmmakers who get their financing from the BBC or NGOs. the film school-trained folks working around Jos are not Nollywood. Mama Put is not Nollywood. Pascal Atuma is not Nollywood.

Abike you probably misunderstood him. He meant nollywood to him refers to those group of business oriented ignorant jackasses parading the whole place which quaterbaked films and junks....nollywood has always been a word that signals not getting it right so i kinda get TS

They are absolutely not nollywood. Thats why some people still use the word "The nigerian film industry"
