    Those and many others but I get your point tho, his name should have been up there before the whole make-up, grafics and music dept.

    That's the guy between Majid and the dude with the white sneakers.

    But I only know it's him coz I already knew how he looked like...it's not mentionned anywhere.

    No MW!!

    It couldn't have been a "T.K Falope film" because the film is owned by Vivian Ejike (the writer and producer) who is by the way more popular that T.k Falope.

    Only in cases where the producer is not as famous as the director does he/she allow the director of such privileges or honor....... And sometimes it could contractual.

    At the end of the day, disputes resolved or not, viewers have asked questions about director..... So he is on advantage...... The whole buzz is even making him more popular....

    Sky, as far as i knw. Every movie made is a director's film. And why cant it be a TK Falope film? What has popularity got to do with it? She contracted him cos she felt he was capable, he shot the movie with his own style, interpretation and that makes him credible to be given such rights. Its only in nollywood we would start having baseless arguements like this. It cant be a Vivian Ejike film, she only wrote and produced rather it would be "A vivian Ejike" production. It is a TK Falope film cos he directed. Thats the way its done.

    Mai man, you need to stop yarning opaks dia. As long as there is a director attached to a project, whose vision is realised in the making, it is THE DIRECTOR's film. It doesn't matter if the person who hired him is also the producer and writer. It is NOT Ejike's film, but it is Ejike's production. World of difference. It has NOTHING to do with popularity. What are you talking about? You be newbie?

    Honestly she did impress me alot. Nollywood needs to use her more often and yes like u pointed out, older actors do not get good roles or shud i say a variety of roles to explore with. I know she is in "Warrior's Heart" but she played a female dibia.

    where the comrade is concerned, yes the movie is suppose to have started last yr..prolly early last yr. i hope it comes out good but its really taking 4eva. i dont know if its been completed cos aparently OC is suppose to be in school now for acting? i doubt if its for the role. either way, i need to see him in another movie after whitewaters. all the same, thanks Sky.

    pix from the movie i got from his fbk page

    why r u guys crying over spilt milk? get over it. falope dude aint crying but you. He isnt stupid. he is aware of the reasons behind the arrangement. he showed up to the premiere as happy as vivian. You guys are the ones making an issue out of it. The movie clearly states "A Vivan Ejike Movie". you r here arguing over it. If the movie were a Gigli, we wouldnt be having this convo. let go of it.Its not his movie. and yes, u r right, the director owns a movie but he just doesnt own this one it seems. maybe u shud have someone interview him to clear the air out some for you guys? since its really itching alot of people.while others r curious. i am definitely curious as well lol

    Lol! Aunty Biks Happy New Year oh! and Yes its definitely a Watch.

    Its not the best movie around but it is refreshing.
    Genny plays the coldhearted rich woman to the T.
    Ebele Okaro- now this lady knows how to act. She was flawless in this movie and her grandma role was so believable.
    Majid was good and I love his expressions in the movie
    Genny's daughter in the movie(don't know her name) was also good.
    Uche did a great job as the supportive friend.
    The story was good but had some loopholes in it. Like how come a rich woman couldn't locate somebody especially when she was that influencial? what happened to the Hausa politician guy and that storyline?
    and why did Majid have to put that mask over his face at the end? this one is my own question cause that was a stupid disguise. A simple baseball cap lowered to his eyes would have sufficed.

    In all, great movie, picture and acting. 8.95/10

    I just watched this movie...It was not bad at all, but it fell short of my expectations.
    As Angela mentioned, (and I noticed) one whole segment of the movie was practically another version of "Daddy's little Girls"..the whole driver scenario with Majid as Idris Elba, and Genny as Gabriel Union. I also feel that some of the characters could have been either developed more, or eliminated....The movie already had some heavyweights...no need for the extras if they couldn't deliver.
    ..Genny, Majid, and veteran Ebere were a pleasure to watch...no shock here.

    Overall, Vivian is trying to do something new here, so I salute her for that, and hope to see more. She definitely scored an A+ for packaging and presentation. The movie poster alone, is a welcome departure from the Idumota standard chop and paste style.

    Dang. What a recommendation. Good thing I bought & watched the DVD before reading feedback from critics.:D

    Needless to say, I loved it. The only drawback for me was the unnecessarily long flashback scene (explaining how & why Ella did not go to London as planned) otherwise the movie was largely good to go. Good stuff by Vivian.

    Nice movie.
    Genny looked very good in it, she pulled off the role of a mother well, without looking drab and silly.

    I have a BIG issue with Majid's character having a mother who looked very Nigerian and a father who looked over black and naija!! Dammit! Even a blind man can see that majid got some white blood in him!!! Why didnt they get even an albino man to play his father!!!???? hiiiiiiisssss Seriously! Or say he was adopted or something!
