7/10

Kinda reminded me of an African sex in the city.

In the bustling city of Accra this movie follows the lives of six single working ladies climbing the career ladder but all feeling unfulfilled. Titania is a grocery store owner. She is 31 and desperate to get married. Yolanda played by Ebi Bright too is 31 and super rich. Kendra Williams is a fearless unit commander of the police’s anti crime division. Zila has been planning weddings for the better part of six years, as a wedding planner and events consultant yet she yearns to plan her own. Kristine Adams is a consultant oncologist is a hospital. Serena Rowlands Mills is a top actress. All these women are friends and they have 2 things common. They are all single women looking for the man of their dreams.

It is not long before most of them become involved with men. Hanks sweeps Yolanda of her feet after meeting at a jewellery auction, real estate millionaire Quincy begins dating Kristine, Kendra meets detective Brad Anderson on the job, Serena dances into the arms of a producer/director, while Zila falls in love with her neighbour who has a girlfriend. Will there be a happily ever after?

The beginning of the movie makes a bold statement:

“No nudity… No sex… Thanks enjoy”

I guess Abdul n em got fed up of all the abuse people were hurling at him for his new role as a porn producer. That was pretty funny. I guess id Venus is pulling out at porn producers supreme that must mean a beginning to the end of nudity in Ghanaian movies. Let us watch this space.

There was a narrator in this movie and I liked the touch it added. Sometimes narration doesn’t work or it adds no value. Here it worked. The picture quality and editing were faultless. One thing you have to give Abdul is that the picture quality is always top notch. The move between scenes is seamless and the editing always adds value of the general enjoyment of the movie even when the script or other elements in the movie are bad.

yes agreed it was a fun feel good movie.
yeah very good movie .... Soul..... it seems as if Ghanaian's are making better movies than naija's ..... of recent I've been enjoying their movie because it's usually well thought , scripted and planned . Have you seen the adulterer another beautiful movie and though they had some bad acting (Excluding John and Jackie)...... but the story, the suspense, was fabulous

Watched it last night....I liked it grinning:

Although I do not think that Mzbel, the Ghana singer was a good fit for the role of a super star actress......give me nadia or even jackie anytime. Mzbel looked a bit too local for me. sweat:

I also think they should have given us some more history as to why Titania hated her daughter so much. I mean, so she does not want her new man to know that she has a child but it still was not clear as to why she hated the child...

This is the reason why I hate watching Abdul razak's movies....he always has a good story but does not know how to execute the movie well.

IT IS OFFICIAL!! Ghanaians have taken over!!

Dayuuum! This movie deserves a 10/10.

It was funny, realistic, story line was tight. Narrator was awesome! Costume was on point! Make up was not loud . VERY CLASSY! Locations was great. Sound was YES! grinning:
Hair styles were not horse tails a.k.a. lace weaves. They were neat.

I looked for faults and I found none!
The scene where the gateman was asking the lady for abortion clinic was so hilarious! And Masubo guy and his diaper got me cracking! lolol
They told a real story with comedic relief and passion.
The scene with the neighbor that brought his hungry fiancee along was hilarious!! :roll
And yeah, the story line about singleness, nice. But I like how they also showed that marriage ain't all that bad. Good job overall.

Emotions were shown without loud screamings et al.

I find myself watching more of Ghana movies these days. *sigh*

Hah, I miss Accra.

Akwaaba! Una do well.
Una don leanr and sabi more than una masters (Nollywood). grinning:

I think it was explained in that Tita was mad that she did not graduate from college, ended up tending to grocery business because she got pregnant too early and her life more or less stopped. She finally found a man and didn't want her daughter to mess that up.
But she changed and loved her daughter in the end.
it was sad to ehar that the daughter was impregnated by her dad twice (the two abortions) sad indeed. I think she was initially lashing out at the innocent kid. She realized her folly later. I mean, the daughter was same age she made her own 'error'....
This movie is GOOD! Not one of thsoe that one could predict the end. There was some suspense....till the end.

The explanation that we were told to me was not reason enough for her to hate that child like it was shown. I mean, she herself made it sound as if the girl was a bad girl and gotten pregnant due to that....for someone who was impregnated by her dad twice did not deserve the kind of hatred that we saw from the mom. I just could not buy that. that is just me.

I felt her hatred was extreme too, but remember her outburst when her friends were trying to talk her out lying about her child? When she went ballistic and said they were jealous? That made me see her as a VERY selfish woman who was ready to sacrifice her child just to get a chance at keeping a man.
Remember the movie 'Precious' with Monique? Its that kinda hatred. Monique's character was allowing her man rape her own daughter. Iit is twisted, but I believe such things happen in real life. There are so many mothers today who may not show hatred to the extreme of NOT wanting to see their child, but the detestation and hatred may be hidden behind the 'mother' facade while they really hate their kids for making them 'miss out in life', or not pursue a goal etc.
My dear, no be every woman wey carry pickin get real maternal instinct. Some women are just baby carriers and some others are real mothers.

You have made some excellent points ssegit especially the comparison with the 'Precious' movie. However, the Precious movie although also drastic had more of a story to it and I could relate to it better. Lying to her friends about not wanting to tell her boyfriend about her child is one thing and her hatred for the child is another. In addition, I have seen numerous movies like this on lifetime and it was executed very well to the point that it does not leaving one wondering that something is missing like I felt while watching the movie. I am not saying that it is not possible for a mother to dislike her child to that extent. It happens and I am aware of that. What I will have liked to see in Abdul's movie is the circumstances that led to that. Yes, he had a lady narrating the story but that was not enough...Titiana's character could have been developed better than he had in the movie...to borrow Beautiful's words

ps....I also kept getting confused with the number of girls....maybe three or four of them could have been better.

Titania? Titania?! Did that name come from a metal that goes by the name of "Titanium"? Where do they get all these weird names from? Simply amazing.

Parents need to teach their daughters to distinguish between a man who flatters her and a man who compliments her .... a man who spends money on her and a man who invests in her .... a man who views her as property and a man who views her properly ..... a man who lusts after her and a man who loves her ..... a man who believes he is God's gift to women and a man who remembers a woman was God's gift to man...... ♥

Thanks Samira.

On Abdul, I actually like how he tasks the minds of the viewer to think any possible reason why that hatred is extreme. Makes one think.

And I think this is why I am loving Ghanaian movies more than Nollywood movies. They don't waste time on unnecessary things. They go straight to the point. If Abdul had expanded on that aspect, my dear, we for get a movie with part 7-10! :roll And na plenty flashbacks be dat O! See how Adam's Apple flash backed a lot too with Mrs. Adams? Kinda dragged the movie IMHO. Gollywood got to do things right that Nollywood is messing up.
That flash back thing to me is sometimes over done! Especially when we see the POV of the wrong person. Tita telling her story [via flashback of course] would have been another full movie on its own. That would have played like: Teenage girl meets boy, gets pregnant, drops out of school, man denies her, and she starts suffering, finds her way to Chicago, stays there for years, decides to return to accra, and some drama about her daughter living with her abusive father. some shouts, some screamings etc etc. [we've seen movies like that already] Am really glad Abdul spared us that same ol' same ol' story line with just a 'mention' of her past. Leaving us all to 'fill in the blanks' with our imagination however we want. :)

LOL u know what, I thought of that too on my way to work. Had he given us some flashbacks, there will have probably been parts five and six to this movie....we did get the point from the narrator so I guess I mo leave it alone.....is just that abdul has a habit of doing this in his movies all the time. I actually know lot of people that know him and I will see if I can be introduced to him when I go to Ghana next year. i will direct him to this website to come and read our comments....hopefully, he will appreciate the feedback and get the idea. All in all, it was a lovely movie.....I feel uncomfortable comparing Ghana movies to Nollywood and so I am not going there....just hope both industries will learn from each other and produce better movies.

Actually the flashback could have been much better than you predicted. Remember the girl's father raped her twice....maybe Tita was never loved by her dad and he abused her daughter and somehow in her sick mind, she thought her dad loved her daughter more than her....something to this effect could have made it more interesting.....i know, it sounds sick but it will have been a good story as it is different and not predictable. :) Tita saying that the girl was a bad girl when in actual sense it was really her own father who had raped her shown that there was a lot Abdul could have done with that part of the movie. The girl obviously was retaliating after the sexual abuse from her dad and then became a bad girl to seek attention i guess.

I think the quality of their movies in terms of the picture quality, shots, seamlessness and editing is definitely on point. Even when the story is crap it can be shot in a way that is sometimes beautiful and make you not notice how crappy the story or script may be.
