Definitely overrated.I do not see what the ravings are all about.The whole premises on which all the dramas were based on was mad weak!It had a potential to be a really good flick,but they fluffed it.



Why are you always criticising Emem Isong's movies? It would be nice if you'll be more constructive with your criticism. I mean suggest alternatives to the movies you're criticising. help:

Once again "the governor" (Lancelot) did a good job. The title of the movie is Behind Closed Doors. It starred RMD, Stella, Patience Ozorkwo and Desmond Elliot.

The story is about two brothers, the younger one was impotent and was married and of course couldn't bare a child. On the other side, the senior brother who was not married, also smoked and developed cancer of the lungs and was expected to die within six months. The two brothers came out with a plan (even though, it took some effort to convince the younger one) that the senior brother sleeps with his wife to get them a baby before he dies so that their family leanage will not be wiped out.

They both convinced the wife and they all went ahead with the plan, just moments after the execution of the plan the younger brother changed his mind but it was too late. Their highly religious mother came in prayed and God did a miracle so the Senior brother's cancer vanished. Life after was a hell for the wife, mother and the two brothers.

I rate this movie 10/10 and recommend. Can you imagine Patience Ozokwor speaking in Tongues? :shock

Ermmm....b4 someone comes and chops off my head...let me just say aforetime that this is strictly my opinion and nothing more!

This film reminded me of all the reasons why I don't watch nigerian movies or should I say why I find 98% of them boring, unintelligent, lacking in ideas and innovation. The story line was bad enough and as always, predictable. The scenes were unnecessarily too long. I mean don't Nigerian producers know that you don't have to show a whole 5 minutes of prayers to get the viewers to know that prayers were being offered?

I actually found the film irritating. And then it has 3 parts!!!! :shock I mean the whole story could have been made into just one part and still have 30 minutes blank space left! Too many redundant scenes.

Anyways.. perhaps nigerian producers should read more books on the art of film production with a view to improving their quality. This film was in my opinion, shambles.

I do not mean to offend anyone...but that's my honest view.

I feel you jare. Behind Closed Doors just didn't do it for me. Too winding and needs to be edited by more than two hrs. Haba the whole film from part 1 to part 3 can be fitted into just one part like you said! Perhaps you should watch KEEPING FAITH-that's one Nigerian movie that the scenes were quite to the point and had a natural charm (it was also just one part). I'm still waiting for Ego Boyo and Amaka Igwe to make more movies. They seem to be the only ones that understand that a movie should be tight and leave you with characters that u shd remember long after the movie's ended. Even Tade Ogidan (Dangerous twins), Tunde Kelani and Tchidi Tchikere have all fallen under the spell of making parts 1 to hundred of dragging scenes and repititions! Let us pray for the Nigerian Film Industry o!

My dear, your views are welcome. As africans we don't want to grow, we think because Mr. A loves Cassava, Mr. B should also love it. And that is why we have these tiny ones cropping up here. Sorry for wasting your money. But from the look of things, you really don't like Naija movies, try and be watching them, i beleive there are few ones you would love. :biggrinsa

Stop criticising Nigerian Moview. They have come a long way, lets give them a chance they'll improve sha. It doesnt take a day to improve and be hollywood perfect.

i loved the movie and waiting for part 3. I own both part 1 and 2.
