NR ReviewGenre: Drama
Props to Afe (who is also directing the upcoming movie, “Stripped” starring Beverly Naya, Joseph Benjamin and Ramsey Noah) because I did see some traces of actual cinematography in this movie. The movie is in only three parts!
-Story: [3 out of 5] A really good story!
-Originality: [1 out of 5] Regardless of the cancer twist, it’s still something we have seen before for the most part.
-Predictability: [0 out of 5] Takes a slide on the predictability stair well from beginning to end.
-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5] Props to Afe (who is also directing the upcoming movie, “Stripped” starring Beverly Naya, Joseph Benjamin and Ramsey Noah) because I did see some traces of actual cinematography in this movie. The movie is in only three parts! After seeing, “His Royal Majesty” a few days ago, this was definitely great news to me. However, there were many typographical errors in opening and closing credits in both actor names and crew titles listing. The subtitles were inconsistent/incomplete.
-Acting quality: [2 out of 5] Yvonne Okoro is a breathtaking actress. Carried her character/role from beginning to end with such ease. Flawless! But the one that surprised me the most in this movie was definitely Artus Frank. Ha! The boy killed it! I loved his performance from beginning to end. And if you know anything about me, you know I usually absolutely hate this guy’s performances. Why? Because e no sabi talk. Honestly, he is seriously speech-challenged if there’s such a thing. But in this movie, he had to speak pidgin from start to finish and he did it so darn gracefully. If to say na like this eem dey speak pidgin eh? Majid for get serious competition by now. See what Yvonne had to say about her role below…
THE MOVIE SASHA IS OUT- ITS OFFICIAL I CANT SPEAK PIDGIN NO MATTER HOW MANY TUTORIAL FRANK ARTUS GIVES… fb.me/1MQQa8JG1

Extras were really very sub par. Dan Tei Mensah was ok and Vivian was immaculate as always. One person’s acting that really went above and beyond to piss me off was a certain Vivian Amegashie who played the role of Sandra, the Landlord’s dying wife. I think I’ve seen her on screen before (she kinda reminds me of Selassie Ibrahim), and if there’s any justice in the world I won’t have to see her again
-Setting: [3 out of 5] On point
-Costume/Make-Up: [3 out of 5] Good.
-Props and Graphics: [3 out of 5] Ok
-Video Quality: [2 out of 5] Fair
-Audio Quality [3 out of 5] Ok
-Soundtrack: [3 out of 5] Loved the traditional touch. However, stolen song wasn’t credited ['Because I Got High' - Afroman]
-Musical Score: [1 out of 5] Loved it! However, it was stolen and was not credited so.. sorry. ['Braveheart Theme' by James Horner]
