It’s yet another story of a rich prince falling for a poor girl against the advice of overly aristocratic and snobbish parents, but with a twist this time. The question is, is the twist fascinating enough that one should sit through these 3 hour long bore of a movie?

And I say No! The only near entertaining thing about this movie is Osita Iheme’s presence in it. Mr. Iheme plays the role of a royal jester (a concept that’s relatively new in our royal movies), and thankfully he somehow manages to turn this jest of a movie into a less painful experience.

To state it simply, the movie is boring. For the first half hour or so it’s excruciatingly boring and awfully ridiculous. Then comes an increase in Mr. Iheme’s scenes and the boring aspect is reduced but ludicrousness of the entire thing doesn’t go away.The first part of the movie drags and right before part 2, one can say the movie then begins.

The part two introduces the second only aspect of originality the movie can boast off, asides from the royal jester, i.e the kidnap. This point is ideally supposed to be a breathe of fresh air, the movie is supposed to kick off. Finally some action, some conflict, some drama but no, the movie still drags.

For the most part of this movie I was guessing that maybe it was intended to be a satire, what with the random unnatural scenes between the prince and his jester, the over-exaggerated blonde hair girl and the musical score. Then towards the end of the movie I was entirely convinced that it was a satire, the movie maker just didn’t know it. How else do you explain the score that was 50% over-dramatic and 50% sounding like something from Tom and Jerry.

The movie looks hurriedly put together, especially for Mr. Chikere, and like someone’s last minute idea. Not many concepts were properly developed and most of it was a chore to watch. Solomon Akiyesi who is otherwise a fantastic actor was not well suited to his role, John Dumelo found himself attempting to be funny more times than he could actually be, Walter Anga tried very hard to act but just lacked conviction, and Ese Broadricks still has a long way to go as an actress but one cannot deny that she does an ok job.
