Nollywood Movie Review – “Alakada Reloaded”
Alakada re-loaded follows the experience of Yetunde Animashaun (Toyin Abraham) who pretends to be from a very well to do family but her lies consistently come back again to haunt her and come to a head when she is encouraged on the possible TV show along with different housemates.
Evidently, I am late on the Yetunde experience as there have been about 3 movies relating to the personality but better late than not, right? Because I had no background on the movie or its own character(so ), ” I moved into the cinema blind and absolutely didn’t hope that the actors largely spoke the Yoruba language. If like me you never communicate Yoruba, don’t be concerned, the subtitles will allow you to and moreover, the actions of the mad Yetunde do not need any translation that you decipher.
Toyin Abraham was her craziest best making a complete fool of himself judging by the laughs at the cinema, everyone was really getting a kick from it. Although a number of the jokes have been lost in translation, so I really could follow along with in all honesty, so that they certainly weren’t especially amazing. The jokes had been clichéd and so were juvenile alike to this lies we told in JSS 2 about how our father owns 2 lions, a talking dog and also 20 cars…but apparently, we still find that kind of jokes amusing.
Though I’m biased since I’m not a fan of pictures about semi-illiterate individuals make a fool of themselves for the entertainment (such as Akpos and Jenifa) the absolute number of celebs featured like Ali Baba,” Odunlade (the mythical me), Helen Paul as well as Ebiye, if make this picture appeal to a really wide crowd.
Quite frankly, I did not know where in fact the picture has been going because it only did actually stretch thickly with Yetunde putting herself into a spat. I really couldn’t find the plot direction or the way the battle (if any) would definitely be solved since there wasn’t any actual conflict or plot. It took a while to realise the plot has been actually that — a wandering harbour of laughs.
Anyways, fans of this Alakada franchise may enjoy this movie and if you prefer Funke Akindele’s Jenifa or even AY’s Akpos, this film is unquestionably down your street
