Review of the film Atunwa: Beautiful attempts hampered by Rush Rush work

Atunwa, the movie just recently came out in theaters, and we were among the first groups of Nollywood movie fans to watch it.

Atunwa, starring seasoned performers like Tina Mba, Jide Kosoko, Okey Uzoeshi, Yomi Fash, and Kehinde Bankole, was slated to be a film that examined the numerous strange events in our society from a traditional African/Yoruba perspective.

It tells the story of Kemi Oye (played by Tina MBA) and her past life, which is haunting the entire family.

For starters, once you miss out on the first 10 minutes of the movie, you will remain lost till the end of the movie.

We applaud the story writers for providing a fresh perspective to appraising many events often treated with levity, especially the belief in reincarnation.

In the norm of the glorious ages of African civilisation, our African root was brought to relevance through the consultation of the Ifa Priest and divinations.

While they are some scenes quite unnecessary and prolonged, the movie keeps you battling with mixed feelings, suspense and anger because they are so many ‘whys’.

The movie, asides from its uncommon storyline, teaches contentment and more reasons to fight for a peaceful family.

As much as we really longed to see the end of Kehinde Bankole and Yomi Fash, the writers didn’t make that end worthwhile. It was hurriedly done and lost its essence. All hopes came crashing, leaving viewers hungry for more.

We would have given Atunwa the movie a high five, but the ending and other over-prolonged, unnecessary scenes stole the shine away.

For Atunwa it’s 5/10.
