A new movie, Kasala! is set to raise the tone of Nollywood productions for the year 2018 when it drops this Friday, October 12, 2018.
The film, directed and produced by Ema Edosio will be released in Silverbird Cinemas nationwide once it premieres on Friday.
Ema Edosio seeks to represent the lives of the young average Nigerian in her film by portraying stories as they exist in real life.
Kasala tells the story of four boys living on Lagos mainland and struggling through the day to day life of youths who want to make ends meet, while still enjoying the perks that come with youthfulness, which means there’s none of the commonly exaggerated opulence or extreme poverty we tend to see in Nollywood films these days.
Set over a period of 24 hours, these boys are determined to have a good night, and so they steal their uncle’s car to flex at a party. Of course, nothing can come out of this but Kasala! (trouble).
With cast members that include Gabriel Akolayan, Judith Audu- Foght, Kassim Abiodun, Chimezie Ime, Emeka Nwagbaraocha, Jide Kosoko, and more, viewers are definitely in for a comical treat.
Already, Kasala! the movie has traveled round the world and won many international awards for it’s original and realistic display of the Lagos lifestyle. It has been previewed at many film festivals that thrilled its audience and has received many positive reviews locally and internationally.
