A Review of “Living in Bondage” Movie: 5 Great things to learn!

I finally watched the film “living in Bondage” – Breaking free since 2019! Lol

Such a great film, from beginning to the end. Quality pictures and nice story line. It will make anyone to stay glue till the end.

Here are few take!

  1. Igbo Culture and Language was well branded – It appears like a hardcore Igbo movie stemming from the history of the film itself, and resonates the beauty of Africanism in entirety. The attire in costume, the cultural dance, the names of the characters all primarily promoted the Igbo tribe. All the casts are “majorly” Igbo people. One of best retouched movies in recent times. Ramsey and Charles Okpaleke – the producer gave us a good movie.

2. Entrepreneurship comes with lot of Challenges and the desperation from young budding entrepreneurs to wanna try to jump the gun, by overlooking the few working life experiences, because they believe they can do it, can be hurting – except you come with needed patience to grow. That’s the part I see in Nnamdi quest. Nnamdi Swanky J.K.A – the main character was nothing short of a brilliant actor. Good luck with nice height – the film has indeed gave him one of the biggest leverage anyone can get in the industry. At the beginning of the movie, I had to start thinking if I had known him in any previous movie before. Lol..

3. Parenting & Place of Moral Value in Older generation: The Nwories truly exemplified what perfect African parents of older generation represent. They are blunt when necessary and show love when not to be ignored. The father was one of the best characters many may not pay attention to. I love how, he stopped the car halfway on road by matching the break and say, “you will do no such by meeting the Omegos – the ritualist”. It also goes back to the popular African idiom that says, “what the elders see while sleeping, the young ones walking around with two eyes open, may never enjoy such sighting”. When parents advise, we should give it better thoughts than brushing them aside.

4. Ritualism in Fetishism in higher places: More than often, in a bit to beat competition of equality and confer superiority in conquest, many people kill their conscience, spiritual beliefs and humanity in their quest for money, power, fame and influence. And more than often, if not all times, it is a sheer realization of “Had I know – It just doesn’t worth it”. Richard Williams, Obinna etc prototypes are in our communities as top business leaders.

5. Advertising: I love it when a film promotes a business brand. I think Saheed Balogun did this in his first 2 to 3 people cast movie, by promoting lubricants for Cars, at the Mechanic Shop. Movies are like news, almost everyone that cares usually hear about them. Businesses through this, can help sponsor more movie projects. When I saw Libra Motors Hilus buses, I had to quickly check online. It’s one of the biggest traveling companies in Owerri Eastern Nigeria.. Those exotic cars and yacht were beauty scenes I later read some were from Durban, film institute in S.A, especially the yacht while UBA, Dana Airline and Red TV were Major sponsors of the 120million naira budged film (excluding marketing and Ads). It was a major collaboration between the creative industry and the corporate world. Read more about the movie project here.

Lastly, it gives much to expect from the remake of old classic movies, with a blend and touch of modernization in portraying a good story line. Really I had nothing serious to criticize about the movie except few mistakes in the parts of the subtitles. Lol..

I have seen the trailer of Efunsetan Aniwura recently, and it looks like the film will worth it too. Lol

“I came in peace”. Lol.
