So I recently discovered IrokoTV (I know I’m very veeery late lol), and it’s amazing. It’s been consuming most of my time as I now get to watch so many Nigerian and Ghanaian movies. It’s like the African version of Neflix. Just type in any Nigerian or Ghanaian actor/actress and you will surely find a movie that they are starred in. To have a wider choice of movies, I would advise everyone to get Irokotv Plus, it just gives you more variety of movies, just like with any website where you have to pay.
But to start with, I’ve just watched Bachelors a movie produced by Venus Film Production and directed by Pascal Amanfo starring “Jackie Appiah, James Gardener, Yvonne Nelson, Elikem Kumordzie, Nana Ama McBrown, Eddy Watson, Beverlyn Afaglo, and Ingrid Elizabeth Alabi” as main cast. In my opinion the entire cast was perfectly chosen for each character. In some movies that I’ve watched I felt like the actor/actress playing a specific role was wrongly chosen, as the entire act didn’t come across as believable. A good movie for me is when I have forgotten the actual name of the actual actor and only know the name of the character they are playing. That means the actor/actress has played that role so amazingly that I truly believed him/her to be that person they were playing.
Well in the movie Bachelors I had that feeling.
Here is a little intro to what the movie is all about, for those who haven’t watched it yet:
“Rick (Elikem Kumordzif), Josh (Eddy Watson), and Kojo (James Gardner) who at the same time is Alex and Gregg, might have taken the word Bachelor a tick too far. Having more than one woman is standard and sex and fun is all that matters. Even if that means exploiting handicapped Helen (Yvonne Nelson) of her money and breaking her heart, or getting three friends to fight each other over one man, or even claiming to have HIV to get rid of a woman.
However, what they didn’t know but got to learn very quickly is that an angry woman is a dangerous woman and will make sure to get her vengeance.”
Now let me introduce to you Ghana’s hottest male actors, the three Bachelors!!
James Gardener as “Kojo, or Alex, or Gregg” or like I like to call him in this movie “The 3 in 1 man”, Elikem Kumordzie as “Rick” and Eddie Watson as “Josh”.
I’m a woman but I believe that being a Bachelor is all about having fun. It didn’t seem like the fun part lasted too long for these three men. Whilst women are talking about who they are going to marry these man think about who they will have sex with next. Marriage is no were near their conversations. And then there are all these lies men tell to keep women from finding out that they are being played. Josh claiming his brother having Brest cancer, Rick claiming to have HIV, and Kojo always being out of town. Well guys, at one point or the other even you will run out of lies to tell and have to come up with the real explanation.
Former Miss Ghana contestant Yvonne Nelson was playing the role of the handicapped Helen and the girlfriend or should I say one of many girl friends of Josh (Eddy Watson). I felt like this was one of her best performances. The emotions she brought across were very believable. One thing I am really passionate about is progress and I can say that Yvonne Nelson as one of the actresses that I have followed through the movies for many years, has progressed a lot. Not that she was ever a bad actress, but the characters she has played over the years have come across more believable, which makes watching movies where she is starred in even more enjoyable to watch. Not just is she an amazing actress she is super pretty as well. That alone will bring a lot of peoples attention to any movie she is starred in. Her beauty speaks to everyone. It speaks to women as they want to look like her and equally to men as they would like to date her. My most favourite part of her in the movie Bachelors was when she found out that Josh’s sister is actually one of his side chicks. I really felt her pain in that moment.
Amazing performance Yvonne, looking forward to may more movies like that 🙂 .
Probably the most cruel way to get rid of your girlfriend is claiming you have HIV. This is what Jackie Appiah starred as Liz, Rick’s girlfriend had to bare, only for her to leave so he could have sex with another chick. Little did he know that women are mainly one step ahead.
My favourite moment of her was when she laughs him straight in the face and called him Kwasia (a fool).We need more women like Liz in this world, strong and smart women who turn a bad situation into a triumph. I believe that Jackie Appiah too has progressed over the years. I am looking forward to watching many more movies with you starred in them.
Last but not at least, it’s the three best friends who have been dating the 3 in one man guy, Kojo.
Beverlyn Afaglo as “Tisha”, Ingrid Elizabeth Alabi as “Pamela” and Nana Ama McBronw as “Linda.
Whilst Linda was dating Gregg, Pamela was dating Alex, and Tisha Kojo, all being the same man. What made me laugh the most was when they found out that they were dating the same person and instead of finding a solution of how to get back at him, they were fighting each other. It’s sad that that actually happens in real life too. Ladies don’t fight the side chick, fight the man who slept with the side chick and cheated on you!!!
I loved the movie, it was fun dramatic and at the same time very entertaining. I hope to see many more movies as such. For those who have not yet watched the movie, do watch the trailer.
