Inu Ogba, the Yoruba language film produced and directed by Tolu Fagbure, from the Rare Edge Media stable has been pleasing movie lovers since it premiered on January 15.
The flick tells that story of Siju (Lateef Adedimeji), who fights on two fronts – to keep his love with Mofe (Jumoke Ajadi) burning and to expose the conniving forces of corruption on campus. Malaolu (Sunkanmi Omobolanle), Jare (Adeyemi Adeyemo), Students’ Representative Council Speaker (Taiwo Ibikunle) and the Dean of Students (Tunde Ola Yusuf) hatch a plan, which sets off a string of occurrences.
“It is the usual Nollywood romantic ‘happily ever after’ drama story with a different twist; though everything still ends happily for everyone, the love triangle takes an unexpected turn away from the established expectations,” said a statement announcing the film’s release.
What sets the movie apart, said the producers, is the metaphoric setting within a university campus, which is used to represent the place of youth and exuberances; it is a graphic representation of the period when emotions run amok.
