Some film critics say ‘The Delivery Boy’, a film that explores the back story of terrorists, deserves the Oscars and other international awards.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the intense, independent film was written and directed by award-winning filmmaker, Adekunle ‘Nodash’ Adejuyigbe.
‘The Delivery Boy’ is the story of a runaway teenage suicide bomber (Jammal Ibrahim) and his newfound ally, a young prostitute (Jemima Osunde) who must rely on each other to survive the night.
Following a screening of the film in Abuja, critics noted that a lot of planning in terms of cinematography, scripting and acting had gone into the film.
Tokoni Bozegha said, “everything in this movie is as great as what we see in Oscar-winning movies. This is great material and Nodash should be applauded for making an amazing film.”
David Arinze said, “The message was effectively communicated with clarity. Alot of things stood out for me. From the quality of the sound effects, the picture quality, the props and makeup.
“Indeed the Director, Nodash has created a multiple award winning movie. Quite an Informative one. Kudos,” he said.
Also, Daniel Eronini said, “ The story line is top notch. When I saw.the title, I was expecting a normal act as per nollywood but I got grips every scene and felt the suspense.
“Big ups to the director, Nodash. If this movie does not win an award, I will do the ‘Kanye West’,” he said.
NAN reports that critics also praised the acting despite the fact that there were no big stars in the movie.
Ejike Manny said, “Are we just going to overlook the fact there was no major Nollywood name in the movie the delivery boy?
“Moral of the story is you don’t need major names to execute a great movie. You just need a great story and execution,” he added.
