The Grudge produced by amazing Tinsel star Funmi Holder has become a silent block buster after five weeks of being in cinemas. It is said to have grossed over N20 million.
The movie which is still showing in cinemas across Nigeria stars top class actors, such as Odunlade Adekola, RMD, Funmi Holder, Ireti Doyle, Jaiye Kuti, Ijeoma Anieboh and many others, have left Nigerians talking and wondering if ace actors RMD or Odunlade Adekola is the secret behind the huge success of the movie.
Funmi Holder is the first and only Tinsel star to ever produce her own movie. The Grudge tells the story of two lovelorn spouses from separate marriages and a lonely window intersects as they struggle to deal with a grudge that has festered for so long. It is a phenomenal movie that deals with the hurt, betrayal, jealousy, greediness, unrequited love, seduction, domestic violence and a lot more.
Also, the plot of the movie is super engaging and the careful selection of a handful of actors who bring the screenplay to life is one of the best things that happened to this movie. The extraordinary interpretation of role by leading Yoruba actor Odunlade Adekola blew the minds of many viewers who are of the opinion that Odunlade is no doubt the favorite character in the movie with his ability to perform excellently and make the audience laugh. It is noteworthy that The Grudge is his first English feature.
Multitalented Nollywood actor, RMD, on the other hand plays the role of a loving husband and devoted father whose past mistake kept hurting his wife. RMD is a man who had gone full circle and commands respect anywhere he goes. He is indeed a man of many parts; an Actor, Lawyer, former Commissioner and above all, a family man.
Which of Odunlade Adekola or Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) would you say is the major influence to the success of the movie which is currently showing at Silverbird Cinemas, Viva Cinema, Genesis Cinema and others?
