“Living in bondage: breaking free” which was Ramsey Nouah’s directorial debut may be brought back to cinemas all around the country. Charles Okpaleke who happens to be the movie’s executive producer made a revealing post that there are plans for a “limited theatrical release by march. For just three (3) days in cinemas nationwide.”
Breaking free includes Nnamdi Okeke, Andy Okeke’s forgotten son from the original movie. Nnamdi is said to be the true son of his father as he also desires the good and glittering things of life but unfortunately cannot afford them. Nnamdi then comes in contact with a Richard Williams who is a big time billionaire who then decides to hand him the key to the good life he enjoys only that it comes at a cost.
The film was both a critical and commercial success – it grossed ₦163 million, and critics praised both Nouah’s directing and lead actor Swanky Jka’s performance. The film is up for 11 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) including Best Actor in a Drama, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director, and Best Cinematographer. Written by Nicole Asinugo and C.J. Obasi, it features familiar faces like Kenneth Okonkwo, Bob-Manuel Udokwu, and Kanayo O. Kanayo. New additions include Nouah, Enyinna Nwigwe, Nancy Isime, Munachi Abii and Swanky JKA, who funny enough was only three months old when the first movie came out.
Will you go see it again if it returns to the cinemas?
