Nollywood’s blockbuster presents the intrigues, conspiracy and scheming against its lead character, Regina Daniels, in The Enemy l Know.
In the movie,Regina played the lead role, Zara.
“The Enemy I know’’ is directed by Ozoemena Nwakile and produced by Rita Daniels, mother of Nollywood fast-rising actress, Regina Daniels.
It features Sola Sobowale, Desmond Elliot, Jide Kosoko, Ken Erics, Tana Adelena, Broda Shaggi, and the comic Woli Arole, with singer Naira Marley on cameo appearances in the movie, among others.
Set in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) “The Enemy I know” is a dramatic tale of billionaire ,Anthony Adewale (Jide Kosoko), who dies under suspicious circumstances, resulting in scramble for his wealth by every member of his family.
From its plots to role interpretation by the characters, sound and cinematography, as well as choice of location, the movie attracts amazing nods but not without some knocks.
Regina Daniels, who plays the lead role of Zara, the heir apparent to Anthony Adewale’s business empire, deserves some accolades for an amazing articulation and interpretation of the role.
The 20-year-old billionaire’s wife perfectly displayed composure, dexterity and brilliance of 25-year-old Zara, who is faced with the challenge of managing the business of her ailing father, amid intruding marriage proposal by her boyfriend, Richard.
Award-winning actor, Ken Erics, dazzles in his lover-boy role as Richard, a very `loyal’ lover, who makes marriage proposals to Zara three times and was turned down.
Perhaps the most unusual display of affection and strong will by Richard was when he pays for all tickets to a Cinema, just to be alone with his heartthrob, and have “will you marry me” pop up the screen of the Cinema.
Zara, however, dashes his high hope, saying “I am not ready for your marriage proposal, let the relationship be as it is, I am not ready to be a wife or mother”.
The amazing sound and lighting of the film are clear indications that Nollywood films in recent times have evolved to hold their own on the global stage.
In all, the “The Enemy I know’ is a well-conceived and well-delivered story, and is acclaimed to be viewers’ delight from the stable of Rita Daniels Productions,though there are some shortfalls in the interpretation of some of the roles.
Nevertheless, “The Enemy I know” is a persuasive and thrilling story of love, betrayal and conspiracy that reasserts the saying that “A man’s enemies are those of his household”.
