Veteran Nollywood actors, Richard Mofe Damijo, Zack Orji and Victor Olaotan, are the lead acts in a new Nollywood film titled Three Wise Men.
Produced by Opa Williams and directed by Patience Oghre-Imobhio, the soon-to-be-released comic flick sees all three stars debut in what could readily pass for their first comedy roles.
Like the name suggests, it tells the story of three aged male retirees who have all settled in a suburb to enjoy their retirement benefits.
How they decide to spend this retirement money remains highly humorous and dramatic.
The pack is led by Irikefe (played by RMD), 64, a divorcee who with three failed marriages and five children refuses to remarry. Irikefe decides to live alone as his covetous children are now grown and also live on their own but patiently waiting for him to die so they can swoop on whatever is left of him.
Irikefe is aware of his children’s intentions and wants to make sure he exhausts every savings of his before death. Upon his retirement he refurbishes his flat, buys a laptop, a nice spot car supposedly meant for a young-man, and goes for shopping, for jeans, T-shirt, Papa’s Cap, sneakers and everything a young-man could dream of.
The three men become an item, as Irikefe introduces them to his world of fun, from tracking girls on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, joy riding and picking the finest of young girls home for a nice time, to clubbing.
Irikefe is the yippee-happy-go-old guy man, who sags and wears tattoos. He loves snapping selfies and posting them on his social media pages.”
Zack Orji plays the role of Timi; a retiree and friend of Irikefe who is married to Regina (played by Tina Mba) while Victor Olaotan plays the role of Tobore.
The movie also features Tina Mba, Ebele Okaro, Thelma Nwosu, Uche Nwaefuna, Akunna Nworgu and Stanley Edirin Isokoh. There will be a glamorous premiere for the industry big wigs on December 4 before the film makes its cinema debut.
