“…Nse made me cry on set,” says Kalu Ikeagwu
In recent times, Nse Ikpe Etim has been in the news for good reasons. She headlined in Mr. and Mrs., dazzled in Phone Swap, and got married to her heartthrob, Mr. Clifford Sule.
She is once again in the news as the lead act in new emotive movie, Broken.
In Broken, Nse plays the role of a woman who tries to bury her past, move on in life and pretends that the past never exists. But as always, a dirty past has a way of rearing its ugly head; the two children she left in the past surface and turns her ‘perfect’ life to a living hell in double proportion.
Nse is not the only act with ‘living and troubling’ past in the movie, Bimbo Manuel, who plays the role of Nse’s husband, is the father of the house girl; a secret he desperately wants to keep away from Nse.
Kalu Ikeagwu, the philandering corper had a ‘bushmeat’ in the village girl that proves too strong to devour and digest. One way or the other, the lives of the three had a meeting point where sanity, life, happiness and silence got broken.
Speaking on their various experiences on set, Kalu Ikeagwu said Broken is one movie he can’t seems to forget in a hurry.
“At a point I was crying watching Nse act. It was like a real life scene to me. The storyline is touching, I’ve never worked on movie like this,” he said.
The producer and director, Bright Wonder, said it is time the industry stepped up.
“I learnt a lot from my first movie, I took all the experience and that of others and put them into this one. This is a product of an improved me,” he said.
Speaking further on the movie, he said, “Broken is a social movie that addresses the menace of child abuse, neglect, trafficking, exposing its adverse effects and repercussions on the Nigerian child and on the Society, and hence is a project that seeks to reaffirm the place of the family as the bedrock of the society, thereby using the motion picture as a channel implored at raising public awareness against the dreadful menace of child abuse.”
Bright Wonder produced the mildly popular movie of Away and Beyond.
