As the Eid-el Kabir festivities begin, PREMIUM TIMES recommends five Kannywood movies to enjoy during the holiday.
1. Hassana da Husaina – featuring Saratu Gidado, Patience Ozokwor, Rabilu Musa and Suleiman Bosho
The movie features Patience as Hussaina in her first Kannywood role. Saratu Gidado played her twin sister, Hassana. Sulieman Bosho and Rabilu Musa were their husbands, Bosho and Ibro.
The movie is about an army general who arranges for his troublesome twin sons to get married to another set of female twins. It is a great comedy that one would enjoy over a bowl of sallah meat.
Zeenat is about a jealous uncle who makes his niece’s life miserable after the death of her father. He forces her to marry a security guard who turns out to be a prince.
This movie seems best to be watched at night after all the family visits on the day of Eid.
3. Uwar Mugu – starring Halima Atete, Adam Zango, Rabiu Rikadawa, Aisha Yar Kano
Uwar Mugu is about a bad mother – Aisha yar Kano, and her evil son, Adam Zango. She supports and encourages him to be a menace to society.
Uwar Mugu is action-filled from start to finish; a day after Sallah will be great time to watch it.
4. Gudun Wuce Sa’a – starring Rahama Sadau, Mohammed Bello, Fadila Mohammed
Gudun Wuce Sa’a is a movie about revenge.
Rahama Sadau as Menar sets out to avenge the death of her father, who was killed by his friend that stole all his wealth.
Watch this movie with your friends. They will most likely like it.
5. Ina kika je – Yakubu Mohammed, Hadiza Gabon, Aisha Tsamiya
The movie is filled with suspense and surprises.
Yakubu Mohammed, ‘Hamza’ was married to Hadiza Gabon, ‘Zainab’ and they are living happily together.
Not quite long into their marriage, problems started, engineered by Zainab’s best friend Rashida Mohammed, ‘Talatu.’
I recommend you watch the film at night, immediately after dinner.
