Title: Dark Side
Starring: Bayo Alawiye, Joseph Benjamin, Uru Eke, Sylvia Udeogu, Bayo Alawiye, KC Ejelonu, Yemi Solade, Nobert Young
Director: Bayo Alawiye
Dark Side tells a different story. Bankole (Bayo Alawiye), the heir to a wealthy gas conglomerate goes blind through an accident. After surgery, he regains his sight but pretends to still be blind. There are strong performances from most of the actors apart from Sylvia Udeogu who plays his wife but cheats with his best friend (Joseph Benjamin). The soundtrack is well arranged. However, the visual effects particularly the blurring and blending of the background coupled with bad lighting almost ruins everything. A line from Bankole sums up the message of the movie: “I regained my sight through my blindness.”
