Movie Review: “Light Will Come”


Verdict: Entertaining. If the cinemas are in your itinerary this weekend, and you are having a healthy craving for Nollywood, and you’ve seen ‘The Wedding Party’, which you should have seen by the way, then ‘Light will come’ is most definitely your best choice this weekend.

It’s entertaining enough that, regardless of how movie-deep you are as an individual, you won’t leave the cinema hating yourself. Though like us, you might find many of its funny scenarios, stale and mostly predictable, nevertheless there are some really good laughs to be had here; especially thanks to Saka, a.k.a Hafiz Oyetoro. He saved the day.

Nollywood comedies are really having it easy at the cinemas. Because Nigerians being the wonderful people they are, are so easy to please; they laugh at everything and anything, so producers seem more and more reluctant to put in the true measure of thoughtfulness and acumen any true and worthwhile comedy deserves.

And so, whilst ‘Light will come’ played, the hall does happen to erupt into heartily loud bouts of laughter many times over. Enough for us to conclude, most Nigerians will find this otherwise stale comedy entertaining enough for it not to be a complete waste of money. Just not enough to warrant heading to the cinemas specifically for its sake.

Recommended. Nothing else new, from Nollywood, beats it this weekend.
