AYINLA The Movie

As a veteran filmmaker, Tunde Kalani proves that with age comes knowledge as his account of the late Apala musician has undertones of Classical Greek tragedies.

Like Sophocles’ Oedipus, Ayinla Omowura finishes up being a victim of his tragic flaw; his hot-headedness and rash nature set him on a path that ends up in his demise. It’ a journey that’s each touching and instructive, with a splash of the necessary Yoruba culture to lend genuineness to a well-told tale.

Ayinla begins at a important moment within the lifetime of the singer; his fame has attracted the eye of the media associate degreed an influential show promoter named Ajala (played by actor and film producer
Kunle Afolayan).

Ajala starts creating the mandatory moves in preparation for Ayinla’ first-time tour to London; one thing that the rising star is initially skeptical about. however once Ayinla is hip that it’d solely make him greater, he offers his consent to the trip.

miss Manuel is an editor who sends his inexperienced author (Ade Laoye) to induce near to the budding musician whose name is spreading like wildfire. Uncovering the person behind the parable proves to be a frightening task that threatens to overwhelm her. however she must succeed as a result of if she doesn’t, she is going to lose her job.

Besides his temper, Ayinla features another weakness; he has a factor for the ladies. once his manager Bayowa (an afro-wearing Mr. Macaroni) introduces him to at least one of the latter’ girlfriends, it starts a sequence of events that culminate in a confrontation at a brew parlour, ending in tragedy.
Shot in Abeokuta (the town of Ayinla), the landscape and melodious Yoruba tunes offer a tremendous scene to the story. It’ a mix Kelani is aware of works well and he uses the weather within the best ways in which possible.

Now, for the problems I had with the film. Firstly, the makeup for the character of Bayowa (talking concerning his hair) isn’t smart enough. It’ pretty obvious that’ not his hair. I mean, wouldn’t it are higher if the fop simply grew some hair?

Secondly, the standing fans seen in a number of the scenes were all of. Why weren’t they turned on, I wonder. strangely enough, the characters in those scenes ne’er appeared like they were hot.

Adedimeji Lateef as Ayinla

The very last thing is Adedimeji Lateef’ rendition of Ayinla’ songs in some of the scenes. His lips aren’t in set with the lyrics within the initial musical scene and it absolutely was terrible in my opinion. In different scenes, there perceived to be a disconnect because it looked like he was solely mouthing the words being sung. Fortunately, there’s a marked improvement and in later performances, the actor fuses utterly with the music.

The costumes and set items (particularly the cars) actually mirror the Eighties amount within which the story is set, and therefore the numerous departments merit commendation for this. I’m glad the dialogue is generally in Yoruba because it serves to raised project the origins, beliefs, and superstitions of the titular character.

Now, back to Lateef’ portrayal of Ayinla. I confess that I haven’t truly seen him act in additional than one or 2 films and then didn’t grasp what to expect from him here. I’m happy concerning that as a result of he simply blew Maine away!

The songs play a outstanding role in giving an insight into Ayinla’ psyche. I’m not a devotee of Apala music or Yoruba music for that matter however I couldn’t facilitate but get pleasure from the verses because the music played.

there’s conjointly some humour amalgamate into the plot and therefore the smartest thing concerning it’s that these funny moments are available at the correct moments.

The supporting characters (particularly Afolayan) play their roles well. approval to any or all the members of the forged and crew. Their efforts created all the items move in a very complete way.

 

Conclusively, Ayinla proves to be well worth the hype. That it succeeds is basically because of Adedimeji Lateef and director Tunde Kelani. No film is ideal however this one takes its place among the Nollywood greats in recent times.
