Crazy People movie, reported having cost N100m to produce was in one instance viewed as a “comedy-thriller”. Writer and director, Moses Inwang, poured out on the movie saying: “The film is in a class of its own as it is the first Nollywood film that has real-life actors playing themselves as movie characters. Crazy People is guaranteed to blow your minds”.
Interestingly, Crazy People movie’s opening scene has the feel of a proper cinema movie rather than that of a Nollywood cable channel feature. Then as the movie progresses, its storyline uncovers.
However, from the storyline, we are made to understand that popular Nollywood Actor, Ramsey Nouah (playing himself) is the victim of identity theft. Obviously, an impersonator who was “impersonating his person” while he was on a one year or one and a half year break. Getting his movie roles and endorsement deals from “multi-nationals”.
Ramsey Nouah, now back from his break, in the company of his new manager, Lucinda (Chioma “Chigurl” Omeruah), calls a press conference to address the identity theft and call out the impersonator. But all the press conference achieved really is a question about the Director ’s understanding of the concept of blowing a viewer’s mind. Also questioning the movie’s reported N100m production budget.
Crazy People movie took a brilliant story concept and played out its impact with a less than brilliant portrayal of it. While some might not seem to recognize the movie as mind-blowing as promised by the director. However, it gets a five-star rating for originality of concept but a low three-star rating for result.
