A lighthearted and entertaining film from director B. Ncube about two friends Frank and Khanya, with the latter up to another money-making scheme, convincing the former to put the boss' money into a fixed boxing match saying it's a sure bet. This action-comedy flick boasts of a great cast with Wandile Molebatsi playing the lead character of Frank. Molebatsi is a South African actor and musician who has appeared in films like Gothia Caper and had a walk in role in the ER episode "There are no angels Here". Doc, the antagonist of the story is played by Luthuli Dlamini, a South African actor but raised in England hence his accent. He is an accomplished theater and TV actor. This is a must-see movie for its witty and quirky take of a man vs himself theme in the African context, in the process painting a very positive picture of  modern Africa. Highly recommended!

This is a very fresh respite from the usual African movie fares that viewers have been accustomed in the past.  Director B. Nicube succeeded in showing a piece of real Africa that's non-apartheid, non-violent and not stricken with poverty. The comedic scenes were good-naturedly delivered and surprisingly, even Westerners warmed up to the jokes. This surprise hit of the year earned many awards such as the Best Narrative Feature Film at the Silicon Valley African Film Festival in San Francisco,USA and Best International Feature Film at the Bronzelens Film Festival in Atlanta, USA.
