Some of the characters here are familiar faces that I've seen in some other African films lately.  Even the actor who plays the convict Benson, seems to be a popular local actor during the '80s era. Primarily a crime film that involves action and fight scenes, it conveys the message that the good will always triumph over the bad. The bad men in this film may think they have an edge because of their weapons but in the end it's bravery, determination and the will to correct their wrongdoing that matters more.

It seems that African films during the '80s era is mostly on the action genre with topics usually about a group of friends pursued by crooks. A sequel to the crime film, Umgulukudu,  the acting performances of the actors are okay but not generally commendable. What makes the film unique was the fact that one of the supposed crooks, the convict Benson,  sides with the lead characters of this movie to defeat the bad guys causing all the trouble.

  • The story may be quite ordinary but the surprise twist makes this film different from the others.
