Movie lovers are set to savour a spectacular story of love, betrayal and action- packed excitement as Cold Feet hits the cinemas, writes Olaoluwakitaan Babatunde
When a combined celebration of her birthday and their wedding anniversary leads the beautiful Omoye (played by award winning actress; Joselyn Dumas) and her loving husband Mayowa (played by Nollywood Superstar; Jim Iyke) an ex-army colonel, to a weekend getaway at a beautiful resort in Uyo, Nigeria, neither of them could have expected that their relationship would be rocked to its very foundations by ghosts from the past.
Things go pretty well, until Omoye bumps into a charming young man, Tare (played by fast rising Nollywood Actor; Enyinna Nwigwe), an ex-flame and love interest who also happened to have chosen the resort as the location where he would propose to his girlfriend, Teni (played by award winning Nollywood sweetheart; Beverly Naya.
From their surprise meeting, sparks from their previous, five-year-old encounter start to fly and old feelings are rekindled. Back in the picture, Tare’s presence reminds Omoye of the intense sexual connection they shared five years ago. Omoye is wading in murky waters; even as she struggles to ward off this shadow from her past.
Speaking on the theme of the movie, the CEO of Danki Dynasty Group, Darlington Anyiam-Osigwe explained that at a time when there was a huge silence and lack of real examples that address real life scenarios where matters of the heart are concerned, especially amongst young people, Danki Dynasty Group decided to team up with internationally acclaimed multiple award winning director – Moses Ewang, to deliver this masterpiece, shine the light on these issues, especially the associated landmines of emotions and feelings, and change the way they are perceived and addressed in the country.
