‘Nneka the pretty serpent’ remake failed to impress viewers

Apparently, Play Network’s “Nneka the Pretty Serpent“, a remake of the 1992 Nollywood classic “Nneka the Pretty Serpent” is nothing to write home about!

The movie unveils Idia Aisien as Nneka (the lead role), Zack Orji, Bovi, Beverly Naya, Kenneth Okolie, Waje, Chioma Akpotha, Bimbo Ademoye, Shaffy Bello, Charles Inojie, Judith Audu, Beverly Osu, and Ndidi Obi to mention a few.

Nneka the Serpent was directed by Tosin Igho, produced by Chris Odeh with Ramsey Nouah and Charles Okapeleke as the co-producers.

Sadly, after the explosive hype & all the excitement promised; 2020’s ‘Nneka The Pretty Serpent’ turns out to be a proper case of “Money Miss Road”. Because there’s no doubt a lot of money was spent making this film. Unfortunately all that money was escorted by zero film-making talent, a weak story, a tattered script & kindergarten-like story telling.

According to Cinema Pointer, seeing this movie, one can’t help but feel enormous sympathy for the actors. They tried their best. Most (including Bovi) acted their parts respectably well enough. But those behind the camera directing them, cutting the scenes & telling the story were obviously overwhelmed & utterly lacking in the competence necessary to successfully execute the intended vision & reignite the legend of Nneka The Pretty Serpent.

Little wonder that when the movie FINALLY ended, the chorus of hisses from the audience was deafening. And as the lights came on in the hall, someone shouted: “Owo jonó!” (Yoruba for “My money got burnt”) & everybody burst into laughter in full agreement, with several people echoing the same painful sentiments as we trooped out.
