You know that chill feeling and goosebumps you get after bingeing on a thrilling movie series, yes, that was what Blood sisters did to us. Blood sisters, a thrilling limited series of 4 episodes which dropped on Netflix today, May 5, 2022, was so damn good that it can almost not be faulted except for the way it ended but we forgive them.
Blood sisters was suspense-filled, unpredictable and told an excellent story in a very enjoyable experience. We dare say it is the sweetest Nollywood release so far. Twist upon twist, we literally had to pause at intervals to take in the different emotions and goosebumps it threw at us
We also loved that it had genuinely funny scenes and conversations that weren’t forced.
The four-part series was created by Temidayo Makanjuola and directed by Biyi Bandele and Kenneth Gyang.
Blood Sisters follows the lives of best friends, Sarah (Ini Dima-Okojie), and Kemi (Nancy Isime) who become fugitives after Sarah’s abusive fiancé, Kola (Deyemi Okanlawon) disappears mysteriously just before the wedding ceremony.
It features top movie stars including Ramsey Nouah, Kate Henshaw, Segun Arinze, Uche Jombo, Keppy Ekpeyong, Etim Effiong, Wale Ojo, Toke Makinwa, Ibrahim Suleiman and Nancy Isime, Ini Dima-Okojie, and Deyemi Okanlawon.
Some top actors like Zack Orji, Toyin Abraham, and Joke Silva also made cameo appearances.
As highly expected of Ebony Life Films, the production was great, with beautiful costumes, and very good actors; all the characters owned and embodied the roles including the breakout star, Genoveva Umeh who played Timeyin, Gurl was fire, especially in the last scene.
The blood sisters, Nancy Isime and Ini Dima-Okojie made it easy for the viewers to feel their bond, their pain and the few moments of joy they had; get ready to shed some tears if you are an emotional movie viewer like us.
And the supervillain we didn’t see coming, Kate Henshaw, words aren’t enough! Ps, we don’t know if it’s just us but it felt awkward having a mother kiss her son on the lips and she did it twice before the engagement ceremony.
Worthy of mention as well is the crazy duo, Kehinde Bankole and Gabriel Afolayan; at first, we felt their chemistry wasn’t it but as the story progressed, one couldn’t help but love them for their craziness.
What about Ramsey Nouah, the handsome and straight-faced Uncle B, who will draw you in with his facial expression, hitman bodyguard vibes and impeccable acting for the first few hours without a word.
In Blood Sisters, attention was paid to every detail, there was no drag or unnecessary scenes, and it wasn’t star-studded for nothing!
Mo Abudu truly outdid herself this time and has won us back after breaking our hearts with Chief Daddy 2 earlier this year.
From us at Kemi Filani, it’s a 10/10. You should binge on it this weekend if you haven’t seen it yet.
