IT is not every time one hears talented Ghanaian actress, Nadia Buari praise a movie but the fair-skinned actress appraised her role in the new Nollywood flick, Heroes and Zeros and rated it as one of her best movies. Nadia who is the lead actress in the movie revealed that she was impressed by the directorial and production acumen of the movie’s director, Niji Akanni. Speaking on the movie, Nadia said,
“Heroes and Zeros is about the best movie I have done, it was a great experience to be on set with the likes of veterans of Nigerian movie industry like Olu Jacobs, Bimbo Manuel, Tina Mba, Akin Lewis and contemporaries like, Funsho Adeolu, Linda Ejiofor, Gabriel Afolayan, Jude Orhorha, Brigette Cherile. Everybody brought something to the table.
“One other high point of the movie is the unusual storyline of the movie; you can’t really say this is what will happen at the end of the movie, working with Niji Akanni further exposed me to another side of acting because I was really stretched on set’’ she said.
Earlier, Niji Akanni, the director of Heroes and Zeros had praised the dexterity of Nadia on set saying, “Nadia Buari is a top Ghollywood actress who has a number of awards to her kitty, she really worked off her socks on set” The movie which premiered in Ghana weeks ago was very impressive at the Ghanaian cinema and is expected to hit the Nigerian cinemas in the month of August with an elaborate premiere.
Heroes and Zeros is the story of destructive pursuance of Tonia (Nadia Buari) by Amos Fele (Bimbo Manuel). Ten years ago, Amos Fele was a wealthy celebrity director in the Nigerian film industry. Now he lives in a ramshackle flat, doing occasional low-paying TV commercials for nameless products. He’s a daily comic relief on the local soccer practice pitch: because though he’s already 45 years old, he nurses a new, insane dream of making it into the dollar-soaked world of international soccer! His joyless marriage to Tinuke (Tina Mba), a junior bank worker, is crumbling fast, especially after the death of their only child.
