The pandemic increased the sales of the streaming platform and with diverse options. It is only logical that people would shift their focus towards streaming platforms. The South Indian film industry is known for creating blockbuster movies that all the other directors love to remake or dub in their regional language. With the amazing script and the genius camera movements, the South Indian film industry is always one step ahead of other industries in the country. It is no secret that for many years some of the South Indian movies have been winning all the national awards for the best film and actors. It is because of their dedication and respect towards their fields they make such incredible movies.
One such movie recently dubbed and released in the Telugu language is the movie Sudani from Nigeria. This 2018 sports drama film has gained a lot of attention from sports fans and other movie lovers. The story is about a guy named Majeed who does not get a good girl for marriage because he is not employed and does not have a stable job. But like most others, Majeed is also very interested in football and is also a member of their local football club. One fine day Majeed feels the need to recruit three international Nigerian professional footballers to win matches locally. After recruiting the footballers, their team does win a lot of matches and tournaments, but financially the team is unstable. Due to unfortunate circumstances, the star international footballer gets injured and needs to be hospitalized. Since they are not financially strong, Majeed agrees to take the footballer to his house.
In that house, Majeed lives with his mom, and sometimes, his stepfather visits them. Majeed does not like the stepfather and is very angry at his mom for marrying twice. Things take a turn for good when Majeed and the footballer get to know each other more personally. Majeed later realizes that the footballer’s parents passed away during the civil war, and he is survived by his grandmother and sisters. One day the footballer receives the news that his grandmother also passed away, and he urgently needs to fly back to his country to support his sisters. Things take a wrong turn when they realize that he doesn’t have the passport, and since he is a refugee, there are no chances of him getting a passport. From there on is the story of chaos and challenges that they both face and how they try to save themselves from legal matters. This movie was directed by Zakriay Mohammed and produced by Sameer Thahir and Shyju Khalid. It was released on 23 March 2018.
The glue that sticks the entire movie together is an excellent story and a brilliant direction. Director did a pretty good job convincing the audiences about the characters, and he placed the right emotions at the right time. The cast may not have big actors, but the cast has done a pretty marvellous job of telling the story more convincingly.
