The film opens with a guy getting shot. A girl is standing in the background watching the scene go down and comes running to his rescue, Ghana

“Are you alright… Can you drive?”

The guy cannot move you dingbat, so how the hell is he going to be able to drive with two gaping holes in his chest? How do you even ask someone who has just been shot, “Are you alright?” Nonsense! After catching on that he may not be in the best of states, you know being shot and all, she calls over a taxi to take them to the hospital.

On arrival at the hospital the medical staff there refuse to attend to him as a gunshot victim, without a police report. She then rushes to the police station to get a report only to find that they will not issue a police report without seeing the victim leaving her in a catch 22 situation. Does this really happen? After much agitation and pleading he is seen to without the police report.

Beyonce is the President’s daughter. Wealthy and spoilt, anything she wants she gets. This includes Raj. Beyonce meets Raj whilst out shopping and approaches him in a forward manner, showering him with compliments and then paying his bill before handing over her phone number.

Raj and Ciara, the poor orphan the girl who saves him are estranged after the hospital incident, although there is not a moment that he is not thinking about her, wanting to find her and thank her for saving his life. He does eventually find her and they begin dating. Whilst Beyonce is falling in love with Raj (pronounced Rush by most in the film), he at the same time is declaring his love for Ciara and even goes so far as to break her virginity. He also announces his intention to marry her, all the while juggling the two women.

Why are the two main female characters named after black American pop stars?

The deceit comes to light one day when Raj comes home with Ciara (to introduce her to the family) and finds Beyonce sitting on the sofa with his mother and sisters. He sees unperturbed by this sight, and with his arm cosily around Ciara he introduces her to all in the room as his fiancée and Beyonce as “The lady who has been so kind to us.” Eiwoooooooooooo! The shock in Beyonce’s face, to be treated as she were some kindly philanthropist.

Beyonce in a rage takes Raj out for “a word.” Ciara steps outside shortly afterwards and hears the whole conversation. She now knows that Raj has been cheating on her and is highly distraught. In his defence he exclaims,

“I had to sleep with her. She came on too strong and I couldn’t resist.”

After being rejected by Raj Beyonce starts her mission to break up his relationship with Ciara by any means necessary.

*************SPOILERS AHEAD************** 

Beyonce employs some thugs to attack Raj and Beyonce. In this attack acid is poured all over Ciara’s face disfiguring her. Beyonce comes to the rescue by paying Raj’s hospital bills and sending Ciara abroad to get a face transplant on the condition that she fakes her death and starts a new life elsewhere. Beyonce threatens to kill her should she ever re-emerge and divulge the secret. She goes to the extent of taking Raj to Ciara’s tombstone.

The face transplant was reeee-deee-culous. Right after the transplant we see this new face, skin glowing not a scar to be seen! YEAH RIGHT! How are you gonna have such a major surgery and ya face look perfect? Ghanaian Movie Review

I would recommend this movie for the simple fact that I founf it HIGHLY entertaining! The film ends with Beyonce and Raj wedding and Marcy (the new face transplanted Ciara) hanging out if a taxi poised to shoot Beyonce. The ending was somewhat of a disappointment. It seemed rushed and a little strange that after all that happened Raj would marry Beyonce, or was it in fact a plan he concocted with Ciara so that they could finally be together? I guess you would have to watch part 3 and 4 to find out!

    The first time i watched it! I was like whaoooo!! But i watch it again last week, almost one year after, I saw so much mistakes!! lol!!!!

  2. I watched it in the beginning of my Nollywood infatuation so I loved the drama of it all but there were so many things happening that were nonsensical from beginning to end!

  3. filmstar says:

    The film is Greatttt
    Makes you think!!
    Go watch that!!

  4. Adwoa says:

    Movie is NONSENSE!!!!!!

    The movie has a continuation where Fritz Baffour plays as the president (Beyonce's father)

    There was a lot of nonsense investigation going on and one of the president's man gets killed and Raj get the blame for it.
    It was just too much! Raj ended up dieing by hanging and Ciara shots Beyonce for his death.
    Raj's last words was……….."My Mother Killed Me". with his mother sitting in front of the t.v caring her eys out and watches him die.
    No one find out that Beyonce was behind Ciara's murder attempt.

    It was written by Abdul Salam Mumuni so what do we expect?

    This movie started great and was quite inspirational. However, for a movie to hit the mark, there is dire need for the writer to tie all the knots, so that real life lessons are learnt and movie making is not just eye entertaining but life entertaining and helpful to people who watch.
    You know, a movie could be life changing and can help watchers make right decisions when faced by similar decisions.
    For instance, what was there to learn from the death of Raj and Beyounce. What became of Kiara ( not even a written note on what happened to her at the end). Who actually killed the psychologist( who was actually playing the role of a psychiatrist?
    What was the essence bring back Kiara, if she had no major role to play in convincing Raj that Beyounce was responsible for a her supposed death. Kiara was also supposed to be pregnant right, what actually happened?
    In conclusion, this movie would have been a great one, but for the inability of the writer to actually tie the knots.
    This could well be corrected in a well thought out part 5, where;
    1- Beyounce does not die after the shot from Kiara’s gun and later confesses her role in eliminating Kiara to get Raj for himself,then later request for an annulment of their marriage and travels to the state for good.
    2- Kiara is arrested and put in custody and later bailed out by the Doctor after being cleared by Doctor’s confession to police of Beyounce putting him under duress to kill Kiara and how he saved Kiara, not leaving out the fact that Kiara only reacted based on the fact that she was expecting a child for Raj and it was the 3rd attempt to end her life by Beyounce ( who ask killed her Sister).
    3- For Raj; a call comes in to the the main police officer at the execution site from an anonymous caller, claiming he knows who killed the psychologist/psychiatrist. Immediate order is given to support the suffocating Raj down from his noose. He is unconscious =, but regains consciousness later in the hospital. Raj is later visited by the father of Beyounce who reveals the truth that the death of Beyounce’s psychiatrist was from his political opponent who wanted to ruin his presidential electoral campaign through an inside spy who took advantage of his row with the psychiatrist to create more scandals around his family name by killing the psychiatrist and blaming it on Raj. The President confirms to Raj that Beyounce had confessed her crimes and had left to the States for good. The plot by his political opponent of course worked in his favor and he won a new 4 year term in office as President of the State of Ghana.
    4- Grand Finale==> Kiara gives birth to a baby boy ( a mirror copy of Ray) and Raj’s Mom and Sister and the President’s protege visits Kiara to sympathize with her and plead with her to accept Raj into her life once more. The President’s protege then brings out a special envelope from the President to express his sympathy for the terrible action of his spoilt daughter to Kiara and asking Kiara to henceforth consider him as her new father( given she is an orphan) .
    It ends with Raj coming in and before he falls to his knees to plead with Kiara, she holds him up and took his child from Raj’s Mom and handed him over to Raj crying tears of joy and they all embraced amidst smiles from others around and it ends…!!!!!!!!!
