A small, distinguishable film with its heart at the right place.
2 April 2018 | by CobertNeedeSee all my reviews

Sudani From Nigeria 's titular character has already become a media sensation and for the right reasons. Sudani from Nigeria has produced a small and joyful movie where the actors and crew have given their lot.

A convincing array of themes, along with the idea of not compensating scenes for a female character along the lead , make Sudani a great watch.

Sudani's major success primarily lies in the film's power to touch the viewers emotionally. The female characters take the spotlight in this matter along with a stand out performance from Soubin Shahir. The thinly written characters that hangs out with Soubin makes this film feel like a closed affair. But then again, not many scenes are compensated for that. The slow development and a beautifully shot football sequences make Sudani a must, must watch for football fans.

In short, Sudani From Nigeria has all the factors for a major hit. With the right amount of marketing and reach, Sudani's cast and crew deserves a warm and exciting applauds.
