It does not matter whether romantic comedies are your cup of tea or not. Plan B is worth checking out. You will absolutely get all the feels with this movie and it will have you smiling or even a little beat teary once you’re done.
The 60 minute movie which was shot in Nairobi, is a typical love story starring Kenyan actresses Sarah Hassan as Lisa Waweru, Kate Kamau Karanja as Joyce and Nigerian actor Daniel Ettim as Dele.
Deemed as a Valentines day special by its Director Dolapo ‘Lowla Dee’ Adeleke and Producer Sarah Hassan, the movie revolves around Lisa who finds out she is pregnant a month after a drunken one night stand after being dumped by her boyfriend. She then confides in her friend Joyce who on finding out that Lisa’s one night stand is a rich Nigerian plots for a way to get Dele to pay child support as both are financially struggling.
Despite the initial hostility when Dele refuses responsibility and a few other hurdles along the way, he and Lisa find common ground but not without a plot twist. Kate’s humour as the crafty best friend is also fun to watch.
The movie also showcases Nairobi’s beautiful scenery and indie music scene boosting Kenya’s movie industry a notch higher through a high quality production. It continues to receive rave reviews with many asking for a sequel or a mini-series.
