Nimbe the movie chronicles the life of Nimbe, a bright student from a troubled household and his struggles with drug abuse, crime and bullying.
The movie written by Ronke Gbede, directed by Tope Alake and starring Toyin Abraham, Odunlade Adekola, Kelechi Udegbe and Chimezie Imo as the titular character of Nimbe.
The film does not shy away from delving into a lot of deep and pertinent themes of drug use, rape, parental affection in ways that are not only relatable but also avoids being preachy.
Overall the acting did not dissapoint and as usual Odunlade Adekola’s acting was top-notch, Toyin Abraham brought exceptional acting to table with an accent that was quite believable and Kelechi Udegbe gave life to the role of Ak with so much subtlety.
However, the shining star was Chimezie Imo whose depth as an actor was a spectacle to behold in this movie, his interpretation of Nimbe was phenomenal, if you thought he did well as Shina in Shuga come watch him soar in this one.
This entire movie was an intense rollercoaster but an enjoyable one, every scene felt like you were living it. This story paid attention to little details that made the characters well rounded and multifaceted.
Nimbe the movie serves wholesome content and is not in the least bit a forgettable movie.
