Are you a fan of rib-tickling street comedy? If yes, this
one right here is for you!
First off, even though I couldn’t stand the
continuity errors in this movie and felt some scenes were absolutely unnecessary, I am
happy to inform you that the movie made me laugh. Yes, I laughed, and isn’t
that the whole essence of comedy?
Hold up! Shall I give you a synopsis of this movie? Written
and produced by Toyin Abraham, directed by Charles Uwagbai and Biodun Stephen,
The Ghost and The Tout follows the story of ‘Isila’, played by Toyin Abraham
who grew up in a ghetto and met with a ghost after an unfortunate incident. Soon
her life is thrown into a series of drama which only her can see and understand.
Like I noted earlier, this movie gets my thumbs up for
actually fulfilling the role of a comedy the way it should, but my thumbs are
down for so many technical errors which made my head ache. Why on earth were
we served so many unnecessary and boring scenes in the first few minutes of
this movie? My biggest issues with ‘The Ghost and The Tout’ are the continuity,
sound, and overacting which Toyin Abraham should guard against in her
It’s so hard to forgive the overacting from most of the characters. The directors were okay with this? Ah! The Dele
Odule and Chiwetalu Agu screaming scenes were beyond me! I just couldn’t deal.
