Sista Sista is one movie that leaves you scratching your head wondering how can a sister love her sister so much she has to date her fiancé?
The storyline is about two orphan sisters, Catherine (Labake Labake) and Ranti (Belinda Effah), living as average Nigerian immigrants in the United Kingdom.
The movie is produced by Labake Labake and Hiretinbe Productions and directed by Toyin Moore, while the script was written by Goretti Egbu.
Catherine, who happens to be the eldest takes it upon herself to ensure Ranti does not lack anything ever since their parent died, which forced them to live in a foster home.
Then as adults, they share same apartment with Catherine playing the mother role in the house as usual. She turns down every opportunity of a better life that could take her away from her younger sister.
The director performed a wonderful job in ensuring that the movie excessively displayed the strong bond without any doubt in the mind of audience.
Fate smiles at them when suddenly the sisters come into money through inheritance.
Their wealthy grandfather (Jide Kosoko), who disowned their mother because she eloped with their dad, wills a larger percentage of his assets to them.
The story is so touching as you may drop a tear or two depending on what your heart is made of; especially the part where the sisters have to a leave where they had known all their lives as home after the demise of their parents.
One would expect a life full of fun and happiness with the newly acquired wealth but it turns out to be a curse as it threatens to tear the fabric of bond that exists between them through a heart robber, who vows not only to steal their hearts but wealth too.
The storyline is suspense filled and emotional, while the production is also good.
However, there are some jumped scenes that left Nollytrailers lost. One, the director cast the young sisters speaking in Queens English but not so as adult.
Another moment came when the lover boy came into their lives as fraudster. The movie failed to show us how Steve (Enyinna Nwigwe) got to know about the new billionaire sisters and neither did we really see any changes in the lives of the sisters after becoming rich.
I would have expected that few scenes would be dedicated to the sisters probably going on shopping spree especially Ranti who is socially active.
I’m a kind of person that news about death doesn’t move to tears but watching Sista Sista did.
