‘Disconnect’ is a star studded romantic comedy starring Brenda Wairimu and Nick Mutuma alongside Brian Ogola, Pascal Tokodi, Catherine Kamau, Patricia Kihoro, Pierra Makena, Bridget Shighadi, Arthur Sanya, Aseem Sharma, Justin Mirichii, Illya Frank and directed by Tosh Gitonga. The movie premiered this past Sunday at a sold out event and it was the closing film at the 2nd edition of the NBO Film Fest which was a huge success. There were long queues, a lively audience and a glamorous turnout, totally worth the wait!
‘Disconnect’ is hilarious and kinky in right amounts, one that every young soul in the dating scene can relate to. It’s a film set around Seline, a young woman in an urban setting facing challenges in her situationships. She’s in open relationships, trying to juggle work and life. Her squad is made up of TK, the crazy one; Robin, her sister; Judy, the prayer warrior and Preeti the fun one.
These girls are fun, great gossips and Seline’s advisors. Seline’s best friend, Josh also has his squad. Otis, the insane, blunt and funny one; Khalid, the uptight and moral one and Nicholas is the typical married one. The film takes us through the struggles, emotional confusion, friendly support, drunk nights and gossip that we all live through in our daily lives. Seline and Josh are into each other but it takes them a long while to confront their emotions towards each other amidst their dating sprees.
Not forgetting Neema, Josh’s crazy girlfriend who buys her own engagement ring and proposes to herself. Too much drama and seduction, very great location picks and the soundtracks are all Kenyan with lots of Fena Gitu, Le Band and Sauti Sol rocking your ears throughout! Best believe that every character will remind you of someone. Come expecting laughter and realness and bring along your spouse, girls or boys. You can’t be watching this alone!
The cast and crew gave their all. It will soon be on KOKO Prime TV and this movie will definitely be worth your time and money. It’s one that will make you feel very proud to be Kenyan! Oh and another last thing; parental guidance is highly advised.
