FOR Uti Nwachukwu, every moment spent on locations where the soon-to-be released movie, Breathless, was shot, was enjoyable.
According to the Big Brother Africa winner and Jara co-anchor, he chose to feature in the movie because of its remarkable storyline and the brains behind it.
Breathless, which has the potential of a blockbuster, has already earned nominations at two prestigious movie awards. Through Mike Ezuruonye’s role, the film got a nomination for Best Actor Drama (TV/Series) at the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA), while Nwachukwu was nominated for the Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) for Best Actor in a Supporting Role.
“I like to keep a reputation that when people see me in a movie, they will just have an instant feeling that it’s worth it. So, I am very selective to give my fans the best. From the first day I saw the scripts, I fell in love with it. I love scripts that are not conventional; Breathless is in that class,” Uwachukwu said.
Breathless, which also stars Bimbo Manuel, Mike Ezuruonye, Brycee Bassey, Bobby Michaels and John Njamah, tells a story of the murder of an asthmatic lady in the beach house of her boss. The incident sets off a series of events, which blow the lid off dark and well-hidden secrets of the Okpodus, his two feuding sons and their link to the murder victim. The movie climaxes when it exposes the messy secrets.
