Ojukokoro is a movie about a petrol station manager who decides to rob his place of work. However, unknown to him, other people have the same idea as well and the day turns out to be an unforgettable experience for all parties involved..
Front the beginning of the story, Dare Olaitan sets you up for an entertaining experience and the movie didn’t fall short of doing as promised.
It grips you, keeps you entertained and makes you not only want to find out what happens next, but also how it ends.
The cast – Shawn Faqua, Wale Ojo, Tope Tedela, Charles Etubiebi, Seun Ajayi, Zainab Balogun, etc., was small but outstanding, and the decision to not have many cast members actually became one of the biggest strengths of this movie, as it meant that everyone involved had a rich backstory along with enough scenes to make you stay invested in their journey as the movie progressed.
Honestly, it’s always a treat when filmmakers are able to make a very simple story with a low budget (and I mean this as a compliment,) into a movie as grand and rich as some of the top movies out there.
The one issue I had with the movie was the pacing, especially at the beginning. It started off slow, then hit the right spot before going back slow and then finally taking off fully to give you the full delightful experience you crave.
Other than that, Dare Olaitan did a madness with this movie and if you ask me if Ojukokoro is worth watching, I say a big, resounding YES!
