Nollywood filmmaker and actress, Dayo Amusa has released her new movie, Pathetic.
Speaking on the movie Amusa says ‘Pathetic portrays in a subtle and fascinating way, the mischievous ways the celebrities are explored by the media, the outsiders and pathetically, their most trusted loved ones, who regard them as preys to be feasted upon at their slightest means.’
Also speaking on the movie, Bimbo Akintola noted that Pathetic is a story that is not restricted to celebrities alone but to the average person in the society.
She said, ‘It happens to women, period. It can be because of your riches, it can be because of anything else but the man behaved the way did not because she was a celebrity but because he had issues with himself that he needed to deal with. A man that beats a woman has issues, A man that can kill obviously has issues.
‘So, it doesn’t matter if she was a celebrity or not, his instinct would have still come out and would have shown. He would have beaten any woman that he married because that is the sort of person that he is.
‘The Pathetic story is a reality of everyone. It’s not just being a celebrity but her being a celebrity didn’t make it easy on the marriage in that sense. The way you can look at it from a celebrity standpoint is because everybody knows you because of your profession.
‘Doctors are not known because of their medium but the medium for our work is television and television is something everyone has in their homes. So, because of that, we are known and things that happen to us get more attention than what happens to normal people,’ Akintola reiterated.
The movie stars Bimbo Akintola, Wole Ojo, Dayo Amusa, Toyin Abraham, Funsho Adeolu, Toyin Alausa, Taiwo Okunlola, Anu Shodanya amongst others.
It is directed by Ike Nnaebue while Dayo Amusa is the executive producer.
The movie is based on Rita Shonibare, a renowned TV star, who is caught in a web of confusion as she makes a compromise on her budding career so as to overcome her marital ordeals resulting from her wayward and inconsiderate husband, who explores her status to his own devious means.
