So In Love is a romantic comedy produced by Chichi Nworah, and directed by Ike Nnaebue. It stars Bryan Okwara, Belinda Effah, Adunni Adewale, Lilian Esoro, and Mary Lazarus. It premiered at the Silverbird Galleria, in Lagos.
In focus to get Kemi’s attention, Kelvin gives Mary and Rose a misdirection of his purpose and romantically gets involved with two friends, which leads to loyalty tested conflict between Mary and Rose.

Another “romantic comedy” from Nollywood? Most attempts at this genre in the last five years have been a hot mess. We miss the days of Nollywood where “Love and Romance” had some semblance of reality not the kind of thing we see these days. Think back to those days when Ramsey Nouah played loverboy alongside – Genevieve Nnaji; or Zack Orji &Hilda Dokubo or Stella Damasus and RMD.
Rather than improve, it appears Nollywood filmmakers struggle with the concept of romance. Now add that to the fact that the new actors barely come close to giving an interpretation to the roles they’re assigned talk less of delivering a decent performance.
Hopefully, Bryan Okwara’s face can hold your attention for a little over an hour. Watch it and tell us what you think.
