(122): Karamin Sani Movie: A Kannywood Fantasy Like No Other

For about three decades, cinemagoers, especially in the northern parts of Nigeria, are familiar with Hausa Film Industry popularly known as Kannywood. Though there has been debate on a different genre of movies by section of producers and directors that say 70% of Kannywood filmmakers go for romantic melodrama and musical extravaganza while the rest of the percentage has comedy, action and epic storyline. Be it as it may, the giant industry lacks fantasy movies in its library.

Falalu A Dorayi, undoubtedly one of the few directors who believe in game-changing and twisting story background to please his followers and fans, who established himself as a successful filmmaker in the history of Kannywood has finally come with a sensational fantasy flick entitled Karamin Sani.

Karamin Sani, an upcoming movie set to hit screens on Friday, 17 January 2020, in Filmhouse Cinema Kano and KFA Cinemas Kaduna simultaneously, was produced by S & B Production and directed by the versatile Falalu A. Dorayi. The director has, indeed, brought up something like never before. The makers have shown the intentions of giving a content which is different from “I love you, you love me-alike” romantic angle.

The industry is always attached with out-of-current issues and an innovative storyline that will crave the minds of cinemagoers, but surely, Karamin Sani will open yet another door of hitting fantasies in this technological era.

The movie has, unlike science fiction films that base their content upon some degree of scientific truth, portrayed some likely realistic events that will take the audience to the world of entertainment. In its mythological or legendary nature, it transcends the bounds of human possibility and physical laws that may change one’s destiny.

The trailer might have depicted the context of the imagination, dreams, or hallucinations of the characterisation within the projected vision of the storyteller, but it keeps people realistic and agog to watch the full movie.

Karamin Sani movie trailer has shown an element of magic, myth, wonder, escapism, and so much an extraordinary representation of fantasy culture. The movie contains odd phenomena, physical anomaly, and incredible characters with fabulous and entertaining subjects. The characters will be inspired or taken, however remotely, from myth or legend. They fill us with a marvellous sense of awe.
Director/Producer, Falalu A. Dorayi believes that the film has less to do with technology than topicality. Dorayi, who recently directed Wakili, a critically acclaimed comical-drama, always thinks against the background of Kannywood. He believes that social traumas often find their most potent outlet in the world of fantasies.

“There is a pressure-valve factor in the fantasy genres. It serves as a way to both face deeper issues and/or escape from them. But I think that the fantasy films made in a particular time are either a distorted or a faithful image of the time they were created in. They are a mirror to reality, even if you’re trying to escape it,” he was quoted.

Now the trailer is out, the public has digested it mostly in positivity, but I am sure, looking back at Dorayi’s career as a director, producer and actor, Kannywood fans will enjoy this epic – Karamin Sani.

(143): On Connection Regrets: My Excruciating Experience

On Connection Regrets: My Excruciating Experience   By Muhsin Ibrahim Khadija, nicknamed Kashe-Kala, who I ‘re-nicknamed’ KKK, was one of my dearest classmates during our undergrad at Bayero University, Kano. Honestly, KKK, a sickle cell patient, was pretty, posh, and from a wealthy family. Hence that sobriquet. So, admittedly, I believed she was out of my league. However, we became so close. Despite our closeness, we disagreed pretty often. About a year after graduation, I met the lady I later married. The day I told KKK about my newfound love, she jokingly bragged that I chose this girlfriend because she’s her namesake: Khadija. On hearing this, some friends thought she loved me. It’s not true; our relationship was platonic. I had visited KKK’s house countless times. I barely missed seeing her at the hospital. Her relatives know me. I can’t forget the day I was riding my motorbike to their house when I stopped by the roadside to answer her call. From nowhere, someone snatched m

(113): Kwana Casa’in: A Short Review

Kwana Casa’in : A Short Review If posh locations, number of cast and crew members, sophisticated camera, etc. are enough indicators for the budget size of a production, then Kwana Casa’in [90 Days], produced by Arewa 24 channel, is doubtlessly an expensive soap opera. Directed by Salisu T. Balarabe, the drama is arguably the best of its kind in the Hausa language. Being funded by foreign, non-profit, non-political bodies, including the MacArthur Foundation, Kwana Casa’in stands out as a socio-political critique of our people and governments. It unmistakably aims to provoke reflection and introspection and to spark conversation and action within and outside the corridors of power. Is it able to achieve that? Set in a fictional town called Alfawa, the drama begins at the peak of governorship electioneering. The current governor, Bawa Maikada (acted by Sani Mu’azu), is highly corrupt and desperate to win re-election in spite of doing very little for the people. The health sec

From  Labarina ,  Alaqa , and  Manyan Mata  to  Fatake ,  Amaryar Tiktok  and  Gidan Sarauta , Kannywood’s audience has been captivated by numerous enthralling TV and web series. While the series market faces criticism for potentially fostering second-rate productions, the following list highlights the best seven series films aired in the year. Please note that the numbering is not hierarchical.  1. Labarina Labarina  stands out as a household name among Hausa film enthusiasts. Despite premiering in 2020, this show’s latest seasons con
