"Ojukokoro" screened for the first time in Nigeria at the 2016 Africa International Film Festival.

On Friday, March 17, 2017, the comedy/heist thriller will premiere in cinemas nationwide.

From its smart and witty dialogue to its perfect ensemble, Pulse Movies has put together five reasons to watch the movie.

1. Mix of Violence and Comedy

It's not everyday that you see a movie that perfectly mixes violence with comedy.

Successfully, "Ojukokoro" captures the brutality that comes with violence, and still finds a way to play it simultaneously with funny scenarios and witty conversations.

2. The Dialogue

This is a movie that is full of clever dialogues and witty lines that are insanely funny and enjoyable.

You would leave the cinema with at least one memorable slang/line.

3. The Cast

"Ojukokoro" comes with an ensemble that works so good that it’s almost impossible to single out individual outstanding performances.

All the characters in the movie inadvertently merge together to give viewers a clear understanding of their different characters. 

There is no irrelevant character in the movie.

4. Use of Language

The use of indigenous languages and pidgin has never been as beautiful as in "Ojukokoro."

From fluent English to Pidgin, Igbo, Hausa to Yoruba, the fusion of languages in the movie contribute to the entertainment.

5. It is Different

There is something obviously different but familiar about "Ojukokoro."

It is obvious that Guy Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino play powerful roles in the shaping of Olaitan's style of storytelling; a style that is different from the conventional style in Nigeria.

"Ojukokoro" opens in cinemas on Friday, March 15, 2017.
