If there was ever a role tailor-made for Bolanle Ninalowo, playing a notorious area boy in "Picture Perfect" just might be it.
There is something enticing about the trailer for Biodun Stephen's new movie "Picture Perfect," and it has nothing to do with its genre or its connection to the 2015 critically acclaimed movie "The Visit."
It has everything to do with Bolanle Ninalowo, a Nollywood actor who made his debut in 2010, took a break in the same year, and returned to the industry in 2014.

For years, fans have watched Ninalowo in productions like "Husbands of Lagos," "The Guardian," "Walking Away," "Baby Shower" among others. But, for the first time, Ninalowo seems to be interpreting a character he finds enjoyable.
He is different, he appears as an actor, and is simply in his element as an entertainer. If there was ever a role tailor-made for the actor, playing a notorious area boy in "Picture Perfect" just might be it.
The Ninalowo viewers are used to is gone. The 'fine boy' with an accent and the actor who appears to be conscious and in love with his looks in most films is gone.
Ninalowo as a notorious area boy is the role most of his fans have been waiting for. A role that is unique enough to attract viewers just by a glimpse in a trailer.
The upcoming movie tells the story of a fashion designer who meets a notorious area boy when her car breaks down in his hood. What seems to be a distressing situation, turns out to be a blessing, only to go completely sideways when he sets up home beside her shop.
The movie stars the actor alongside talented actors including Mary Remmy Njoku, Bisola Aiyeola, Ronke Oshodi-Oke among others.
The producers have described "Picture Perfect" as a beautiful blend of comedy, reality and a jot of romance, but a preferable description would be "a comedy movie that reveals a different Bolanle Ninalowo."
