As the Ugandan film industry continues to grow, so do the fans. 2018 has started in style for them with over five movies released in a gap of two months. Among those was “the forbidden” a movie written by Nakamya Marie Anita, directed by Kizito Samuel Savior and produced by Claire Nampala.

The 2hours movie was acted in both Luganda, English and even had subtitles for those who can’t comprehend the language or an accent.

The movie premiered yesterday night in an all red carpet affair and unlike other movies, it attracted quite a number of revelers who were equally dressed to the event.

Although the school scenes take longer than they should be, one must say they were worth watching with the humor created by the Nodryn Evanci as Rosette.

The lighting is enough that the night was night as night and day is day. The editor does a great part in editing all the unnecessary shadows and give the movie an almost HD picture.

Just like other movies, “The forbidden” too lacked enough sound editing as many echoes were still heard from the back especially where necessary. Most of the mistakes like repetitions from actors and unnecessary mistakes were left inside.

That entire aside, this movie has put Ugandan movie makers on a task of producing better quality and it’s suitable for all audiences.
