The production team achieved a fine work on set and it was beautiful to see a film told during pre-colonial times. Just wished the script was as robust as the production though-What an outstanding display of life back in the day! We truly relished the antique setting, festival, dances, cooking, people walking barefoot, fabric making, clay molding, etc. Hats off to the hair, make-up, and set design teams! The hard work paid off
-Anikulapo was, without a doubt, Kunle Remi's best performance so far. He genuinely impersonated the character Saro/Anikulapo by showing different facets: pain, pride, infatuation, and power.-We googled the meaning of 'Anikulapo' to find out that it means 'the one who has captured death and put it in his pouch, it conveys a sense of invincibility'. This title suited best Arolake as she 'died and resurrected' to a brand new life embracing strength and seizing critical opportunities to change her destiny. Any more details beyond this point will definitely lead to spoilers...🤐-The audio, the audio, sadly, sounded ADR-ish
-Anikulapo was a simple plot told in a simple way; there weren't any sizzling moments to glue us to our couch. We were more like spectators, not involved in the story but just observing Saro's journey. More gripping dialogues could have also made a difference.
