Nollywood and the Kazakhstani film scene have teamed up for the first time to produce Adam BOL, an action-packed comedy promising laughter and cultural insights.
Directed by Nigerian filmmaker Cheta Chukwu and Kazakhstani filmmaker Almaz Alimzhanov, Adam BOL follows the escapades of three adventurous Kazakhstani men. Their journey to America takes an unexpected turn with an emergency landing in Nigeria, leading to a series of misadventures that challenge their beliefs and spark personal growth.
Set in vibrant Lagos, the film captures the essence of Nigerian and Kazakhstani cultures. As the protagonists navigate the chaotic streets of West Africa, they strive to find their way back to America.
The cast of Adam BOL features a diverse lineup, including Nigerian actors Chimezie Imo, Bisola Aiyeola, and Broda Shaggi alongside Kazakhstani stars Kuanysh Kudaibergen and Ryskul Konakbayev. Together, they bring to life a story celebrating cultural exchange and the universal language of comedy.
For Cheta Chukwu, known for hits like Payday and the acclaimed short film Deranged, Adam BOL represents a new chapter in her career, showcasing her talent for blending humor with thought-provoking themes.
Drawing parallels to Payday, Chukwu explores similar themes of unexpected circumstances and personal growth in Adam BOL. It promises to offer the audiences a fresh perspective on cross-cultural storytelling.
