Kannywood, a giant films industry in the Northern Nigerian, has since embraced the trend of showing their movies in the Cinema due to the debacle of copyright infringement and piracy. Many movies have recorded success while others failed to make it at Kannywood Box Office at popular Filmhouse Cinema situated in Kano.
Up recent, Maishadda Global Resources released much-talked-about movie of the year 2019 Hauwa Kulu which believe to be one of the few movies that receives positive review from all corners and fans already agog to watch it.
It was released on Sunday, 11 August. Reports indicated that over 2,000 have watched the movie in just two days. Not only to watch, but people have also expressed excitement for what the describe as best movie they watch in recent time.
Director Ishaq Sidi Ishaq while expressing his views said, “This is the best Hausa film i watched recently. From Cinema-Goers beginning to the end of Hauwa Kulu, anybody could proud he belongs to the industry.”
Director Aminu S Bono was over joyous after seen the movie. He said, “All Kannywood producers should emulate the makers of Hauwa Kulu in making movies that talks about social issue.
Hauwa Kulu portrays the survivor’s staunch stand to achieve what she believes as her dream – education. Her father and boyfriend stand by her and do everything possible to take action against the abuser. In the movie, there are important indicators of how a family can and should support a survivor, to help them find the strength to move on.
The film’s direct approach to several aspects of child sexual abuse is, in many ways, unprecedented in mainstream Kannywood cinema. From the difficulties children may face in articulating the abuse they have experienced, being barred from accessing the language of sex, sexuality, and violence that would allow them to express it.
Hauwa Kulu demonstrates the power of being able to say “No” to abuse and unwanted advances, and the sheer courage it takes. Not only does it show how the effects of such abuse can persist lifelong, it also addresses the fact that often, sexual abuse occurs at the hands of close family members or acquaintances.
Indeed, the movie demonstrates that Sexual Abuse of children is a serious, difficult to tackle problem, and an attempt to draw attention to it in a sensitive manner in a medium that can reach millions is more than welcome – it’s necessary.
