For about three decades, cinemagoers, especially in the northern parts of Nigeria, are familiar with Hausa Film Industry popularly known as Kannywood. Though there has been debate on a different genre of movies by section of producers and directors that say 70% of Kannywood filmmakers go for romantic melodrama and musical extravaganza while the rest of the percentage has comedy, action and epic storyline. Be it as it may, the giant industry lacks fantasy movies in its library.
Falalu A Dorayi, undoubtedly one of the few directors who believe in game-changing and twisting story background to please his followers and fans, who established himself as a successful filmmaker in the history of Kannywood, has finally come with a sensational fantasy flick entitled Karamin Sani.
Karamin Sani, an upcoming movie set to hit screens on Friday, 17 January 2020, in Filmhouse Cinema Kano and KFA Cinemas Kaduna simultaneously, was produced by S & B Production and directed by the versatile Falalu A. Dorayi. The director has, indeed, brought up something like never before. The makers have shown the intentions of giving a content which is different from “I love you, you love me-alike” romantic angle.
The industry is always attached with out-of-current issues and an innovative storyline that will crave the minds of cinemagoers, but surely, Karamin Sani will open yet another door of hitting fantasies in this technological era.
The movie has, unlike science fiction films that base their content upon some degree of scientific truth, portrayed some likely realistic events that will take the audience to the world of entertainment. In its mythological or legendary nature, it transcends the bounds of human possibility and physical laws that may change one’s destiny.
The trailer might have depicted the context of the imagination, dreams, or hallucinations of the characterisation within the projected vision of the storyteller, but it keeps people realistic and agog to watch the full movie.
Karamin Sani movie trailer has shown an element of magic, myth, wonder, escapism, and so much an extraordinary representation of fantasy culture. The movie contains odd phenomena, physical anomaly, and incredible characters with fabulous and entertaining subjects. The characters will be inspired or taken, however remotely, from myth or legend. They fill us with a marvellous sense of awe.
Director/Producer, Falalu A. Dorayi believes that the film has less to do with technology than topicality. Dorayi, who recently directed Wakili, a critically acclaimed comical-drama, always thinks against the background of Kannywood. He believes that social traumas often find their most potent outlet in the world of fantasies.
“There is a pressure-valve factor in the fantasy genres. It serves as a way to both face deeper issues and/or escape from them. But I think that the fantasy films made in a particular time are either a distorted or a faithful image of the time they were created in. They are a mirror to reality, even if you’re trying to escape it,” he was quoted.
Now the trailer is out, the public has digested it mostly in positivity, but I am sure, looking back at Dorayi’s career as a director, producer and actor, Kannywood fans will enjoy this epic – Karamin Sani.
