Romance Is Overrated is a series of short films written and directed by newcomer Belinda Yanga-Agedah.

Each story has its own title but will be released to the general public under the name Romance is Overrated (RIO). This is because they all have the same underlying themes of doomed Love, betrayal and truth.

This unfolds in 3 chapters: Slow Fade, Romance is still Overrated and Two Colours of Rainbow.

SLOW FADE: Slow Fade canvases the life of soulful musician, Toke whose expressions, are brewed from the pain of a deep sense of regret premised on the loss of his great love Isis.

ROMANCE IS STILL OVERRATED: Romance is Still Overrated frames the life of KB; whose future is left to the tenets of fate as decided by his fiance Kike, after he makes an Anthrax coded confession on the arrival of Nicole.

TWO COLOURS OF RAINBOW: After a chance meeting by a mutual friend; two couples- the Manga’s and the Oliver’s are faced with series of events that test the commitment of their relationship and ultimately their marriages.

The short films were shot on Location in Lagos and Calabar and stars Bryan Okwara, Kiki Omeili, Keira Hewatch, Omowunmi Dada, Mofe Duncan, Omotu Bissong, Oyekunle Oluwaremi, Chiemele Azurunwa,  Judith Audu, Godwin Osakwe and Belinda Yanga.

    When Mediocres get Together and Act in a Foolish Scripted Movie, It is nothing but MAGICAL..
    Id rather watch paint dry on a wall.
    And this is why nollywood will forever remain at a standstill

      Mofe Duncan makes an effort, Bryan Okwara………….smh. If I end up watching any of it, it would be because of Keira Hewatch. Despite her efforts in Lekki wives, I’m not big on Kiki Omeili………..yet

    Se making pictures is the only other industry we have after oil and gas ni? Or is this because of unemployment. It looks as if all the returnees, especially the ones from the UK, have all suddenly turned to acting. Or is drama just in the blood of all Nigerians. Anyway, the actors are all fine, but I am not too sure about the plot. We shall see. Btw, the government might as well just develop the movie industry. I can see it creating employment, but can the industry make money-any concrete returns.
