    I watched ROTI yesterday and I was extremely disappointed. Your review is right and it is just not in your opinion, I guess in all opinions.. The movie had no conclusion and it might have had a good plot, but it was very poorly and shabbily executed with no headway.

    The film ended just when we thought it has started . Personally I give it a 1/5 rating.

    Now, I ain’t a spoilsport here, am just being frank.. If you doubt me, go see the movie yourself.

    Comrade Kunle should stop trying to do it all. I am sure he is good at business because he keeps making films when most filmmakers do not. But he is not growing and that is a sign. Why does he not work with other people who are good at writing good stories that won’t have plots with holes? And not act. And even not direct. What is this Naija obsession with having names in lights!

    See, i cant even take Delphinator serious. Her reviews are blank. Also, she comes across like someone who wants to break into the industry.

      I love her reviews. They are witty, fresh and real. And if you see Roti, you will probably agree that the script needed a lot of work and in my opinion Kunle should not have cast himself.

    From my experience about art generally, i realized that majority of people are only looking for entertainment but here is my conclusion as a lover of art: the moment you limit yourself to only the entertainment bit of any form of artwork, you’ve already lost a bulk of the whole picture. Roti, in my opinion, is a beautifully done movie. Personally, I will say that only a few filmmakers can do better with a theme that focuses on psychological breakdown. Also, people should stop expecting the ending of a movie to be in line with their thoughts; in order to fully enjoy a movie, you need to try, as much as possible, to immerse yourself in the perspective of the scriptwriter/filmmaker.

      I was there. I disagree. There are a lot of filmmakers around the world who make great psychological dramas. The problem with Roti is that the script needed more work and the director [bless his heart], did not understand the genre enough. Great idea but he needs to surround himself with good development executives who can help him grow! And the first step in that is being open to feedback.

    Film like other forms of art are subjectively created and experienced. However, I liked Roti and I believe it is a bold film that abandons the revisited and often explored style of storytelling that only focuses on superficial narratives and are so detached from the filmmaker’s personal beliefs and intellectual inclinations.

    Roti feels like a story that reflects the filmmaker’s deepest sensibilities and the boldness to make it amid the madness of widespread compromise is laudable. And I think the ending literally is one of the best I have seen on screen in a long time.
