Anikalupo 2022 Movie Review

Fresh of the success of his last project “A Naija Christmas” which premiered on Netflix last Christmas, Kunle Afolayan has wasted no time in getting back to business with his latest movie- Anikulapo. Kunle Afolayan’s Anikulapo Movie starts with the story of Anikulapo before he became a man that could resurrect from the dead.

Anikulapo was a simple craftsman who fell in love with the king’s wife. He was unsure what she wanted. But he was certain he loved her. However, Anikulapo Netflix Movie follows how the king found out about the affair and ordered the death of the simple craftsman. Upon his death, Anikulapo encountered a bird- Akala, in the other world who promised to give him another chance.

This particular chance involved him not dying again and having the power to resurrect. That was how Anikulapo got his power. “Anikulapo – he who has death in his pouch, tells the story of love, hate, deceit, jealousy, and covetousness, you’ll feel the intrigue, suspense, anger, and empathy.”

The unique mystical folklore drama “Anikulapo,” which was included in the Netflix multi-title agreement with Kunle Afolayan, centers on the life of Saro, a young enthusiastic man looking for better opportunities in the vast Oyo Kingdom.

But as things went on, he had an extramarital relationship with the king’s wife, Arolake, which resulted in his early death and a chance encounter with the fabled Akala, a bird thought to both give and steal life.

Anikulapo Netflix movie follows the story of a simple craftsman named Saro (Character played by Kunle Remi) who comes into a village through wandering but has the power of resurrection which has earned him the name “Anikulapo” which roughly translates to “He that holds death in his purse”.

Anikulapo movie sees Anikulapo faced with so many challenges because of his powers. He has to stand against the people that are waging against him. This was slightly expected because, by reason of his power, Anikulapo was very popular in the village he wandered into.

He would later fall in love with a young woman who is referred to as a “Man eater”. The question therefore arises if Anikulapo would be able to save himself despite his power.Anikulapo Netflix Movie has an ensemble cast of Kunle Remi, Sola Sobowale, Bimbo Ademoye, Aisha Lawal, Kareem Adepoju, Adebayo Salami, Faithia Balogun, Taiwo Hassan, Moji Olayiwola, Hakeem Kae-Kazim and Eyiyemi Afolayan.
