FANS will be happy to learn that the fourth in­stal­ment of the lo­cally pro­duced movie, Bro­ken Prom­ises has just wrapped up and should hit the big screens early next year.

The film’s director and co-pro­ducer, Ku­maran Naidu, has been post­ing video clips from set and pho­to­graphs of his cast in and around Dur­ban.

Speak­ing about the film, Naidu said: “The movie con­tin­ues to fol­low the Padayachee fam­ily and shows Am­sugi’s ef­fect on so­ci­ety and her los­ing con­trol of her fam­ily due to new re­la­tion­ships be­ing formed.”

View­ers, he said, would also learn why Am­sugi’s grand­son, Man­doza, who was ab­sent from the pre­vi­ous movie, had dis­ap­peared.

“There will be lots of an­swers about his dis­ap­pear­ance as well as what hap­pened to his mother,” Naidu said.

When asked why he opted to con­tinue with the fran­chise, he said: “I was ac­tu­ally done with the fran­chise, but was con­stantly get­ting e-mails and calls from fans to make another one.

“In Jan­uary 2016, I fi­nally an­nounced that I would work on another film. How­ever, I was busy and never got a chance to but the ideas for the script was still there and so I started that again in Jan­uary.

“When do­ing Bro­ken Prom­ises 4, I was try­ing to ex­per­i­ment and wrote a com­pletely dif­fer­ent story, but af­ter dis­cus­sions with my cast, I re­alised that Bro­ken Prom­ises is all about the fun and changed the en­tire story to bring it back to the orig­i­nal.

“The movie is now solid and I think peo­ple will love it as they will re­late to al­most ev­ery­thing.”

He said his fans mo­ti­vated and in­spired him to give of his best.

“I plan on mak­ing Bro­ken Prom­ises up to part nine, so one film a year. I will also be mak­ing smaller films just for the fun of it.”

The movie fea­tures the orig­i­nal cast of Ko­gie Naidoo as Am­sugi, Neel Pillay as Reuben, and Rani Pillay as Bommi.

The new faces in­clude: Theshen Naicker (Man­doza), who has be­come a so­cial me­dia sen­sa­tion for his al­ter-ego char­ac­ter Aunty Sheila, Ka­jol Sew­gob­ind, Shanon Mis­cha Bho­jraj, Aaliyah Cha­boo and Zahra Dada. time I was 15 and the owner never knew. It was only on my 18th birth­day that he found out and he was pretty up­set. I started be­hind the bar and built my­self up to where I man­aged the club.”

Th­ese are some of the cast mem­bers on set with Ku­maran Naidu, fifth from left.

Adrian Naick, Eu­gene Naick, Sel­van Naick, Noel Patchapen and Ja­son Naidoo were among the guests who at­tended the open­ing of Dante’s Night Lounge in Spring­field Park.
