Broken Promises 4 all set to hit the big screen next year
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.”
