In I am Nazzy, a sassy village girl who works as a supermarket attendant had her life switched with her rich and famous doppelganger. Of course, what could go wrong when a rich girl suddenly wakes up poor just for the thrill of it and in her place, a poor girl wakes up in luxury with maids serving her breakfast in bed, and driver and paparazzi?
The plot of the movie is okay by Nollywood standards, the cast deliver lines that an avid watcher of Nollywood movies would find funny. Nothing out of the box about the movie, it gets at the very best a movie rating of 4/10 even by Nollywood standards.
The story line should have been more captivating, but the script is just average with too many cliches. The friend and the driver figured out they were staring at a doppelganger at first glance but the mother couldn’t? She couldn’t recognize her own daughter despite that she was speaking in a completely different accent and looked different. Then there’s the appearance by IK Ognonna that feels more like a cameo. Unless you’re really into Nollywood movies, you might be disappointed by this movie.
I am Nazzy was first released to cinemas on April 1 and boast of Nollywood stars including Jidekene Achufusi, Jimmy Odukoya, Denrele Edun, IK Ogbonna, and Ada Jesus among others.
