Nollywood

The Nigerian film industry is the third largest in the world after Hollywood and Bollywood! Ironically there are very few cinema houses, most people watch pirated movies which are available cheaply everywhere! In fact today I was watching the animation "Hunchback of Notre Dam"...which was part of a DVD set which had 38 movies on a single DVD...and for only 300 Naira [100 rupees] and the DVD didnt stop in the middle, the sound quality was great! [Parul, KP Video could surely learn their secret!]

In fact you can pretty much bye DVD sets of all the hit sitcoms, I saw Ally Macbeal, Friends, Grey's Anatomy etc etc...this is the VSO affordable style of weekend entertainment! I am surely going to buy you know what!!

I am actually getting addicted to watching Nigerian films as well! They remind so much of Indian films and the saas-bahu dramas! There is suspense, love, revenge, mystery, you name it! One reason why the movies sell so cheap is because of the low cost of production! You can make a movie with a videocamm in a natural setting and you have a movie!
