Dara Ju doesn’t feel groundbreaking, but it feels lived-in and genuine.

The story ultimately frays apart by tugging at its flimsiest threads, but Onah hits on too many things with too much force for his debut to be dismissed as a result.

Hopefully this film will be successful and we’ll see a more solid sophomore film, but as a debut film Onah should be commended.

Film Threat

The large amount of plot poses two problems for the fledgling director, in that it’s hard to fit all the character and story development into the 90-minute runtime and, as the film progresses, he also finds it difficult to decide where his focus lies.

Despite all of Seyi’s shortcomings, Dara Ju kept me riveted because I recognized myself in him.

Overall Dara Ju still delivers on its promise of sharing a piece of the immigrant experience that needs to be told, but much like the film’s ambitious protagonist, it loses track of some of the details along the way.
