Two of Silverbird Cinema halls were used for the premiere. Each of the halls screened the movie twice and on each occasion, the halls were fully packed.
“It is encouraging that movie fans came out in their numbers to see my movie. It is indication that Ghanaians still have interest in our local movies and we must improve the frontiers to heighten that attention,” director Frank Rajah said at the premiere.
“It is amazing,” CEO of Venus Film Production, Abdul Salam described it.
At about 6:00pm Friday evening, movie enthusiasts started trooping to Silverbird for the premiere event which had some of Ghana’s hottest actors passing through.
By 7:00pm when the movie was about to start, all two halls of the cinema were packed. At the same time an interesting number of movie fans were waiting outside of the halls for their turn.
Also patrons’ reaction to some of the scenes of the movie during the screening ceremony indicated that they loved the movie.
Present at the ceremony sponsored by Baileys were top actors Yvonne Nelson, Jackie Appiah and John Dumelo.
Among the cast were Chichi Neblett, Uche Iwuannyawu and Henry A. Asiedu as Adjetey Anang and Omar Sheriff Captan were conspicuously missing. Also present were Gloria Sarfo, Roselyn Ngissah, Kweku Elliot, Nollywood’s Bobby Obodo, David Oscar and a host of others.
‘Cheaters’ is described as the next romantic comedy to rock the movie scene.
It follows the stories of several young couples caught up in a web of love, lies and extramarital affairs. It throws more light on the assumption that marriage is the only war in which one sleeps with the enemy. If the couple is inseparable, it usually takes five people to separate it and ‘Cheaters’ reflects just that. In this film love is portrayed as a mysterious adventure that takes one through many twists and turns.
One adds a bit of infidelity to the mix and he or she has the perfect recipe for disaster.
