Veteran actor, Bimbo Manuel, has been linked in a deep secret with actors Mike Ezuruonye and Uti Nwachukwu in the movie, Breathless.
The trio gets neck-deep in an unresolved murder of Professor Okpodu’s mistress, with whom Nwachukwu and Ezuruonye had romantic links.
Fingers point in the direction of Ezuruonye and the matter is made worse when the sister to the mistress, Jenny, arrives from the sky to work for Prof Okpodu, in an attempt to blow the evil whirlwind open, and avenge her sister’s death.
She falls into a lust triangle, and becomes the trigger for an almighty feud between Nwachukwu and Ezuruonye.
The movie climaxes when it exposes minute-by-minute the messy secrets.
Ezuronye stars as Ben (Okpodu’s biological son), Bimbo Manuel (Professor Okpodu), Uti Nwachukwu as Priye (adopted son), Brycee Bassey (Jenny), Bobby Michaels (detective) and John Njamah as Kwame.
The film was directed by Charles Uwagbai, who had previously directed Okoro The Prince, Black Silhouette and Drive.
Uti Nwachukwu was on Sunday announced as nominee for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for 2016 Africa Movie Academy Award (AMAA) for Breathless, while Mike Ezuruonye was nominated for the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) as Best Actor in a Drama (TV/Series) also for his role in the movie.
