Fari gets music scholarship after heartbreak

“SEASON FINALE! Thank you, Team Janesis”. Ends a long running telenovela. This is the 29th Episode of a rich display of talent which we highly recommend for upscaling for better showcase.

Fari maintains her lead in role play making the acts close to reality.

While it was not immediately clear why the abrupt end, viewers must be waiting for a return. It is true that these are some of the best cast members: Jane, Sammy and Fari.  Among them, we give Fari the gold medal.

Even though Sammy is the author and Jane the lead actress, there are scenes that they fall short.  But throughout the 29 rolls of camera, Fari does her best in the characters she portrays.

We take issue with the producer. It is a disservice to hand Jane a villain role when most if not all the past roles she has come off as nice, romantic and sweet girl.

She is consoled by Andrew, Fari and Sammy when her mother is taken hostage, when she is reduced to a maid and as she recounts what she can remember of her mother’s death.

Lazy portrayal of crime scenes

Jane’s mother’s death is a mystery. But inside it was a lazy portrayal of crime scenes. Though it is make-believe, it is unconvincing to viewers who have watched reality such as TV news and better edited crime documentaries and movies.

The showcasing of Jane with a toy gun and spotting black regalia doesn’t make the scene lethal. She doesn’t fire any shot. Even if it was not real, it would have served the purpose.  She is too nice in a kidnapping scene. Criminals are bad people. No slap, no roughing up of Mr Ofula.

This scene is unconvincing.

To make matters worse, the police officer at the scene looks like part of the family waiting for prompts from director on whom to arrest and leave behind.

Back to Fari. She is the best. The audience can feel that her betrayal was unwarranted. The guilt in Sammy’s eyes is palpable and wiping tears on Fari’s cheeks marries the act to the real heartbreak as happens in normal settings.

The extended edition serves as a reminder to film and production practitioners that more needs to be done to give our actors pay. We hope a TV manager will pick this show and give SK Entertainment a platform to showcase their best. See you in the next episode. Don’t keep us waiting for so long.
