Ini Dima-Okojie and Ruslaan Mumtaz star in Namaste Wahala (which translates to “Hello Trouble”), a sweet cross-cultural romance about a Nigerian woman who falls in love with an Indian man.
The film is set in Lagos and follows Didi and Raj as they pursue a romanace their families don’t approve if. The movie hit Netflix’s top 10 over Valentine’s weekend, according to PureWow:
The problem(s)? Didi’s father doesn’t approve of their relationship and wants his daughter to marry his Nigerian employee. Raj’s mom has a similar opinion, claiming she’s appalled by her son’s decisions. Can they find common ground in a world full of differences? Or will their opinionated families cause irreversible damage?
Netflix has been expanding both its African and Indian offerings, and this is a fun way to dip in. Everyone in this is easy on the eyes, which never hurts!
