iNumber Number, the story of Chili Ncgobo (S’Dumo Mtshali), a member of the South African police. He is honest and hard working, but falls foul of corrupt superiors at his station. Chili, persuaded by his partner, infiltrates a gang perpetrating cash-in-transit heists, but they decide to keep the money once the heist is complete.
iNumber Number is in isiZulu, with English subtitles, with a well crafted story, characters that are well cast, and great cinematography. Even for those who do not speak isiZulu, it is not hard to follow the on screen conversations, including the smattering of humour.
iNumber Number is another of those ‘must see’ South African films, boosting our local industry on the world stage. There are enough plot twists to keep audiences guessing, enough action to thrill viewers, and some clever characterisation. A stark look into the criminal activities of every day life in South Africa, and the message of hope, that not everyone is so inclined.
iNumber Number opens 25 April 2014 on South African screens, and is sure to attract local and international audiences alike.
