Johannesburg - Ticking every box for escapist romantic fantasy is the new South African romcom Mrs Right Guy, which opens on 29 April.
The film stars Dineo Moeketsi as the lovelorn Gugu Hlatshwayo who, downhearted and disappointed by love, has learnt to reject men long before they can get too close to her.
Gugu has grown up with the curse of being the ‘It Girl’, the most beautiful and wanted by everyone. She is the kind of woman who walks out of her yard and is beset by guys asking her out, and trying to ‘mack’ or flirt with her. Being raised by Gog’ Agnes has saved her, with the older woman warning her off boys and their slick ways. She eluded all of them. That is, until she met Sipho Motshegwa, who showed her that her grandmother was right, when he wooed her, won her, married her, bonked her, and left penniless on an island paradise.
Raising laughs as well as hope for those who have been wounded by love, the film follows Gugu as fate introduces her to two eligible young men – serial seducer Dumile (Thapelo Mokoena) and regular good guy Joe (Lehasa Moloi). One is a sure-fire way to heartbreak, and the other a guaranteed ticket to true love and happiness
The film is directed by Nigerian-born filmmaker Adze Ugah.
