STRICTLY ADULTS ONLY

Romantic fling with cleaner lands doctor in hot soup!

Trapped is a hilarious audience-pleasing fast-paced comedy. Its physical over-the-top makes our last show Dangerous Affairs seem like a prayer meeting by comparison. The comedy is starring Kenya’s superstars directed by Mbeki Mwalimu. The setting of Trapped is a medical hospital. A doctor (Nick Ndeda) is practicing the lecture he will deliver to an assembly of fellow gynaecologists in less than an hour. The speech’s success is vital to his career.

Interruptions abound. First it’s various other medical staff rehearsing their quartet dance routines for the Sakata Dance Competition (i.e. the cheeky Nigerian doctor played by Maina Olwenya; tough talking matron played by Yvonne Carter; the temptress – sexy and alluring nurse played by Lulu Wilson and the new intern doctor played by Henry Gitau Ngogoyo). Then a long-ago ex (Wangari Gioche), who was once a cleaner at the hospital, brings the news that she gave birth 16 years earlier to the doctor’s daughter (Janet Kirina) and that the daughter is in the hospital in search of Dad! Yes, there is his harsh wife (Rosemary Waweru), and she knows
nothing of the past liaison!

And in the spiraling chaos of deceit, false identity and manic cover-up that ensues, the mission is to avoid the daughter, pacify the ex, keep the chief specialist and hospital deputy director (Derrick Amunga) at bay and fend off various distractions, among them a patient from deep in the village excited by the goings-on (Johnson Chege) and an inquisitive police officer.

News: House of Lungula to be available on BUNI.TV on pay-per-view from May 4 2014

House of Lungula
HOUSE OF LUNGULA, will be exclusively available at www.buni.tv/lungula from May 4, 2014.

HOUSE OF LUNGULA caused a stir when it was released in cinemas last February to packed audiences in Nairobi and Mombasa. The local blockbuster, which stars Ian Mbugua, Lizz Njagah, Gerald Langiri and Sarah Hassan and is directed by Alexandros Konstantaras, is a sexy, laugh-out-loud comedy in the vein of big Hollywood hits like THE HANGOVER or AMERICAN PIE – and a first of its kind in Kenya.

But the limited theater run and great word-of-mouth left a lot more Kenyans – especially in the diaspora – eager to see the movie. From May 4, viewers worldwide will finally be able to satisfy their curiosity!

With HOUSE OF LUNGULA, Buni.tv will be piloting a pay-per-view option for new movie releases, in addition to its usual subscription model. For 150ksh ($3.99 for the diaspora), users will be able to rent the film and watch it at their convenience during a 3-day period, and without having to subscribe to Buni.tv’s monthly premium service Buni+. After the initial exclusive release period of a couple weeks, the film will become available to Buni+ subscribers at no extra cost to them.

“We have been overwhelmed by the amount of people outside Kenya requesting to watch HOUSE OF LUNGULA,” said director Alex Konstantaras. “Buni.tv created the avenue that we were looking for in order to reach those people around the world.”

SYNOPSIS
A 45 year old civil servant lives a reclusive, quiet life-everything planned to a ‘T’. The tranquil ambience is shattered by the sudden arrival of a complete stranger- a teenage girl who is pregnant and apparently ‘homeless’.
The generational gap is quite a challenge as he attempts to understand this wayward, hype teenager.
