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.”
