Movie Review: Knocking On Heaven’s Door : A Replica Of Blossom Chukwujekwu Real Life Story

This week we will be reviewing a blockbuster movie, 'Knocking on Heaven’s Door. ' Even its an old box office make, the major characters especially the person of Blossom Chukwujekwu real life could be xrayed in this story unexpectedly.

Kudos to her, the monologue scene and her slowing, becoming senile were lovely.

For the lead male role, Mr. Chukwujekwu who played her husband and manager was spotted on. Blossom did himself a service by taking this role. It does need some more work to be able to carry on with ease, especially if it’s not one’s nature but as a psychotic angry maniac, selfish and insecure character, he handled it well. In real life, maybe in Blossom's marriage, his wife would have depicted the image in this movie.

“Knocking on Heavens Door” provided nothing new under the sun, neither did it spark any empathy to the real situation that might be going on. However, it addresses the trending issue in the society, domestic violence
