Fans were overjoyed when Netflix released a sequel to “Happiness is a Four-letter Word” in March.
When the movie was released in 2016, it was declared box office. Written by Busisiwe Ntintili and based on the novel of the same name by Nozizwe Cynthia Jele, fans fell in love with the journey of the female protagonist.
Zaza (Khanyi Mbau) has achieved his life goals as a trophy wife. Lawyer and perfectionist Mmabatho Montsho managed to get the job done while planning his next wedding. The owner of a trendy art gallery, Renate Stuurman, preferred to date when and when.
Of course, no matter how perfect their lives looked, it was nothing – especially when dealing with loneliness, unfaithfulness, and nosy family issues.
So what can fans expect from “Happiness Ever After”???
Well, Mbau and Sturman are back. Taban Moreya has regained control.
This time, Ayanda Harimana is tasked with telling a rethinking story about sisterhood and friendship, while staying true to the heart of the first film.
In a previous interview with Phil Mphela, the two actresses made fun of the next release.
Stuurman said: The pressure to move them five years ahead is on actors, producers, directors, crew, and everyone. This time, we’re doing our best to take the viewer to some new place. “
The fact that the sequel will be screened on the world’s leading streaming service has brought a smile to their faces by dramatically expanding the reach of the film.
Mbau described their excitement as “the moment of Master KG.”
She added: “The sequel lives independently of the book, but apparently some of the older characters are back, bringing drama and sizzle to the sequel.”
Richard Lucunk also replays his role as Leo.
Happiness forever There are also new and famous faces such as Nambitha Ben-Mazwi, Yonda Thomas, Daniel Effiong, Xolile Tshabalala, Nandi Nyembe and Loyiso MacDonald.
Creator Bongiwe Serane commented:
“Sequels are always difficult because of the much higher pressure, but it offers another exciting thing-and the opportunity to land a movie on a global service like Netflix is its own reward.
“I sincerely hope that this movie will resonate with the audience and that they will fall in love with their favorites and newcomers.”
Apart from identifiable issues, viewers can also enjoy the humor added to offset the drama.
