‘Turn Me On’ Premieres Friday
Veteran actor Roger Quartey is set to outdoor his first ever produced movie, ‘Turn Me On’, from his Roger Q production on Friday at the Silver bird Cinema in Accra, with an anticipated huge premiering ceremony.
Last week Wednesday, the movie was screened for the media to have a first-hand-view at a press premiere ceremony which attracted a number of the movie’s cast and crew. Among them were majority of the cast including Yvonne Nelson, Jackie Appiah, Eddy Nartey, Omar De 1st, Benjamin Kwadey and Roslyn Ngissah. The rest includ Majid Michel, Fed Nuamah, Ken Fiati and others.
Friday’s main premiere is not only expected to be big but exciting as well. Movie enthusiasts are also expected to be there in their numbers. The movie is described as an ultimate game of wits with different themes. It explores love, greed, blackmail, hatred, betrayal, treasure and deceit but at the end, goodness rules.
‘Turn Me On’ is a story of Dr. Harry Buckman and his family. Dr. Harry is a successful businessman who, after sweating so hard to achieve a lot in life, died mysteriously, leaving his entire fortune to his three children – Tyler Buckman, a lawyer (John Dumelo), Kendall, a successful fashion designer (Jackie Appiah) and Woody, an musician and playboy (Ben Kwadey). Just when they are about sharing their late dad’s estate, his lawyer (Kofi Adjorlolo) breaks the news that the old man’s will reveal that there was one more beneficiary who needed to be around before the will can be read.
That person happened to be one of his daughters, Julia Buckman (Yvonne Nelson). Suddenly somebody pops up and claims to be Julia Buckman. Not long after, another Julia Buckman shows up. The suspense and intrigue then set in as the lawyer and his team try to find the true identity of Julia. Subsequently, it turned out that one of the Buckmans is behind the scheming and other atrocities. The same person was the one who took their father’s life.
Who is that person? Is it Kendall, Tyler, Woody or even Julia? This is what move fans will be seeing for themselves on Friday. Directed by Frank Rajah and costume by Omar De 1st, the movie’s storyline is getting some criticism as critics are saying it has a clear resemblance to an America novel, titled Morning, Noon & Night by Sidney Sheldon.
