‘Happiness is a Four-letter Word’

HappinessHappiness is a Four-letter Word, which is currently showing at New Capital Cinemas at Riverwalk is a 2016 South African romantic drama film directed by Thabang Moleya and written by Melissa Stack.

Based on the novel of the same name by Nozizwe Cynthia Jele, the film tells the story of three black South African female friends in a post apartheid South Africa trying to find their happiness while maintaining images of success and acceptability.

The film comprises trio of a glamorous trophy housewife Zaza played by Khanyi Mbau, Lawyer and compulsive perfectionist Nandi played by Mmabatho Montsho and trendy art gallery owner and serial dater Princess played by Renate Stuurman.

The three friends juggle life's surprising changes as they learn that:'Happiness doesn't come with a manual.' The three try to establish what truly makes each of them happy and then fight to get it in their own unique way.

Happiness is a Four-Letter Word offers a glimpse behind Jo'burg surbabia's white picket fences told through the story of three career-oriented and strong-willed women in search of true love – cliché as it may sound.

The film plays around with voice-over narration with an unfamiliar 'unSouth African' English accent with its unfamiliar tone confounding movie goer rather than adding a new layer to the story. Some scenes would have had more impact with vernacular introduced to the dialogue. It often appears a little too artificial.

Despite its countless flaws, Happiness is a Four-Letter Word is highly entertaining popcorn movie. A perfect date night movie, be it for a ladies night out or a first date and certainly a must-see in the month of cupid.
