NOTHING FOR MAHALA opens in cinemas 4th October 2013 its starring Thapelo Mokoena, Marius Weyers, Mmabatho Montsho and Jamie Bartlett

Director Rolie Nikiwe and Producer by Harriet Gavshon

“Nothing for Mahala” is a comedy drama in the vein of The Full Monty.  Axe Gumede (Thapelo Mokoena) is an up-and-coming commercial property agent, desperate to make his mark in life and believes you have to spend money in order to make it. Only problem is Axe is spending a lot more than he is making, driving the flashy car and trying to live up to the Motsepes. This extravagant lifestyle gets him into trouble with loan sharks and, through a series of mishaps, in trouble with the law.

His fast-paced career is rudely interrupted when he gets sentenced to 200 hours of community service at an old-age home. The problem is that, at work, Axe is vying with an ambitious colleague, Pule (Shoki Mokgapa), for promotion, and is challenged to land “a big deal” to impress his boss, Mike (Jamie Bartlett).  He can’t afford to take his eye off the ball.
