Movie Premiers are not something that the public look out for in Uganda and this may be attributed to the fact that the movie industry is not yet there. Whenever a movie premier, its cast, their families, and a few ardent movie fans as well as critics attend, but due to publicity given to Veronicas Wish, at least a good number of people turned up for its premier last Saturday at Serena Hotel. Besides its story line, one more captivating thing about this movie is that it is among the few Ugandan movies that were write, produced and directed by women. Nisha Kalema, lead actress do writing and producing, while Rehema Nanfuka, recognize actress do directing. Veronicas Wish is an awesome film and during nomination of Uganda Film Festival, it had four nominations, which cause lot of attention on social media because by the time of its nomination, movie hadnt premiered yet. However, after witnessing what the movie is all about, we can barely blame the organizers of the festival because it should have been nominated even more. Base on a true story, movie is about a couple that had their dreams broken when, just days before their wedding, bride is diagnosed with Leukemia. Her wish is to create awareness about killer disease and to get married to her husband. It has sad, wow and humorous scenes, which keep the audience glued to screens. No wonder Bryan Ahumuza of Abryanz fashion and Style Awards won auctioning of art piece of Movie at shs1. 5million. The main cast of the movie includes Nisha Kalema as Veronica, Housen Mushema as the groom as well as Malaika Nnyanzi and Simon Base Kalema among others.
