“WHAT GOES AROUND” is a twisted tale about male/female relationships, that looks at the issues of infidelity, safe sex and HIV awareness.” Surason Website
It takes a lot to impress me, but one Sunday night in 2008 in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Film Director Tehut9 and his production crew succeeded.
In 2008, (yes, you heard right), I was invited to the premiere of Tehut9’s latest film “What Goes Around”, starring some famous dancehall faces, and I was left not only impressed but filled with pride. This movie is a twisted tale about male/female relationships, that looks at the issues of infidelity, safe sex and HIV awareness.
On the night of the premiere there were two shows, both sold out. Had there been a third show scheduled, I imagine that would have been sold out as well. From where I stood toward the end of the first showing, people were commenting about wanting to stay
for the second show. Unfortunately for them, the 8 p.m. crowd wasn’t having it at all.
“What Goes Around” is just like the title suggests, and there is no shortage of deceit, lies, lessons, laughs and good ole karma. An eclectic cast which boasts everyone from a famous model to a cameo from a dancehall superstar; each executing their role exceptionally well.
“Steve (Tehut9) is a great story-teller’ commented “Shottas” producer/director Cess Silvera who I invited and sat him in the seat next to mine. After all, I wanted to see the expression on his face throughout the film and get his honest feedback. The evening was so magical we actually stayed for the second show. Watching Cess Silvera stand up and applaud at the end of the film made me feel even more proud of Tehut9, his vision, the cast, and our film industry.
What impressed me about Tehut9’s writing and the cast, was the way they conveyed serious messages often times in a comedic fashion. This film is far from being classified as a comedy, but you will laugh. Oh yeah…I know I did many times. Hey, chalk it up to some amazing acting skills and the writers ability to not become preachy.
It’s difficult for me to decide who my favorite character was. The flamboyant Sylvester played by Flippa Mafia (you may not remember him as John John in “Shottas”, but I bet you won’t forget him in this flick). Randy played by dancer/dj Ding Dong, Jimmy Winchester (KC Jockey), Elroy (Supa Twitch), Denzel (Nohard ‘Noah’ Grant), Lucille, Adonis, the crackhead or John. When you watch it, you can decide.
Fast forward to now (December 2015).
After seven years, “What Goes Around” is finally being released and is now available for purchase. Feel free to log onto http://www.sunrason.com and order your copy. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
This will not only make a great stocking stuffer, but it will also be another masterpiece to add to your movie collection. Besides, I bet nothing will trump the satisfaction you’ll feel knowing you supported our film industry.
