Keeping up with the Kandasamys, raked in a remarkable R1.6 million at the box office on opening weekend (3 March 2017). The film’s prosperity continued during the second weekend (10 March 2017), with an astounding total of R4,049,418 to date with an attendance of 76 114 people.
This rib-tickling, two-sided family comedy affair, was directed by Durban filmmaker Jayan Moodley (White Gold) and co-written by Moodley and Rory Booth.
“This film has something for everyone. The universal story of neighbourhood rivalry, our desperate need for acceptance and the climb for perceived societal success, is something which touches everyone the world over. At the end of the day we can all recognize our quirks and foibles and the funny side of the weird, wonderful and strangely competitive world we live in,” adds Moodley.
Keeping up with the Kandasamys promises audiences some truly funny laughs about families, relationships and neighbourhood-envy.
The film was produced by the award-winning duo, Helena Spring and the late Junaid Ahmed (who sadly passed away in November), in association with The National Film and Video Foundation, The Kwazulu Natal Film Commission, M-Net and The DTI , with distribution by Ster-Kinekor Entertainment.
It features music by Kyle Deutsch and The Parlotones. The film is currently showing at selected theatres nationwide (see list below).
