Despite all of Seyi's shortcomings, Dara Ju kept me riveted because I recognized myself in him.

Ameen's performance is heartfelt, yet the film needs more polished insight.

Writer-director Onah, himself a Nigerian-born artist, understands Seyi through and through. His storytelling is simple but brisk and coherent.

Overall Dara Ju still delivers on its promise of sharing a piece of the immigrant experience that needs to be told, but much like the film's ambitious protagonist, it loses track of some of the details along the way.

The Price is best when it lets the characters breathe and exist in space, often with little to no dialogue... Sadly, there's a rhetorical hammer to be swung in The Price, and at times Onah doesn't pull back enough.

But the complex overall themes here are dealt with in such abrupt fashion that their treatment ultimately feels superficial. Still, you can hardly indict Onah for trying to make complex themes briskly palatable.

Dara Ju doesn't feel groundbreaking, but it feels lived-in and genuine.
