Steamy rom-com ‘Love Lives Here’ tells the tale of a woman caught between two worlds, the township lifestyle and the suburbs
Thando Thabethe and Lungile Radu team up in "Love Lives Here”, a movie about love, loyalty, friendship and family. The star-studded cast also includes Zola Nombona, Andile Gumbi, Motlatsi Mafatshe, Nomalanga Shozi and Nkanyiso Bhengu.
Filmed in KwaZulu-Natal and directed by Norman Maake, it tells the story of Zinhle Malinga (Thabethe), a hard-working modern woman with strong traditional values who has been burnt by love. Luckily, she has her two best girlfriends, Baphindile (Shozi) and Afiya (Nyokabi Angela Gethaiga) to cheer her up.
Zinhle is not willing to play games and waste time. She is ready to take the next step in her life and get married. The story starts and she meets Nkosinathi Shange (Radu), a true blue player, who has been burned in love. The chemistry they feel for each other is too hard to ignore. They decide to give their relationship a chance, but they are both a little wary and hesitant to truly commit, or be too open about who they are. Zinhle is so real, and so unpretentious that Nathi decides to give her one last test – he takes her to where he lives, his mother’s backroom.
