This is a love story between a white man and a black woman in the new South Africa
I have not read Nape'a Motana, author of Fanie Fourie's Lobola's book yet, but thoroughly enjoyed this movie which is based on it. Nape'a wrote in both English and Sepedi, I believe, while the film is in Zulu, English and Afrikaans (fully subtitled). It begins with a silly dare between brothers, and is an honest and positive story reflecting accurate and nuanced complex relationships between black and white in South Africa. Having said that, it is definitely a romantic comedy, in that it makes you both laugh and cry. The situations are true-to-life, many of the attitudes - especially of the older people - are very recognizable and you end up rooting for the hero and heroine in a big way.
