Considering the controversy trailing this movie, I was pretty elated when I saw it on DSTV box office. I must say that, I was a little dissappointed to say the least. The movie was obviously overhyped. If I had gone to see it in the cinema, I probably would have requested for a refund. Okafor's Law talks about the "acclaimed " law that states that once a man has had a woman once, he can always have her again despite her current status (scoffs).
Blossom plays "Chuks the terminator " as he's fondly called by his friends, due to his sexual conquests with the ladies. Playboy with a little cash to throw around, Chuks is a firm believer of "Okafor's Law " and will go to any lenght to prove it to his friends, even if it means loosing some shares in the company they co-own.
My first problem with the movie is that it had a way of making the actor's look really bad. They sounded like they were reciting their lines and trying to outdo each other, which made the movie extremely boring, I was trying so hard not to fall asleep. Toyin Abraham was basically counting her words, probably trying not to gbagaun. The highlight in the movie for me was when she finally blurted out in Yoruba with this "English cannot come and kill me" attitude, (Classic).
On the bright side, the picture quality was really good, there's nothing as annoying as seeing a boring movie with a bad picture quality, that to me is like gambling with my sanity. Trust RMD to always deliver even in a not so great movie. My favourite scene was when he met Chuks, in his words, "I no be street, I be area". That scene kinda gave me some kinda hope and assurance that I didn't completely waste my time and 400naira.(lol).
In all honesty, I still don't get the message the movie is trying to pass. I personally feel Okafor's Law is a dumb theory and it seemed like Omoni Oboli kinda promoted it in the movie. Not all ladies go back to their vomit Omoni. I still like you though. I hope I didn't bore you guys
Who else has seen Okafor's Law? I haven't, but I've seen some reviews and they're not very flattering. Omoni seems to be more interested in churning out movies every other month than she is in investing in the quality of her work. Tsk tsk. We all love you Omoni and that's why we want to see you do better work.
