MOVIE REVIEW : WEDDING INTRODUCTION

The movie “Wedding introduction” was basically about a newly married lady Seyifunmi (Toyin Abraham) who started cheating on her husband Yinka (Muka Ray) when he lost his job. She was having a sexual affair with another married man- Durojaiye (Olayinka Quadri) and this led to his untimely death because of the charm ‘Magun” her husband- Yinka (Muka Ray) had supposedly placed on her when he suspected he was cheating on her. Durojaiye before his death gave Seyifunmi a lot of things financially, materially etc. and only his trusted friend- Ayanlade (Rasaq Olayiwola) knew about his relationship with her. Ayanlade also knew that Seyifunmi was behind his friend’s death but did not expose her because of what she gave to him. Seyifunmi unhappy about her benefactor’s death, cursed the person who had put a curse on her, this led to the death of her husband Yinka (Muka Ray). Meanwhile, Durojaiye’s real wife also placed a curse on the person behind her husband’s death; she did not wish the person death, but that the person should be disgraced.

Years down the line, Seyifunmi already moved on with her life and wanted to settle down with a charming boo Ponmile (Ahmed Yususf) (But the guy fine sha and gentle) who happen to be Ayanlade’s first child. Meanwhile, Ayanlade knew her past. Do you think Ayandale will let them marry? Find out here

Interesting Yoruba movie I must say and suspense filled also. Not too lengthy, just about one hour twenty five minutes (1hour 25minutes) and it is quite easy to understand.

Talking about the suspense, so was “the cat that was finally let out of the bag” worth it? Somewhat I must say. Why? Seyifunmi actually did not kill Durojaiye intentionally. They were both having an extra marital affair and this led to his death. It is like a man/woman having sex with his wife/husband and in the process he or she dies of  heart attack or something else, would he/she be charged for murder? She did not bring out a knife to stab him or a gun to shoot him or self used voodoos on him. There was no way she could have known that someone put “magun”on her. There was even no scene that showed that Yinka actually put Magun on her, though he threatened her, but then there should have been a scene for it. And that brings me to the issue of missing scenes. There were some questions that needed answers, but there were no scenes for them; I call them missing scenes

Missing Scenes

Did she really have magun? Who put it on her?

How/Why did Ayanlade suddenly conclude that Seyifunmi has Magun? is he an herbalist? We know he likes to act as an herbalist in most movies, but in this movie, he is just a drummer. (Meanwhile, good to actually see Rasaq Olayiwola aka Ojopagogo take up other roles aside being a native doctor)

Pictures of Rasaq Olayiwola aka Ojopagogo from the Movie- Wedding Introduction

We don’t know anything about Adunni’s marital, business and personal life, all we just see is her wealth. No reference made to the kind of life she lived unlike Ayanlade where in one of the scenes we were able to tell that he has a wife. We also know that he is a drummer.

Does Seyifunmi really have strange powers? What really killed Yinka? Was it Seyifunmi’s curse, then she indeed has powers, but how did she get them?

We don’t know if Seyifunmi was cleaned from the supposed Magun she has, I mean for her to be so keen on marrying Ponmile that means she is certain that she is pure.

 

Also, the movie was shot in a way that made look like they never experienced afternoon or night just morning. The only night scenes were in the course of Durojaiye’s death (When Durojaiye died and his wife was expecting him home, when Seyifunmi went to tell Ayanlade about his death, and when the hotel management tried to clear their hotel of Duro jaiyes body; all happened in one night). It was also hard to tell the number of days that had gone after a particular scene. it was just like a morning shoot.

However , I love their acting especially Adunni (Jaiye Kuti). I give the best interpreter of  role to her, from where she was dancing at the wedding introduction, to playing the role of a submissive former lover. Even though she was never married to Ayanlade, she still respected him as the father of her son, which of course she played well. Ponmile is also another interesting actor, though gentle but that did not stop him from speaking out when the need arose. Of course, other great role interpreters are Taiwo Hassan, Yinka Quadri, Rasaq Olayiwola and the rest. Toyin Abraham is no doubt a good actress known to add comic acts to her acting or funny facial expression, but however that may probably not work in all films, certainly not this.

So after watching this movie, I am actually wondering if people are arrested when the person they are having sex with dies (In this case, the arrested person has nothing to do with the person’s death). Kindly hint me in the comment box.

FUNNY SCENES

  • 21 MINUTES 59 SECONDS, Where seyifunmi went to Ayanlade’s house
  • The flashback scene at 35 minutes 45 seconds were Jaiye kuti said she would carry Ponmile’s twins, triplets….(Lol)
  • Why are you acting like a fowl

JUST WONDERING

  • Do people really forget those that truly matter to them just like that, Adunni must have really loved Ayanlade more than he loved her (3 minutes 52 seconds). Ayanlade said he searched for her,  but he still did not recognize her (Despite the fact the he impregnated her)
  • The scene Adunni told her son Ponmile that his name Ayanlade not Akinlade, so who that one help; he can’t suddenly change it, na for mouth e go be changed, not in paper.
  • His name is Ayanlade but in the cast list it is Ayandare. Why?
  • We don’t know how Seyifunmi knew Ayanlade’s house (22 minutes)
  • Did Adunni and Ayanlade start having an affair again, because I am wondering why Adunni’s younger sister referref to Ayanlade as her sister’s husband “ your husband” (in 26 minutes 53 seconds). Like seriously, they were never married.
  • On three occasions, (40 minutes 51 seconds…) Adunni said, “I have to do something about the issue on ground then carried her bag” but we don’t ever get to see what she did, not even one scene shows us her movement
  • It seems like this Ponmile doesn’t know how to drive, his friend drove him in all scenes, I think that was the reason they created that role for his friend, to help drive him. (28 minutes, 43 minutes…)
  • At the 51 minutes, he was watching ball and not acting- ayandale
  • At the 1hour 2 seconds of the film, they should have suspected Ayanlade…I mean, how can someone just sit and be watching them without asking a question?

Costume wise

BUKUNMI OLUWASINA IS “OGEFASH” BLOG CELEBRITY FOCUS FOR THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER “SAYS MOTIGBANA!”

BUKUNMI OLUWASINA IS “OGEFASH” BLOG CELEBRITY FOCUS FOR THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER. “SAYS MOTIGBANA!”

Like the “Gonga Aso” crooner- Abolore Ajifolajifaola Adegbola Akande aka Adigun, aka Alapomeji, aka 9ice once said in his coveted track “Photocopy ko easy, you can never be like me…” such is the case of this young, beautiful and vibrant lady- Bukunmi Oluwasina aka Jgohdezz whose tremendous dexterity has over time stood her out in the entertainment industry.

Saying Bukunmi is a “bundle of talent” is a cliché, so I had rather opt for the infrequent word for this spectacular one; she is got an uberous parcel. At Ogefash Blog, we say “Otigbana”; the rare parcel is on fire and can’t be touched.

Buknumi is a singer and has got a voice that is solely recognized as hers, it can never be photocopied by any other entertainer even if they attempted it, her voice can never be mistaken with any other singer’s. Once her voice comes on, her fans immediately recognize her voice with ease; “That is Bukunmi” they say effortlessly.

She is one of the Nigerian entertainers that passed through school and school also passed through her rather than the former alone. The Theatre Arts graduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University and a graduate from other schools abroad, talk about South Africa and United Kingdom, has shown that even though one may be gifted but education also plays a vital role in honing one’s skills. This is evident in the stupendous performance she puts up when acting; she is a good actress that is the word and her movies will glue you to your seat. She is versatile and can act any role given to her. Bukunmi can cry, as in not only for Africa but all the other continents in the world; Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Australia, Antarctica “#Winks”. If you ask me, I really do not know how she does the magic, but when on set and the scene requires her to cry, the tears flow easily, even if the scene does not warrant tears. It seems to me like she has an invisible bucket of tears ready at one side as she readily cries when a particular scene requires that.

One of her most watched movies “Ayomi” has proven that her writing skills cannot be underestimated. She is indeed a good scriptwriter. I would say a good scriptwriter is one that has all the ingredients to write a good script.

So, have you watched Yeye Oge, Wura Mi, Ayo mi and a host of other films, well what I am trying to tell you is that she is the voice behind most Yoruba movies; she is indeed a terrific sound track composer.

She may have a small frame and age like say born in the 1990’s but believe me, this is what you call small but mighty. She is young, intelligent, goal getter, swift, friendly; a young millionaire if not already raking billions. She is the third born from a family of seven. She is from Ekiti

Bukunmi became the cynosure of the public when she wrote a letter to her future husband telling him in advance that she rejects to be a baby mama since her mum was never one.

View the letter below:

Ogefash Blog presents to you Bukunmi Oluwasina, a scriptwriter, actor, soundtrack composer, song writer, producer and a model. You will agree with me that she deserves to be our celebrity focus for the month of September. We celebrate her on this day and pray God continues to bless the works of her hands.

THROWBACK MOVIE: ISOKAN 1 AND 2

 ANTAR LANIYAN FILMS NIGERIA LTD ISOKAN (2014 MOVIE)

Aliyah (Temidayo Adeniyi) knew it was rare to find an on air personality (OAP) that was humble, loyal, honest and responsible. So the first time she watched popular presenter  Fimihan  Bamidele (Odunlade Adekola) on his “ISOKAN” show, she knew he was set apart from other contemporary presenters. She immediately fell in love with him and sought ways to contact him. It seemed heaven was in support of her moves as Aliyah was able to get Fimihan’s contact. She called him day and night just to show him how much love she had in her heart for him.

Fimihan- the responsible and loving presenter, though was an expert in relationship topics had apparently never dated or had to know what a woman looked like without her clothes on her same with Aliyah; both were virgins.  They vowed to stay virgins until their wedding night even though they constantly had the urge.

 

Meanwhile, Aliyah had this bosom friend Muiz (Funsho Adeolu) that one would think they were lovers. As Fimihan and Aliyah’s relationship grew, so also was Fimihan uncomfortable with his wife to be- Aliyah’s closeness with her male best friend. There was just something in him that felt she was cheating on him with her best friend- Muiz. This made Fimihan upset and clueless on what to do as he was deeply in love with the lady who had first asked him out and can’t do without her. Fimihan met his street friends, told them what was hurting him and they asked him to do this brutal act……
