(+SYNOPSIS) THROWBACK MOVIE: FOOD, LOVE OR BOTH!

(+ SYNOPSIS) THROWBACK MOVIE: FOOD, LOVE OR BOTH

 A lady- Desire (Acted by Ijeoma Grace Agu) who is betrothed to an over-principled, perfectionist, and self-centered guy- Ebuka (Acted by Anthony Monjaro) has no idea about how to cook. She buys food from eateries, and serves to Ebuka, making him think her hands are behind the exceptional cooking.

One night, Ebuka asks Desire to prepare dinner for his friends and girlfriends without giving Desire prior notice about it. Because of the short notice, she is unable to get food from eateries as usual. Desire, however, comes out open about how she always buys food, and serves him, because of her inability to cook, since her mum never created time to be with her while growing up.

Desire, however, tries preparing the food herself but it was a total mess. Ebuka disgraces her in front of his friends and cancels their forthcoming wedding. He sends her out of his house and orders her to go back to her mother’s house or grandma’s house to learn home training and how to cook before thinking of marriage with him.

Desire tries to get her mum to create time for her for the first time, and then teach her how to cook so that she can save her marriage, but her mum is really not the bonding type, so, she ignores Desire and asks her to go to her grandma in the village to learn how to cook.

Desire goes to the village and learns how to cook from a guy- Iyke (Acted by Kelechi Udegbe) who has big dreams of owning a big eatery in the city. Desire and the guy fall in love, but Desire is skeptical about going into another relationship when she is still dating Ebuka.

Hence, Desire turns down Iyke and tells him she has someone she wants to marry. When Desire returns to the city, she finds out that her fiancé- Ebuka already impregnated another woman. This of course paves way for her to say yes to Iyke, but not without having to go through some hassles to find him as Iyke has been lifted off from the shackles of poverty after his brother who owed him lots of money paid him back in triple folds.

 Would Iyke still be available for Desire? Find out!

 

I really don’t know why Desire’s mum was angry with her mum. The dialogue between Desire’s mum and grandma was not clear at all. In as much as I love this movie; I am wondering if it is truly realistic to want to return to a guy like Ebuke, who sent her out without any remorse.

Ogefash's Styl

Born in the 80’s, Ogefash picked up writing early in her secondary school days at International School, University of Lagos (Unilag). She took it professionally after her university days at the University of Lagos where she graduated from the Department of Mass Communication. She is a writer of several short stories some of which have been published in the magazines. Some of her popular stories are: A Night to Remember, The Special Gift, Haunted, Preparing Ahead of Time amongst others. Her novel "Looming Danger" published in December 2015, was highly recommended by people. She has worked with several media outlets some of which are Spur Magazine and Upcoming Magazine. She is an educationist. With her love for children, she took up the task of supervising and taking care of children at the After School Department of Heritage School before her resignation. Her unique strory telling and song teaching skills endeared her more to the kids she worked with. Ogefash is a goal getter, a pace setter and always strives for excellence. She likes to impact and solve problems in a creative way regardless how challenging they may be. She has in-depth knowledge in reporting, editing, social media and other media related works. She is a seasoned writer and very passionate about her work. Interestingly, her blog is the first in Nigeria to start reviewing Nigerian and foreign movies and also write the movies' plots scene by scene. Ogefash blog is also the first to translate songs, interprete and give a full detailed analysis about music and artistes in Nigeria, Africa and America before other blogs started emulating her style. While other blogs provided just music lyrics alone, we took it higher by not only providing lyrics, but translating, interpreting and analyzing as well. It is also the first blog to give detailed analysis of adverts. Interestingly, Ogefash blog also known as Ogefash Photo Blog is the first blog all over the world to blog with lots of interesting pictures to support all articles. Ogefash says "I don't keep male friends because they always say "sex" is part of friendship. I don't keep female friends because they are always bitchy. I only keep people I can call more than a friend!" Ogefash has an affinity for TV reality shows. In 2018, she represented Nigeria in the PanAfrican TV reality game show "The Maltavator Challenge" powered by Nigeria's number one malt drink packed full of energy giving vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6;Malta Guinness. The show brought together four African countries Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia and Coted'ivoire who competed for the grand prize of 20,000 dollars. Undaunted by any task in her field, Ogefash is highly energetic and creative. She is a rare gem and a gift to this generation.
