REVIEWER: EGBE MARYJANE OGOCHUKWU (14BE016574)
The movie is a humor-based movie and is centered on an uneducated village girl who travels to the city, to find the father of her out-of-wedlock baby, only to find him engaged to a sophisticated woman that she cant even compete with.Ordinarily this movie is not likely to appeal to the critically minded people, especially on account of it’s simple though, funny title.Dumebi The Dirty Girl comes with a great interplay of storyline and relevant themes.
The movie revolves around the life of Dumbi (Mercy Johnson), a lousy, dirty (as the name implies), lazy and irresponsible girl and her move from the village to the city to be with the father of her child, Frank (Kenneth Oknokwo).
The casting was ingenious with mercy Johnson playing the part of an ill-mannered village girl well, even though it apperared to be slightly exaggerated at times.All the characters in the movie were colorful and added a burst of life to the story. The harmony and cohesion between the chaacters were noticeable and gave the movie a good flow. Although as pertaining to most home videos in the Nigerian movie industry the sound,lightening and continuity were less satisfactory .
The prolonging of certain irrelvant scenes where nothing much was done made it a bit monotonous to watch, and seemed as if they tried too hard to stetcch it out into a two-part film and that weakened the already porous storyline.Despite, all the minor glitches, the film will leave everyone who watches it in stitches. Although Mercy Johnson is got to be the most versatile actress on the planet.
I will recommend this movie to anyone who just had a bad day, looking for something to laugh about and while away time, it is not a movie to take too seriously.
