Synopsis: IT’S HER DAY is a comedy which tells the story of a couple who are about to get married and the class struggle to get an high end wedding by the bride and her family. Bovi Ugboma plays victor, the newly engaged bachelor who takes it upon himself to give his materialistic fiancée, Nicole (Ini Dima-Okojie) a fairy tale wedding .Victor feels the wedding should be simple but Nicole on the other hand wants a blog worthy wedding with top artist present.
The bride together with her mother (shaffy Bello) and sisters plan a huge society budget wedding which is out of victors pay grade. From hiring Kelechi Amadi Obi for pictures and contacting Davido, Wizkid, Timi Dakolo, Basket Mouth, Julius Agwu, to the wedding, paying 2million naira for a wedding hall, among other hilarious demands from Nichols’s family, victor couldn’t help but find a “Warri” smart way to meet their demands.
The movie is highly commendable because it has succeeded in depicting the class struggle of being counted as high class in our society and at the same time it has been able to put a little twist of comedy into it. Its content are realistic and the story line is well detailed It also passes the message of domestic violence against men which many people have ignored. The screenplay written by Bovi himself was quiet brilliant and the impeccable cast helped uplift the movie.
There are some evident flaws in the movie, there’s no creative photography or editing, the camera work is cloying on occasions the characters appear clustered. Attention was not paid to the editing of the movie instead everything was all about the story line.
