SYNOPIS: ‘The Wrong Selfie’ is a melodrama whereby the good finally triumphs over the bad. The good in this movie is Cassie (Mimi Orijiekwe), who is the wife of Alex (Ik Ogbonna). Alex is the bad here. The story revolves around the characters of Alex (Ik Ogbonna), Cassie (Mimi Orijiekwe) and Cleo (Oma Iyasapa).

The movie, ‘The Wrong Selfie’ is a breathtaking movie with outstanding actor and actresses. The storyline is great and the screenplay is just explicit. I would definitely recommend people to watch the movie especially all single ladies in search of Mr right and men out there. For men out there, they should never underestimate the power of a woman and for single ladies, be careful of men who claim not to be married, they are dangerous and finally get themselves into an incomprehensible dilemma. The wrong selfie is indeed a wrong selfie. The story just literally exposes us to the kind of men we have in our society and the extent at which women can go to fight for their husband and make them happy by all means. In the movie, Cassie (Mimi Orijiekwe) showed more love and respect to her husband even though she knew that he was cheating on her. This is very unusual to a typical married woman. In a typical home, the woman would either confront her husband or do the same as her husband and cheat and that is how that marriage would be broken. This movie just gives an insight of what you do in such situations. Now to the technicalities of the movie.
Camera shots used in this movie were quite good. The director did a great job here. The costume manager was great. Throughout the movie, no costume was repeated even the jewelries. At the point where Alex (Ik Ogbonna) was supposedly duped by his wife, the movie shows that his house, money and everything he owned were collected. If his things were collected, how come they were still living in a comfortable house and food wasn’t a thing to struggle for. The director should have made him look wretchedly poor and make his living from hand to mouth. He facial expression was good for that part but his clothes looked new, he should repeated his clothes during the period he was poor. Towards the end of the movie,, Alex is seen to have almost won a lottery game and the part where he almost beat the lottery sales boy who denied him of winning the lottery shows that even 5 naira meant the world to him.
The characters fit the role and the movie is great. I would recommend people to watch this movie
The movie is a wonderful movie. All the characters fit the role given to them. My favourite quote was by Alex (Ik Ogbonna) when Cleo asked for 25 milion naira. His response was funny. “ you didn’t ask for 5 million, 7 million even 8 million”
