Directed by Ikechukwu Onyeka and produced by Chinwe Egwuagu, the movie ‘Mr. and Mrs.’ is a tale of how a woman whose marriage had been reduced from the love-filled home it originally was to a shadow of itself plagued with violence, lack of love and care and subjection to emotional maltreatment, finds a way to rescue her home and regain the love of her husband.
The movie starred major players in the movie industry who interpreted their roles perfectly among who were Nse Ikpe Etim, Joseph Benjamin, Barbara Soky, Thelma Okodua and Paul Apel. The romantic drama reflects the struggles that marriages go through and attempts to correct some of those wrongs.Two marriages play out in this drama; the marriage of Ken Abbah, from a wealthy home and Managing Director of Hills Oil and Gas to Susan Abbah, daughter of a poor ‘washman’ who is being maltreated and abused by her husband and the marriage of Linda, banker and career woman to loving husband, Charles, who loves her so much and supports her. The Abbah family is more prominent in the movie as the ordeal of Susan is more horrific as she has been reduced from a wife to a maid by her husband, Ken, whom she still loves so much but who seems to have fallen out of love with her but still uses her to satisfy his sexual needs. On the other hand, Linda and Charles eem like the perfect couple from the outside but the imperfection in their marriage was later revealed and it turned out to be ugly.
Eventually, Susan and Ken work out their problems and Ken falls back in love with his wife. Linda and Ken jointly decide to make their marriage work despite their shortcomings and Linda agrees to make sacrifices in her career.
The movie is very educative in terms of relationships and how to approach them without taking each other for granted. One beautiful thing about the movie is the dialogue which just fits in so right with the perfectly interpreted roles.
Without a doubt, this movie is one to watch. Get it here, don’t have people tell you about it. Enjoy!!!
