Jealous Husband

Synopsis:

Debbie played by Uche Jombo and her two friends Nancy and Oluchi played by Uche Nnanna and Ruby Orjiakor are runs girls on campus. They usually arrange their runs through a middleman on campus but Debbie’s desperations to make quick money for her sick father’s hospital bills drives her to the club looking for clients without that safety measure. It is while out at a club doing runs that she comes across Emeka played by Van Vicker who takes a liking to her and hires her out for the whole night. After the night is over they part ways but bump into each other another night in the same club. Emeka sees Debbie dancing with a guy and becomes insanely jealous, confronting and fighting with the guy that she is dancing with. Things develop very quickly between the two and an obsessed Emeka wants Debbie exclusively but will she be able to leave the lifestyle that she is accustomed to behind?

Obsession
Emeka’s obsession develops quickly, from trailing Debbie at the club to turning up unexpectedly on campus. Those were the early warning signs that a relationship with Emeka would prove more trouble than it was worth particularly as Debbie at that time had not developed feelings for him. However money talks and the fuel for her going along with it is to raise money for her father’s hospital bills. How did Emeka even find her family home and the hospital where her father was housed? I don’t remember her even telling him about his sick father. Debbie should have known from then that Emeka was a complete nutjob.

Jealousy
Why marry a runs girl when you know that you will never be able to trust her? It’s pointless. Debbie was right when she said that it wouldn’t work because of how they met. Emeka cannot seem to let go of her past. His jealousy extends to the point of banning her from seeing her friends. We also see how an obsessively jealous man will cover his tracks to those on the outside. For instance when Debbie returns from visiting her parents he calls them to check that she actually visited them in the first place but pretends that he is just making sure that she has left safely knowing full well that she left safely because she is already in the house.

Friendship
There was great chemistry between the 3 friends. The gisting was natural and effortless. You really believed that they were runs girls. I really liked the way they looked out for each others best interests without the usual jealousy that so often characterises “friendships” in Nollywood movies. There was no man snatching or advising their friend not to marry Emeka as I suspected their may be when Debbie expressed that she was having doubts about him. The girls genuinely wanted to see their friend’s happiness, even after Emeka began behaving coldly towards them and that was nice to see.

Funny Scene
At the end of part 2 there is a scene where Emeka slaps Debbie and calls her a prostitute. She charges at him like a bull before realising that he if he caught her he will probably kill her and so runs away. The part where the realisation dawns on her is very funny.

Conclusion:

I enjoyed the movie and would recommend it. It was interesting and entertaining. However there was too much focus on the early club scenes. I felt they could have been shorter and conveyed the same thing. How many shots can we see up someone’s skirt without getting bored of it. I found myself fast forwarding through those scenes. Van Vicker is so dreamy and when he is not acting badly he really is nice to feast eyes upon. He is actually decent in this movie. He plays the part of Emeka with conviction, although the character development could have done with some work. It was good to see Uche with her new figure and hairstyle. I would recommend this one. It however does not finish by part 2 so you like I will need to watch the continuation to find out how the story ends.

    OMG…………Nolly the part 3&4 was just stupid and a waste of time, just watch it and we'll dicuss it later. I was turned off with the ending of the movie.

    part 1&2 was ok, Uche looks fabulos with her new look, Van did well on his part but overall I did not like the ending at all.
