When would-be mother in-laws are undisguised enemies, bride and the groom are in serious trouble. Guests too must be prepared for the worst, as shown by star actresses, Sola Sobowale and Ireti Doyle, in a new movie, The Wedding Party, screened in Lagos on Thursday.
The film is a collaboration between Ebony Life, Film One, Konga Studios and Inkblot Productions.
Like many other young lovers, Dozie and Dunni are determined to prosecute their relationship in a way that will translate into a wonderful marriage — to the extent that they make a covenant to protect their chastity till the first official night. Anyway, the snake-in-the-grass Dozie violates this oath but, somehow, love wins each time Dunni catches him playing games, including the day he finds the underwear of another lady in his pocket.
The rivalry between the mothers-in-law is thus the soup pot on which the director, Kemi Adetiba, who proves that she is a professional to watch, based on how the movie is executed, feeds fat. The rivalry hits the climax when the two women want to outdo each other during the wedding show.
