Hits and Misses of Eniola Badmus’ Madam Cash

Madam Cash is the story of a spoilt child – Ayotunde (Eniola Badmus) who is unable to live her life independent of her mother (Ayo Mogaji), despite the fact that she is married. She contacts her mother at the slightest provocation, which is often times engineered by her. She is ill-tempered, jealous and insecure, all of which make her frustrate her husband – Dolapo (Peters Ijagbemi) to no end. Dolapo does not take her attitude seriously. Although hurt, he keeps loving her until she leaves her matrimonial home for her mother’s and the plot changes. Madam Cash is a 2020 Yoruba movie written by Tunde Komolafe, directed by Afeez Abiodun and produced by Eniola Badmus. It is an EniBad production that features Ayo Mogaji, Eniola Badmus, Peter Ijagbemi, Broda Shaggi, Remi Surutu, Mide Martins Abiodun, Adeniyi Johnson and Afeez Abiodun. Hits Picture Quality: The picture quality is beautiful except for one scene. Audio: The video is audible and both the music and voices are heard according to schedule. None overrides the other. Costume: There was a good display of fabrics and tailoring skills. The African heritage as per clothing was well displayed. Acting: The choice of actors prove that Eniola has not been playing in the industry for so long. Each one delivered his role with the expertise they are know for. The comic roles were quite comical while the romantic/serious ones weren’t played lightly. Misses Plot: The story was a bit slow. It seemed to drsg s little bit before the real actions began which sort of made it predictable. Theme: The subject matter is an over-flogged one. It’s the same old couple’s squabble over who has what, intolerance, insecurity and the inevitable ‘disgruntled spouse meets and marries someone better’. Make-belief: The end of the movie almost ruined everything. The point where the disgruntled Ayotunde lifts the pot of boiling rice, pours it on herself and begins to squirm on the floor is quite laughable. The make-up denoting her peeled face is heart-breaking, I mean, with what had been, a better make-up was expected. Finally, when Ayotunde goes to beg for Dolapo’s forgiveness, all her scars seem to have vanished. That’s a point of big ‘NO’. There should have been something to show for Dolapo’s reference to her as a ‘beast’.
Generally, the movie has a relaxing effect that would make it worth your while. Reviewed by Gbemi Adebare.
