Inkblot Production premieres The Perfect Arrangement
‘The Perfect Arrangement’, which is about finding oneself and true love in the most awkward circumstances, tells the story of rich and fun-loving Tade (Sharon Ooja), a scion of a respected political family, living her best life and without a care in the world who finds herself in a love triangle.
The film is written by Oluwapelumi Bifarin and Chinaza Onuzo, who doubles as director. It was produced by Zulumoke Oyibo. Speaking at the premiere, Onuzo said the major hurdle faced during the production was time
“We shot in Lagos, Abeokuta, a lot of places, lots of location, like 34 locations all through. My company and FilmOne did a great job with an amazing crew. We had a seamless experience during the film. Love is fun, and love makes everything all right,” he said.
Debo Adedayo (Mr. Macaroni), a Nollywood actor and cast in the movie, who played the role of Oba, the elder brother to Tade, said the film talks about love and a bit of comedy and politics involving rich men and government.
He said: “Love triangle is a crazy triangle. I had a lot of reservations for the characters while reading the script, wondering how you can love two brothers. Because, to me, it makes no sense; it didn’t sit well to me.”
He also cleared the air on his rumoured marriage, saying it was a photo shoot by wedding vendors to get the attention of people. Bovi Ugboma, a comedian and cast in the movie, who played the role of Chidi, one of the brothers in love with Tade, said the film is a typical rom-com type of story with hiccups along the way.
Speaking on the acceptance of skit makers and its effect on comedy, Bovi said: “We should learn to be more collaborative, instead of competitive. Anytime I get that question, I get worried because what they do is online. There is a market for it. What we do is offline. There is a market for it. There are guys who do skit and can do stage. There are guys who do stage and can do skit, for example, me. So, how is that a threat?”
