Just like the romantic title, Love, Lust & Other Things, which Kayode Kasum directed, tells the story of a woman who gets divorced and sets out on a journey of self-discovery to figure out what she really wants in life.
She abandons her marriage of five years to track herself down and satisfy her sexual urge.
Love, Lust & Other Things features Nollywood movie stars such as Wale Ojo, Kunle Remi, Real Warri Pikin, Yakub Mohammed, Efe Irele, and Gloria Young.
Lydia, the divorcee played by Osas Ighodaro meets Khalid (played by Ramsey Noauh), a 56-year-old business tycoon who is ready to sweep her off her feet.
Everything seemed smooth until a blast from the past resurfaced and continued to taunt her.
He is an oldie but a goodie, and he comes tumbling in, taking steps to demolish everything she had perfected for herself.
Caught between three men who take care of her different needs; love and affection, sex, and money, Lydia must decide what she really wants and stick to it!
Her bestie, played by Real Warri Pikin, who was also facing challenges in her marriage, decides to stay and fight it with the man she loves.
Ramsey Nouah and Kunle Remi Connection
The script is interesting, and the main characters delivered their roles as expected. They gave stellar performances. Ramsey Nouah and Kunle Remi
Ramsey Nouah and Kunle Remi should do more movies together – they had a good connection.
The picture quality is good, costumes and audio not bad too.
Interestingly, the dialogue is inspiring, witty, poetic and amazing.
Although, at some point, you would feel lost as the movie starts dragging and disconnecting from the story.
Wale Ojo and Osas Ighodaro pairing as a couple who met in secondary school wasn’t a good match after all.
We all know Wale Ojo is much older and could easily pass for Osas’ father! Kunle Remi fits in perfectly. However, he was the side piece.
Again, why would a man offer to pay off his love interest’s lover with one million of dollars? That’s about N800m.. could that ever be possible? Khalid offering Lydia’s blast from the past, 1 million dollars to leave her for him alone, is kind of bogus. A movie should be a make-believe. Make it sound real!
We would also appreciate it more if Lydia’s husband, who later returned to her life, promised to make amends and never hit her again. He would have gone for therapy and worked on his sex life before her return. So, they wouldn’t have to face the same issue that crashed their marriage again!
In all, Love, Lust & Other Things didn’t really give us the kick, but it wasn’t a bad outing for the efforts 7/10.
