Ibaka’s Description:

“Kamar is a bitch” (*Sorry who? OHHHH Karma*), so it is said and it definitely has no favourites. Kunle meets his waterloo (*seriously though, who uses this word?*) when he decides to get married to a lady, who is strongly connected to his ugly past.

From the description you would think Kunle was the protagonist abi?

Pros:

  1. The rapist was a good-looking dude. He was fine as fuck, I must say. It helps to visualize the idea that not all rapists are ugly, creepy looking people – there is no ideal look for a rapist. Anyone can be a rapist, even able-bodied, conventionally attractive individuals.
  2. The extremity of Nina’s father’s actions. Bruh- chaining her to the bed. It really showed some real life possible situations of reactions to people dealing with mental problemstumblr_lnz659C1nx1qinvcko1_400
  3. Nigerians need to stop hiding psychological issues and stop making it a stigmatizing thing… the movie kind of does a good job of bringing a very real problem to light
  4. Olu Jacob’s deep voice (hehehhehe)
  5. I don’t think it was intentional, but the fact that although the mother was the “good” person, she still made many mistakes. She did not believe her own daughter and she did not allow her to receive the professional care she needed. She was not the ally that a rape victim needs, regardless of whether she was better than the dad and sister.
  6. They indicated the difficult strides rape victims have to make in order to prove their rape and get evidence against their assailants. She literally was ready to have sex with the man that violated her just to prove to her family that he was the rapist, and that is such a sad reality.
  7. Camera work and HD quality work for the most part, as I’ve come to expect from Royal Arts Academy

Cons:

  1. Sweatpatches. Kilodeeeeee. The sweat patches on the rapists shirt….
  2. The lion-ish hair that the rapist’s aunty had on her head was completely atrocious, especially since she’s supposed to be rich
  3. The insinuation that the rape victim was healed after the rapist was arrested is not realistic. The psychological damage is still there and she got not help for that. Not to mention, her relationship with her family was just magically mended? After everything they put her through? Haba!
  4. I didn’t understand the purpose of Olu Jacob (the father’s) secretary. She wasn’t really needed to be honest.
  5. What good is a gate man if he can’t perform his only job. He’s not even good for a freaking alibi. The fact that they made him so disposable to the point that he couldn’t even solidify Nina’s story? What is the use of this character, or even making the rapist visible to this character? They could have made him go to the toilet while Kunle came to visit.
  6. The characterization of the rapist, at times, was strange. He enjoyed being in control and seeing her helpless (thus the rush he got from the attack he launched on Nina while no one was home) yet, he was okay and even pushed for a consensual sexual relationship with Nina – it was strange and out of character. nope-nah
  7. The title doesn’t make sense – what was fine about this day? Was it supposed to be a sarcastic title? 
  8. The guy at Tasha’s office that liked her – biko, what is your purpose? Matterfact, what is the purpose of all these useless side characters?
  9. There was a scene where Tasha slaps Nina on the right side of her face, but somehow Tasha held her left side….

Rating: 7/10. Solid movie that brings to light some serious problems with the rape culture in Nigeria.
