New Money movie is finally out in the cinemas. The Nollywood movie which is a comedy filled and at the same time drama is produced by Tope Oshin Ogun. It’s producer which is also the director of MTV Shuga.
New Money movie combines a not entirely novel but brilliant story with a competent cast to take us on a journey. The movie centers on a young girl, Toun Odumosu, a 23-year-old young woman of modest means. She suddenly finds herself thrust into the world of the elite when she discovers that the father she thought was long dead is a recently-deceased billionaire. Toun life turned around unexpectedly when her wealthy dad (unknown to her) had passed on the CEO role to her by virtue.
Overwhelmed and confused, she took up the responsibility with her passion for fashion on the line. However, Ignoring her mother’s disapproval. Her new lifestyle affected people around her, her mom and her friend. With her contenders ready to force her out of the seat, she often makes their plan easy with her irrational financial decisions. Some of this decision which often put the company in a bad light, and portrays her as an incapable CEO.
With her fashion career on the line and her father’s legacy, she has a choice to make. A rather tough decision for Toun to make.
However, coming to the New Money movie drama itself, its focus is not on how Toun adapts to her new life. Though it seems like an interesting story to explore, it still isn’t about the challenges that come with running a billion-dollar company. It seems to be so much more about that time in your life when you feel like you are in a maze. And there are many difficulties having to choose what tunnel to go in.
Now speaking of the cast, New Money enjoys some of the best acting ever seen in one Nollywood film. While the big names didn’t just stay as big names, they put in the work and gave reasons why they were regarded as big names. Jemima Osunde, who plays Toun Odumosu an outstanding performance all-round. She is supported by actors Blossom Chukwujekwu, Kate Henshaw, Dakore Akande, Folarin Falz Falana, Wofai Fada, Daniel Etim Effiong, Wale Ojo, Osas Ighodaro to mention a few, all of which put in their best to deliver.
Also with a carefully selected playlist to highlight the changing moods, a lineup of Falz and Simi songs. It is definitely hard to go wrong.
