Revolutionary director, Cheta Chukwu, is charting a new refreshing course as far as resourceful comedy movies are concerning with his newly directed movie, ‘PayDay’.
Produced by Manny Ameh, written and directed by Cheta Chukwu, the movie features actors like Big Brother Naija runner-up, Bisola Aiyeola, Baaj Adebule, comedian Ebiye Victor, Mawuli Gavor, Frank Adekunle, Meg Otanwa, Zack Orji and more.
PayDay follows the story of two best friends and flat mates, Paul (Baaj Adebule) and Ortega (Ebiye Victor) who, just before they are about to renew their yearly rent, their Landlord dies very suddenly, and seemingly without any heir apparent. The young men seize upon the unfortunate but good opportunity to ‘enjoy’ a little.
They go on an expensive night out. The Landlord’s daughter (Segilola Ogidan) turns up the following morning and gives the boys 24-hour notice to pay up or quit. They embark on an overnight scheme to recover the rent, leading to a dangerous encounter with an eccentric drug baron (Frank Adekunle Macaulay), a desperate robbery attempt, a gambling adventure, and an ego war with the neighborhood bully, Orlando (Mawuli Gavor). All the while they were hounded by Ngozi (Bisola Aiyeola), the neighborhood gossip, who just wants a piece of the action.
Since the release of the poster of this movie, “PayDay” has been generating discuss online as people say it is one of the most captivating and brilliantly thought out movie posters we have seen in a long while.
