<p class="">  "<em>It is a mixture of feminism and patriarchy and what is going on in the world. That role gave a teachable moment for our men; I feel men should listen more to their women, understand that your wife is a human being like you, she has ambitions, goals, and dreams. </em></p>

<p class=""><em>"The story means a lot to me; you should stay true to yourself. Everyone has got the same set of circumstances, they just don’t have the same set of circumstances at the same time. Everybody fails, succeeds, has moments of glory, ups, and downs, that’s what the movie portrays,</em>" he says.</p>

<p class="">"<em>It is relatable for everyone. You can see in the story that one of the characters just finds pleasure embarrassing his wife; some men don’t like women living their lives and flying, everything must be restricted to the home, while a lot of others live a fake life pretending to be rich when they don’t have it,</em>" Ojo said.</p>

<p class="">"<em>We need to do something more contemporary, otherwise we will be doing something abstract. For me, it was more of a passion than skill. There is a way to tell a story with humour and people get to accept it; many men don’t accept the reality of life.</em>" </p>
