Tiwa Savage's debut feature-length film is visually stunning with great cinematography and vibrant colours. The lead star gives a commendable performance that could have been better.

Meji Alabi tells a story about an unfulfilled woman whose return to her homeland brings both good and bad memories of the life she left behind.

Tiwa is Aisha, the heroine who is caught up in past and present events when she rekindles an old flame that threatens to escalate in violence. As events unfold, she realizes that to go forward, she must come to terms with her past and stop running from her own story.

Actress Jemima Osunde who portrays Aisha's friend Stephany does what she can with the little she is given. She is a forgettable character who comes and goes.

The ultimate scene stealer here turns out to be Ghanaian star Andrew Yaw Bunting, who plays Aisha's love interest, Kay. His charisma, magnetic persona, and charm simply make him irresistible. However, the movie's biggest reveal involving him isn't given the treatment it deserves, leading to an anti-climactic and disappointing ending.

Plot-wise, Water & Garri isn't anything new but the progression of events and a committed yet flawed outing from Tiwa make it worthwhile.

It isn't perfect and may never win any major award but that won't stop me from recommending it to movie lovers out there who want to see Africa's Bad Gyal in a leading role.
