When fast rising actor Joseph Benjamin starred in the $200,000 movie ‘’Tango With Me”, many industry people and the public thought that was the best he could offer. But his recent role in this new romantic drama, Mr & Mrs., where he starred alongside the delectable Nse Ikpe Etim showed the versatility of the young man.

Produced by Chinwe Egwuagu and directed by Ikechukwu Onyeka, Mr & Mrs tells the story of couples whose marriages are constantly threatened by economic and social divisions in the society they find themselves.

Joseph Benjamin and Nse Ikpe connected well in this movie as they brought emotions into their roles. Joseph Benjamin plays Kenneth who is ashamed of his wife’s (Nse Ikpe Etim) background and then decides to confine her to the kitchen, a place he strongly believes she belongs.

In the same vein, the movie also talks about another couple Linda and Charles played by the duo of Thelma Ojiji and Paul Apel who seemingly have a perfect marriage until Linda begins to take her husband for granted because she takes care of all the bills in the home.

The teaser of the movie has already been released and it looks tidy and promises to be interesting with a lot to look forward to in terms of the cinematic affluence, picture quality, storyline and the characters in the movie.
In a move which continues to ensure the quality production of Nollywood movies, the movie is shot on the Canon 5D by director of photography Tom Robson and it is expected that the movie will be released around March this year in Cinemas and also on DVD.

Will Joseph reignite the blockbuster magic like he did in ‘Tango with me’ when Mr. and Mrs finally hits cinema in March? Time will tell.
