The movie follows the story of a woman, Hankuri Phillips (Omoni Oboli) who is a serving Minister who has been anointed by the President to be the party’s standard-bearer in an upcoming gubernatorial election in Ondo State. The snag is; she is not the preferred choice of the party stakeholders at the State level for reasons not unconnected with the fact that she is a woman and not an indigene of Ondo State. She is only affiliated to the State by marriage.
Her husband, Dimeji Phillips (Richard Mofe-Damijo), a medical doctor, is supportive of his wife until a twist of events has him running for the same office as his wife as the candidate of the opposition party. The movie ostensibly draws its title from what ensues afterward.
The casting of Love is War was very realistic, they did a very good job at portraying their characters in such a mind-blowing manner
Omoni Oboli is a very good actress. What?! She brought her A-game and gave so much life to Mrs. Philips. Mofe Damijo was as smooth as he always is. His energy matched with hers in that movie and together they created a balance that was very fun to watch.
