Who’s The Boss follows Liah (Sharon Ooja) as she tries to explore her career but has to break free from the shackles of her demanding boss. This leads her to try daring things and fall in love with an unlikely alliance.
Who’s The Boss?
Most of us have already experienced that person.
You know, that boss or superior who just keeps getting on your last nerves but you can’t say no to? They take up all your free time with extra work, they keep calling you in from your happy hour to work and you just can’t muster the courage to say “no sir”, “no ma’am”, “I can’t do this no mo’”, “I quit!“. Well, that’s the situation Liah found herself in.
She was an assistant to an overbearing boss who kept giving her bottom barrel treatment and even sabotaged her promotion. After her boss sabotaged Liah’s promotion, you would thing Liah would have sense, just cut ties with that company and take her valuable talent elsewhere.
But no! She doesn’t do that.
I know, it’s not that easy, but…
Who’s The Boss helps you see that you shouldn’t be alone in your journey to success…
Instead, when her friend suggests that she kicks the job or not take her boss’ calls at odd hours, Sharon would go, “oh, I’m sorry, I can’t do that”, sighs in helpless exasperation, “I just can’t”.
You see, in this situation, this is where good friends come in. Who’s The Boss helps you see that you shouldn’t be alone in your journey to success. Even on that road, you need friends who would hold you up when you feel down and push you forward when you’re scared to do what needs to be done.
A Perfect Plan
In most films, plans don’t always work out but they do work as expected at the end of the film. If someone wanted to get a client for work, she would meet several bumps on the way but would certainly get that client at the end of the day. For most people, this is not real life and this wasn’t Liah’s life.
In Who’s The Boss, everything didn’t work out as smoothly as was planned in the end. Liah’s plans didn’t end exactly the way she or we wanted. This is one thing that stood out for me. In real life, you may be heading one way, but an unexpected turn takes you elsewhere. Situations like this demand that you adjust and make a plan C.
And just like Liah, one way or another, things will work out. Even if it means falling in love with the one person you shouldn’t.
Who’s The Boss is every young Nigerian’s tale. Sometimes, you don’t know where you’re headed career-wise, other times, it’s been ten years since graduation and you still don’t understand what’s going on in your life. Well, you’re not alone and you don’t have to do it alone. You just have to take those chances even if you don’t know exactly where they’re headed until you get there.
Who’s The Boss is poetry to every Nigerian who has dreams and are scared to pursue for one reason or the other.
I sincerely hope we get Who’s The Boss on Netflix. I certainly want to watch this one again.
