Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh and salam 1 Malaysia..
How are you guys? I hope all of you is fit as fiddle. :-)
I'm quite busy few days before and slightly manage to join several contest. Hehe. Today is about a movie review. The movie is a Malay movie, entitled Merong Mahawangsa. I watch this movie recently and as a fan of KRU products, I think that KRU deserve a thumb up. :-)
This movie is about an epic adventure by Merong Mahawangsa before he was known as the first King of Langkasuka. Langkasuka is the first kingdom established in Tanah Melayu and at that time was known to many names. The story started when two big empires, The Roman Empire and The Chinese Empire had made an arranged marriage between the Roman prince with the Chinese princess to strengthen their empire's relationship. Storm and treacherous sea had annihilated almost all the Roman's fleet and they had to find ship and crews at Goa, India. There, they were introduced to Merong Mahawangsa and set sail to the golden straits. There, they met with the Chinese fleet. Then trouble came. Geruda, the most fearsome pirate manage to annihilate most of them and kidnapped the princess. The story continues as the origin of Geruda was dicovered together with the story of two rival villages, a promised man and the struggle between two major empire to defeat the the unbeatable pirate and to save the princess.
The movie is very interesting and has a touch of history. The Malay language used in this movie is quite classic and almost pure old Malay. The casts acted their characters very well. I like the way and language used by Dato' Rahim Razali in this movie. The main cast, Stephen Rahman Hughes is also had brought his character alive and kicking.
KRU had made quite an improvement in their CGI technic compared to their previous movies. Good job KRU and keep up your good work! :-)
