The blueblood of Sakais



Semalam gi GSC MidValley Megamall nak layan Duyung at the gala premiere of the film which opens March 6, kalau tak silap aku. Tuh dia si Norman, head honcho of KRU films berdebar debar menunggu reaksi orang towards the film. I've seen the trailers and it looks interesting, but the actual hasil entah camna.

It was packed because apparently the screening termasuk some 1,000 peminat yang menang tiket nak layan the premiere skali. Wow. Chaotic siot!

Tapi yang pentingnya, invitation kol 8 malam. Screening of the actual movie is 9.30pm. What the... dah ler ramai ramai rush nak be there by 7pm sebab takot sangkut the Friday jam... akibatnya dok berejam tunggu.

Sambil sambil tuh, layan ler amik pics of the... erm... festivities. Meka try to change the entrance of GSC into this underwater themed area, which was... erm... decent.

Ushers pakai beach wear and wet suits with flippers and goggles and all. Tapi the amusing part was erm... the merman yang diangkat masuk. Merasalah duyung jantan tuh. Then later joined by duyung female lak.





Ramai yang mrembes ler tengok dua ekor duyung nih. Erm... aku rasa cam dua orang model yang separa dikapankan oleh kain glitter jer sambil diikat dua bantal kat kaki jerk. Heh. Besides that is one fish that looks rather masin for me. Matilah kena maki ngan Ayu pasnih! Ampun, gurl!

Moved into the holding area to hang out with friends to chit chat and catch up. So took a few more shots.

"Ingat aku tak nampak ko nak snap pic aku?? Ko nak apa hah???" Yasmin Hani pose ayu... heh!


Maya Karin a little more prepared nak kena papparazi ngan aku.



After we were allowed to go into the hall to endure several speeches and such, the movie pun started. So how was it? Erm...it was.. "SOKONG FILEM BUATAN TEMPATAN!"

What? Oh... how was the movie. well... put it this way lah ek. If you love Razak Mohaideen's films selama nih, this is the best with the amount of budget that they put in. What did I think of it? Kalao betul betul - erm... I won't say anything nasty about the film lah. No, I won't mention skrip terlalu simple, gaping holes in the plotline, the boring direction, the kayu lakonan or even the bad costumes.

I will say that... erm... the soundtrack was nice.

Cuma sedih sikit sebab Maya didn't have enough depth in her character for her to act out the mystical mermaid. She appeared as a dizzy fish jerk yang speaking ala Indonesian with a little Sabahan accent thrown in.

Apek's character was just himself, Hani was a little amateurish (I blame the director for this) and Awie was just irritating. Sayang because these are good actors and actresses. Tapi tu la... bab filem nih, kekadang lakonan seseorang bergantung a lot to the director. Kalao hampeh... hampeh la teruih.

All in all - it was like an expensive (and yet looking cheap) version of a pementasan drama which was Little Mermaid-esque with the theme yang layak tuk Hari Penyampaian Hadiah Sekolah Menengah Kampung Pelir Hitam (tuh diah!!!... sempena nak mai Akademi Fantasia...da kuar nama vogue tuh!)

But all in all - still, I think my expectations were too high kot. Secara am nya aku rasa filem ni ramai akan suka - though again like I said, kalao ko tak minat hasil Razak Mohaideen selama nih, don't bother la kan.

If you have RM10 or so (depending kalao murah lagik tiket korang beli tuk show tu that amount la) to spare... erm... check out the film. But check out other review tuk get a better picture of how the film is. Aku rasa mabuk laut lak pas tengok filem nih.

Something familiar about this picture... the way they pose... Maya Karin nampak cam Hayden @ Claire in Heroes lak.


Tuh dia... the cast of Heroes gituh punya pose


Abihnya, we kumpul in the lobby area. Masa tuh nak set plan nak lepak... Samuel was at the screening too so dok tanya dia dan Rizki apa plan of party gituh. Borak ngan Faz on the phone, and then set jumpa. Juan ikot skali satu keta ngan aku dan Boo. Pas lepak... ramai ramai ke supper.

Merasalah berangan kan... valueables dalam keta ko include a Gucci, and ipod and two Nokias tak? Very the brand sensitive perompak ok!


This is how you do your eyes ladies, for a night out... Faz looking sweet as she is. Samuel lak ala candid. Heh.. no posed shots for those of you yang nak tengok sweet pics.

To Sammy, have a safe trip back to Jakarta. Rizki, thanks for joining us and making it fun. Nanti balik KL lepak agik ek. Seronok kengkawan yang leh masuk satu pala.

Aduh... slept the whole day puas puas siot. Tido sebelom 7 pagik (niat nak update tapi tertido lak, leh?) and woke up 4pm! Amik ko!

Damn... tak sempat ke Pencarian Hero Remaja walau da plan sebab dijemput. Tapi jap lagik nak ke Pelita lepak ngan Juan dan bebudak Hero Remaja. Takper la... hina hina mamak pon... kita semua seronok. Bokan nak lepak tempat orang kerabat yang molot kurang ajar dan berangan (menci tol some members of a certain Royal famly yang tunjuk perangai cam sakai - da kertu nak mampos layak dok rumah jaga cucu jer tapi feeling melalak nak attention pakai cam hooker with make up to match).

But that's another story of an incident yang jadik smalam - that won't make it here. Yes, let's reside in a beautiful world where people like that don't exist by ignoring them.

Yawn... nak mandi sat and make my way. Have a fun weekend all, and be safe ok...
