If you haven't seen a lot of Malaysian movies, you're really not missing much. A lot of local movies suck to high heaven. Very rarely, though, you get a decent flick and your faith in Malaysian cinema gets restored.
If you were a fan of the KAMI series showing on 8TV, then you’ll find the movie to be just as entertaining. Fuelled by teen angst, self-doubt, peer pressure and relationships, this story–which is communicated in both Malay and English–centres around four best friends dealing with life's hardships and overcoming them. It debuted in Malaysian cinemas on the first day of Hari Raya this month.
The movie picks up from where the TV series left off, in which Abu (Nas Muammar) pulls off his “prison break” from a juvenile centre to meet up with Ali (Syarul Ezani), Lyn (Liyana Jasmay), Adii (Ani Zayanah) and Sofie (Juliana Sophie Evans) who are, by the way, done with high school. The kids celebrate the end of formal education by sneaking out at night for gigs, gatecrashing parties, and having run-ins with a drug dealer and the authorities. Local bands such as Plague Of Happiness, Meet Uncle Hussain (they're even featured in the movie), Bittersweet and Hujan contribute a number of songs to the soundtrack, making the foursome’s exploits all the more appealing.Directors Effendee Mazlan and Farina Azlina Isahak, the same people behind hit series Gol & Gincu, have done pretty well with KAMI: The Movie, plucking out a talented cast who each bring an authentically heartfelt and endearing personality to their characters, and possess none of the “forced acting” apparent in most local productions.
Its an end to my o'so long wait to this movie.ON WEDNESDAY.Spared some of my busy time with Syahira.Amir.Elis.Don and Emir at gsc after school.And yes with baju sekolah. ill be missing my baju sekolah as this year shall be my last as an adolescent in sekolah menengah. When we all watched the rest were all so bengong and lost because they have never followed KAMI the series last year before .The only one who actually is and am a dearful fan was me and syahira.We had to explain a couple of things to them but we dont mind. During the movie i felt so touch,loved and warm by the cast Adii,Lyn,Sofie,Ali and my mcsteamy in KAMI Abu[it reminds me of last year as i felt so related to this independent film i noticed the movie is more to Lyn,Ali and Abu as their problem,past and habits came back to haunt them.Believe it or not i end up crying at the end. is the most heartbreaking and loya buruk'ess way of dying as Abu's character in KAMI. IT WAS AWESOME AND SAD.
KAMI.makes me feel related.it shows tht adolescent life is not all smile and laughter after all.
theres always the shame and crying moments that we all go through.
it makes me feel that i am not the only one who goes through crappy pain and yet
we sober it up with friends doing fun and crazy things
that would makes us laugh,cranked up and feel good.
as kids we grow up to keep are mind full with pain and lovable
memories to learn and remind us.
because that is all we get in life.
we are reminded and though to do right things, well that have never stop any of us youngsters.
For me friendship is family.they never fail to let u down and make u feel crappy
they can create pain,what is a relationship between friends without it.
u go through it by forgive and forget.
we attend to keep secretes dark and shamful onces. but one way or another it will be burst.
but we attend to go through the problems together.
as we know
"HIDUP INI MEMANG PALAT, TAPI ESOK MASIH ADA"
"LIFE IS SO USELESS,BUT THERES ALWAYS TOMOROW"
