Hello hello hello everyone, and Assalamualaikum to all the Muslim people. I am so happy today, hahaha. I'm not sure, but my cousin said to me that "Amboi senyum melebar sampai telinga" hahaha. Why am I happy eh? Shhhhh it's a secret hahaha. By the way, I've been went to the near cinema at MBO U8 Space in Shah Alam *my hometown*. I went there together with my little sister and with two female cousins. As we hang-out, everything were on my cousin treats. I did not pay anything even any penny, everything including the dinner, popcorn, ticket and even transport were on her treats.
Well, we were watching "Instanbul Aku Datang" it's a romantic Malay movie. Totally two thumbs up for this movie. We were really enjoyed the movie. Actually for the first time my cousin asking me if I would like to watch "Instanbul Aku Datang", I was totally don't interested at all but still I was agree of them. It was because 3 versus 1. Why am I not interested for the first time? Well, it was because I thought that this romantic movie will be just same as other romantic Malay movie. One thing I don't like about Malay romantic-comedian is that the characters tend to try so hard to be funny and romantic in a very spastic and exaggerated way. But after I watched this movie, it's totally different. Auw, I was crying in that cinema actually. Truly two thumbs up. The actors and actresses in this movie are very subtle and relaxed in their performance, thus making the story believable, looks real and life.
The storyline is not cliche. It has its own twists, though not overly drama. This suits the overall feel of such a romantic comedy drama.Well, the cast: Lisa Surihani, Tomok, Beto Kusyairy, Aizat Hamdan ; they are all really superb, they played their roles totally well and great. In all, a wonderful "mesti tonton" (must watch) film to those who love such genres movies, doesn't matter your language. Truly two thumbs up. And of course credits to be given to the director and the scriptwriter too right?
Hey, should I write the synopsis? I think it would be interesting to share the story of this movie to all of you who've not watching it yet, right?
Instanbul Aku Datang tells the story of a ditzy but kind hearted blogger girl named Dian, who travels to Instanbul, with one purpose: to get her boyfriend to put a ring on her finger! to propose her!To achieve her goal, she studied in the same college with her boyfriend, Azad. Azad looks like a man who is very kind hearted and religious. He's also looks really suspicious and slightly nerd. Dian boyfriend's grows increasingly distant from her, and she is forced to find her own place to stay as Azad said it's not nice if people know a girl staying in the bachelor's house. She find a home with help of a new friend that she did even not know his name. She is looking for a cheap house, near to Azad house and the most important is no housemate. She is cheated by the new friend with unknown name. She has to staying with annoying Haris because she has no money to find another place as she has been paid deposit money home rental for 3 months. Although the two begin to rub each other up the wrong way, Haris slowly starts to hold a soft spot in her heart, and Dian must choose between the two men in her life.
Should I tell you who's the guy she choosing? hahaha. No? Yes? Nah, maybe no. Go and watch it by yourself okay?
Actually I don't really like Lisa Surihani because her acting sucked from the movie Aku Masih Single, Ombak Rindu and Semerah Cinta Stilleto. But i do likes her physically. Since watching this movie, I truly admiring her even I am a girl. Well, to those fashionistas out there must be really love Lisa in this movie because of her colourful skirts and dresses, matched with skinny jeans and leggings.Together with her fabulous high heels, hair bandages and ribbons with simple make-up and her glossy lip gloss, truly cute to the extreme.
Tomok, nah I don't really like Tomok acting skill, he's too wimpy but good try. Beto was also kinda wimpy but he has a reason to acted on that way, his characters as an artist required him to act a bit gay-lish maybe? The chemistry between Lisa and Beto are really something to praise about. I think Lisa really good to acts together with Beto not Farid Kamil. I did enjoyed by watching them together especially during the silent scooter ride and the hair washing. To show emotions and dialogs without saying anything is something what the korean said as "daebak" and that's totally only a few actors can do it. Auw, truly romantic babe. The dialogue bubbles and blog draft that popped up, I really love it.
The funny part of the movie when Lisa stealing Maggi Asam Laksa belonging to Haris, without asking Haris permission. Seriously funny. It's a brilliant idea about the Maggi Asam Laksa since there's no Maggi Asam Laksa at Instanbul. Actually I just knew that Maggi Asam Laksa can get only in Malaysia. Maggi Asam Laksa is my favourite flavour actually.
All I can say is this movie are truly awesome. I'll give it 4 and half of 5 stars. You must watch it. Until here, babai !
