Good Continuation to Labu & Labi
18 January 2007 | by (Brunei Darussalam) – See all my reviews

Nasib Si Labu Labi is the continuation to the other popular film (in the Malay speaking region anyway) Labu & Labi. The film's general theme is the passing away of Haji Bakhil's wife. For those not in the know, this is the heroes' Labu & Labi's boss, lord-and-master, and also father to (secret) love of their lives.

The film is basically sub-divided into two parts. The first part concentrates on the story of the feuding of Labu & Labi after discovering that they have been lusting for none other than the same woman in Manisah, daughter of Haji Bakhil. The feud culminates in the boxing scene between Labu & Labi. Surprisingly they make up after the boxing scene and do not lust after Manisah anymore.

The second part of the film focuses on the now-widower Haji Bakhil undergoing a (all-too common) mid-life crisis and falling in love with a teacher from the local orphan school, Cikgu (i.e. Teacher) Murni.

As with Labu & Labi in the Nightclub modelling scene, the film could have been made shorter by about 15-20 minutes without the unnecessary modelling sketch (again??), but apart from that this is pure P Ramlee comedy.

Mohd Zain again illustrates (as he did in Labu & Labi) the great chemistry with P Ramlee with his over the top style and voice, to counteract P Ramlee's more relaxed nature. The film also would not succeed without Udo Omar's Haji Bakhil, who magically transforms from sad widower losing his wife, to a man (wearing shorts even!) with a new lease of life.

Brilliant cameos from the Bujang Lapok gang of S Shamsuddin and Aziz Sattar, plus the unforgettable scene with Cikgu Murni's father (in Labu's own words) 'Pak Haji Kementot', played by the excellent Ibrahim Pendek. How often have we been in that situation where the elderly just babble on and on without giving us a chance to speak, and out of respect, we have to just remain quiet? A good continuation to Labu & Labi, and a good ending to the Labu & Labi series.
