bad Tiara star-vehicle (should have been so much more)
3 September 2004 | by (PJ) – See all my reviews

i was disappointed. i very much wanted to like this film as i'd like to hope high for Malaysian films. first the good - m nasir was very good. he met my expectation and handled a tedious script to his very best. sofia jane was excellent. if the stories that jaquelina instructed the removal of lots of jane's scenes are true (to take out screen "competition"... jaquelina co-produced this with her husband) then it is regrettable. it's just a rumor, but one does wonder why an excellent performer and performance ended up so maligned. moving on, the production values are all excellent. great set, nice cinematography, nice costumes... editing style was fine, though the decision to drag it out to 145 minutes was certainly ill-chosen.

now the bad. tiara jaquelina was really not fit to play this role. she is so limited, so one-dimensional and so wooden. she doesn't exude the grace nor the natural beauty demanded of the role, nor does she poses a voice (a bit croaky, isn't it?) to perform lengthy verses of spoken word poetry kinda dialogue and voice over. inevitable that she was the lead actress but deeply, deeply flawed decision for the film.

poor characterisation. didn't feel for them all. m nasir tries and succeeds somewhat to elicit a response from me but the rest of the leading cast are all cardboards. i'll blame the scriptwriter for this. just too much screen time for everyone but the film doesn't work hard enough to develop character, narrative and a love for the world. it's so easy already because everything's in place: great set, great story, great characters. in the end it just became a bad tiara star vehicle.

that's why i'm so disappointed.
