Great!
21 March 2009 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

This movie easily grab my attention to watch. I love the main idea and Yasmin did well for this movie. I've seen her works, Mokhsin and Gubra, both cannot compete with this one. This movie is one of the best in Malaysia cinema and one should watch this. Yasmin give an honest view through her film with this one and the last part, i mean the ending is the real large view of what Malaysia cinema can be. Two races from two different races and religion, there is no issue of converting whatsoever but, dark message here is, either hero convert to heroine religion or one of them need to die. This movie is great and it deserved 8 out of 10 stars! Well done Yasmin!
