Both a Visual & Schmaltz fest
17 August 2008 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that the script is barely passable. A thin plot with a super-dramatic storyline that does not flow very well, especially towards the end. However, the lacklustre script aside, this is a throughly engaging film musical. What makes this film tick for me is the presentation: Lovely art direction/set decoration, ravishing costumes and make-ups, appealing musical numbers, good editing, and fine performances by all. In fact, much of characters emotions, feelings & thoughts are effectively reflected in the songs.

If you can overlook the schmaltzy script like I did, you will enjoy this cinematic celebration of Getai, a Singapore cultural event. Or else, you will be put off by the storyline.
