Trivia

The shot in Bali is really done in Bali, Indonesia. The tag number on the trucks and cars begin with DK and followed by numbers and two letters. The DK tag number is for vehicle in Bali although one may find vehicles with that tag number in the neighboring island, Lombok, which shares the same culture as Bali. But since Lombok has no zoo, while Bali has, so the elephant used in Bali scene must be from the Taman Safari Zoo in Bali and so the shots took place in Bali. See more »

Elephants cannot sit down as depicted in the movie. The trick was done using a fake elephant's bottom. See more »

What a delight

A centenarian in an elderly home decides to walk out moments they were about to host party for his 100th birthday.

On the surface, how eventful an event could this be? Well you would be surprised. He goes to the bus station and with the little money he had buys a one way ticket out of town. A stranger asks him to look out for his luggage and though he agreed he decided to steal it and little did he know that it was filled with money which made him a wanted man.

From then on, we follow this centenarian who tries to avoid the elderly home who sent for him, the gang who owned the stolen money as well as the police. His action plan: none! He took it a step at a time and the audience were treated to en ever ending hilarious situations all the way to the end.

Clever plot, well made in a way that actually made it somewhat believable (unlike the Hollywood tendency to go way over the top) this was an unexpected treat.
