Storyline

The story starts with Izzah, an orphan girl who lost both parents due to road accident. Thereafter, her uncle, Taha, took her in. Taha's wife was not happy with Izzah's presence and accused her of bring bad luck to the family. At the same time, Taha's debts were unmanageable and he decided to sell Izzah to a nightclub owner. At the nightclub, Izzah befriended a client named Hariz. Hariz bought Izzah from the nightclub owner with a high price to take her out of that hell hole. Upon Izzah's request, Hariz agreed to marry her, with the condition that everything must be kept secret. The presence of Mila Amylia, the daughter of Tan Sri Rashdan, a famous model and actress, eventually shook Izaah's and Hariz's happy marriage. Written by Asraf Hashim

At least its a better quality cliché
13 January 2012 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I would have to say that this film contains the common cliché that most Malay or Hindi films have. For that, the director is not to blame because this film is based on a novel. But the directors did a great job at choosing the right talent for the 2 main casts and that stops me from watching it half way.

Aaron Aziz & Maya Karin did a wonderful job playing their roles. Their convincing and realistic acting makes me forget that the plot is similar to most Hindi films. Unfortunately, the rest of the casts are such a contrast that it can become comedic when its not supposed to be so.

Another area I would like to compliment is the beautiful cinematography. The choice of scenic locations just adds on to enjoyment of this film. Unfortunately, the close-up cameras reminded me of the awful sinetron that my grandma loves to watch.

Sorry but I cannot stop commenting until I get to mention about the most irritating part. What the hell is wrong with the soundtrack? First of, it is too loud!! And secondly, why the hell does the soundtrack keeps repeating itself? Why keeps repeating the same loud song over and over again? Why Why Why??

This film is not without its flaws (and there are a lot of them especially the part where Izzah was about cry even before the news mentions her husband's name) but Aaron Aziz & Maya Karin performance is the reason why I am able to watch it the whole way through.
