Once upon a time there's Hang Tuah
23 October 2000 | by abdulhakimSee all my reviews

Hang Tuah was a legendary Malay admiral who lived under Malacca Sultanate in 15th Century. Some may regard him as hero but others just call him a malicious and cold hearted warrior. This film described him as the former and treated him as everybody's favourite. At the time P. Ramlee who acts as Hang Tuah was also everybody's favourite and the film fares well among the movie goers.

The film was made in color where most of films at that time are in black and white. A good film...as this movie was directed by an Indian director, expect a few songs sung by P.Ramlee and Saloma...it was done ala Bollywood movies.
