Adam is a Muslim medical practitioner who is unable to accept the fact that his wife is no longer in this world. Later on, he agrees to treat a depressed woman named Maria but strange and unsettling things start to happen.
Adil, a young Muay Thai kick-boxer, has just fled an honor fight-to-the-death. Ilham, an assassin who is also Adil's stepbrother, is promptly hired by the organizer of the death match to kill the fugitive. Looking for somewhere to hide and recover, Adil and a childhood friend take shelter in the Bunohan boxing club where Adil started his career. Ilham, meanwhile, has never been back to Bunohan since the day he left many years ago. Upon returning, memories of loneliness and abandonment flood his mind, and he experiences waves of resentment and regret. Bakar, the third brother, has also come home from the city; ostensibly a respectful schoolteacher, he is in reality a greedy and ruthless person, and is trying to convince his father to sell a burial ground to a construction company.Written by
To be honest, I never enjoyed watching Malay movie as the story of them are quite boring. But this movie is against all of them.
I saw the movie at premium show. It was good. The plot is nice, actors are well chosen. In terms of cinematography it is quite interesting, the angels are nice. It shows truly Malaysian village life. If you would have a chance to live in Malaysia, this movie totally makes sense. I liked the flow of the story and the way Dain, the director, directed this movie.
On the downside, There is lots of dialog could have removed. Some shots are long, IMHO. The fight scenes are OK. As a person always enjoy martial arts movie, I expected actors while having fights, they would have battle more aggressive. I liked those fighting scenes anyway.
