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.
