Adapted loosely from Romeo and Juliet, Pekak is a story about a deaf drug pusher Uda whose dream is to get a cochlear implant so that he can finally hear again. When Uda meets and falls in love with Dara, an innocent school girl, he is even more determined to leave the life he's always known for a future with Dara. But will he be able to break free from the vicious ties that bind him or will he be stuck forever in the same bleak existence?Written by
An intriguing view of the lives of Malaysian youth
Knowing that drug dealing (or even possession?)can carry a death sentence in Malaysia, I was surprised to se how easily Odu was able to deal in dope on the streets, and how casually his obnoxious customers tucked into them at their rather dreary looking parties. Also at the way that girls switched from headscarves to ridiculously skimpy miniskirts, and from observing Muslim proprieties to casual sex. Odu was a sympathetic enough character to keep me interested, but I wondered how accurately the film portrayed Malaysian society.
