Not long ago, I wrote something about Namewee’s Nasi Lemak 2.0. I wrote about his easy access to see Pak Menteri Nazriwee and how he can get away in promoting his 1Malaysia, better Malaysian for future generation so-called movie. It was a so ‘patriotic’ movie that most ‘Australian born Malaysian and somehow most migrating Malaysian in other countries’ had a long queue waiting and wanting to buy the cinema tickets. Read here. The controversial movie was eventually released in Malaysia and nothing dreadful things happen. Namewee cool, Nazriwee pleased and other Malaysian also happy.
Recently, there was this yet-to-be-released movie entitled ‘Tanda Putera’ that sparked an issue which is quite similar with the Nasi Lemak. But this time, it was a Malaysian history movie spinning around on the tragedy of 13th May 1969 and is directed by a Malay (a talented Shumi Baba – remember Maya’s Pontianak?). Again, the local and the ‘Australian born Malaysian and somehow most migrating Malaysian in other countries’ made fuss on the illicit and explicit contents of the movie with intention to make it fail, big time. Words were going around and mStar reported on July 19 that the movie’s release would be delayed to an unspecified date. The genuine story of the tragedy was not truly reflected, they said?? Mmm.... reflected my ass!! It will only be reflected if the story of any story is directed and casted by the ‘Australian born Malaysian and somehow most migrating Malaysian in other countries’. After all, the movie has been 30% ‘discounted’ by Dato’ Rais sampai logo 55 tahun Merdeka pun dah tersilap tampal. You won’t see the whole story pun, jangan la risau. Takkan ada pekikan-pekikan ‘Malay Si, ‘lancau’ dsbgnya cos’ most of it has been censored. Then, why want to delay the release of this movie? Kenapa la nak jaga hati sangat the ‘Australian born Malaysian and somehow most migrating Malaysian in other countries’ tu? Bak kata Leman Raja Lawak... “tak paham aku??”
Release, release, release in full as what the majority wants it (rather than concentrating in Bishop Ng Moon Hin or Dong Zong minority’s demands). No more carrot and time to ply the stick.
P/s – Dunno which one is genuine now, but yang Hana Tajima's look-a-like tu so damn cute..
