Bini - Biniku Gangster (2011)

Saturday, October 08, 2011

Okey, the drive for me to watch this movie is the hilarious trailer... Besides that, the lead, Shaheizy Sam has been given quite a publicity since Adnan Sempit... So, I was curious to see how good he is... (Malaysian movie lovers must be rolling their eyes at the fact that this is the first Shaheizy Sam movie I watched... While the Hollywood movie buffs are rolling their eyes at the fact that I dared to watch a Malay movie...) Lalalala...


THE STORY

Manja (Yana Samsudin) and Herry (Shaheizy Sam) were a happy married couple... However, under a camouflage of a good house wife, Manja was actually the leader of one of the most influential local gangster group... Without her husband's knowing, she had been going around bashing people's head to maintain the group's power... Not being able to give birth to a child, Manja granted permission to Herry to take Reanna (Intan Ladyana), his secretary, as his second wife so that he could have the pleasure of having kids in the house... Reanna turned out to be the leader of the opposing gangster group... The conflict between two groups forced those two wives to brawl...



THE PLUS POINTS

Shaheizy Sam & Yana Samsudin

These guys are the cutest pair I've ever seen in a Malaysian movie (maybe because I don't watch Malaysian movies too often)... I love it when they're together especially at the first parts of the movie - the part when Sam cupped Yana's cheeks... They're awesomely cute... I was a bit smitten watching them all mushy and stuff...

I can understand why Malaysians (well, mostly Malays) love this guy... Unlike other Malaysian comedians, he doesn't really rely on slapstick to win laughs from audience... Instead, he just act naturally quirky and he doesn't over do the acting and the jokes... 

Whereas, Yana Samsudin was bad-ass in this movie... She did her action scenes quite smoothly... It's like she's used to it... and seeing her kick some ass in her black skirt was awesome... Besides that, she was kinda good in portraying sadness and conflict in this movie... She gained my sympathy with her depressed look after the hubby kinda abandoned her for the new wife... Sedikit touching di situ... 


Humour

If u're thinking about watching, then bare in mind that this movie was created just for giggles (because Malaysian movie makers are all about comedy)... There were more than a few moments that made me laughed so hard such at the part when Manja and Reanna had a fight in the bedroom and in the kitchen... 




THE MINUS POINTS

Other Cast Members

The most annoying character in this movie for me is the Mat Saja guy... His role was actually small but the producers keep bringing him back into the picture which I think totally unnecessary... Other small characters like Manja's two faithful henchmen were also kinda disposable... They fail to impress me with the jokes... I don't know, maybe other people might laugh at their jokes but I think they're quite lame...

Intan Ladyana is cute and all but... no, she didn't shine as well as Yana Samsudin... Her action moves are also kinda stiff, an indication that action movies are not for her... For what is worth, she did contribute to some of the humour scenes... For example, the naughty kitty in bed scene...


Plot and Story Line

Some scenes were rather redundant such as the parts when Manja was depressed... Besides that. there were too many insignificant scenes were created in the intention to create additional gags... I think that it will be better if they take this movie seriously and focus on how to make it better rather than to make it funnier... But, for Malaysian movie makers, it's all about the money huh? Just saying... :-P


Action

They call this movie an action comedy... Hmm... I totally get the comedy part, but action part needs some improvements... Okey, maybe I'm over analyzing... However, it's all a part of reviewing... The action scenes were horrible and out of place... Luckily, they're quite believable thanks to the stunt men who managed to deliver some awesome manoeuvres... Shiah!! Kudos also for Yana Samsudin for being a bad-ass... Damn, the skirt and boots are cute...


ALL IN ALL

The above review is me being optimistic about Malaysian movies... Yes, if u want to compare this movie with those Hollywood made flicks, then it still has a long way to go... However, if u would want to compare it with other Malaysian movies, I say that this movie is not bad... Not bad at all... I quite enjoy it mostly because of the humour and not the action... Besides that, Sam and Yana... They're really cute...
