I have a thing for murder mysteries and this film did not disappoint. The very raw emotions that B. Palarae showed in this film made him a convincing madman in the making. The characters Pak Abu and Sitti provided the veil of mystery which was about to unfold in the resort island. And the message of Nam Ron with the washing of the hearts is really mind boggling.

Raw and gripping portrayals by renowned Malaysian actors B. Palarae and Sharifa Amani! This psychological thriller maximizes the use of light and shadows to effectively communicate a story to the viewers.  While the flick may have not been received enthusiastically by the local audience it is worthy enough to be played and hopefully be noticed in international film fests.  Commendable cinematography and performances of the support cast was impressive.  Do check this out folks!

  • The story is riveting and presented in Agatha Christie style and more. The central figure, the writer, connects both to the victims and the killer as well. Kudos to Nam Ron for presenting a brilliant thriller!
