Sumo-lah


What Is It?
The must-watch feel good Malaysian movie. This is esteemed comedian Afdlin Shauki's first "solo baby" - he's directing, producing and starring in it. Estimated release date is Feb 2007 (possibly in time for the Oscar evaluation). Ok, who am I kidding? In time for Chinese New Year... which falls on 18th Feb next year.

Inthira Charoenpura : Siti

Special appearance by

What's The Story About?
Ramlee (Afdlin Shauki) is a down and out Malay boy who can’t seem to hold down a job, much to his Mother’s (Azean Irdawaty) disappointment. Out of a job and out of money, he stumbles across a challenge by sushi restaurant owner Honda (Patrick Teoh) to “eat all you can for free food – within a time limit”.

Hungry and desperate, Ramlee attempts the challenge, and fails. In compensation, Honda lets Ramlee take a job at the restaurant to pay off his due. Ramlee becomes a member of the Boleh Sushi shop staff, along with Harith (Awie) and Andy (Radhi Khalid).

Ramlee is immediately attracted to Honda’s beautiful daughter, Siti (Intira Charoenpura), who is half-Japanese and half-Malay. He begins to learn the meaning of having good work, good friends and family...

Then comes the Karate Kid moment... except this one has more carbs and packs more pounds. It promises to be a big-sized comedy. He will learn of the values of relationship and trust. The plot thickens with a few more twists in the story which, to be fair, you'd have to watch to find out!
