Bravo Fachry

In early 2007 a movie was made based on a book written by Moammar Emka, “Jakarta Undercover”. This book peeled out the night life in Jakarta. It was a best selling book in 2000s. You are one of the readers, aren’t you?

A bunch of Indonesian celebrities took part in this movie, namely Luna Maya, Lukman Sardi, and Fachri Albar. Luna Maya (Vicky), I think her acting was not bad, even not really good as well. But I do believe, she played a sexy role as a stripper for her life and his young brothers. You should see how she moved her body around a bar, rolled her eyes, and showed her tongue.

I was disappointed by Lukman Sardi. His previous movies such as Mengejar Matahari (running toward the sun) and Berbagi Suami (sharing husband) showed that he was a promising actor. In this movie, all I noticed was his yucky lines. Frequently he said fu**, sh**, and many more words of rubbish. When those were said by western actors I think it was so natural but by him it was silly and ridiculous (“NGGA BANGET”). It makes me sick to watch him. What a fu**ing role!

In contrast, the most stunning performance was done by Fachri Albar (Amanda). His role was a transsexual stripper and a best buddy of Vicky. I think he succeeded to emerge in his character. His gesture was amazing. Look at how he threw his hair and how he sat. FANTASTIC!! I did not even notice he was as a macho man in a real world. Bravo Fachri!!

Notes:
For Indonesians, I do know it is not a new movie, but it is for me.

Hi there Bakh... sorry, but here in Portugal we have no ideia of indonesian movies.
Starting to get know from chinese, korean, japanese movies.
But I believe you.
On you post about skin cancer when I wrote about Foster's I was thinking on the australian beer by that name (but now I'm not quite sure I should have done that).
By the way, been having some holiday yourself?

belom nonton..
belom baca bukunya juga..

tp saya yakin akting Luna Maya sebagus apapun, yah, masih standard2 aja.. samalah penilaianku sama om Bakhri..

kalo soal Lukman Sardi..
hah? serius dia ngucapin kata2 itu..?
hmmmm.. memang sih Jkt Undercover tuh -katanya..- bener2 ngelihatin gimana kehidupan malam kota Jkt..
tp mgkn alangkah lbh bagusnya kalo 'ambil' aktor yg pas ya, om..
jadi gak terkesan maksa..

Fachry Albar aktingnya bagus..?
hmmm... jadi penasarannn..
soalnya aku blum pernah nemuin aktingnya yg bener2 'nampol'..

btw, sok2 komen aja nih aku..
yah, namanya jg kacamata org awam..
silahkan kalo para komentator2 sejati punya penilaian yg berbeda.. ;)

Jakarta Undercover?? Ga nonton seh, cuman lumayan lah.... ada cerita yang beda dari film2 indonesia sekarang yang kebanyakan bertema horror2 ga jelas. semua jenis hantu dipake jadi judul film, mulai dari suster ngesot, pocong, kuntilanak, sampe gundoruwo.

Akh.... PH yang punya oranmg india itu emang nyebelin:(
