Our take

Directed by Mahadi J. Murat, this sumptuous masterpiece probes into the trials and tribulations of the Malay community in the early days of independence. Revolving around a family who embodies the national spirit and tradition of the Malays, the film boasts a mesmerizing performance from Sidi Oraza.
