The players: Director: Ahmad Idham Cast: Mazlan Ahmad, Shaheizy Sam, Cat Farish, Lisa Surihani, Zarina, Dina and Mas Muharni
Facts of interest: Lisa Surihani plays the lead and first antagonist character.
The plot: Three youths who each received a letter from the late Pak Sudir inviting them to his house and they would have to stay at his house for three days straight without touching anything, especially an old congkak.
Iszaham's thoughts: Today is "Jangan Pandang Belakang Congkak" opening day 4th June, 2009. I get the change to watch the new horror comedy produced by Metrowealth this morning 11.30 a.m with company of my friends. "JPBC" is directed by non-other Ahmad Idham (one of my favourite Malaysia's director). "JPBC" is not a sequel installment of "Jangan Pandang Belakang" (2007) and "Congkak" (2008), which previously directed by Ahmad Idham.
"Jangan Pandang Belakang Congkak" tells the story of three youths who each received a letter from the late Pak Sudir inviting them to his house. Upon arrival, they met up with Pak Sudir's helper Mustika and discovered that he was their grandfather and the three of them have the potential to inherit all of his belongings, but under strict circumstances. They would have to stay at his house for three days straight without touching anything, especially an old congkak. On the first night itself, strange things begin to happen.
I think "JPBC" storyline is amazingly will written, it contain the element of humour most of time. "JPBC" sure will capture a number of people's attention with its elements of humour. Before the character of Mazlan Pet Pet (Punai), Shaiheizy Sam (Johan) and Cat Farish (Asmat) changed to "Orang Minyak", "Hantu Raya" and "Toyol", the humour started show-up because each character sing and dance with different and hilarious movement.
I agree with Ahmad Idham who cast Lisa Surihani, to plays a beautiful and facial expressions speech of Mustika. Her bring up Mustika's character to life. Since the beginnig of the story, we can saw how scary and serious expressions speech Lisa Surihani bring to her character. I think she was amazingly brilliant. Besides Lisa Surihani look beautiful in every scene except at the end of the story (because she turn into ghost).
I'm also noticed a newcomer Mas Muharni, who plays Wawa (Cat Farish love interest). She character kind is sweet-honest gadis melayu and I'm totally enjoy watched her, but she still need of much improvement in her acting skill (hoping she act in other movie soon).
Surely I would buy the original dvd "JPBC" when come out in market. For those who haven't watch yet, go your near by cinema and watched this humour and laughter movie of "JPBC".
