I just saw PGLM.. it was great!
Thanks Sisterinlaw Ati for the ticket- love you mwah mwah!!!
It was great! I know , I know, we saw it the first time round, and then the second round, so what is so different right. It had a different feel to it. It was more...real. Tighter. Everyone had so much fun or so it seemed. Who knew all those years ago that Ti*ara could sing and dance so gracefully?
In the context of current times, it can be seen as a love story between a Malaysian man and an illegal indonesian woman! And you thought Putrigunungledang was a Johorean...hehehe
I'm sure everyone knows the plot- In case you have been living under a rock- basically this princess lives in her brother's palace, wondering when she is ever going to meet Mr Right. Very idealistic about what love is as you tend to be when you are waiting for it. Not so rosy when say the beras has run out or the rubbish needs to be taken out, eh Tu*ah?
Where was I. Oh yeah. Said brother , deliciously played by ACM*izal, was stressed out as kingdom was going to be attacked by neighbour. In came Sultan Melaka who agreed to send his Chief of Staff to the neighbour to tell them you bomb kingdom, and you get kingdom AND Melaka on your case. For this, Sultan wants the princess. However by this time the Princess has met the Hero and has fallen in mad passionate love with him and was SOO Angau with him that she threw caution to the wind to go to Gunung Ledang to wait for him to come back from his mission. Her logic- he once told her that that is where love springs eternal or something like that. (Forgive me if this is all wrong but there were some parts I could not make out and had to look at the english translation (which was beautifully done)) How's that for girl power, eh. Although my mom would have called it gedik! Or perigi carik timba. Pulak tu takda SMS masa tu- how was he going to know lah? Hehehe.! -
So off she went to this mountain waiting for him and he is blissfully unawarelah of course. And she waits and she waits (hmm sounds familiar this story). In the meantime chaos ensued in Maj*apa*it as they realised the Princess has run away to be with her bf - angry, the King chased after her. Suddenly they cut to the scene where the Sultan called for the Hero and then sent him to the Gunung to propose to her. I'm thinking- eh how did he know lah she was on top of the Gunung? Hero thought- what the hey, she's HERE? and I'm supposed to do what?? Anyways he went off with 7 of his merry men and they danced their way through the hantus in the Hutan Gunung Ledang - I would have cut out the dancing as that would make it a heck of a lot scarier. Nothing too scary about 7 dancing nenek kebayans.
FINALLY he found her and she is soo happy and thought he came for her until the 7 other guys caught them almost making out , and blurted out the real reason they were there. Yalah, kan, penat je fight nenek kebayans etc then you tell me you don't want to kawin?? She was devastated because a minute ago they were all over each other.(not really but I AM SUCH A PRUDE because I could not sit through the touchy feely scenes between the Princess and the Hang tuah - which I guess would be totally natural given that they were so in lurve- but since this was Melaka Melayu and Jawa, er, macam seganler to watch) . Anyway where was I, she was devastated although come to think of it, he was only being the typical MAN- between WORK and the WOMAN , he'd choose the Boss lah, apa lagi..(and this is not because Hubby is on call AGAIN hehehe) . Esp now tengah zaman gawat nih....hehehe
Anyways she set all sort of conditions for the Sultan and he MET them (I'd go with this one, girl, he walks the talk) and was about ready to KILL his son to fulfil the last wish when she came blazing in to say Noooo was only kidding of COURSE i don't want you to kill your son I thought you'd be less dense than THIS ! or something like that. hehehe she then begged and begged to be let free from the promise and please can she stay on the Mount? These illegal immigrants tsk tsk. (sorry I keep ruining it I loved the show really!) Then he banished her to the Mount. Last scene - she left the Mount and Tuah came running up (late again, Tuah) and she was with him although I think he could not see her.
Why I loved it. It was soo romantic.....
What I would change about it- Ha*ngTua*h to be more macho. Less pining. SRH the hero was macho and sings so well it brought goosebumps but sometimes he could not deliver on the depth of his pain.
Ok lah enough review. I had a good time, and wish ada lagi ticket ! Nak bawak Hubby pulak !
