 ” LAGENDA BUDAK SETAN 3 : KASYAH ” (2014)

Malaysian Movie Review

Some time ago, in late November 2011, during the media screening of Ombak Rindu, I perchance met SHARAD SHARAN who was then the producer for that particular film.

Curiosity made me ask SHARAD “Do you have plans to direct a good, solid piece of Asian movie extolling family values in the near future?”

“Soon!” came his swift reply.

And in less than  2 .5 years down the road, he is now the film director of the successful “LAGENDA BUDAK SETAN” trilogy.

No, I have not seen part 1 and 2, so my FILM REVIEW of part 3 stands strictly on its own merits.

Here’s my REVIEW :

I did read somewhere about human pains. We have all gone through different kinds of pains at some point in our lives.

The greatest pain should be that of unrequited love.

A person can live for love. Or die from Love.

To be so in love is heavenly bliss. To be rejected is living hell.

This is the basis of “LAGENDA BUDAK SETAN” the Movie.

I can comprehend the physical abuse and mental torture that one gotten from unrequited love, wife battery and assault. The experience can be terrifying.

“LAGENDA BUDAK SETAN 3 : KASYAH” boldly glorifies this action.

You name it, they have it here. The domestic violence is unimaginable and shockingly brutal.

Here’s how Part 3 starts:

Pretty boy Kasyah (Farid Kamil) loses his beloved wife and daughter. He is now reduced to a guilt-stricken wreck, wallowing in self-pity.

Eventually he realizes that if he were to continue carrying his burden of pain, his family and loved ones would all be affected by his negative vibes.

So Kasyah decides to start life afresh with lovely Kate who has always been there for him, through thick and thin, only if he remains a one-woman’s husband.

Kashah now works as a freelance photographer to support his adopted daugher Athirah.

However his family bliss is short-lived.  Kate`s insane ex-husband (Bront Palarae) now returns from the asylum to taunt her.

Meanwhile Kasyah’s old flame(Ayu Raudhah) wants him back, which adds to the family confusion incurring her jealous husband (Iqram Dinzly)’s wrath.

The physical violence he metes upon his wife serves as a severe lesson in committing adultery. It is just too stressful to watch.

“LAGENDA BUDAK SETAN 3: KASYAH” is a both haunting and a heartbreaking film with a powerful vocal soundtrack performed by Yuna.

On the whole, the film is subtly written and superbly directed.

Film director Sharad Sharan has delivered a neat and powerful piece that will astound the audience. Kudos.

Footnotes:

Lead Actor FARID KAMIL and lead actress MAYA KARIN share an affable chemistry together.

But it is the supporting ensemble cast IQRAM DINZLY, BRONT PALARAE and AYU RAUDHAH who steal the thunder from the leads.

Of all pains, the greatest pain is to love, but love in vain.

 RATING: 3.5 out of 5
