“Pisau Cukur - 2009”
I give this movie 3.5 stars. I’m not a fan of Malay movies (except those coming from Afdlin Shauki). The reason that attracted me to watch this movie is the presence of many talented actors (although most of them are just cameo appearance)
Basicly it’s a comedy about two friends Intan and Bella (played by Fazura and Maya Karin), who goes on a cruise vacation. Intan is a tv host while Bella failed to win the heart of a rich guy in a reality show.
Maya Karin and Fazura
This movie is filled with talented line-up. Of course the two main actresses Fazura and Maya Karin, both have won awards at FFM. Others includes Liyana Jasmay (recently on Papadom – Best Female Actress FFM09), and Afdlin Shauki (Best Actor, FFM09 – for the movie Papadom), Aaron Aziz, Eizlan Yusof, Umie Aida, Nas-T & a newcomer Shahredza Minhat.
The story is written by 3R host Rafidah Abdullah, who also made cameo appearances in the movie. She also wrote tv series “Gol & Gincu” which is why the movie has that same style & urban feel.
The CGI used in the movie is nice but there’s still room for improvement. I'm not sure if I say this right, but the movie does look "nice" and "advance" compare to most Malay movies (read Yusof Haslam's movies).
Overall, it's an interesting movie, Fazura really did well (I think this is her first time doing a lead role in a comedy), Maya Karin sweet as always!
