So, yeah. I went to watch M4M4 (Mama) with my friends after reading rave reviews online.

SYNOPSIS
M4M4 Trivia
  • Directed by: Eyra Rahman
  • Produced by: Mokharul Shamsul Mokhtar
  • Production companies: Da Motion Media
  • Distributed by: Empire Film Solution
  • Running time: 106 minutes
Aini (mother) and Aliya (daughter) live together happily after losing her father. Their bond is more to sisters than mother and daughter, so tight. 

On her 15th birthday, whilst her friends, Elly and Danny plan a celebration, Aliya insisted on coming home early as her mother might have a surprise celebration for her at home. The trio went around town and last, they stopped to have their favorite dishes at a food stall.

There, they were harassed by three addicts - Apai (the pedophile one), Remy (the always high one) and Luk (the effeminate one). Apai was challenged by Remy to harass Aliya as Aliya fits all Apai's boxes for his victim.

Being an independent girl, Aliya puts up a fight when Remy touches her. A fight occurs and Aliya splashes hot soup over Apai when he tries to grab her again. When the stall owner comes at them with a long machete, the notorious trio runs for their lives.

While waiting for the bus home, Danny suddenly realizes that he has to meet a senior at their school and leaves the girl. Elly also has to change her clothes as her period messes her skirt. Alone, Aliya was cornered by the notorious trio - they seek revenge for the hot soup on Apai.

Aliya runs for her life but the trio manages to catch up with her. They beat her and drag her to an empty house where they continue to torture her and take turns raping her. 

Aliya manages to return home - battered, bruised and raped, much to the horror of her mother who was waiting to celebrate her birthday together.

Aini tries to be strong for her daughter - she acts tough and always be there for her. But one can only hold her emotion for such long. And when the emotional barrier breaks, Aini runs amuck that Aliya tries to be strong for her mother instead. 

Then Aliya receives the video of her rape, send by the trio to her. Trying her luck to face the trio and persuade them to delete the video, Aliya ends up almost getting rape for the second time by the evil trio. She puts up a fight and runs for her life. This time around, she jumps over the bridge when cornered by the trio, only later to fall to her death.

When Aliya returns home and goes straight into her room to sleep, Aini did not suspect anything amiss. She denies that her daughter is dead, up until she sees Aliya's body on the morgue's table. 

Will Aini come through her sadness and get justice for Aliya?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.0/ 5.0 The movie was good - for Malaysian standards. It is not lengthy or too 'beautiful'. It depicts the real social problems that we have now with our kids and we might have closed one eye upon. But, there are some very significant discontinuation in the plot that kept me guessing until now.
1) Where did Danny go, when he suddenly excuses himself right after the fight and leave the girls alone?
2) This might have been due to the Director's cut, but how did the police get their conclusion by just looking at photographs and not doing an actual investigation work done?
3) How is Danny related to Tuan Azahari as somehow, Tuan Azahari knows Danny when Danny suddenly appears at Aini's house, at night time?
4) What is Danny doing at Aini's house at night time?

All in all, I applaud Ms Eyra's effort in directing the movie. I hope we get to see more honest movies like this in the future (not about 'projek juta-juta, anak orang kaya kawen dengan orang miskin etc).

Cast: 4.7/ 5.0 GIRL. If you don't cry together with Nabila Huda and Bella while watching the movie, I think you should have your heart and tear ducts check by the specialists. And the evil trio - I really want to spit on their faces when I see them around - they are evil incarnate themselves!

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again.

tapi kalau tengok cerita mom hindustan ada lebih kurang sama dalam cerita ini...mcm rasa penulis skrip ni tulis cerita inspired dari cerita tu...so klu betul ada sedikit keciwa
