3 Janda Melawan Dunia [Movie Review]

3 Janda Melawan Dunia [Movie Review] | It has been quite some time since I last watched and reviewed a Malaysian movie. So, for this week, I will be reviewing movies from Malaysia and our neighbouring countries, that are currently showing in the local cinemas. 

3 Janda Melawan Dunia, literally translated as 3 Widows Against the World has attracted me since I saw the trailer. 'This is gonna be one h*ll of comedy ride' I thought to myself when I saw the trailer. 

Did it delivered or did it failed?

In a kampung, lives 3 best friends, who happened to be widows too. They are hardcore fans of Aiman Zalini, a hunk singer. When he announces that he will be retiring from the music industry and will be having his last concert - which will be limited to only 100 of his fans, the trio are ecstatic to get their hands on the tickets. Ani, the youngest in the trio tries the contest to get the special invites and she wins!

When their tickets did not arrived and considered as 'lost in mail' (Datin Martipah has something to do with the 'lost'), the trio has to think hard to earn enough cash to buy the tickets.

An idea comes when they see Amat, a vape-stall owner, is living his best days just by selling vape. When they ask (read: force) for his assistance in starting their own vape business, Amat accidentally shared the secret of him putting some illegal stuff in the flavour of his vape liquid - resulting in him being caught by the police.

Still fixated at the idea of coming up with their own unique vape flavour, the trio roped in Fikri, the boyfriend of Ana - Midah's daughter, to assist them in the formulation of the unique flavor. 

Fikri manages to concoct flavour so unique that most of the drug addicts in their kampung stopped using drug and turn to vaping instead. 

The business is going so well that the drug lord starts to concern about the worrying-dwindling down of the drug demand. He instructed his henchmen to investigate about the low demand of his supply.

Meanwhile, the trio is now facing an issue of trust and honesty among friends too.

Will the trio manages to stay on amidst the rocky situation? What will happen to their business?

Most important question, will they be able to watch the final concert?

Plot: 4.8/ 5.0 The movie is certainly different from the local films that I have watched so far. And it has been quite some time since a local film managed to get me so excited and laughed this hard too.

The plot is simple - but the twists along the movie are the best parts of the movie. The hardship of being a widow, the hardship of doing business and the turmoil of being a good friend and a human being are beautifully portrayed in the movie. 

Cast: 5.0/ 5.0 No, I am not bragging about the cast. Everyone delivered their parts beautifully - even the extras are good too. I even said to Ellyza and Abbas after the movie - they are very good in their delivery!

This has arwah Jasmin's vibes all over it - great plot with great actors! Good job Hyrul Anuar! Please make more movies like this. 

I have to also applaud the beautiful cinematography - it was clean and sleek! The transition for the video clips are just like what the young ones love nowadays. 

The video clips for the songs - MARVELLOUS and TASTEFUL! The songs are catchy and 'sedap didengar' too!

Will I Watch It Again: Yes, I don't mind bringing my friends and family members to watch this. I am sure they will have a fun time just like I did. 

Hey, you should go too! It will totally worth it!
