last 2 weeks we went to see hikayat merongwahawangsa
me and kak g
to me i think the sotry is so awesome
start off with scene in GOA, British colony back in the 15oo, so there is this Rom prince who were supposed to marry this Chinese princess for political issues
so the Rom's ship was destroyed by huge waves and they were stuck in GOA, so they asked help from a local GOA businessman to get a ship so that they can set sail to the seas to find the princes. so the local businessman asked for gold as for payment however the Romans lost of their possession during the storm so they had no choice to accept the help from a guy named merong. he is an outcast and fond of making trouble at every port that he sails too. even though so he has very good sailing skills, thus the young prince accepted the offer of sailing through the sea with the help of merong.
at last they came to a no-man's land where the prince and the princess join hands. the princess fear of captivity once she has been married to the prince. she fears that she cant do whatever she wanted to do once she is married to the prince. so she decided to run away into the forest. the prince intercepted her and her hand maiden in the forest, to cover up her plan she decided to pretend to be the handmaiden and the maid is to be the princess.
[i like the part where they were arguing--> so cute!! :) ]
in a long journey they argued about freedom and at last the young prince and the princess had fallen in love. in an unfortunate events, the land was attacked by garuda and the princess was kidnapped. the prince was killed by the garuda and merong was badly injured. in a small village he was revived by the leader and he recovered.
he swore to take revenge on her mother's death at the hands of garuda, so he learned skills from tok pawang and he became the king of the no-man's land.
after a few months came the leiutenent that is responsible too secure the princess, together they decided to take war upon garuda. merong used a tactic of which Archimedes used to defeat garuda
at last they won, however merong had died but the descendent's of merong lived, from embok who impregnated his son. and soon the royal line was succeed after decades.
the story line was impresive, however the graphics were not that good. but this is one of the most awesome malaysian production that we had made. the actors are so good, it made me believe of what i am seeing. stephen-rahman-Hugues was very good!
congrats KRU for making this production! :)
