Review By Nur Safina Othman
Upon watching "Kecoh Betul" directed by S. Baldev Singh, it seems that his movie is very similar to Aminah Rhapor's "Lu Pikirlah Sendiri de Movie" (LPSdM). It carries the same main actor in the form of Nabil and also elements of 'rempit'. Being an 'ex-rempit' himself, director Baldev naturally slotted in that component.
It tells the story of three best buddies - Aiman (Nabil), Joe (Bell Ngasri) and Belon (Shah R.), who works as fast food delivery boys in the city. Problems crop up as they failed to settle the debts they owed loan sharks, resulting in the kidnapping of Aiman's girlfriend Diana (Diana Danielle).
As like "LPSdM", "Kecoh Betul" drags too much to a point where audiences are bound to feel uncomfortable with the jokes and gags that aren't hilarious at all. Moreover, there were several pointless plots in the story where this reviewer believes that the director might be too overconfident in his plot lines.
Frankly, lining up big stars in a movie doesn't prove box office success. It's undeniable that Nabil, Diana Danielle and Saiful Apek will surely attract their fans to the cinema, but unfortunately the actors didn't really shine through this time. Nabil's performance was as monotonous as in "LPSdM" and Diana's acting was equally stiff and disappointing. However, Saiful Apek's mobster boss portrayal and Bell Ngasri's stuttering character was entertaining. Besides that, famous reporter Karam Singh Walia makes a cameo appearance as the owner of the house where the three friends are staying.
Overall, "Kecoh Betul" comes off as dull since elements of 'rempit' and comedy are weaved in our local films too often.
A fantasy movie with fairytale beings battling to keep the world of nature alive.
