Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa or The Kedah Annals is an ancient Malay literature that chronicles the bloodline of Merong Mahawangsa and the foundation of the Kedah, a state in Malaysia. Though there are historical accuracies, there are many incredible assertions. The era covered by the text ranged from the opening of Kedah by Merong Mahawangsa, allegedly a descendant of Alexander the Great of Macedonia till the acceptance of Islam.
The main idea here is not about the historical story that been long gone.
Maybe when we just doing our reading, the understanding must be hard to imagine due to the different surrounding and era. So, with the Great and Outstanding effort by KRUbros, the epic now being shared.
Even i'm not cinema addict, but Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa filled my spacious time. From the start until fin, my eyes can excellently focus on the wide big screen and i ENJOYED.
This movie, from my point of view, can change the perception towards the Malay movies.
I felt ALIVE when i saw the movie, any each second seems full of excitement.
The title itself "HIKAYAT MERONG MAHAWANGSA" had shown how powerful the story and the plot is.
Its not only about the Langkasuka, but the combination of various countries like Rome, Goa and China made it so internationally.
I really adore the scene when they had a battle with the BAD GUYS
and i give 5 STARS not only to the movie but also the BORS..
i hope that in the future, they will serve many splendid, powerful and great movies and improve the malay productions.
HIGH RISK HIGH RETURN =)
