BULI BALIK Collection first three days RM 490 000. Thanks to you guys.

Just got back from the NORTH (Utara) for the BULI BALIK promotional tour and finally back to my awesome home streamyx broadband wi-fi internet connection. Aaaahhhh! heaven is a place called the internet. Not that there is no internet connection up NORTH but kat hotel sana, it's a wee bit expensive-lah for a dial-up connection.
Me and AC MIZAL travelled to Alor Star (or as it is affectionately known as Aloq Staq), Kedah and did a promo thingy at a cinema there and met up with i think about 50 people, mostly kids, at the metrowealth cinema - i swear we were like dua penjual kain batik tersohor but it was fun. Met up with a major kodok up north ZICKEYSSS. Then we went to Sungai Petani and the crowd was a bit bigger, i think it was about 150 people. The very next day we hit Penang. First venue bukit JAMBUL, the complex itself was empty because of chinese new year but the cinema was quite packed. Then we went to Prangin Mall where we pretended to be Cinema cleaners at the end of the movie and started chasing people out of the cinema complaing aloud about how dirty the cinema is. The Audience were shocked to find out that it was us and we all had a good laugh. I would just like to say now that AC MIZAL is Insane cow!!... what a star. He truly is a funny human being and we are all blessed to be able to share his talent. Lastly we went to MEGAMALL PRAI cinemas where we entertained aboout 250 people. Met an old school mate from st. john's ther , Raja Azmir... what a blast from the past that one. Looking at him, i remember the days when we took the 270 Len Seng bus from Bangunan Arab-Libya near the AIA building to go home to taman Permata, Ulu Kelang. We used to laugh and laugh all the time about everything from ponteng sekolah to bukak puasa on the bus sambil korek hidung to kena rotan beramai-ramai etc.. He was always a funny and nice guy at school and pleasingly still is, up till today, but maybe a bit more matured and weathered. I think, i realised then how much i missed the simple uncomplicated life of a student (although we didn't think it was so UNCOMPLICATED at that time) and the innocence of our hopes and aspirations. Nice to catch up with people who was once a great big part of your life once in a while i guess - It sort of gives a reality check doesn't it.
Tomorrow the BULI BALIK circus will be going to SEREMBAN TERMINAL ONE at 12.30 pm and the following day, off to Malacca and Johore. We are giving this movie all that we got because WE BELIEVE in it. WE BELIEVE besides just being a movie, BB has something big to say.
You know guys, i am a very open person and as you can see from the comments, whatever is written (unless it's truly offensive) i will not delete eventhough it is given by a non entity like ANONYMOUS.
i can only hope and pray that we become a society that is not afraid of standing up for what we believe in and are unafraid to be accountable for it. STOP BEING ANONYMOUS. REPRESENT YOUR VIEWS WITH YOUR IDENTITY. THAT IS THE WAY OF AN HONOURABLE PERSON. If you read from the comments from my previous blog there were a few anonymous comments given but this one comment reeally cheesed me off and no, it wasn't the comment which said "watched buli balik last night,my friend beside me (in the cinema after about 30min ) whispered 'somebody please shoot me'.. I dont like it." I thought that was honest and i respected it. BUT what really MADE MY BLOOD GO UPSTAIRS is a comment by really BLUR Anonymous blog reader/commenter who said...

Anonymous said...
" .... besides Siti Nurhaliza and a few other people who are just talent .... "
what does this sentence really mean? siti is just an ordinary talent? true it may be but talent by itself will get her no where with hard work and "tidak cakap besar" like some good director in the making !


now read what i actually wrote in the blog below
"Lemme let all of you in on one open industry secret that might shock you, besides Siti Nurhaliza and a few other people who are just talents (great talents though they may be) in this industry, NO other persons in the creative field of the entertainment industy in MALAYSIA ever makes any good money from it"
WTF???.... Anonymous whoever u are... U have obviously missed the point. Plus, didn't u care to read the following statement "GREAT TALENTS THOUGH THEY MAYBE!!!" did i say, SITI is not a hard worker?... dude, i know she works hard!!... I am in the industry! We all know, that's why she is who she is right now! besides being her friend, I have much respect for her and her achievements. And your cukup lawa comment " TIDAK CAKAP BESAR macam some good director in the making!" was that suppose to hurt my feelings???...heehee. If it was, then all i can say is....People who know me know i am not that kind of person. so the question now is, LUUU SAPAAAAA?... gua takde duit nak makan nasi, lu nak kasi gua ke? Gua mati nanti, lu nak masuk kubur dengan gua ke? so why should i care what u say... why should anyone care? And besides that, the best part is, lu ANONYMOUS jadi lu tak really serious nak tahu "what the sentence really mean!" Did you really want to know or is it just part of your initation for
i would like to apologize to all my blog readers right now for YOUR STUPIDITY. May time bestow upon you great wisdom so that u may not live the rest of your life, LOST.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE

AFDLIN SHAUKI

PS. Selamat menyambut awal muharram too all my muslim fans and a happy chinese new year to all celebrating it.

Afdlin,
I went to the sneak preview of Buli Balik at One Utama the other day (organized by Sultan Muzaffar). To be honest, it wasn't my cup of tea.

Nonetheless, I went to watch Baik Punya Cilok (BPC) the next day and I think it was very good. A good effort indeed. Funny and rich in character development. Much much better than Buli Balik.

Perhaps I'll write a review in my blog if I have time.

bro, kesian ekk budak2 sekarang ada problem nak paham ayat. belum habis cakap dah buat conclusion. mungkin diorang dyslexic kut yang sepatutnya register diri diorang sendiri sebagai orang kurang upaya.

If you're reading Dilbert's (a syndicated comic strip by Scott Adams) Blog, then you'd declare yourself a knockout, simply because that person missed the point and created another point yang tak ada kaitan...here's an excerp

"...The problem with debates on the Internet is that there’s no objective way to judge who won – no equivalent of a knockout. In fact, there's not even a word that means knockout when you’re talking about an exchange of ideas. But there should be. I recommend using the word “knockout.”

I always consider myself a winner by knockout whenever someone distorts my point to something ridiculous and then argues against the ridiculous thing. That seems like an acknowledgement that my real point is unassailable. Why else would someone need to invent a whole new point to argue against?

Knockout!..."

you know what, for load of reasons, sometimes people DO have problem in understanding or DONT understand at all to what other people trying to say. prolly mr/ms. anonymous is a great fan of siti or prolly mr/ms. anonymous is not a great fans of you, chief. but that's not the point. bottomline, that's just a normal FC syndrome. i bet he/she doesnt understand himself/herself what he/she wrote, let alone to understand "GREAT TALENTS THOUGH THEY MAYBE!"

IPTU mr/ms. anonymous!

lagi anonymous said...

wah, afdlin buli balik si anonymous! biasalah orang macam anonymous tu, living proof kelas kefahaman kat sekolah dulu tak berkesan.

tahniah afdlin. tapi jaga2 skit makan tu. main futsal selalu! datang taman greenwood ada banyak padang kosong, takyah membazir kat futsal center tu. tapi lampu dengan jaring kena bawak sendiri lah.

selamat!

anonymous... anonymous... kenapalah orang tak faham bahasa?? sigh..

still haven't watch buli balik.. tak der orang nak bawak.. huhu..

Unta@Jitra said...

Lantaklaa si anonymouse tu... die jeles je tu... aku bet die ni jenis org yg xleh senang dgn kesenangan org lain...

die miskin agaknye... n mayb xkreatif hohoho...

Anyway ckp pasal Buli Balik... i was a bit dissapointed laa cip kodok... i was hoping the movie wud b better than BPC... but it is not... i think we shudnt compare both of the film sb lain genre walopon 2-2 tu cip kodok punye filem...

Tgh syok2 lyn kt TGV Kinta City on the 27th... tgh best ni... tetibe aku rase mcm something missing... mcm org TGV yg pegang reel filem tu tesilap gulung... the FLASHBACK wasnt made an OBVIOUS flashback sb tetibe aku jd konfius... until the end of the film on the way back home dlm kete baru aku pikir2 balik jln cite Buli Balik ni... mayb it is ur intention to make the movie look that way but for me, personally, quite confusing...

To confirm it, i wasnt me alone... my gf felt the same way, 3-4 of my frens felt the same way also... mati2 aku igtkan filem ni salah edit...

Apart from that, everything was great... aku gelak sampai nangis adegan Sharifah Shahira tu hahahaha... tahniah to all casts

Kidino said...

Looks like you're doing good. Almost half a million in just three days. Way d'go ...

I was at your sneak preview organized by SM. Hmm ... I wonder what he's doing with my RM10 ... ?? Anyway, it was a great show. I can say that presentation is totally different from Buli.

The presentation of the story is much, much better. And bringing additional characters which didn't seem important, but really give impact to the story is a great thing. I am talking about the group counselling people, Aziz M Osman, Harun Salim Bachik, etc ...

And featuring Ramlah Ram ... who would've figured. But it's a good twist. People would relate more to the first Buli where AC Mizal was seeing her song in a karaoke.

I can say that the story is simple. But the presentation, and the way you tell the story ... it's awesome.

But I like your Baik Punya Cilok better. Well maybe I like humour more ... and that is just me.

Anyhow, I do feel that those who have watched Buli, would enjoy Buli Balik. But those who didn't would really need to watch Buli first to understand why certain things happened in Buli Balik ... like why Nordin can play a tug-o-war with AC Mizal by pulling in Ramlah Ram.

Anyhow ... Happy CNY ... I'm continuing with your PHA.

Oh yeah ... I thought I could join you in Seremban, but I am off to KL already. Have a blast ...

Boleh copy macam Bill Cosby sikit tak?

we don't need "Art" for a few.
we don't need "Education"for a few.
lastly the least,
we don't need "Freedom" for a few.

Terus...keep up the good work.
You got balls my man!

terbukti bahawa Aflin memang lawak. Aflin juga penyanyi, pecipta lagu, pelakun, pengarah ... cuma bak kata Ogy ..YB je belum ! tapi Aflin masih lagi dengan genre komedi ... bila lagi nak buat genre lain...seram, suspens, histrorikal ...... kalau buat lawak je ... lama-lama orang akan boring jugak !

Remi said...

Hai everyone, I'm new in selambakodok's blog comments community..

my personal thought about Buli Balik is that its a really great film but I like Baik Punya Cilok better. But as Kidino said, Buli Balik's presentation, and the way you tell the story ... it's awesome.(ayat kidino)

Anyways, I akan tgk je n terus berikan sokongan pada filem2 afdlin! sebb lain dari yang lain. Congrats !!

I've put links to your blog in my blogs...
my vlog and my blog

Tak sabar tunggu filem sumo!!

I have yet to make any comments but i am planning to watch it tonite. maybe can contribute to that RM490,000.I did enjoy BPC and hopefully i would also with BB. My other half said i would..and so far she have yet to be wrong.

About the anonymous person...aiyaa...kalau takde orang BODOH cam dia...susah jugak kan kalau semua orang pandai....

assalamualaikum bro,

bagi aku, ada terlalu byk filem melayu yang tidak layak utk RM 8 or RM 10 yang aku belanjakan. frankly, aku benci filem prof razak mohaideen dan yusof haslam tp derang ada peminat sendiri, kenalah hormat jugak. cumanya, kalau bagi tiket free pun aku tak pergi tgk filem derang. SERIOUS ni...mmg aku tak gi tgk.

bagi aku, mereka2 yang bersikap kurang ajar patut dibiarkan kurang ajar, tu lah, mak bapak suruh gi sekolah belajar pendidikan moral atau pendidikan islam, ko gi isap rokok dalam tandas.

sometimes, orang takleh terima yang director filem MELAYU pun boleh buat cerita yang byk layer cam filem ko buat, kelakor dan ada mesej yang ingin disampaikan. some kind of revolution to comedy film in this land so called Malaysia.

i'm sick and tired of hovey dovey (wujud ke word ni?) love movie. kalau drama plak, asyik2 wat theme keparat..eh, corporate. busan maa..bila ada satu idea baru, semer orang nak tiru, lepas tu idea tu lemau.

apapun, idea ko paling best. aku sampai cram perut gelak time tgk BULI, tak sempat lagi nak tgk BULI BALIK.

long life worthy MALAYSIAN MOVIES!!!

Cif,

I understand sometimes it is hard not to get upset to some cheesy or unsupportive comments because they are about your work therefore it’s about YOU! After all you are only human made of flesh and blood! It is hard not to blink at those unconstructive comments made by some and the only way to deal with it is to take it as a compliments. You know why? Let me tell you why..

These people, lets called them THE LOSER are actually envy you and the honesty you bring into your life and your work. Your straight forwardness, your ability to speak your mind, your ‘I don’t give a f*** about what you think of me attitude and also your ability to gathered the people out there to support you. Maybe not all but the majority of ‘the people’ are supporting you wholeheartedly and that in itself is the biggest challenge for THE LOSER.

If you think about it they are jealous of the publicity you gain from your blog. The statement made by ‘the people’, the encouragement and the promised made by us to keep on supporting you. That is almost like a pledge and how many LOSERS out there ever get this kind of acknowledgement. I think we all can do the sums up!

Don’t underestimate the power that is in our hand (‘The People’). RM10 or RM6 may not seem a lot but when you multiply it by thousands it’ll become the major factor in making or breaking the film industry. We also have the power to choose what type of films we want to see now and in the future. The fate of the local film industries literally lie in our hand. So when we choose to support you and your creative works, they are a few narrow minded people out there whom don’t quite share our enthusiasm. They will try to twist your words to make you look bad but to be honest I just have one thing to say to them…’That was soo lame mate’

Do you know that your blog and your movies official sites have been the channels for people to get a closer look into your work and your views and to some LOSERS this is a threat to their own creative work though I could only guess how creative one could be when ……….(lets not finish the sentences)

I’m sure that everyone has their own favourite’s directors, film makers, actors and films of different genres but to spill out their lack of intelligent for others to view is absolutely a sham. I am certain that they must be THE LOSERS out there who think I can do better than Afdlin, I can come out with better storyline than him too but if you just sit and dwelling about whom can do better than whom, than you might as well sit and do nothing. If you really think you port can do much better work than anyone else than get your ass up and start doing something that we all can be proud of. Get your brain out of the shell and start using it for better cause and stop talking and giving your shallow opinion about other people creative works. WE WANT TO SEE RESULT! And if they cannot come up with a good one then just SHUT YOUR GOB!

To you cif, I have to quote what you say in your blog, ‘People who know me know i am not that kind of person’…
You say it well Afdlin and please don’t let this wee hiccups spoiling your moments and your ability to thrive and achieve your goal. You know what they say ‘if you cannot bring the people up to the mountain than you better bring the bloody mountain down to the people’…enuff said. Many congratulations to your films and be strong, very strong and may you have a smoother journey in the future.
