Press Preview BULI BALIK!!!! A different animal from BPC!



let me tell you a little bit about myself and what i believe cinema can and should be.

I hate mediocrity. If i know i can do something well, i will move on to do other things. I challenge myself constantly.
I Love movies. I love to fantasize about the what ifs. But the type of movie which i really, truly adore are movies which are provokable, that disturbs ur emotional well being, that jogs u from ur calm and expect u to think and feel.

SEPET, GUBRA, La Haine (HATE), CINEMA PARADISO are very good examples of this. It is about important stories that needs to be told to shift people's paradigm.

WHAT is paradigm? Your knowledge + the things u have experienced in YOUR world during ur life, up till today. I don't pretend to know all, and i want every new experience i have to shift my paradigm because it means i am learning something new constantly. What i forsee as reality, you might see as something that cannot happen, because we have had different upbringings by people with differing sets of moral values..I come from a poor family but because i converse well in english people think GUA ANAK LORD (a lord's son), because in their world people who speak english well are all anak orang kaya. Another example would be, a slightly more matured married man with children might appreciate Cinderrela Man more than a single happy-go-lucky-never-had-to work-a-single-day-in-his-life-kind-of-fellow.

When directing a movie. I try to cater to two crowds - the simple minded folk and the slightly more sophisticated folks. This might not be the right thing to do and i'm sure a lot of independent directors (who shudder at the very mention of mainstream malay movies) despise the very idea of compromising their art for commercialism. I once tried to use that line on my car reposessor, needless to say.. I am now carless.

I believe in making movies that invite the urban and rural market to converge under one roof. That is why BULI and BAIK PUNYA CILOK have been doing fairly well in the cinemas i guess. Kalau nak gelak aje, dapat gelak. Tapi kalau pergi dengan minda terbuka dapat pengajaran.

At the press preview of BULI BALIK, i don't think i have ever experienced being this happy after a press preview EVER in my life. "WHY?"."Was it because everybody was happy about the movie and excited about it?" you may ask. The answer is yes and no.

Yes! because, besides seeing many teary-eyed people leaving the cinema, i managed to DEDICATE THIS FILM TO MY DEAR MOM (prior to it's showing), who is currently recovering from her bout with stroke and i believe, she is the greatest fighter in the world. She is my hero.

Yes! Secondly because, i had wanted BULI BALIK to be different, i wanted to go back to doing dramatic comedies in the vein of WOODY ALLEN, BARRY LEVINSON although i know my standard dengan diorang punya standard jauh lagi-la beb. SO straight away, my intention is for this film to be different from BPC, but not just for the sake of being different, but of the weight of the subject matter - BULLYING. I wanted people to have fun, but feel kacau after seeing the end of the film, to end it unconventionally. NOT LIKE A TYPICAL COMEDY ENDING.

My wife, in her blog has a very interesting perspective on this matter, which coincides with what i wanted to do, which is people should ask themseves why they feel the way they feel. Could it not have happened or were you not ready for it to happen. I saw many people who got it, but also a few others who were confused like little lambs coming out their mother's womb. Hee hee. surprised and confused with the movie's ending. I like that.


TO BLUQUBE : Everything i do in a film is based on realities of life that i have seen. Is there a logical explanation for a big gorilla to climb up the empire state building, being pumped full with bullets and then dropping to the ground AND NOBODY DIED EXCEPT FOR THE GORILLA (nobody else got squashed into a lempeng on one of the busiest streets in NEW YORK), then i think it is not too far fetched to believe that after the show has finished, the security guards who were formerly guarding the money and later carried the professor out of the hall - which meant that they had left the hall - and to assume that after sending the professor to the clinic, had probably gone off for a teh tarik or two or even deciding to catch the LIVERPOOL vs Tottenham game.


And Alhamdulillah... BAIK PUNYA CILOK telah setakat ini mengutip 2.46 miiion... congrats Tayangan UNGGUL!!!

Saudara Afdlin,

Pernah tengok cerita Evelyn (lakonan Pierce Brosnan) dan In America? I recommend them. It's all about a father's sacrifice for his children...not unlike what you are doing right now...albeit in different form.

thanks

As being quoted by you:

"Another example would be, a slightly more matured married man with children might appreciate Cinderrela Man more than a single happy-go-lucky-never-had-to work-a-single-day-in-his-life-kind-of-fellow."

I respectfully agree with you on your statement, which from my understandings, what you wanna say is different people have their own different layers of thinking. I might not be in the same layer with you, and that is why you get such an answer from me when you asked my opinion about the movie. :-p

BTW, about the ending of BB, there is nothing wrong of making a different ending like that. Yes, it is unexpected & kinda shocking BUT they came in a good way. For me, it is something good/positive if the audience can discuss about "Why is it different approaches this time?" or "Why is the ending like that?".. which may denote the ideas that you want to deliver are actually sampai to the audience's mind. I don't know others but at least that is what i perceived.

Anyways, big round of applause for BB and kudos to all the crews!

I watched Baik Punya Cilok and had the time of my life laughing~definitely learnt something. It was good and it definitely wasnt an amateur movie trying to make it big like it's some box office production because it simply is!

I am a chinese myself and enjoys watching Malay movies and I think our entertainment industry is growing very well. People often diss our local made movies as they might have an impression tat its an amateur piece.I simply despise those ppl who does not appreciate our locally produced movies. And if they think Hollywood movies is a big deal, just watch. Buli balik is gonna be a BOMB! I cant wait.

Anyhow, what's cilok by the way? I laughed my heart,soal and liver out thruout the movie but i still dont get the word. Cilok..puzzling. Dude, you're a great director! Produce more movies and keep the whole world smiling=)

NaSh said...

aku akan menjadi yg pertama menonton filem ni.. huhu

Kidino said...

Wahlah ... gua dari minggu2 lepas dok kata. Afdlin memang power. Since 2005, dan coming to 2006 ... mencanak2 melakar nama dalam industri ni.

Dari Fuyoo!, $how Me the Money, Ah-Ha, Buli, Buli Balik, Baik Punya Cilok, appearance in numerouse drama (Phua Chu Kang, Puteri) dan also teater involvement ... not to mention MCing for numerous huge events, sedikit demi sedikit (tapi rasanya agak banyak gak), nampak peningkatan. Bukan peningkatan sahaja, but always experimenting with new things ...

I have to say ... Cayalah Bro!

La ni ... satu filem tengah showing (Baik Punya Cilok), satu filem tunggu showing (Buli Balik) dan lagi in the making (Sumo-lah).

Afdlin and I had a chat the other day. And believe me, more are to come in 2006 ...

Gua ucapkan tahniah untuk Afdlin. And also all the best for 2006 with all the upcoming projects.

And maybe this is what they say the butterfly effect. It's like everything is starting to fall to places.

A reminder to you my Bro, and to myself, seperti kata TooPhat, "Sebesar rumah bermula dengan sekecil bata, boleh hilang dalam sekelip mata. Ucaplah alhamdulillah bukannya sukar, kerna semua nak kaya atau besar. Tetap Allahuakbar!!!"

Dan di kelapangan, jangan lupa baca doa ... "Moga cahaya lailatul tak membutakan mataku, semoga segala puji tak ku meninggi diri. Moga segala janji dapat juga ku penuhi"

* I read wrongly abt the Great Ape, so i rewrite this cooment

BUli balik, is indeed a good movie, far better than most malay movie i've ever seen. It's refreshing to see that you can make people laugh, hate, love, and now, CRY I was really touched by the last scene.seriously. and i can feel the hatred in nordin when he confronted roy.your own experience did help, maybe?

by the time the credits appear, i was in disbelieve. i was like,"dah abis?".and i only know about the running time was 2hrs from DJ's blog.tak rasa masa berlalu.i was engrossed in the story.

which is why i was a bit negative about certain things, which hampers my concentration.tgh syok2 tiba2 ada something amiss.sayang sekali...

about the big gorilla, yeah, you're right. even with the police cordoning the area (seen when Driscoll entering the building) there should be someone hurt. but usually extras being hurt (like the man who got squashed by the car thrown br Kong) don't get much airtime afterwards, so they can be resurrected in other scene (mostly seen on the ship's crew.this scene they're here, another they're there). that's what i think about that scene. so maybe it would be less confusing for simple minded people like me, if you'd just add a little detail explaining that they're going elsewhere. assumptions can be made, but it should be based on something, shouldn't it? the same goes for police arriving at the end of an old hindi movie, after a loving couple defeated a whole battalion of baddies and saved the world. maybe there was traffic jam, but nothing was told, so assumptions have no base here, and we scuff at that part. you even made a sarcastic mockery of it in BPC, did you?or so i thought...

You managed explain everything so well in BPC, and that had almost never been done in any malay movie. but here, some are well backed up, while some are, to me, like it's been put there impromptu. for instance, other than the guard's scene, aziz m osman's character should've been developed a little more, so when he says who he is, we can relate to that incident earlier and say, ooh..padanla...

would love to discuss this with u and all kodoks, but i'll wait until after 26th...so many can join us.

but this is just my humble opinion from my thick glasses' point of view(:p).hope you're not (too) mad at me for my review.i love your works and i want it to be better.

make us proud!

saya nih..salah sorang dari reramai yg tak minat sebenarnya tgk cerite melayu... to me.. raya kuar kat tv... tunggu jek la. cerita yg saya tgk kat cinema.. which required audio effects.. or any other reason i choosed.

but i make exception for BPC.. i went to watch it last month together with whole family ranging from youngest of 4 years old and oldest is 64 years. everyone enjoy it.. my mom laugh so loud that i have to calm her down.. the kids tak habis2 "yo yo bro" here n there.. i enjoyed it so much also..but i dun like the last part.. its so boring and predictable. start2 bpc..org dah gelak.. but after discussing wit my husband.. okay i accept the fact..it need balance for some serius part. to point out to you some of the not so good part u can berhati2 next time is..
continuity.. err.. saya rasa term tuh lah agaknya.. cos masa someone drown tuh.. bila camera angle sini..die pandang sana.. bila angle sana..die pandang sini..padahal die tak gerak supposely...

alaa tuh bende kecik jek pun.. cuma it annoyed me..cos saya tau awak nih jenis berhati2 agaknya tak?

oh back to the reason i watch bpc is.. YOUR BLOG..i come here often to read ur blog.. i think its the only drive for me to go watch your movie.. saya boley baca kerje keras awak..yg awak sendirik tulis..bukan reporter..so me n my husband.. we support you..walaupun sedikit.. mana yg termampu..

serius saya nak bagitau..saya lom jumpa artis kite yg sincere cam awak..dlm sibuk2 pun awak sempat nak cerita citer kodok kodok awak..
i love reading something that came out from your very own kepala hotak n heart.. not from anybody else. kudos afdlin. u open few more eyes to support malay movies of yours. kalau laa dpt sama sama in real life tgk usaha keras awak.

oh..btw.. dulu saya pernah nampak awak kat bangsar wit ur rambut mat salleh..and i dun like u heheh..
now everything change.. u one of a kind..ur special.. and u r my malaysian adam sandler. :D

lizanoor said...

mr afdlin! now i know u have a blog. my hubby & i r such a fan of u, especially my hubby. lagi2 dia suka nohhhhh watch u in filem BULI. i suka watch you in Soal Hati.

my hubby is also cute and montel *macam u*, but cute-r (kata hubby kan, must puji up lebih sikit. even kalau orang nak vomit pun).

i agree with ayu. hubby n i think u r de M'sia version of Adam Sandler.

woo..woo..hold a sec..due to Linda Ahmad's comment..U car-less..wow..hei dude...dun worryla..maybe not ur time to have it yet.

wa mesti tgk punyer BB pasal..yeah..u,one of the shares..n of course my luvly lolita,nasha aziz..can u ask her to give a comment in ur blogs dude..

Congratulation, you have shifted the paradigm-billaghunnah of many viewers about malay movie through BPC. Or at least if it didnt budged, their jaws are already.
I watched BPC at cinema just for curiosity and NBTDness. Unexpectedly,it was actually a trap! I was caught by it.
Still feel the shock and can't wait for another malay movie orgasm.
buli balik, balik la cepattttt!!!!

*NBTD = no better thing to do

swan said...

Cif,

Just curious, kalau you tak dapat apa pun dari BPC punya collection except for your pay out as an actor, then why oh why you want us to go and serbu the panggung. To be honest, I want you yg dapat at least sebahagian dari kutipan baru ler adil. Ni buat orang lain yg kaya, i dont feel good la cif.

I hope for the next films, you must let us know if you have share ke tidak. We're supporting you despite whatever you are, and seriously, anak lord cant' hardly speak good english..gaya je lebih!

cif..you speak your mind, weaving your idea making it into a reality. You are brave enough to provoke and be provoked. You ideas are real life story be it yours or the next bloke at the bus stop opposite Kg Warisan..everything is about something, somebody, somewhere, someday or today or tomorrow.

People can critics, share opinions or slagging just like Simon Cowell on American Idol but there are some truth in it that must be taken into account.

Cif, you just do what you do best and that is making films. Good or bad, it is up to the individual to perceive what they like.

Sometimes, ikan kembung when masak goreng bercili is better than just goreng kunyit...but some people may prefer dada ayam bersalut nandos sauce to ikan kembung...

I just want to watch your film and enjoy it while I still can. Kudos Cif...

selambakodok said...

No matter wether i am paid 500 ringgit or 50,000 ringgit if i have commited myself to a project, i give a hundred percent regardless. I have lived my life this way and it has proven to be a good code. So, even if i am not making any money for BAIK PUNYA CILOK, i want my masters to benefit as much as they can from it.

When i make my own films later, i really wish to make as much benefit from it too. Intellectual Property , everywhere else in the world is big business and when MALAYSIA wakes up and recognizes it, that is when i plan to cash in.

The power is in your hands. You control your own destiny.

Oh by the way, latest report!.... Baik Punya Cilok has collected 2.6 million. The producers don't think we can go beyond 2.75 million, which is Pontianak Harum Sundal 2's box-office collection.

I BELIEVE WE CAN.

Thanks for the expalnation. I understand where it came from and how big your commitment is towards the malaysian film industries, I salute you Cif..

We're still far from achieving what your mission is. Our audience needs something to justify. Something to think about but still too afraid to think out of the box. We're so used to happy ending we refuse to accept anything else with a different approaches. But you can do it Cif, and you must for the sake of our film industries.

We have a censorship board who still runs around in the dinausour's era. How can we create something that outstanding without breaking the bank balance, without being scrutinised by the censorship board and fairly rated by the films critics without saying we're too bold and too ambitious?

We ought to think out of this world!

Seriously, Alf, permit me to be honest as you have. The art of being an actor is to be who you are not. But the characters you portray sebenarnya ada traces and hints of Afdlin. As a filmaker pun, takdelah banyak originality sangat sebab pada orang yang tahu sangat filem, you banyak pinjam teknik dan gaya dari omputih cuma subtle jerr. So bagi us Malaysians commoners, ok BPC ada nafas baru tapi lets face it man, it's all about you you you and also fellow actor colleagues/freinds. Sori la but you gotta take this like a man! We will buy you for now, tapi kalau takde perubahan, nanti kitaorang penat tengok you and the same tried and tested formula. Buli Balik pun ada banyak similarities dengan BPC. Betul tak? Same cast, check. Syok sendiri jokes, check. From gelak ketawa aleh aleh tukar jadi serious, check. Flashbacks, check. Wait hang on a sec...lets make it different a bit...well you all nanti tengok lah sendiri. Cuma Afdlin jer tahu apa yang I maksudkan. But rest assured, we will still mebrace your films. We know who you are from your webpage....but take a moment and ask yourself betul betul...who is Afdlin as an artist? Bukan niat tak baik ya, tapi saja jer nak bagi opinion.

Hey there, Afdlin.

Can't wait for Buli Balik to come out. Am taking this opportunity to congratulate you for Baik Punya Cilok. Bluidy good piece there, mat. Love the dialogue. It's lawak, but not bodoh bosan or bodoh irritating, you know?

The whole cinema was laughing and I do mean everyone and it was already in its..what? 4th week, is it? Anyhow, saw it on Friday 13th, Jan..

So, keep up the good work..

Terusik hati untuk membalas jawab komen yg dibuat saudara anonymous.

Firstly..
'The art of being an actor is to be who you are not. But the characters you portray sebenarnya ada traces and hints of Afdlin.'

Well, it is true and I agree on this statement that a good actor is someone who can play their screen character really well that we dont think of the real actor pesona when we watch him/her playing the screen character. But but but, kalau kita tengok filem filem lain baik local, hollywood or bollywood banyak juga pelakon2 yg berlakon dan menyelitkan sedikit sebanyak personality mereka dalam filem. Cuma kita tak kenal mereka off screen jadik kita andaikan bila mereka berlakon mereka begitu baik dlm lakonan mereka. Masalahnya kita dah kenal Afdlin sebagai comedian tapi mana tahu Afdlin yg sebnarnya is a very serious deep thinking minded person..ay

Secondly...
'
takdelah banyak originality sangat sebab pada orang yang tahu sangat filem, you banyak pinjam teknik dan gaya dari omputih cuma subtle jerr'

Yg ini pun betul memang tak dinafikan Afdlin ada mengambil sedikit sebanyak unsur unsur comedy dari Hollywood tapi tak ada salahnya mencari kelainan yg dah dibuat orang jika ianya menjadikan filem itu diterima majority. Sebenarnya membuat filem ni semuanya sama...basicnya sama,pembukaan citer, isi citer and the climax, cuma cara directing saja yg berlainan. dia copy aku, engkau copy dia..nothing wrong with it but how you manipulate the simple thing into something with a wow factor is the main success. And Afdlin made it! lets face it Yasmin Ahmad buat iklan Petronas and Sepet is nothing new. The concept, storyline and etc dah dibuat filmakers all around the world for decades tapi bila dia buat untuk kita, kita rasa wow, sebab ia benda baru BAGI' kita, sebab tak ramai lagi yg ambil approach macam Yasmin but the originality, nothing new...

Third....
'BPC ada nafas baru tapi lets face it man, it's all about you you you and also fellow actor colleagues/freinds.We will buy you for now, tapi kalau takde perubahan, nanti kitaorang penat tengok you and the same tried and tested formula'

OK yg ini I nak katalah kalau I nak buat filem dengan berbudget kan org lain punya duit, dah tentuuulah I pun nak ambil org yg I dah percaya, yg I dah kenal yg I gerenti tak lari lepas buat satu scene, tak datang lambat, tak mengada ngada demand itu ini mengalahkan Mariah Carey aka Mimi plak, nak mineral water cap buluh betung je ke, nak langsir purple je ke...susah jugak sebab a lot is at stake here bruder! Lagipun bila kita ambil casting yg majority happened to be our mateys, kita tak kekok nak discus itu ini dan mereka pun dah tentu nak bagi yg terbaik 100%. And we cant deny the fact that Afdlin casting member memang BOLEH berlakon, lebih boleh lagi dari kebanyakkan pelakon pelakon di negara kita ni...and that is FACT...CHECK!
Tentang test and tested formula tu mungkin Afdlin got something up his sleeves cuma kita je yg tak tahu so bagi la can kat dia nak improve...ok

Fourth...
'Buli Balik pun ada banyak similarities dengan BPC. Betul tak? Same cast, check. Syok sendiri jokes, check. From gelak ketawa aleh aleh tukar jadi serious, check. Flashbacks, check. Wait hang on a sec...lets make it different a bit'

Susah jugak nak lari dari jalan citer and nak buat lain dari yg lain pasal BULI BALIK is a sequal..

last but not least...
'We know who you are from your webpage....but take a moment and ask yourself betul betul...who is Afdlin as an artist?'

Afdlin is a person, a man, a father, a husband and a film maker, an artist, and most importantly HE has been a friend to many of us personally or non personally. His blog may not potrayed everything and the enitre truth about who he really is but, he is a man of himself and NO ONE and I repeat NO ONE should and have the right to judge him or contest his way of doing his works and any body else in this blog(other kodoks whom wholeheartedly supporting him, salute to you all kodokians) because we BELIEVE in him. To the skeptics out there, you have choices.Stop being judgemental and asking other people what's the true meaning of being a life force on this earth if we ourselves not perfect in so so many ways. Lets embrace our fear and lets be proud for those already face it or at least willing to take the paradigm!

Thank you.
