New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

AC­TION flick J Revolusi’s box of­fice col­lec­tions con­tinue to soar, record­ing RM4.3 mil­lion af­ter 10 days in cin­e­mas.

In a state­ment from co-pro­ducer Grand Bril­liance yes­ter­day, more than 300,000 peo­ple have viewed the movie.

J Revolusi di­rec­tor Zulka­r­nain Azhar said movie­go­ers were im­pressed with Zul Arif­fin, who is mark­ing his first ma­jor ac­tion hero role.

He plays Jay, a mem­ber of Unit Tin­dakan Khas, the special op­er­a­tions force of the Royal Malaysian Po­lice.

Many have likened him to the late Tan Sri Jins Sham­sud­din’s iconic se­cret agent Je­fri Zain since there is an un­canny re­sem­blance be­tween them.

“The main cast com­pris­ing Zul Arif­fin, Farid Kamil, Izara Aishah and Azad Jazmin have been on road shows in Pe­nang, Jo­hor Baru and Sin­ga­pore, and fans have been very ex­cited about the movie.

“They have per­formed bril­liantly, even Izara and Azad who have held their own as Jay’s best friends in the Special Ac­tion Unit,” he said, adding that the road show would be in Kuala Lumpur next week­end.

Zulka­r­nain and his team also earned ku­dos from movie­go­ers for por­tray­ing the coun­try’s last sur­viv­ing dredge in Tan­jung Tualang, Perak, in an in­tro­duc­tory scene of the movie.

“We used the dredge for an im­por­tant scene to in­tro­duce fans to Jay’s lead­er­ship qual­i­ties.”

J Revolusi is co-pro­duced by Grand Bril­liance and In­fini­tus Pro­duc­tions. It opened in more than 120 cin­e­mas on March 2.

A special con­test with at­trac­tive prizes also awaits fans at www.jrev­o­lusi.my. The con­test ends Thurs­day.
