New Straits Times - - Entertainment - writes TAHIR ALHAMZAH

INTO its fourth week of screen­ing, J Revolusi has reached its pro­duc­ers’ ex­pec­ta­tion in terms of ticket sales. Prime­works Dis­tri­bu­tion’s gen­eral man­ager for dis­tri­bu­tion and in­no­va­tion Marini Ram­lan said the film had col­lected RM6.8 mil­lion in ticket sales, a con­sid­er­able fig­ure, es­pe­cially when it is com­pet­ing with Hol­ly­wood block­busters.

“We can col­lect a lit­tle more since the movie is still be­ing screened,” she said at the grand fi­nal event for J Revolusi Watch and Win Mazda Con­test at Ber­jaya Times Square in Kuala Lumpur re­cently.

Present were Prime­works Stu­dios chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Ah­mad Izham Omar and In­fini­tus Pro­duc­tions ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Gay­a­tri Su-Lin Pil­lai.

The con­test, part of the on­ground pro­mo­tions for the movie, has a Mazda 2 Sky­ac­tiv Hatch­back worth more than RM80,000 as the grand prize.

The con­test, which ran from March 2 to 16, re­ceived al­most 1,000 en­tries from J Revolusi fans, who were re­quired to an­swer ques­tions based on the movie on web­sites of par­tic­i­pat­ing part­ners, such as Me­dia Prima Group, U Mo­bile, 7-Eleven Malaysia, Sweet­Spot, Kenny Rogers Roast­ers and B In­fi­nite.

Ten fans made it to the fi­nals where they took part in three rounds of fun-filled ac­tiv­i­ties to de­ter­mine the win­ner.

Vas­an­tha Govin­darajo from Pa­hang was an­nounced the win­ner.

The 41-year-old house­wife, ac­com­pa­nied by her hus­band and two daugh­ters, re­ceived her car from Mazda se­nior brand eq­uity man­ager Ian Khong.

The other nine fi­nal­ists each re­ceived a Sam­sung Galaxy S7 Edge smart­phone.

Present were two J Revolusi stars — Zul Arif­fin and Farid Kamil — who took part in the games with the con­tes­tants.

J Revolusi is co-pro­duced by Grand Bril­liance and In­fini­tus Pro­duc­tions.

“We’re grate­ful to fans who have been sup­port­ing J Revolusi.

“This con­test is our way to show our ap­pre­ci­a­tion,” said In­fini­tus Pro­duc­tions man­ag­ing di­rec­tor T.P. Lim.

The movie also stars Izara Aishah and Nur Fazura Shar­i­fud­din.

Marini said J Revolusi had at­tracted non-Malays.

“There has been a lot of dis­cus­sion on J Revolusi among non-Malay Ne­ti­zens who have seen it.

“This is a great in­di­ca­tion that this movie has bro­ken racial bar­ri­ers. It’s a movie for ev­ery­one.”
