Ac­tion-packed po­lice drama still packs a punch, writes DEN­NIS CHUA

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

AL­THOUGH J Revo­lusi is in its fourth week of screen­ing, the ac­tion­packed po­lice drama is still go­ing strong. The movie star­ring Zul Arif­fin, Farid Kamil, Izara Aishah, Nur Fazura Shar­i­fud­din, Omar Ab­dul­lah, Iedil Pu­tra Alaudin and Azad Jazmin has raked in RM7 mil­lion, much to the de­light of its di­rec­tor, Zulka­r­nain Azhar.

“The figure could have been higher if not for the ar­rival of Hol­ly­wood block­busters, such as Power Rangers. On Fri­day, main ac­tors Zul and Farid will be meet­ing fans in Kuala Tereng­ganu, where sup­port for the movie has been par­tic­u­larly strong,” Zulka­r­nain said.

He said J Revo­lusi’s ag­gres­sive ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign on tele­vi­sion and so­cial me­dia, and in cine­mas, had pro­moted the movie among cin­ema-go­ers, who oth­er­wise might have opted to watch for­eign movies.

“The de­ter­mi­na­tion of the main hero, Jay Zulka­r­nain, to clear his name of wrong­do­ing and save his twin sis­ter, Dian, from the clutches of evil crime lord An­dra has been de­scribed as an ex­cit­ing story by view­ers, with many watch­ing the movie twice.”

J Revo­lusi opened in cine­mas on March 2 and was co-pro­duced by Grand Bril­liance Sdn Bhd and In­fini­tus Pro­duc­tions Pri­vate Lim­ited.

Filmed in the Klang and Kinta val­leys, it tells of the chal­lenges and dan­gers faced by ded­i­cated Spe­cial Ac­tion Unit of­fi­cers.
