Kerja Kah­win

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Movies - – Angelin Yeoh

LESS is more with this sub­lime fam­ily drama about a tra­di­tional Malay wed­ding in a kam­pung. The leg­endary Datuk Ros­nani Jalil takes on the role of Mak Tok, a stern yet lov­ing grand­mother to Farah (Janna Nick).

The events in Kerja Kah­win un­folds over a pe­riod of two days as the whole kam­pung gets to­gether to help pre­pare for Farah’s wed­ding.

For the long­est of time, I al­ways thought a wed­ding would not be com­plete with­out an Anuar Zain song. This movie proves me wrong.

Kerja Kah­win in­tro­duces the im­por­tant as­pects of a wed­ding from food to dec­o­ra­tion, en­ter­tain­ment and mar­riage of­fi­ciant in a hu­mor­ous man­ner. There are also plenty of sur­prises along the way as some guests are fun­nier than oth­ers with “mak cik tapao” (take­away aun­tie) be­ing my favourite. Also, look out for a mem­o­rable cameo by Aziz M. Os­man. Kerja Kah­win does not have a life-chang­ing story that will blow your mind. But it is a heart­warm­ing tale about or­di­nary peo­ple do­ing things out of love. And, that is what sticks in your mind long af­ter you have left the cin­ema.
