Pen­curi Hati Mr Cin­derella

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Movies - –AY

JUST how many ver­sions of Ayda Je­bat’s hit song Pen­curi Hati does one per­son need in their life­time? Try at least four and lis­ten to all of them over and over again in the Ah­mad Id­ham-di­rected ro­man­tic com­edy Pen­curi Hati Mr Cin­derella. There is a stripped-down acous­tic ver­sion, a capella with beat­box­ing, dan­g­dut and rock. I un­der­stand Ah­mad wants to utilise a pop­u­lar song to his ad­van­tage but less is more...

For­tu­nately, Pen­curi Hati Mr Cin­derella has enough charm on its own to keep you en­gaged in the story about an older rich man (played by Ah­mad) fall­ing in love with a GRO (Atikah Suhaime in her best role to date). Call it a ma­jor mid-life cri­sis.

Pen­curi Hati Mr Cin­derella is a well-de­vel­oped love story with plenty of hu­mor­ous mo­ments, some re­al­is­tic scenes (the char­ac­ters lament­ing about cur­rent eco­nomic sit­u­a­tions) and it ac­tu­ally fea­tures two ro­man­tic leads hav­ing con­ver­sa­tions about life and what is go­ing to hap­pen in the fu­ture.

While it gets a lit­tle tire­some half­way, the movie does build up to an un­pre­dictable end­ing, and will ul­ti­mately steal your heart.
