GET your tis­sues ready. Kau Takdirku is a sad love story where a man has to watch the woman he loves get mar­ried to his best friend.

Just when you think men are not sen­si­tive enough, you see Remy Ishak, as the heart­bro­ken man, sit­ting in a car in an­guish while try­ing to get over his feel­ings. Sob.

Kau Takdirku of­fers gor­geous un­der­wa­ter scenes and some view­ers will swoon over the ro­man­tic scenes be­tween Bront Palarae and Ez­zaty Abdullah as their char­ac­ters fall in love, get mar­ried and go on their hon­ey­moon.

But Kau Takdirku suf­fers from the crime of mon­tage overuse. Ev­ery time, I hear the movie’s theme song com­ing up, my en­thu­si­asm for the story just goes out the win­dow.

It doesn’t help that the story un­folds in a bizarre, un­even pac­ing. Don’t even get me started on the ridicu­lous end­ing where a pair of lovers bicker in the mid­dle of the ocean while an­other man is hav­ing a seizure. Just don’t.

As a re­sult, Kau Takdirku leaves a lot to be de­sired. – AY
