After reading about Ombak Rindu in a newspaper, I begged Hubby to look after the kids for a couple of hours so that I can watch it ALONE. No kids around so I can glue my attention 100% on the screen. Barulah boleh feeling-feeling syahdu huhu…
Currently, Ombak Rindu is doing exceptionally well at the box office. Responses from moviegoers are overwhelmingly still strong after 3 weeks being aired. I myself had difficulty making reservation as all shows were full. Some cinemas are allocating more than one theater for a show slot for Ombak Rindu.
The pull to watch adaptation from the same titled novel by Fauziah Ashari was even greater after I managed to catch about a 15-minute preview of the movie over Astro Ria. With high anticipation, I went to watch the film at GSC Times Square last Friday.
A salute to director Osman Ali! He manages to bring out the best in his casts. All ingredients for a quality film - excellent acting, powerful script and beautiful cinematography are presence in this movie. Not to forget, one mellow song that clicks with the story mood. I dare to say, it is one film to reckon with at any film festival be it locally or internationally. It is a recipe for success when all elements work perfectly together to heighten audience's senses.
For me, this movie is about women's struggle in love and their status in general (darjat wanita). It's a love story no argument there, but one great love story that is. Love is one elusive subject. It comes without force and it cannot be forced. Backed by remarkable actors namely Maya Karin (Izzah), Aaron Aziz (Hariz), Lisa Surihani (Mila) and Bront Palarae (Mail) among others, Ombak Rindu revolves around Izzah's poignant life from a simple kampung girl who ends up being married to an arrogant city boy Haris. Audience is led through her transformation from a naïve and mistreated girl to the most precious person in Haris' heart. Mila, a stuck up and overly celebrity, is the other woman in Haris' life. Lisa Surihani as an antagonist is believably annoying. Thus, the conflict elevates.

In conclusion, if it's meant to be, come what may the love will withstand everything and survive. But if it's not meant to be, sooner or later separation is inevitable. Kalau dah jodohkan…
