Ilham (Faizal Hussein) arrives home in Bunohan

THE name of prolific filmmaker Dain Said's latest masterpiece is a real-life village in Kelantan, near the Malaysia-Thailand border, and its macabre name spells "murder" in English.

Murder, in its most gruesome manifestations, is present throughout this movie and so is its companion blood.

But Bunohan is not about murder and blood alone. It is about family, honour, greed and corruption — all emanating from and taking place in and around the tradition-bound village the film is named after.

Slow-moving and thought-provoking, thus requiring patience and more than one viewing, Bunohan tells the story of three brothers from the village who are estranged from their tok dalang father.

One brother is a hired killer whose weapon is a lawi ayam curved dagger. While he looks cold and mean, he is really a caring son who cherishes the memory of his late mother and is obsessed with finding her lost grave, relocated by a relative who wants possession of the land.

Another brother is like Tom Hanks' character, Michael Sullivan in the film Road To Perdition — damned if he does his job and damned if he does not. He is a muay thai boxer who, to earn a living, takes part in fight-to-death competitions in Pattani in southern Thailand. But he grows sick of his job and runs home, with his match organiser's hired killer in hot pursuit.

The third brother is educated, neat and tidy. But behind his polished image, he is the devil incarnate who stops at nothing to sell the family land and his village for money and power.
The three brothers are Ilham (Faizal Hussein, last seen in Abuya), Adil (Zahiril Adzim, last seen in Klip 3GP) and Bakar (Pekin Ibrahim, last seen in Hantu Kak Limah Balik Rumah).

They are sons of Pok Eng (Wan Hanafi Su, the Garuda King Of Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa) from different wives, so they do not know of each other's existence in the dysfunctional family.
Ilham, who once thought of working on ships and circling the globe, ends up a killer. Ruthless, yet cold, lonely and longing to be loved, he faces the biggest ordeal of his life when he learns that his next victim is his youngest brother Adil.

After nearly losing his life at the hands of a cheating opponent, his best friend, Muski (Amerul Affendi, Zahiril's Air Con co-star), brings him back to Bunohan to be treated by Pok Wah.
There, Adil chooses to stay for good because he wants to find out more about his family and more importantly, he realises that returning to Thailand means death.

Bakar, the eldest brother and the only one with a paper qualification, is a teacher but he moonlights as an Ah Long and is part of a corrupt, urban businessman's circle.
He fails to con his father into parting with the ancestral land and has to resort to more cruel means to get rich quick.

When the three brothers and father finally meet, what ought to be a happy homecoming ends instead in tragedy that shatters the idyllic seaside village.
Meanwhile, the family receives visits from strange beings — a mysterious half-crocodile woman (Tengku Azura Awang) who introduces herself as Ilham's mother, Yah, and a boy in shorts addressed as Abang who speaks in the voice of an old man.

Bunohan, despite its bloody and dark story, showcases beautiful cinematography courtesy of breathtaking reed fields, mangrove swamps and muddy rivers.

While dialogue is minimal, the facial expressions, body language and colours of the various characters and scenes more than tell the tragic story of Pok Eng's crumbling family.
Acting is first class, especially Faizal whose complex Ilham bares his heart and soul to the viewers and receives their sympathy all the way.
He may be a sinner who slices throats and rips out guts, but his love for his mother and respect for family renders him an angel at heart.

We also shed more than a tear for young Adil as he marches or rather boxes his way to perdition. Zahiril takes on wounded characters with gusto and his real-life chum, Amerul, and their real-life arts teacher Nam Ron have excellent chemistry with each other.

Both Zahiril and Amerul took muay thai lessons and endured painful bashings to make their on-screen roles real.

As for Pekin, the Kelantanese lad has grown by leaps and bounds. Having previously played good boys on the big and small screens, his performance here is noteworthy.

The yuppie scum who stops at nothing to become a millionaire, not unlike Daniel Day Lewis' Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood, he deserves an award for the most despicable villain of 2012.

Bront Palarae and Sofi Jikan, who play the ruthless muay thai organisers, fit nicely into the scheme of things as they have always done in alpha male flicks.
Hot model Azura does justice to her role as a betrayed wife and the spirit of Ilham's mother, Yah. Her appearances in the reed fields are both scary and sexy.

A no-nonsense tale of good-in-evil and evil-in-good, Bunohan also shines on account of the actors' flawless dialogue in Kelantan dialect. While Pekin is the only Kelantanese in the main cast, Faizal's mastery of the dialect is second to none.

With much in common with a Quentin Tarantino or Terence Malick film, Bunohan is the country's most ambitious art film and ought to earn us awards at popular film festivals abroad. It has all the elements of a champion — compelling and thought-provoking story, solid acting, breathtaking cinematography and a no-nonsense director who thinks out of the box.

Bunohan" is both a village in backwater Malaysia and also a Malay word for "murder", and as it were, it is a story that opens with a vicious Muay Thai fight-to-the-death in Thailand, in which the badly outclassed Adil (Zahril Adzim) is rescued by his best friend Muski (Amerul Affendi). However, because he's betrayed the terms of the match, Adil has to flee Thailand, and hot on his heels is hired killer Ilham (Faizal Hussein), who's been hired by the crooked promoter Jokol (Hushairy Hussin) to kill Adil. Ilham left home as a youth, so he doesn't realize that he and Adil actually are half-brothers. The chase takes the two men back to their village of Bunohan, where coincidentally, Bakar (Pekin Ibrahim), who is Adil's older brother, also returns in order to look after their ailing father. Unbeknownst to them, Bakar has much darker motives than that of a dutiful son. What fates await the three men back home, when in Bunohan; home is where the heart breaks.

Hush Dragons: Bunohan (2012)

Posted: 31 Mar 2012 08:01 PM PDT

"Bunohan is one of those slow movies that I don't really mind being slow..."
After years of separation, three step brothers, Adil (Zahiril Adzim), Ilham (Faizal Hussein) and Bakar (Pekin Ibrahim) returned to their hometown, Bunohan, all with their own individual intention and mission... The reunion was a bloody one as all three turned against each other in a dispute on inheritance and blood ties... 
First of all, I would like to congratulate Dain Said, the director of Bunohan for the success of making such high quality and in depth movie... I have to say, this is the best Malay movie I've ever seen so far... 
Okey, now lets move on to the analysis... Dear readers, bear in mind that this writing of mine is based on my own findings and it can be contradicting with your thoughts... If u find there's a need to correct me, please do so by leaving some comments on the comment section below...
The thing that first caught my attention and impressed me the most is the camera work... Instead of using basic camera techniques, Dain Said experimented with close ups and long shots, thus putting some artistic values in each movie frame and scene... For example, the part when Bakar had a conversation with his father, Pak Eng... Instead of just focusing on the conversation, the camera shifted focus on the whole house with Bakar and Pak Eng at the windows of their respected rooms... I was also wowed at the scene when Bakar killed his own father... Superb camera trick there...
Besides that, there are so many panoramic shots showing the vast area of greenery, indicating how beautiful and untouched most places in Kelantan are... 
The fact that the script is mostly Kelantanese is not the most unique feature of this movie... Instead, what makes it so special is the story line because there are so many hidden messages behind most of the scenes...
Bunohan is one of those slow movies that I don't really mind being slow... It starts with an enigma by showing two old folks talking about main puteri and saka leaving the audience blurred on what the movie is all about... Then, it blasts them with the intensity of a Muay Thai underground fight followed by a bloody riot and the portrayal of how badass Faizal Hussein is as a hitman... The movie then transits into a slower pace until the end...
However, the slow pace is not something to dread about as audience are treated with more enigmas and shocking revelations on what really happened in Bunohan and what triggered the family dispute... 
A straight forward movie is the least appropriate term to describe Bunohan... Like I said before, there are so many hidden messages in the scenes and here are some that I could figure out on my own... 
Lets start with the title, BUNOHAN... In Malay, Bunohan means "the killing" or "murder"... This could be a foreshadowing of how the story would be - full with blood spills and horrifying deaths... However, is it really that frank? I don't think so... 
I think that humans are not the only ones being killed in this movie... The massacre is also on the culture... Pak Wah had told us about it a few times by giving lectures on how humans had been destroying nature's gifts and thus the traditional ways of treating wounds and injuries are slowly fading and no longer practiced... 
The death of culture is also portrayed in Adil's action of declining the land inheritance... The land is actually a symbolism of culture... Instead of embracing his people's ways, Adil traveled far and learned Muay Thai which is a foreign martial arts... This sort of portrays the condition that is happening today where our youngsters prefer to embrace foreign ways of life instead of living their own... 
When Adil rejected the land inheritance, the old graves including his mother's, were dug out and the bones were thrown away in the wild... This shows how the rejection of culture inheritance by our future generation can lead to the tarnation of history...
Adil represents the young people of our country...
Whereas, Bakar represents the vicious modern businessmen and politicians... He's like Lynas... With the presence of Lynas, culture and nature will be destroyed... Bakar ordered the damnation of the graves and his project on the land shall destroy everything... 
Adil ignored the land and therefore it gave Bakar the chance to seize and manipulate it for his own profit... Young people are being ignorant on the importance of defending our country's resources and inheritance thus opening doors to businessmen to destroy culture and history... 
Bakar's vicious actions to gain the land obviously portrays the dirty games businessmen and politicians play in order to gain profit... At first, they play with words and when they're desperate, they go for the kill...
What about Ilham? What does he represents? I'm not so sure about it... I guess Ilham is a portrayal of those who stands between culture and foreign ways... Just like Adil, Ilham also traveled far and acquired foreign ways of living... However, despite of that, he still believe in his history and culture... He came back to Bunohan and gave effort in searching for the truth and restoring graves...
At the end of the day, both Adil and Ilham were killed in the name of business... It's nothing personal, it's just business... Before Adil learns about the real truth and proclaim the land, it's best for him to be eliminated... Ilham tried to protect Adil but he's also eliminated... Do you understand the symbolism? At the end of the day, Bakar is the only one who survived and gained profit out of the dispute...
The fact that they all are brothers indicates that the businessmen are actually killing their own people...
Another aspect that I'm not so sure of is the representation of the kid who tried to learn from Pak Eng... Who is he? and why is he so spooky? All I know is the conversation between the two old men at the beginning of the movie had to do with him... Maybe he's possessed by Pak Eng's spirit and acted as a gateway for the late Mek Yah to communicate with Pak Eng... 
To summarize, Bunohan is a slow paced movie with a really intriguing story with lots of hidden messages... For me, it's an extraordinary movie, on par with foreign indie movies and Oscar materials... 
Many complained about how Bunohan is not getting the appreciation it totally deserves... Well, as I were saying, Bunohan is on par with Oscar movies... Have you ever seen Oscar movies being celebrated on the blockbuster lists? Nope... but they sure win a lot of awards...
Yes, Bunohan should be awarded for it's artistic and moralistic values... Go Bunohan!!
