Lagenda Budak Setan
Kasyah (Farid Kamil) is a troublemaker in high school but things change when he meets Ayu (Lisa Surihani) and she accepts him. However, Kasyah has to go to a village to complete his thesis which forces him to part with Ayu. She then meets her ex-lover Azmi (Que Haidar) who pursues her. “Lagenda Budak Setan” is adapted from the popular 1985 Ahadiat Akashah novel of the same name.
This is a movie that’s adapted from Ahadiat Akashah novel, and I might say it has done justice to it.
The director did a splendid job with the direction. The plot was clear, there’s excellent dialogues, but however the editing could be better.
I also wasn’t convinced with the chemistry among the cast. There’s a certain miscast to it, but nothing major that would jeopardize the film credibility.
It’s one of the better Malaysian film production out there.
