This coming Hari Raya, fans of local musical comedies should not miss the chance to watch the movie "Gangsterock".
The RM 1.5 million musical comedy, which began filming last year on 11th January 2014, will be making its big screen debut on 17th July 2015, has been conceptualized, written, directed and scripted by experienced actor Soffi Jikan. It stars Soffi himself in the lead role , alongside well-known actors Khir Rahman, Izara Aishah, Saiful Apek and Sharifah Amani.
This movie is about Shake (Soffi), an aspiring rock star who tries to get fellow rockers in Kuala Lumpur together to overcome obstacles posed by gangsters who are involved in music piracy. Despite being his first full length directorial debut, Soffi is no stranger to the role, having directed several shorts and telemovies.
And oh, this is also the last movie of Allahyarham Harun Salim Bachik (...Al Fatihah..) who passed away in the midst of filming, thus some of his scenes had to be done using CGI scenes just like what the Fast and the Furious 7 did for Paul Walker...
Sypnosis: Shake (Soffi Jikan) an aspiring musician tries his luck in Kuala Lumpur to establish himself as a rock star. He hooks up with Bromo (Saiful Apek) who wants to help him. Unfortunately, there are gangsters in Kuala Lumpur who are determined control the music distribution trade with music piracy, and eliminate any remaining opposition from rockers. Only with true rock spirit can the rockers unite against the cruelty and find a way out. Can they succeed coming together?
