So yours truly was over at the GSC Pavilion KL to attend the Gala Premier of Ayat-Ayat Cinta 2, an anticipated Indonesian love story sequel of the very successful Ayat-Ayat Cinta.. and the cinema was packed with over 500 invited guests of Antenna Entertainments who were more then thrilled to be able to watch the Indonesian Blockbuster way ahead of their friends...



The Gala premier was attended by members of the media, notable local celebrities as well as some VIPs... and the cast of the movie who were flown down from Indonesia along with the producer himself, Mr Manoj Punjabi...



This 125-minute long movie, directed by Guntur Soehardjanto is a continuation of the previous movie, Ayat-Ayat Cinta 2, which continues with Fahri Abdullah (Fedi Nuril) living alone in Edinburgh, with his Turkish assistant Hulusi (Pandji Pragiwaksono)...

He is also facing problems with his neighbours, the snobbish and stand offish Keira McGills (Chelsea Islan) a talented violinist who blames Fahri, for being a Muslim and her brother Jason, because the siblings believed it was a Muslim terrorist who had caused the death of their father and ruined their family..

 There is a judgmental Jewish elderly lady, Catarina (Dewi Irawan) who is having problems with her stepson... 



Fahri tries to continue running his wife's will of helping the people around him... even though his good intentions are sometimes misinterpreted and cause more problems for him... 


Life turns complicated when the now grown up and beautiful Hulya (Tatjana Saphira) who is also Aisha's cousin, turns up and starts showing an interest in Fahri... 


Hulya is more then willing to replace Aisha's role in Fahri's life. Fahri however is hesitating to open his heart as he still hopes for Aisha to reappear...


A mysterious lady, Sabina (Dewi Sandra), who also wears the purdah turns up in need of help, claiming she lost her husband and is harassed by others.. causing Fahri to take pity on her and insist that she stay with them as a household helper...


So is Hulya successful in replacing Aisha in Fahri's heart... Who is Sabina... 



Do watch this kinda tragical love story which is also starring our local stars, Nur Fazura and Bront Palarae...
