Somebody asked me "What do you think of the part when Mahesh and Melor slept on the same pillow?"
I answered. "Big Deal. Once, I woke up with two drunk chinese friends sleeping under my bed when my family weren't home."
"Really? Makelah a review of Talentime from your point of view!"
Oh well, I read many reviews of this movie and all the reviews will come to the same conclusion anyway and so will mine (so what's the point?) I can certainly see why people crave for that type of thing to happen in real life. Inter-racial friends, relationships, love etc.
I think at some point in my life, I've encountered situations where the complexity of racial and cultural differences arised. Here are some bits of my childhood stories:
So Talentime is basically a tale that many malays, chinese or indians do not get to experience unless they are schooled in predominantly mixed schools or private schools in Perak, Kuala Lumpur or Penang where English is the main medium of communication.
I'm just fortunate enough to have my very own muhibbah upbringing for me to yawn in scenes where most Malaysians will be appalled or surprised to watch.
