Mat Kilau reached RM90 million, Syamsul Yusof admits his film is not perfect

KUALA LUMPUR: Director Syamsul Yusof admits that the film Mat Kilau: The Rise of Heroes is not perfect even though it has been at the top of the box office charts in Malaysia for five weeks.

But at the same time, Syamsul thinks that laws and regulations in filmmaking should be seen from a subjective point of view because of the nature of art itself.

“Filem abang tak sempurna kalau ikut laws and rules of film making. I break all the rules just to please all of you Malaysian audience.

” In fact , who made laws in film making ? Sorry to ask, who is it? I don’t agree. Art is beautiful and very subjective to all.

“My brother is not smart. But filmmakers should follow their heart, not the book . And I believe that the late P. Ramlee is also like that, where he works according to his artistic heart,” wrote Syamsul on Instagram.

Mat Kilau: Kebangkitan Pahlawan , which has been broadcast for 33 days, has now recorded a quote of RM90 million, at the same time becoming the highest-quoted film in the country, surpassing Avengers: End Game which quoted RM87 million.

“Me and the whole team are very moved. Thank you to the audience for continuing to believe in this work and all my previous films. From the first film until now. God willing, hopefully it will continue to be inspired for future films,” he said in a statement today.

“It has been proven several times, Malay film works can still stand on their own land. This is a new hope for local cinema and for all the art children of the country. Come on all filmmakers, let’s unite so that we can all advance the Malaysian art industry,” he said.

Since it was first screened on June 23, the film, which was inspired by the history of the country, has managed to become one of the main conversations on social media in addition to evoking the spirit of heroism when many people dressed in Malay clothing when they came to the theaters.

The film, which cost RM8 million, is lined up with many great actors including Datuk Adi Putra, Beto Kusyairy, Fattah Amin, Wan Hanafi Su, Datuk Jalaluddin Hassan, Datuk Rahim Razali, Mubarak Majid, Shaharuddin Thamby, Namron, A. Galak, Ellie Suriaty, Khir Rahman and the Indonesian actor who made a name for himself in Hollywood, Yayan Ruhian.
