"AKU TAKKAN MATI!" - Mona Fandey



I believe i am not alone on this but im sure most of you feel the same. I am very frustrated and bewildered. I just cant seem to face the fact that i WILL NEVER get to watch the film DUKUN! The issue that clouded over the release of this movie never gotten resolved and remains shelved somewhere not certain that it will ever see the light of day in cinemas!


SYNOPSIS
Tracing her origins to a rogue tribe of Batak women shamans who have passed their black magic tradition down through generations, Diana is – consort to the Snake Gods, mysterious and enigmatic; a tease, a flirt, a temptress, a murderer; she wants to be adored and feared at the same time. Diana knows that according to her occult practices, those who keep spirits will die a most painful death that far surpasses hanging. She has to find a way to avoid this horrific end. Diana slowly wins over Karim (her lawyer) who struggles with the dilemma between his professionalism and his human qualities. In a cruel twist of fate, Karim will be the person who helps solve her problem. When this happens, the audience will realize the terrible meaning of Diana’s words, “I Will Never Die”. In one way or another those who come close to Diana will die a physical, emotional or spiritual death.

This movie had big names like Umie Aida and Faizal Hussein jumping on board as the main casts of this film. New comer back then Elyana was to be making her debut in this film. Plus it was to be produced by ASTRO SHAW! One of THE BIGGEST ENTERTAINMENT company in Malaysia.

When the trailer of this film was released to public in cinemas and on the internet, rumors flew so quickly about the current families of Mona Fandey and Datuk Mazlan Idris were going to serve a lawsuit against ASTRO SHAW if they were to ever release the movie on the basis of defamation on the family. ASTRO SHAW's defence towards this lawsuit was simply that this movie had NOTHING to do with actual events when on the other hand as you could see from the trailer that it mentioned in CAPS i mind you, BASED ON A TRUE STORY! What bothers me the most was WHY NOW? The film is finally completed and is waiting to be released, all of a sudden these families start to resurface and start all sorts of nonsense? Its not as if they were clueless about this film and never knew it was in the works to be made. The making of this film was PUBLISHED in news articles throughout 2006! Where have you guys been to have not known about this?


Dukun is widely believed to be based on the infamous case of Mona Fandey, the bomoh who, together with her accomplices, murdered Batu Talam assemblyman Datuk Mazlan Idris in 1993. Those who lived through the time when this case was splashed every single day since the day that they found his body would know what im talking about. For those of you who don't know what im talking about this is recap of what she did.

MONA FANDEY CASE

Perhaps one of the most sensational and unusual cases of modern times in the Far East reached its conclusion on November 2nd, 2001 when, her husband Affandi Abdul Rahman and their 31 year old helper, Juraimi Hussin, were hanged at Malaysia's Kajang Prison on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.

Maznah was better known as Mona Fandey, which was her stage name, when she performed as a pop singer and water ballet dancer in her younger days. When her earlier career ran out of steam, she and Affandi made a living as witch doctors and were known locally as "bomohs."

In July 1993, an assemblyman for central Pahang state, Datuk Mazlan Idris, had approached Mona for supernatural help to boost his political career and climb the party ladder. He was persuaded by the couple to take part in a ritual in which he was to lay on the floor with his eyes closed waiting for the money to "fall from the sky." No money fell, instead it was the blade of an axe. Idris was decapitated and then dismembered and partially skinned. His body was found cut up into 18 parts and buried in a hole near Mona's home in the state of Pahang, about 130 kilometres northeast of Kuala Lumpur. Mazlan was reported missing on July the 2nd, 1993. The day after the killing, Mona went on a shopping spree in Kuala Lumpur and later bought herself a Mercedes-Benz and had a facelift.

It would be such a disappointment that this film never makes it to our cinemas. According to the production team who had seen the final cut that it was just simply of VERY HIGH QUALITY AND THE BEST ACTING so far in Malaysian cinema.

Salam sejahtera semua..Sebagai anak jati Raub, aku begitu sedih dgn peristiwa pembunuhan kejam yg dilakukan oleh Mona Fandey ni..Seram jugak la aku sebab aku org Raub ni. Thn 1993 kejadian ni berlaku. Tp aku rasa, org Raub ni bukan kolot sgt percaya pd bomoh2 ni..Semua tu mesti ada tujuan tertentu..Muslihat bomoh mcm ni la yg org Raub tk akan taksub punya..
