Last year became a sweet moment full of nostalgia for Indonesian netizens, when the three main characters of Lembergar were portrayed on the screen through DOA (Doyok Otoy Ali Oncom): Cari Jodoh, in which Doyok was played by Fedi Nuril, Otoy by Pandji Pragiwaksono and also Ali Oncom was portrayed by Dwi Sasono.
Dwi Sasono has starred in more than 40 feature movies, several sitcoms and dozens of television sequels with “Best Male Lead Actor” title at the Indonesian Film Festival (FFI) 2006 and “The Chosen Male Lead Actor” at the Jakarta Film Festival 2006. Dwi’s acting skills got praised and nominated as the “Most Favorite Supporting Actor” at the 2007 MTV Indonesia Movie Awards. Since then he keeps on obtaining achievements and more awards.
Earlier this year, Dwi showed up in the theaters through the movie Dua Garis Biru that did amazingly well portraying the character of a father. In June, a sequel of DOA was released in the movies called Mendadak Kaya and he maintains his character as Ali Oncom perfectly. “Starting from the reading process to the character developments, it’s really challenging. Since our characters came from a comic book, we can only observe them physically, instead of the way they talk and walk; these things were never visualized, so it’s not difficult, we can portray them in our own way.”
