Indonesian comedy movie, Mendadak Kaya has hit the theaters on June 20. The movie is based on a comic strip in a local newspaper and the movie version is portrayed by Dwi Sasono, Pandji Pragiwaksono, Fedi Nuril and Jihane Almira.
Although having a different story line than the previous sequel, DOA: Cari Jodoh, Mendadak Kaya still features three main characters namely Doyok, Otoy and Ali Oncom (DOA). Here, we saw Pandji Pragiwaksono portrayed the character of Otoy. “In my opinion, the story of rags to riches is always relevant, because it’s everyone’s fantasy; the premise of almost all sequels in Indonesia is always like that,” he stated.
What makes the movie different from its prequel is the location, that includes a spot abroad. “Once when we did our reading, we shot an idea while we were joking about going to shoot a scene in Hong Kong and the director heard it and talked about it to the producer, then the producer decided to make it to reality. We were shocked when we really went to Hong Kong for a shooting!”
