Bisnis.com, JAKARTA – Some cinematographic titles of Indonesia emit in cinemas. The two films that had just been transmitted and became conversations were "A Man Called Ahok" and "Hanum & Rangga."
In addition to opening on November 8, many viewers unite the two films with the political tension of the country that is warming up. As is known, the movie "A Man Called Ahok" is the story of former DKI Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) who is controversial.
Meanwhile, the movie "Hanum & Rangga" was removed from the story of the founding daughter of PAN, Amien Rais, Hanum Salsabiela Rais, which was very contradictory to Ahok. Although, both films have familiar themes and there is no political element.
By informing the filmindonesia.or.id website, "A man named Ahok" has obtained 587,747 spectators in just 4 days of broadcast or until Sunday, November 11.
This achievement is fantastic. The film, directed by Putrama Tuta, has become the best selling Indonesian film in the last week.
Daniel Mananta, Ahok's actor in the movie could not cover emotion when he discovered that the movie starred in more than half a million viewers in 4 days.
"Thanks to God and thanks for all who see," wrote through the account of Instagram @vjdaniel, Monday (11/12/2018).
Unfortunately, the same achievement can not be pursued by Hanum Rais. Although Rio Dewanto and Acha Septriasa starred, the films "Hanum and Rangga" only received 201,378 spectators.
The first day of the show, on November 8, "A Man Called Ahok" was quite strong, winning 103,002 spectators, while the movie "Hanum & Rangga" was only seen by 45,123 spectators.
Not only that, the achievements of the film "Hanum and Rangga" are currently being questioned in several parts due to the PAN DPP viral letter that ordered their paintings to watch the films "Hanum and Rangga."
Meanwhile, Hanum Rais, who is the daughter of politician Amien Rais, sent a letter to the Chancellor of the University of Muhammadiyah Surakarta (UMS) who had an invitation to see the films "Hanum & Rangga". In the letter, Hanum also asked the Chancellor to provide the promotional film by putting posters in the middle of the campus.
So, can the movie "Hanum and Rangga" turn the audience into "A Man Called Ahok"? Who's the biggest movie star? Hope next.
