Fresh News & Updates

It is rare for me to get excited about Malaysian television, but once in a blue moon, something different comes along, something fresh, something to get excited about. Ponti Anak Remaja is one of it. Starts out as a telemovie, it’s now made into a drama series, premiering on Astro Ria on 25th October 2010 (tomorrow).

I did not manage to watch the Ponti Anak Remaja telemovie on Astro Ria, but somehow, thanks the the Internet, Youtube that is, I could. Call it piracy, call it whatever you want, but thanks to someone who took the time to upload it piece by piece, I manage to watch something that I miss out. Check out the trailer to the telemovie :-

Ponti Anak Remaja, tells a story about a three biotech college student, a sibling and their cousin, when on a search for a special kind of flower for an experiment one of them have to do for his extra credit assignment. They ended up bringing back a young teenage vampire instead. The closest translation to the Malay term ‘Pontianak’ is ‘Vampire’. But Malay vampire folklore, are not the same with the Hollywood version. If you manage to put a nail at the behind of the Pontianak’s neck, they’ll turn into a human.

So this teenage vampire turned human, and she wants to be human. She is fascinated with the human world. They manage to somehow enroll her in the collage, and unlike any other normal human teenager, this teenage vampire actually likes learning. Ponti Anak Remaja has the basics of ‘The Little Mermaid’ type of storyline, and it’s executed well in this telemovie.

The whole telemovie has just enough drama and comedy to keep you entertained. So what if the bio science talk is a little be off, it’s fiction, you don’t need to be accurate. So kudos to The Media Hustler, you guys really did a good job on this. The casts also did a good job. Their performances was fun to watch.

I don’t normally do this, I’m going to include the Youtube video of the whole Ponti Anak Remaja telemovie, so that you don’t have to search for them on Youtube.
