Thong and Sroi live in the Thai countryside and share a secret love for each other. When Sroi’s well-intentioned but overbearing aunt discovers the romance, she sends Sroi, along with her quirky maid, Juei, to the bustling Thai metropolis of Bangkok.

Yam, a down-at-heel animal lover, is in love with Juei. Both he and Thong pine for the two absent women. Will they be reunited? Has Sroi's aunt found a suitable suitor for her niece?


The guy on the VCD cover looks familiar. Upon going through the reviews of the other Thai movies under Sawasdee Collection, we realize that we have seen him in Ghost Variety, and also action blockbusters Ong Bak, Tom Yum Goong and Chai-Lai Angels.

This guy (if you really had to know, his name is Phetthai Wongkhamlao) sure has a funny face which has the words “laugh at me” written all over it, and he has directed his own full length feature, which incidentally is a hoot to watch.

In this 2005 movie, he plays an animal lover who is in love with a maid (after watching No-Hin: The Movie, we asked ourselves what’s with Thai movies portraying their protagonists as maids?). Together with another lovelorn bloke, the misfit duo travels from the rural village to the bustling city to look for their true love.

Sounds like a kitschy story? Well, to affirm your doubts – it is.

And the 96-minute picture seems proud of it too. Expect nothing serious from this song-and-dance slapstick comedy. The colors are deliberately flashy and bright. Unabashed shades of pink, orange and yellow are splashed across the screen. This definitely makes the viewing experience a happy and stress-free one.

Every character is endearing in his or her little ways. We love the nagging aunt and her overdressed outfit, we love the idiosyncratic maid and her oversized umbrella, and we definitely love the two male leads’ goofiness.

And you also know that the movie is out to give everyone a good time when there are a whole ten minutes of end credits, making us cackle at its numerous NG takes and tacky songs. A movie that brings with it a whole load of good-natured laughs? Now, that’s rare.
