One Two Jaga‘ is the latest local film that has gotten everyone talking, and for good reason!

The film, directed by Shahili Abdan (aka Nam Ron), was initially released in April 2018 and was even nominated for Best Feature Film at the 17th New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) on 29th June. 

Now, the movie has officially started screening in local cinemas since last Thursday (6th September) and it has received an overwhelming response from local netizens over the weekend.

One Two Jaga‘ tells the story of a local police officer named Hussein (played by Zahiril Adzim) working to expose his corrupt superiors, while also focusing on the plight of Indonesian workers who face many obstacles due to the authorities wanting to take bribes. Many Malaysians including local activists have praised the film as it carried an important message.

While many have praised the film and director Nam Ron for its ambition, there have also been calls to boycott it for allegedly depicting Malaysian police as corrupt. According to a source, a number of law enforcement officers were offended by ‘One Two Jaga‘ and have made a pact to boycott the film, reported Utusan Online.

However, the director explained to the New Straits Times that the movie wasn’t anti-police, saying,

“It’s an anti-graft film, not an anti-police film. It does not target any individual in the police force. It merely states what all of us know full well, that there are bribe-takers amongst the police who extort money from the rakyat.”

“The police cooperated fully with us in the making of the film. Thus, it cannot be anti-police!”
