The release of acclaimed Malaysian film maker Datin Paduka Shuhaimi Baba’s movie Tanda Putera, about the most trying time and crisis two selfless leaders went through between May 1969 till January 1976, has been postponed to an undisclosed time.
It doesn’t make sense at to postpone the release of the movie because of “activities”.
It was previewed to a selected audience including media on 17 July. Almost all who prevalently exited out from the cinema after the movie screened, were teary-eyed. They saw how the two leaders’ challenges and sacrifices to put Malaysia back on the rail towards unity, togetherness, progress and most important of all, mending the wounds of bloody racial riot of 13-16 May in the path of challenges from the extremists, subversive elements and communist terrorism.
And all agreed that Tanda Putera is a great movie and its sense of historical events and all the mitigating circumstances of these events should be portrayed to Malaysians, especially the younger generation, so that the nation shall not repeat these events.
