“OPPA” is a film adaptation of a true story that tells how a romantic and touching love story turns into an unexpected online love scam! The main target of the 90-minute feature film is Malaysian cinema. Filming will officially begin in the Klang Valley area in April 2023. The production is expected to be completed in June and arranged to participate in domestic and foreign feature film creation competitions and major film festivals. At the same time, we will submit the end product to the Malaysian Film Board for early review. From July to the pre-release period, we will also work with the Commercial Crime Investigation Department of the Royal Malaysian Police to launch nationwide publicity and “OPPA” is expected to be screened in cinemas from August to September 2023. We are now in contact with the major film distributors and the domestic and foreign online film platforms on the possibility of transnational screening.
As online fraud is getting more serious, Dream Film Sdn Bhd, since June 2022, has conceptualized creating an awareness film. Many career women, especially teachers, single mothers, divorced women, and even married women, are all “trapped” in the tricks of online love scammers, resulting in a lot of debt, bankruptcy, and even unable to withstand the emotional stress of being cheated, and many choose to commit suicide. Besides, men are also targeted by online fraud syndicates, taking pictures and videos of nude chats that have become tools for extortion.
After several in-depth discussion meetings between Dream Film Sdn Bhd and the Royal Malaysian Police, they finally agreed to contribute their best efforts to the anti-fraud operation. Although it is impossible to eliminate fraud cases, cooperation between the police and the people will surely increase the wisdom of the people and protect their money and lives!
The director of “OPPA”, is Captain Denil, who previously won awards in France, Taiwan and other countries with his works such as “SCAR”, “BE A STAR”, and “WE ARE STILL LIVING”. He has adjusted the original script no less than eight times to make this movie even more unexpected plot twists. Fortunately, he got the support of the director and the team of scriptwriters, and now the script is almost ready. Especially the part of the complete script related to the police procedure must be filmed according to the criminal case (MO) of the police to achieve the effect of the fact situation, and cannot just be imagined.
In addition to explaining the intention and origin of the awareness film “OPPA” to the mainstream media, the press conference and the screening opening ceremony also surprise the media and the audience! To make the awareness film “OPPA” closer to the current film market trend, Dream Film Sdn Bhd has made a significant investment by inviting Jang TAE-OH, an artist of the Korean entertainment industry, to act as the protagonist who will give extraordinary in the film “OPPA”. Jang TAE-OH, who has starred in many dramas, movies and advertisements in Korea, is very excited to participate in the first Malaysia awareness film, “OPPA”. TAE-OH, who is very good at English, will speak in Korean and English in his acting, and his pairing with female lead Tien JAC is sure to be looked forward to.
Responding to the theme of a civilized Malaysian Malaysia organized by the Prime Minister, this awareness film “OPPA” not only has actors from the three Malaysian races but also does not limit the language of presentation. The film will have Malay, English, Chinese, Hindi, and Korean dialogues. It can introduce multi-racial language and culture in Malaysia to a large audience abroad. In addition, invite famous domestic entertainers, singers, Internet celebrities and others as guest artists. At the same time, “key figures” from the Commercial Crime Investigation Department of the Royal Malaysian Police will also appear as significant actors who solve cases in the film.
Currently, the awareness film “OPPA” also has active involvement among businessmen. For the sake of a better and safer Malaysia, we will work hard.
