What is Makmum?
A makmum means a follower in Arabic who join in on a solat prayer after the imam (leader) precedes them.
Bear this in mind that “Makmum” is NOT a name of a ghost
but this film use this a reference of the horror felt
by the characters who is doing their solat prayers.
This movie is about the mysterious figure who used to be a resident of a female dormitory
and haunts these 3 female students (Nurul, Nisa & Putri) who are performing their solat prayers.
These 3 students are not allowed to leave the dormitory due to their poor academic results.
Most of the students are not around BECAUSE IT IS SCHOOL HOLIDAY.
Totally smart way of saving cost of not paying a lot of actors/actress.
The dormitory are left with the 3 students, the headmistress (Ms Rosa),
ex-headmistress (Mrs Kinanti) and her husband.
Putri have been continuously possessed by the mystery figure
ever since they are not allowed to leave the dormitory.
As Mrs Kinanti was aware that the dormitory is increasingly disturbing,
they decided to seek help from Rini (ex dormitory student) to assist them to uncover the mystery.
As the movie progresses and strange happenings grow more aggressive,
the story takes a huge twist as the buried secrets of the dormitory begin to unfold.
All this things happen for a reason and its all related to Mrs Kinanti + Rini + Putri.
It is a simple storyline that use religion as a source to bring out fear from people.
I personally find that this movie teaches us about our faith to Allah
and the disturbance that we have to face through during our prayers is a test by Allah.
It can also be in bad angle because the movie may develop some viewers of fear praying alone.
All depends on individuals and how strong your faith to Allah.
I highly recommend you to watch and we shouldn’t be terrified as this really teaches us about our faith.
How This Movie Started???
It started by Riza Pahlevi & his university friends who actually made
the short movie clip on YouTube in 2015 about the presence of “someone”
that haunts people who are performing their solat prayers alone.
Some will remember and some can’t recall...So yah..
I’m going to show you the short clip that made this movie.
