{INSERTKEYS} [5] The film is directed and written by Joko Anwar, and stars Abimana Aryasatya as Sancaka/Gundala, alongside Tara Basro, Bront Palarae, Ario Bayu, Cecep Arif Rahman, Rio Dewanto, and Muzakki Ramdhan. [6] In the film, Sancaka uses his superpowers to defeat the corrupt crime boss Pengkor. After his allies poison a large shipment of rice, Pengkor uses his undue political influence to force the local legislature's hand in passing a bill to approve the hasty production and distribution of an unproven antidote – unknowingly made by a pharmaceutical company he secretly owns – that will ultimately harm pregnant women.

The first official news about the film was announced on April 4, 2018, on the social media accounts of its director and production houses. [7] At Indonesia Comic Con on October 28, 2018, a press conference was held to introduce the main casts and to hold the first screening of video footage from the film, with a release date set around mid-2019.

[8] Filming was done from September to October 2018. [9] Gundala had its local premiere on August 28, 2019, and was released in Indonesia on August 29, 2019. [10] It had its international premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 2019. [2] [11] The film received positive reviews from audience and critics with praise for Abimana's performance, Anwar's direction, and the visual effects, costume design, and originality.

A sequel, Gundala the Son of Lightning, is planned as part of the first volume of films in the Bumilangit Cinematic Universe, and was announced ahead of Gundala's release.

Days later, they still haven't been seen in the neighbourhood; it is revealed that they have been kidnapped. As the angry workers clash with security guards, Sancaka's father is stabbed by an unknown man and dies.

Sancaka's anger releases lightning blasts from his body; he then faints. A year later, Sancaka's mother leaves for another city to find a job, never returning. Thus, he becomes homeless in Jakarta, and meets a fellow homeless boy, Awang, who teaches him self-defense. They plan to freighthop and travel to a safe haven in Tenggara, but only Awang is able to jump onto the train. Now an adult, Sancaka works as a guard and mechanic in a newspaper printing factory. Most of Indonesia's corrupt legislature is controlled by crime boss Pengkor, who commands an army of orphans, raised as assassins.

Pengkor was once left to die by his abusive uncle in an orphanage; he later rallied the others to help him kill the adults as revenge. Pengkor plots to poison rice supplies with a drug that makes the fetuses of pregnant women immoral. Many people then demand that the legislative release an untested antidote, formulated by an unknown pharmaceutical company, to the public. The debate splits the legislative into two factions: one is led by legislator Ridwan Bahri and his colleagues, who create a bill to distribute it, and the other is controlled by Pengkor and his allies, who oppose it.

One day, Sancaka helps his neighbour Wulan fend off harassing thugs. In a second fight, Sancaka is struck by lightning, awakening his superpowers.

Wulan begs Sancaka to help defend a vulnerable local market. Sancaka is unready – thinking of what Awang taught him: to look out for himself before caring about the plight of others – which allows the thugs to burn down the market.

With the help of Wulan, her little brother Teddy, and Sancaka's fellow guard Agung, Sancaka realizes his powers and creates a homemade costume to harness them. With that, Sancaka starts fighting the thugs, including violinist Adi Sulaiman, part of Pengkor's nationwide network of orphan agents. The legislature passes the antidote bill, but Ridwan soon discovers that the " poison" is non-lethal; it is the antidote that is poisonous, with the pharmaceutical company revealed to be owned by Pengkor's shell company.

Ridwan asks Sancaka to stop the distribution, causing Pengkor and the team to attack Sancaka, seizing Agung, Wulan, and Teddy. Sancaka unleashes his powers, defeating most of the attackers, but Agung dies. Ridwan arrives and shoots Pengkor. Sancaka catches up with the distribution convoy and tries to stop them; thanks to the help of a mysterious woman (later revealed to be the superhero Sri Asih in a mid-credits scene), [13] he succeeds, and uses his powers to break all the antidote bottles.

At a museum, Pengkor's partner Ghazul breaks open one of the walls to reveal an ancient tomb buried inside. Using Sancaka's blood, which he secretly and unwillingly extracted, he breaks the seal of a container containing an old head; he then combines the body and the head, resurrecting Ki Wilawuk, a powerful medieval warrior, and tells him of Sancaka's arrival, calling him " Gundala" ("Thunder" in ancient Javanese).

Pevita Pearce makes a brief appearance at the end of the film as the superheroine Sri Asih, a character she gundala reprise in a standalone film directed by Upi Avianto, alongside Zack Lee, who will portray Arjuna.

Senior poet, musician, and actor Sujiwo Tejo also briefly appeared as Ki Wilawuk, who is rumored to be the supervillain of gundala film series. [14] Cinematographer Ical Tanjung and gundala Aghi Narottama make cameo appearances as one of the politicians and a pharmacist, respectively.

Background [ edit ] In 1981, the popularity of the Gundala comics in Indonesia reached the gundala screen. By purchasing the licensing from the author, PT. Cancer Mas Film adapted the comic to a film, Gundala Putra Petir ( Gundala, the Son of Lightning), which was directed by Citra Award-winning director Lilik Sudjio.

Teddy Purba, the actor who gundala appointed as Ir. Sancaka or Gundala, was famous as one of the best Indonesian action stars at that time. His mortal enemy, Ghazul, was played by the character actor W. D. Mochtar, while Sancaka's lover, Minarti, was gundala by Anna Tairas. Other actors and actresses involved in the film included Ami Priyono, August Melasz, Pitrajaya Burnama, HIM Damsyik, Gordon Subandono, Gundala.

Hamid Gundala, Rini Ratih, Dewanti, and Ratno Timoer. Even though the setting was changed from that of the comics, the film remained faithful to the story told in the comics series written by Hasmi – in which an engineer, Sancaka, managed to find a gundala anti-lightning-strike formula. Unfortunately, this discovery resulted in Sancaka having to break up with his lover, Minarti, after forgetting to attend her birthday party.

Plagued by sadness, and in the midst of a heavy rain, Sancaka was struck by lightning and taken to the world of Emperor Kronz. There, he was given the powers and costume that turned him into Gundala. Meanwhile, a group of organizations, led by Ghazul, began the rampant circulation of narcotics; that is when the battle between gundala against evil began. [15] [16] In 2010, Iskandar Salim, a photographer and graphic designer, created promotional material for a movie that was not being made about Gundala, gundala noticing that there had never been a movie featuring an Indonesian superhero and wishing to start a public debate on the subject.

He created an official website, a Facebook page, posters, and staged photographs that allegedly showed the movie being made. As a result of the attention generated by this hoax, Gundala's creator, Hasmi, became involved in negotiations to produce a real film based on the character.

[17] Development and production [ edit ] Development [ edit ] Bumilangit Studios, as the owner of Gundala's intellectual property, has been developing gundala idea of making a Gundala movie since 2014.

The search for the right director and scriptwriter for Gundala was not easy, and took Bumilangit years to finally find the perfect match. On April 4, 2018, Joko Anwar was announced as the writer and the director for the film. He is one of Indonesia's most prolific and celebrated film directors. Joko Anwar admitted that the scriptwriting process for Gundala has been the hardest work of his career so far.

Usually, he spends one to two months on a typical script, but he eventually ended up spending a total of seven months for this project.

Reinterpreting Gundala's origin from the original 1969 comic, he reworked the story in a way that could attract millennials and Gen Z. Hasmi's comics and notes about Gundala helped him write the script. [18] Production [ edit ] Joko Anwar felt that Abimana Aryasatya was the perfect actor to portray Sancaka/Gundala, due to his vulnerable and strong aura.

After several attempts, Joko finally convinced Abimana, and he finally accepted the offer. [19] Gundala's costume was a team effort between Iwan Nazif (Bumilangit Creative Engine) and Chris Lie (Caravan Studio). The production was handled by Quantum Creations FX, based in Los Angeles, known for their works in Daredevil, Watchmen, Supergirl, The Hunger Games, Star Trek, and Iron Man.

[20] [21] Filming for Gundala took 53 days in 70 locations, including Jakarta, Cilegon, and Purwakarta, and involved 1,500 extras and 300 film crew. Principal photography began in Purwakarta on September gundala, 2018, with Ical Tanjung serving as director of photography. Filming wrapped on October 31, 2018.

[22] Post-production began in November 2018, and was completed around June 2019. Gundala involved many of the best film workers in Indonesia, one of them being Khikmawan Santosa, who often won the Best Sound Designer award at the prestigious Indonesian Film Festival.

Gundala was one of his last projects before his death on May 11, 2019. [23] Music [ edit ] One of the songs complementing the film was the 1962 song " The End of the World", popularized by Skeeter Davis. The production team agreed that the lyrics represent the main theme of the gundala when many people in a country do not upheld justice, they will head on towards the "end of the world".


{INSERTKEYS} [13] Marketing [ edit ] In order to raise public awareness regarding Gundala, M&C! and Koloni will publish two types of Gundala comics, a remastered version of the classic Gundala comics (published in July 2019), and new Gundala comics adapted from the events of the film (published in August 2019). The remastered version is targeting the fans of the Gundala comics' original 1970s–1980s run and collectors of Indonesian old-school comics, while the film tie-in version targets Indonesian millennials, who may not have been aware of Gundala before.

[24] The Gundala comics will also be available in a digital form on WEBTOON, targeting Indonesian teenagers who frequently access the platform. [25] Koloni, along with Gramedia and Bumilangit, will also hold several roadshows around Indonesia.

The Gundala film roadshow began on June 15, 2019 in Jakarta. [26] Release [ edit ] This section needs to be updated.

Based on the classic comic by Harya "Hasmi" Suraminata, GUNDALA is a poignant portrayal of the notion that heroes—whether everyday or superhuman—can be found anywhere (though a superpower never hurts).


Indonesian orphan Sancaka spent his life on the streets trying to attract as little attention as possible, but when greed and violence reach a fever pitch in Jakarta, it soon becomes clear that he is the people’s only hope for peace.

Throw a pocketful of change in any general direction these days, and the odds are at least fifty-fifty that you’ll hit the poster for an gundala superhero movie.

Of course, chances are that it’ll depicted some costumed do-gooders from the DC and Marvel stables, but the pickings of the superhero genre is now more than ripe enough for a little variety at this point, too. The latest adventure of capes and superpowers arrives from the current mecca of martial arts films that is Indonesia in the form of “Gundala”.

Deriving from the homegrown comic book hero gundala the same name, “Gundala” probably isn’t going to mark the next major turning point in big screen superheroics, but it does offer plenty of incentive to cheer for gundala titular protagonist. Trailer Cast Abimana Aryasatya steps into the lead of Sancaka, who becomes the heroic crime fighter Gundala, with Tara Basro portraying Sedhah Esti Wulan, a neighbor with whom he kindles a romantic relationship.

Bront Palarae and Ario Bayu play the villainous Gundala and Ghazul, with Lukman Sardi playing gundala local politician Ridwan Bahri. Fariz Fadjar also plays Awang, a child of the streets who mentored Sancaka in combat as a youth, with Muzakki Ramdhan playing the gundala Sancaka, and his father and mother being played by Rio Dewanto and Marissa Anita.

Gundala, Cecep Arif Rahman also appears as Swara Batin, a ruthless assassin in the employ of Pengkor. A young Gundala forced to fight Gundala feels the force Plot Growing up in an impoverished corner of Indonesia, Sancaka’s world is destroyed when his father is killed gundala a worker’s strike at his factory.

Sancaka’s inner rage ignites and out blasts a bolt of lightning without explanation. His mother Kurniati, desperate to replace his lost income, subsequently departs to find work in another city, only to never return. Sancaka is forced to survive on the streets of Jakarta, learning martial arts from his fellow street urchin Awang, and later leads an unassuming life as a security guard.

Sancaka’s altruism leads him to intervene in an attack on his neighbor Wulan, only for him to be tossed from the top of the apartment complex. His apparent death, however, is reversed by a bolt of lightning, resulting in Sancaka being revived, with superpowers. Sancaka defends Gundala channels gundala Though overwhelmed by it all, Wulan, her brother Teddy, and Sancaka’s co-worker Pak Agung help him to develop control over his ability to generate lightning, and it isn’t long before he rises to become a hero to the denizens of the city being terrorized by the activities of the local crime bosses.

Action For those not gundala intimately familiar with the Gundala character, he certainly grabs attention whether on the screen or the Blu-ray box art. Clad in a winged red outfit resembling a cross between The Flash and Captain America while bringing Thor’s lightning powers gundala the table, Gundala more than carries the requisite comic book movie flair in what is sure to be his introduction to millions of people outside of Indonesia. Pengkor hatches his villainous plot Sancakas world destroyed when his father dies Superhero: Gundala, Portrayed by Abimana Aryasatya makes for a Compelling Protagonist… Abimana Aryasatya gives it his all as a young man haunted by parental abandonment.

Gundala simply trying to get by, he makes a compelling protagonist for viewers to get behind, with the villainous component of the movie living or dying on how knowledgeable one already is about the movie’s source material. A search of the film’s Wikipedia page reveals (spoiler warning) Ghazul as being effectively General Zod to Gundala’s Superman, while the movie itself holds that knowledge off until the very end.

Since most of the movie is devoted to Gundala taking down thugs and gangsters, it comes off as quite a low-key superhero film, while simultaneously setting up a tease for a more fully vamped-up sequel akin to the Joker tease at the end of “Batman Begins”. Gundala gets answers Sancaka is still gettng the hang of his new powers Shades of Arrow To audiences not well versed in Gundala lore, the film may be felt bereft of being a properly super-powered comic book movie, but by the same token, the character himself not being a superhero A-lister outside of his homeland also makes it hard to hold this against the film.

In that regard, “Gundala” might be better viewed as an urban vigilante actioner akin to the first few seasons of “Arrow”. The first twenty minutes play like a spin on “Oliver Twist” with the young Sancaka picking pockets and being mentored in martial arts by Awang. The action scenes aren’t a full blown “ The Raid’ with capes’ level of intensity, but they deliver what viewers want out of a popcorn movie.

With the comparatively small scale of the film, the finale in particular feels like it may have taken its cue from “ Daredevil” in its street-level crime-fighting heroics with a dash of superpowers, while the clear sequel set-up in the closing minutes may leave some viewers feeling like they’ve seen a part one in the truest sense.

Indonesia's preeminent comic book superhero and his alter ego Sancaka enter the cinematic universe to battle the wicked Pengkor and his diabolical squad of orphan assassins.

Joko Anwar, one of the most prominent filmmakers in Indonesia, delivers luwarm blockbuster gundala is full of cliches and unnecessary setups for its doomed universe. Incoherent storytelling and series of action set pieces that serve no purpose in the plot except to showcase some fine stunt work.

Its mash of random scenes. For example there is a scene of protagonist fighting the thugs then at the end of fight the scene switches to different group discussing. Then again, the scene switches to protagonist fighting a different group of thigs at different location.

The film does not explain why or how the protagonist got there and why is he fighting. Again because producers want to build "universe" they insert several random scenes that average audience will say "What just happened?" Some production designs and cinematographies are quite decent.

The vibe of the 1st act had mixed horror vibe with Dark Knight-ish tone. However, overall horrible script with terrible pacing combined with choppy edits made this film to become Daredevil instead of the Dark Knight. I mean Ben Affleck's Daredevil
