This drama tells the story of two male twins, Watit and Ruth, who were separated from each other, leading completely different lives. One twin belongs to the high society in the big city while the other one leads a modest but good life in the countryside. When Watit, the twin from the big city gets hurt by someone, the father asks Ruth, the other twin to take the life of his severely ill twin, leading a life under his name by pretending to be his unknown brother in hope to find the person who tried to kill his brother. The main heroine, Metinee, is the bride-to-be of Watit. But their engagement is only based of a business deal and not of affection. When his brother replaces him, she doesn't notice the substitution at first and marries him anyway. But she gradually begins to realize that he is a different man, slowly falling in love with his different attitude.
Cast & Credits
The chemistry that I saw in Sud Sai Pan between View and Toom was sadly lacking in this one. Maybe the scenes with the chemistry were shown when I must have dozed off a dozen times watching this. As far as the bad guys; Easy deaths and all that 'forgiveness, I've seen the error of my ways' scenes. Please!! People after their evil intent just didn't repent enough. Angkoon was NUTS!! Best acting in the drama!
Fans of View and Toom, watch if you dare. It is definitely not the worse I've watched but it had so much potential that was truly wasted. Hate that!
STORY: Honestly, this drama's huberis was its story. The premise was unique, which was good, but very poorly executed. The storytelling was choppy to the extreme; at one point in the drama, Vill twists her ankle, and Toomtam has to carry her. Then the next morning roles around, and it's like the ankle never happened! Frankly, unless Vill has superhuman healing powers, that ankle was a deus ex machina if ever I saw one. And that was certainly not the only time something like that happened.
The villain made me laugh. He literally shouted about all his evil plans right outside the OPEN DOORS of the house. Seriously, no one EVER overheard him? Was everyone in this drama deaf?
Wathit was just downright terrible as a character. Not a single scene depicts him even feeling SAD about his brother's death, and then he goes and makes a play for his dead brother's wife, all without ANY remorse at all. Any normal human being would have a raging internal battle at the very least, feeling attracted to the dead brother's wife but wanting to honor the brother's memory. But apparently Wathit was above such petty matters. I almost wanted the villain to get the girl, because in my eyes, Wathit was more villainous than Denkhun.
The sweet scenes were well-done.
ACTING/CAST: The acting was good for the lousy material given. None of the actors could shine because the script was so bad, though. Denkhun did do a good job as the villain though, and ToomVill's comedic timing was downright hilarious, something a pleasant surprise from Vill.
MUSIC: The music was awesome. I listen to the soundtrack for this drama all the time, even though I have never rewatched the drama itself.
REWATCH VALUE: If you can stand the shoddy writing/directing/storytelling, it's a good one for rewatch. If you're like me, you'll watch it once and never watch it again.
This drama was a lot of wasted potential.
