Dear Dakanda...

The film takes us to two different timelines of the main character Khaiyoi, and tells the story of a shy young boy with a nonchalant attitude. The story brings us on a journey of people finding their love, and mustering up the courage to tell that person how they truly feel.

Although the story/plot was decent, I'll have to admit that Sunny's acting in his movie debut was not entirely convincing. I felt that you could've replaced him with anyone and the emotions the film brought would've been the same. Dakanda, Nui, and the other nurse's acting really carried the movie here.

I know there will be people that won't like this film, or find it boring. Somehow (ignoring the ML's acting), I found this film to be quite interesting and relatable. Most of us will probably have had this one friend for whom we've been gathering the courage to tell them our feelings, but it usually ends up being too late or never. The feelings of moving on and moving towards the next chapter of your life is often difficult, but necessary. On a personal level, that's what this film reflects upon me. Because of this, I recommend this film.
