The musical movie “หลงเสียงนาง” is now very difficult to find in Thailand. It is easier to find a Cambodian copy (VHS tape only) than the Thai original version.

The movie scenario is quite similar to "Mon Rak Luuk Thung" (มนต์รักลูกทุ่ง), i.e. a romantic musical comedy. The movie director is Rangsee Thatsanaphayak (รังสี ทัศนพยัคฆ์). He directed around 100 movies! This movie features four veteran actors (Sawin Sawangrat, Somkuan Krajangsat, Prachuap Ruekyamdee, Nirut Sirijanya as Yot) and two veteran actresses, i.e. Monrudee Yamaphai as Chalita (ชลิตา) and Thitima Sangkapitak as Chontima (ชลธิมา). The main actor is seldom seen in Thai movies, i.e. Chokchai ChokAnan (โชคชัย โชคอนันต์) as he played in two movies only. Chokchai ChokAnan is a Thai country music singer, who became famous thanks to the song “หลงเสียงนาง”. This song was even adapted in Khmer language (ลา..ลา..ลา.....). Chokchai ChokAnan is half Thai and half Indian. He is playing character Nat. A car from Bangkok is arriving with two young ladies in the village. Yot and Nat, two close friends, tease the two Bangkokian ladies with their motorbike. Finally the two couples tease each other. The Bangkok ladies wish to discover rural life and try to drive a tractor. Nat tries to seduce Chalita through love songs but she is reluctanct. Finally love emerges but the father forbids the young ladies to see the boys. They have to use tricks to see each other. Chalita is finally fianced by her father to an older Chinese Bangkokian businessman. Nat is upset but Chalita was forced. Nat sends a little boy to sing a song telling his disappointment. Chalita has to talk to him through songs (รักคุณคนเดียว). Finally the Bangkokian businessman cannot be trust as he steals money from Chalita's father. Thanks to Nat and Yot, through a final gunfight battle, the businessman and his ruffians are defeated. The father now recognizes the young men’s value and accept their love with his daughters.

Sarapat takes over the island while his father is away. When the father is back, he is captured. While Sarapat and his men celebrate their victory, the island volcano wakes up. Ai Klang and a number of men faithful to the father attack the renegade pirates. Fight is fierce but they win. Salai is killed during the fightings. Ai Klang ends up fighting with his father as he killed his real parents twenty years ago. He is unable to kill him as twenty years together have created strong filial bonds.

Yuak (Dokdin Kanyaman) is involved in a shooting with police. He is part of a drug gang selling cannabis (กัญชา) hidden in garlands sold by kids. Yuak is finally arrested and spends 6 years in jail. His release happens just during Songkran period. His relative has taken care of his now grown-up niece, Klong (Mayura Thanabutr) (เด็กสลัม). Local policeman warns Yuak (หม้าว้ด) to beware of any misconduct if he doesn't want to go to jail again. Klong's mother Kae Son has left and stopped sending money to her. The mother went to live with a ruffian called Rot (Choomporn Theppitak). He is a violent man stealing Klong's school fee. Rot is now involved in cannabis traffic also and has a new wife. While Yuak, Klong and Songthai (Suriya Chinaphan) are playing music, police arrests some drug traffickers nearby. Afraid of police, Yuak flees in front of inspector Pheung's (Sombat Methanee) despite being innocent. They are arrested and then released but Pheung gets scolded by Klong. Prachuap (Prachuap Ruekyamdee) is a doctor fighting drug usage. He is the father of one of Klong's best friend, Phanit. Pheung is Phanit's brother. Pheung's girlfriend, Chat, dislikes immediately Klong as she is having a famous family name (สกุล) which is improbable as being a poor girl from slum (สลัม). Klong and Yai have issues with Rot and it ends up at the police station but Rot flees before as he is involved in narcotics. Yai is severely sick. Klong has no money to cure her so one of her friends in the slum sacrifices herself with men to find the money. Following an advice from Yuak, it is discovered that Chaiyut (Lak Apichat), Chat’s secret lover, is involved in drug trafficking with Rot. Following gunfight with Pheung, Rot is shot. Chatchai, Phanit's boyfriend, is also involved in the traffic. Songthai helps Phanit to flee from Chatchai. Phanit and her friends are addicted so a detoxification is needed with special herbs tea by Yuak. Prachuap hits Songthai believing he mistreated his daughter. It is a weird situation as despite having a father fighting against drug usage, a policeman brother fighting against traffickers, Phanit is still a drug addict. Prachuap finds that Klong is the lost granddaughter (หลาน) of a rich heiress. Romance starts between Klong and Pheung. The old lady caused Klong's parents to split up as she couldn't accept a poor maiden for her son. So knowing this, Klong leaves her being very angry. Pheung understands Klong’s kindness versus Chat’s selfishness. Meanwhile Chat organises the kidnapping of the old lady. Klong and Pheung help on different side to neutralize Chaiyut and his team. The old lady is freed. Ruffians are shot by Pheung. Happiness can resume in the family. Dokdin's movie แม่ดอกกัญชา is a high criticism of usage of cannabis in Thai society, either in poor neighborhood or either high society. Cannabis sinners are shown on a torn tree (Buddhist symbolism). Dokdin’s movie highlights drug traffic, prostitution and drug taking in slums. As usual, Dokdin movie mixes comedy, romance and action.

Ruffians attack a bus and put fire into it. Hopefully military can help on time but some passengers die. Who was behind the ruffians? A local villager Chat is having financial difficulties. Nemana and Data, owners of the local sawmills, lend money to poor people with high interest. Chat bought a truck. He is close friend with Tai (Sombat Methanee), who is a village scout (ลูกเสือชาวบ้าน). The Village scouts was a right-wing group sponsored by the King and Queen of Thailand to promote national unity in 1970s. Villagers are helping each other. Due to debts (หนี้) Chat needs to give his rice fresh crop to Nemana. Poor (จน) people just work for the rich! Nemana gives him back the truck against his wife’s rice fields guarantee and allows him to cut trees in forest. He befriends with Prachan, who is Nemana’s close associate. Despite Nemana's promise, some other ruffians try to catch Chat so he has to fight back for his life. As he shots two men, he has to flee to Bangkok. They lie to him as the ruffians are not dead. He is driving a taxi in Bangkok. He gets framed by Prachan who puts drugs in his car (เล่นละคร) in order to increase Chat’s dependence to him as Chat needs to pay back his gratitude. He accepts to join their team. Nuan and Tai marry. Chat, due to easy money and lust, forgets his pregnant wife Bua (กรุงเทพสวรรค์คนมี นรกคนจน, คนลืมตัว). Back to the village Chat complains about the corruption of officials and how to benefit from it! Tai wishes to fight against this corruption that is bad for the country, fight against the bad parliament members. Tai and Chat disagree so fight (คนโทรยศแผ่นดิน). Nemana and Tai have a disagreement regarding rice selling. Tai pushes his democratic concept as villagers can sell to anybody (สหาย). It is democracy versus communism. Nemana proposes to share power and influence (แบ่งอำนาจ). As Tai refuses, they kidnap Nuan, his wife, who is teacher in order to force Tai to join them. Tai refuses their ultimatum and decides to act at nighttime. Faced to a Buddha statue, Tai prays in front of the Thai King and Queen pictures. Thai Buddhism, the monarchy and the nation were high symbols against Communism in 1970s. Patriotic songs are played in the background (รักชาติ). Tai has to use a floating wing similar to a hang-glider to enter silently their camp. He succeeds to release Nuan but they are captured while trying to escape from the camp. Chat's mother dies on a mine while trying to convince her son (คนขายชาติ) to release Tai. Through his treachery he loses his mother (สร้างกรรม). He changes side so frees Tai and Nuan. Chat dies while holding the Thai flag. Tai takes over the Thai flag. Meanwhile villagers holding Thai flags and singing patriotic songs go towards the camp. Thai army is joining them. The ruffians are defeated and some of them injured or killed. Through high compassion, soldiers give help and priority to treat them. Tai successfully removes the red (communist) flag and replaces it by the Thai flag generating cheers and dances. The song “Nak Phaendin” was released in 1975. It is was a patriotic song (เพลงปลุกใจ) against the communist influence (คอมมิวนิสต์). During 1975-1980 years, Thailand was surrounded by Communist countries (Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam) and was at high risk to fall also. This movie from an historical point of view shows nicely this trouble period and how the government propaganda was done.

Prakan (Sombat Methanee) and Wi Ok Hen Lom (Chaiya Suriyun) are Pa Wieng's sons. Pa Wieng is the head of a team of bandits (โจร). Once Prakan knows Pa Wieng is not his real father, he flees to find his real father, Sing. A couple, Karn and his girlfriend Duang, is fleeing as Pa Wieng's ruffians are following them up. Karn dies but Duang is saved by Prakan (Sombat Methanee). Pa Wieng is Prakan's stepfather (พ่อเลี้ยง). Prakan is now considered as a traitor (ลูกหมา, ทรยศ) as he tried to flee. Wi Ok Hen Lom is always following Prakan remotely and helps him when needed. Prakan and Duang arrive in the adjacent district. Luang (Dam Datsakorn) is the subdistrict headman (กำนัน) and her sister Deuan (Aranya Namwong) is the village headman. They control very strictly the subdistrict. Sing was the former village headman but his authority has been neutralized. Prakan wants to find the former village headman (ผู้ใหญ่บ้าน) Sing, who is his real father. But Sing refuses to recognize him as his son. Prakan and Duang (เพื่อนรัก) are captured by Deuan (คนเก่ง). Sing's daughter, Kotko, supports them. Prakan helps to protect their oil stock and gets back his freedom. Finally Sing recognises Prakan (ลูกพ่อ). Luang believes Prakan is a undercover policeman (ตำรวจชายแดน). Saming is another mafia leader and is Luang's best friend. Saming and Luang destroy Prakan's house but Deuan doesn't agree (ไม่เห็นด้วย, ไม่ยุติธรรม). It is war declaration with Prakan. Prakan uses rape as weapon to revenge himself against Deuan. Luang asks the district officer (นายอำเภอ) to arrest them but Deuan provides an alibi to Prakan. Luang decides to give Deuan to Saming but Prakan rescues her on time (มารับเมีย). Now Prakan has two wives (มีเมีย2คน), Deuan and Duang! Kotko and Duang are kidnapped. Pa Wieng comes to help but dies in the fight against Luang and Saming. As expected, ruffians are defeated. It is a typical action movie from 1970s decade when local authorities were not respecting the law and were local kingpins. It is also a very bad habit in Thai movies and Thai TV series (ละคร) to use rape as an expression of love. In 2006, a Thai movie with the same name was released but it was a comedy.

Hin is the leader of the pirates (โจร) who attack the village. Many villagers are captured or killed. Four children, two boys (Phet, Chiang Ho) and two girls (Kae, Lilin), promise to revenge their parents and punish Hin. The kids get separated. Fifteen years have passed. Seua and Kae love each other but their love is endangered as it is discovered Seua is Koeb's son. Koeb has cut Kae's mother arm during the village attack fifteen years ago. Their love becomes impossible. Back home Kae finds her mother dead. Chiang Ho and Lilin are back from China and ready for revenge. They meet Kae and look for Phet, the last friend. Phet has been raised by Hin and is called Praew. Hin, following the fall of Ayutthaya, has become lord of the province. The three friends attack directly Hin's fort but are defeated as Phet supports Hin, the pirate leader, and is now a traitor (ทรยศ). The two girls are captured as Seua also betrays Kae. Seua is the one who killed Kae's mother. Phet had to lie and simulates as he is an Ayuthaya soldier (งานของแผ่นดิน). He loves the king and the kingdom. Hin is making an alliance with Burma to sell canons (โจรขายชาติ). Phet's double game is disclosed. He is captured by Hin and his fingers are broken to prevent any fighting. Hopefully Chiang Ho can help and they flee from the fort. Lin takes care (รักษาพยาบาล) of Phet. They ask support from their old teacher but he refuses to believe that Hin is a traitor. Finally faced to the truth he decides to help. Surpassing the pain, Phet fights for the kingdom (ช่วยแผ่นดิน). Elephants are used to defeat Hin’s soldiers. Despite being outnumbered, the fierce Siamese soldiers succeed to defeat the traitors and Burmese soldiers in order to save the King. Many sword fights and kung fu / Thai boxing fights typical from 1970s Hong Kong movies are featured. The King’s face cannot be seen but Thai royal music is played to indicate his presence. This movie is really typical from years 1970s when patriotic movies were shot due to the communist threats at the Thai borders. The movie features two Hong Kong movies stars. It takes two years to shoot the complete movie. It was an expensive movie to make as real soldiers were used, a fort has to be built along a mountain and then destroyed by explosives.

This Thai spy movie starts very similary to “Impossible Mission” TV serie with tapes giving instructions. Jiep (Adul Dulyarat), expert in explosives, finds Saen (Surasit Sattayawong) in Ayuthaya. They need to find Nin (Mitr Chaibancha) in Bangkok, handsome guy and always butterflying with ladies. They have to do a secret mission related to Thailand and to complete within one month. Target is to neutralise a dangerous secret organisation (เวียดนามเหนือ). They need to find a fourth teammate (number 46) in Udon Thani. Guerrilla group soldiers (ทหารป้า) are terrorising villagers by burning their houses and even killing them. Kaneung Ha (Sopha Sataporn) is the group leader. Saree (Metta Roongrat) has been forcefully enrolled. When her parents are killed, she finally deserts. The three men finds Saree burying her parents. She accepts to join them in order to show where the guerilla is hiding. They spend one night in a villager house. This one informs the guerilla of the group presence. They flee on time but Saen doesn't trust Saree anymore and tries to kill her (ทรยศ). Kaneung Ha recruits strong men in villages by luring them with beautiful ladies (Kaenjai Meenakanit). Nin and his two friends succeed to be recruited. Kaneung Ha believes the three men are spies from government (ศัตรู) so they get tortured. Finally Kaneung Ha has pity on them. Meanwhile police is sending officers disguised in clowns (Prachuap Ruekyamdee). Saree offers her help too (ร่วมมือ). The three men receive orders to kill the three policemen and Saree in order to prove their obedience to the organisation. Two guards shall oversee the mission. The three men capture the three policemen following a tacit agreement. Following their first mission success, the big boss sends them to Udon to make airport details recording. Yot is jealous of Nin as he knows Kaneung Ha starts to love him. The big boss is trusting now the three men and shows them the missiles stored in the base. Nin declares his love to Kaneung Ha. Saree helps the three policemen to flee. Nin defeats Yot in one to one fight. Police is back with many men. Meanwhile Jiep tries to neutralize the missiles. Nin brings Kaneung Ha with him before the explosion. Police faces strong opposition before reaching the base. Kaneung Ha is the real number 46 they were looking for. She helps Nin to fight the traitors. Finally the missiles are destroyed and the ruffians are all captured. The movie has still colorful and good quality image. It is a 2h27mn movie and the VCD is almost full. In those 1960s movies, no direct kisses are shown. Mitr kisses Sopha but still prudery happens. Like many 1960s action movies, ทรชนเดนตาย film (1969) has a nationalist trend.

During World War 2, a man betrays his country (ขายชาติ) and even kills his wife Narinee as she refuses to keep silent. The father then disappears. His own daughter flees and is rescued by a young man called Boripat, who put her in a well off family. She is renamed Lamphap. A few years have passed. Lamphap (Suthisa Putnuch) is a beautiful grown up lady. Boripat plans to become deputy (ผู้แทน) in Phatalung province. Boripat and Lamphap love each other. Cheutchalao (Kaenjai Meenakanit), a jealous lady who wishes to marry Boripat, shows to Boripat’s mother a picture of Lamphap’s mother. Is it good that Boripat as a future deputy marry a country traitor? Following a night with Boripat, Lamphap flees away as she is ashamed of her background. Boripat looks for her. When he is aware of her parents’ background, he breaks up with her and finally marries Cheutchalao. Lamphap is followed by her father's bad reputation. Boripat has become a member of parliament. Cheutchalao introduces Khun Yousapong (Prachuap Ruekyamdee), who is a salesman, to Boripat. Boripat needs to pay back the funding he receives from him through some sales advantages with government projects. Boripat rejects and resigns as he refuses to betray his own principles. Cheutchalao is very upset as Yousapong is in fact her hidden lover. She even refuses to keep the child she is currently having with Boripat! Cheutchalao has an argument with Boripat’s mother causing her to fall from the stairs and dies. Boripat then indulged in alcohol and, being sick, decides to die in the place he met Lamphap the first time. He dies in her arms. Kenang is the child born of their brief union. Many years have passed. A young lady called Pen (Pawana Chanajit) stops by the village due to a flat tyre and is helped by Kenang (คนป้า). Pen is daughter of the salesman Yousapong. Salesman is still with stepmother (แม่เลี้ยง) Cheutchalao. Yousapong has always been concerned about money only (ไม่รู้ค่าความรัก). Pen dances on a show and displays her great dancing performing skills (รำไทย) to pay back his father as studies compensation. She gets a reward and wishes to offer it to Lamphap but Cheutchalao prevents her to do it as Lamphap is daughter of a country traitor (เป็นกรรม). Chatkalin, Lamphap’s second son (Choomporn Theppitak) doesn't want anybody to mention he is Lamhap's son anymore as he wished to marry Pen. He is in fact Boripat and Cheutchalao's son. Cheutchalao left the child in an orphanage and Lamphap, having pity, raised him. Well off people (ผู้ดี), having status, are seeing down poor people. As a revenge Kenang kidnaps Pen and brings her to a remote place near seaside. Chatkalin burns Lamphap's house as retaliation. Kenang, having finally freed Pen, arrives on time to save his mother. Following a fight with Chatkalin, a passer-by is shot. They all accuse Kenang. Lamphap chases everybody. A policeman offers her an opportunity to clean her name but she has to give information regarding the secret place where her traitor father and his team are hiding. After reaching the place in the mountain, Lamphap’s father wished to test her if she is not a spy. She shall kill her own son, Kenang, as he has been accused by Cheutchalao, Chatkalin and Yousapong of having killed the father’s own son, i.e. the passer-by. Only Pen defends Kenang. Lamphap has to do a sacrifice (เสียสละ), i.e. Kenang’s life against the four other lives (Cheutchalao, Chatkalin, Yousapong, Pen). Finally one of the ruffians revolts for the sake of his country preventing Lamphap to make an impossible choice. Bad characters are punished. Some episodes were cut in this Lepso VCD release, i.e. one episode where Sombat Methanee is singing and another climax episode when the ruffian forces the mother (Suthisa Putnuch) to shoot her own son (Sombat Methanee) but finally changes his mind. Sombat Methanee plays both the father Boripat and the son Kenang. This 1960s movie shows that faithfulness to country is more important that faithfulness to own family. It is typical of many 1960-1970s movies, which featured nationalist elements against the red communist threat. พญาโศก is a less known good movie from famous director Cherd Songsri. It also includes many references to the Thai royalty.

ปูจ๋า or Pu Ja is a 1967 Thai movie directed by Dokdin Kanyaman. 47 minutes only are left. Normally Thai 16mm movies from decade 1960s used to be made of 4 to 5 reels. One reel lasts around 40 minutes. There is no sound available for this movie as 16mm movies are always dubbed. So understanding the whole movie is quite difficult. Petchara Chaowarat (ปู) is a young lady. Her close friends are Dokdin Kanyaman and Orasa Isarangkul. Sawin Sawangrat, Petchara’s father, is a fisherman. Petchara and Dokdin are caught in a military exercise including a beach landing. They meet Mitr Chaibancha, who is an officer. Petchara and Mitr appreciate each other. Mitr rescues a young lady who is about to be drowned. Later on Mitr and his friend Adul mingle (จู๋จี๋) with those two ladies (Chadaporn Wachirapranee and another veteran actress). Petchara, aware of this, is disappointed by Mitr. Petchara’s blind grandmother is played by veteran actress Malee Wetpraseri. It is Petchara’s birthday. Adul changes the content of a gift offered by Mitr. It is a trick to spoil love between Mitr and Petchara as it starts to emerge. He then offers a proper gift to Petchara. Sawin prevents both of them to fight and asks Petchara to go back home. It seems that Chadaporn is unhappy with Sawin and asks him to push Petchara away from Mitr. Following a fishing trip, Sawin falls in the sea during a storm. Petchara and Dokdin need to find a job and then work as coolie in a construction site. Police officer Adul looks for them as it is found that Petchara is a descendant of a rich family. Sawin isn't dead. it seems he will cause issue to Petchara but love with Mitr will of course succeed. In this 1967 period, Petchara Chaowarat had short haircut. As usual with Dokdin Kanyaman’s movies, there is humour, action, romance and good feelings (happy ending).

She gives her a letter. What is inside the letter? Certainly a letter in which Petchara shall reject her rights to the heritage. Later on, Adul wants Petchara to sign a letter but she refuses so he slaps her. Adul threatens her mother to force Petchara to sign the letter. Meanwhile Mitr and Ruekyamdee enter secretly in the house where Petchara is held prisoner in order to help her. Shootings happen with ruffians but Thai police arrive on time to catch Adul.

โรงแรมนรก
โรงแรมนรก

Year: 1957

Thai title: โรงแรมนรก
English title: Country Hotel

Rating: 5/5
Director: Ratana Pestonji

Main actor: Prachuap Ruekyamdee,Chana Sriubon,Sompong Phonmitr,Tat Ekathat
Main actress: Sarinthip Siriwan

The hotel bar caretaker Noi is a brave guy (Prachuap Ruekyamdee) but he is a bit gullible and too nice to customers. The hotel is used as rehearsal hall by choral or a Philippine artist such as miss Flora or Chinese opera (งิ้ว) or even a boxing match. The hotel is often used for arm wrestling competition. The caretaker Noi can often beat men much stronger than him. This strange hotel has only one room and it is already occupied by Mr Chana (Chana Sriubon). Issue arises when a young lady called Riem (Sarinthip Siriwan) asks for a room also. Chana renames the hotel Paradise as hotel Hell (โรงแรมนรก) as it is too noisy. Chana and Riem keep arguing for the room and even fight for pillows (ใจดำ). Chana is getting mad as he cannot sleep properly. Rumors about bandit Seua Din reach the hotel. Taking a bath in a nearby river, Riem needs to borrow Chana's gun to protect herself in case Seua Din is around. As Chana refuses, she bets with him and wins a shooting game. Three ruffians including a fierce guy called Krai are looking for Chana as he is an accountant. They wish to rob his money before he pays company salaries. Noi's uncle is shot. Riem is back when they start to beat Noi and Chana to know when the money arrives. The ruffians are quite polite (เสือสุภาพบุรุษ) but determined to get the money. Noi tells that Riem is Chana's wife. To make Chana speaks, the ruffians threaten his wife’s integrity. Chana finally accepts to tell that money will arrive at 4am. Love emerges between Riem and Chana. One of the ruffians helps Noi as he was looking for honest job and not a thief job. Krai shoots his two friends at nighttime as he believes they betrayed him by protecting Chana. Seua Din enters in the hotel and wishes to get the money also with no sharing. So a Russian roulette game is organised between Krai and Seua Din. Seua Din is very polite (เสือสุภาพบุรุษ) also but not Krai who breaks the game rules and shoots him. Chana and Noi capture Krai. The agent sending the money was Riem, daughter of the company owner. Chana and Riem cannot marry as Chana believes he is a small accountant only. Riem succeeds to convince him. There is a great performance of Prachuap Ruekyamdee who is playing a major role here instead of being a second role in a movie with leading actor Mitr Chaibancha. The movie scenario is very witty. Country Hotel (โรงแรมนรก) is a 1957 black and white movie lasting 2h19mn. It was filmed in 35mm format (using real actors voice) at the opposite of mainstream Thai movies using 16mm format (using dubbers). The movie received 3 awards in 1959 (best director, best image, best sound). The bar can still be found at Thai Film Archives museum. Western classical music is used. There is a great soundtrack used to create special ambience when fighting is happening. It is an indoor movie shooting.
