THAI ROMANCE MOVIES

Some Thai romance movies deal about revenge. Some Thai movies deal about mistress or minor wife ("MIA NOI" - เมียน้อย). Often the main wife ("MIA KLANG" - เมียกลาง) get rid of the minor wife by killing her and force her to suicide. Then a family member of the minor wife will take a revenge against the main wife. Powerful and rich Thai men sometimes have a second but unofficial wife. The man supports everything for her, supports her children but in front of the society she is not recognised. Powerful and influential men don't divorce but can have unofficially several minor wives. As long as he takes care of all of his wives it is tolerated. Of course this is the Thai male point of view.

The rich family siblings doesn't want her to receive anything. Anucha Rattanamarn is fiance with Kaenjai Meenakanit. They prepare a plan to disinherit Petchara. Mitr Chaibancha, the grandson, is offering flowers to the grandfather. There is a carnival in the village. Adul Dulyarat, a mysterious rich man, meets with Petchara. Petchara and Kaenchai meet also. 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. There is an important meeting to open heritage documents at the same time. Petchara arrives on time before the final signature! The grandfather was kept in the dark regarding Petchara by his own family but they all got arrested by police for forgery. Many movies names with Mitr and Petchara started with นก (bird) such as นกยูง (1969), นกแก้ว (1969), นกขมิ้น (1965) or นกน้อย (1964).

แม่ย่านาง is a 1970 movie in VCD format featuring a still colorful picture and lasting 1h54mn. An additional 30mn reel (the reel number 2) is available through a Thai collector. Young lady Prang (Sopha Sataporn) is waiting for Jiaw (เด็กวัด) to give alms (ตักบาตร) to the monks but he doesn't come today. Jiaw (Mitr Chaibancha) is a temple boy with a kind heart (ใจบุญ) so seeing Jom and his friends trying to steal money donated to the temple, he tries to prevent them to rob money to buy alcohol. Unfortunately he gets accused by Jom so the abbot believes he is the robber. Jiaw is chased from the temple. He decides to sell food (ขายของ) with his two friends by navigating on a boat on river and canals. A mysterious spirit Mae Ya Nang (ผีหลอก) (Pissamai Wilaisak) on the boat bow helps them to get business. Jae (Kaenjai Meenakanit), a shop vendor, likes Jiaw a lot but he is not interested. Sithao Petcharoen has issues with his wife as she doesn’t accept he has mistresses. Prang is seen as a young sister (น้องสาว) only by Jiaw. Jiaw seems to love his boat more than anything else despite strong interest from Jae and Prang. Jae is under a charm (ถูกเสน่ห์). A local villager has recruited a black magician (Lor Tok)(หมอผี) to make a love philter to seduce Jae. As uncle Man (พฤหัส บุญหลง - Preuhat Boonlong) breaks the spell, the black magician tries to kill uncle Man. As it fails, he sends Jom and his team protected by magic tattoos. Once again the spirit Mae Ya Nang (แม่ย่านางเรือ) protects Jiaw. In a previous life, the mysterious lady and Jiaw knew each other. The mysterious lady was a princess (ลูกหญิง). As the King's boat (พระองค์) was attacked by pirates, the King ordered Jiaw to take away the princess and to protect her. Jom, who was the head of soldiers, was treacherous to his King and killed him. Sor Asanajinda is the father of Jom. Before dying, Jiaw's friend succeeded to reach him and told the truth about Jom. Spade fighting happened between Jom and Jiaw. Jiaw won and Jom died (ทรยศ). The princess didn't trust the uncle Sor and asked Jiaw to organise their escape. Jiaw was split between his love to the princess and the love to the kingdom. The uncle Sor asked him to leave to preserve the princess. As he finally refused, he was killed by a guard. Knowing his death, the princess got suicide. Back to the present, the black magician sends Jom to kill Jiaw and the uncle Man. Prang and Jae are kidnapped by the black magician (อาจารย์). Jiaw shall avoid any bad actions (จ้องเวร จ้องกรรม) to hope being reunited with the princess one day. Jom kills the black magician as he made a love philter for himself to seduce Jae and Prang instead of doing it for Jom. Through a final fight with Jom, Jiaw is killed while protecting the abbot (in fact the king in a previous life) with his own body. Jiaw failed to protect the King in his previous life but in this life, he saves the monk. Jiaw and the princess are reunited in heaven. The 1h54mn movie is really great but the additional 30mn reel reveals additional details of the movie: Jae is upset that Jiaw prefers to sleep on the boat than with her. Jiaw helps to prevent a kidnapping of Jae. Sithao suggests Jom to visit the black magician to get spells. He is a bad guy always trying to abuse for his own purpose people asking for love philter. Through a sexy scene with an unknown veteran actress, the black magician makes a love philtre to seduce her instead of doing one for her to seduce back her husband Sithao. It is highly probable that this scene would have been cut on any VCD release. Seeing the power of love filters, they recommend the black magician to the villager trying to seduce Jae. As old movies were long, each actor / actress always had the opportunity to have his own long scene to please his fans. It is also very frequent to see Thai people onlookers in outdoor scenes such as market. It was additional potential customers to come watching in cinema to see if they were in the movie! The original movie features 5 songs but the DVD only features 1 song.

Lady Nok Yung made a wedding promise to a noble soldier called Wai Wongsa. Nowadays, on the way to Ayuthaya, a young man, called Pranai, just avoids bumping in a young lady crossing the road. She smiles and disappears in a tree. Is she a ghost or a tree spirit (นางไม้)? Pranai has same face as noble soldier Wai Wongsa. Pranai is the owner of a Siam antiques shop. Today it is Pranai's birthday. He is still single. His sister tries to marry him but to no avail. His sister tries to push young lady Fai. Pranai still wants to meet the mysterious girl. He stays near the tree. Nok Yung needs food for 20 people for one month. Pranai agrees to give but wants to know and understand. Nok Yung agrees to visit Ayuthaya area. She realizes that Sri Ayuthaya was burnt down. Nok Yung asks Pranai not to visit her again. Pranai learns meditation to see his past. Pranai's sister and Fai believes he is possessed by a ghost (ถูกผีเข้า). They use a sorcerer (หมอผี) to cure Pranai and chase the ghost. Meanwhile Arawee, a local young actor, lies to Yipoo, another lady staying in the house of the Peakcock, in order to seduce her by pretending he is an Ayuthaya soldier. He succeeds to enter in the house and so the spell protecting the house is broken. Inhabitants have to flee. The sorcerer and acolytes fight over the gold. Fai's father, called Fa Feun, prevents the robbing. Pranai helps Nok Yung and invites her in his home. Fa Feun loves Nok Yung and gives money to Pranai in order that he breaks up with Nok Yung. Pranai refuses and is looking for a way to send back Nok Yung into the past. Arawee is Waiwongsa's current reincarnation. Believing into karma (กรรม) and in order not to break her promise done 221 years ago, Nok Yung accepts to marry Arawee. Pranai is in despair. Finally Fa Feun convinces Arawee not to marry as Arawee is more interested in his acting career. Pranai is not willing to marry Nok Yung anymore as he believes she is too nice to live in 20th century. The house goes back to the past but Nok Yung finally stays happily with Pranai. This movie questions the old-fashioned morals that are being lost in modern Thailand. Some traditions are getting lost (smile, not speak loudly, no lies). Bangkok development threatens the country-side. We need to take care more of our heritage. The trailer is the TV serie shot in 2540.
