TV Review: Siti Kelembai <i>Legenda</i> @ TV3

1 Title: Siti Kelembai (20 Eps)
Series: Lagenda
Starring: Liyana Shamsudin, Fizo Omar, Amran Omar, Farah Lyana, Jasmin Hamid, Eizlan Yusof
Production: MIG Productions
Air on: TV3 (4.30pm) & TV9 (8:30pm)
Country: Malaysia

A modernized adaptation from the legend of Dewa Kelembai (Deity), so far this series is looking catchy, teen clique, humorous,  and mm.. there’s one thing I can’t put my finger on. It’s about a girl name Siti Ratna, who happens to be the grand daughter of Dewa Kelembai. Her mother however is goign through a curse and Siti Ratna has no idea she still exists.

Siti Ratna is a what the west would call a demi-goddess, her mother was a full deity and her father is just a human being. Regardless inheriting her mother beautiful looks, she grew up with a messy complexion, perhaps because she  doesn’t have a female parental figure in her life. In school, Siti Ratna earns the title, “Queen Day Dreamer”, because she tends to space out and day dream way too many times, it has become a habit. As it turns out, she has come to the age where her powers has surface, and she is having trouble controlling it, since she keeps cursing people who pisses her accidentally. Now she’s learning to control her powers with help from another elderly deity.

My Thoughts: This series is silly and funny. It’s like watching an Ugly Duckling + Cinderella all roll into one. Honestly the only ones I recognize in this series are Jasmin Hamid and Eizlan Yusof. the rest are completely new to me. The storyline is ok, plots are good, enough for me to rush home from work to watch it. (we don’t have NTV7, TV9, 8tv in astro anymore in Brunei, so, I can only catch it on TV3) As a lover of this genre, I say, it’s a nice job. I get emo watching Trisya (classmate) because she being such a brat!
