We Malaysians, concerned or unconcerned, at this point in time are being treated to a SANDIWARA, so badly produced and directed that it is only fit to be acted out in hell as punishment to sinners. What then are our sins? Only one I dare say: putting a bunch of jokers in government.
Its like watching a drama where the actors are literally holding the scripts and reading them aloud like a year 1 boy in primary school learning how to read aloud. At the end of it all, a light pops out blinking the word 'Applause' and we are expected to clap as if it was Morgan Freeman and Samuel Jackson who had just finished their take.
Let me put this in another way. I just told Kerp this. Imagine a naked robber carrying a bazooka robbing someone at a traffic lights right in front of a CCTV. He is taken to court and the police couldn't produce any evidence and a smiling judge finds him not guilty. After judgement is delivered, we are supposed to swallow it and say 'Justice has been done'.
This is the very SANDIWARA that we have been put through in many serious cases and there is a hint that a remake is forthcoming as far as the Royal Commission of Lingamgate is concerned.
So what do we do? Go through the remake and applaud when that blinking light is activated or for once get enough numbers to boo the drama to make it known to the producer and director that it stinks and we know it?
Our problem is that we are a disunited lot. Yes, there is a lot of dissenting noise in the internet but like the drama, our dissenting voice is not coherent. Our tunes are a mixer's headache. Ghazal, keroncong, hardrock and opera all being sung at the same time. It creates more confusion and sadly no solution.
Ours, sadly, is exactly like the drama being played. On one side we have an ex director who is not happy with the present director for not keeping to the script he was forced to leave unfinished. He makes a lot of noise and his people sings along with him.
Then we have a few old directors, only given the chance to direct in school plays; who see the deficiency of the old script but could not wake the sleeping audience up because their voices drown each other; each professing that his script is better and their supporters too join in the fray going for each other's throat while the present director and his crew enjoy this sideshow.
We now have a former assistant director who was dismissed by the ex director; who knows first hand how the scripts have been manipulated; who says that he has had enough and he wants the people to see the real script, so he says. His voice too is all mixed up in the din created by all these director wannabes and their supporters.
Our problem is compounded by our own insistence that our choiced director wannabe is right. When a proposal is put forth before us we always say, 'I'll wait for what my director has to say about this'.
It is we who matters. We have the power to tell the present producers and directors that we are fed up being served remakes in new costumes. Don't we realise that we too have the rights to tell our own director wannabes to stop squabbling and to put up a united front?
The way things are going, it looks like we are going to continue being served with remakes. I fear the day when they will be so bold and not produce remakes any more. They will only serve us reruns instead.
