Based on the adaptation of real-life stories, Suatu Ketika highlights the important message of unity in Malaysia. Set in the year 1952, the film tells about the journey of a group of young village boys aspiring to win a local football match against an elite British team. It sees 12 schoolboys coming together despite their differences to play football.
The scriptwriting process for the film began in 2011. It took Suatu Ketika almost a decade (8 years to be exact!) to be made. Although the plot is fictional, the other aspects are based on people whom the director, producer and scriptwriter, Prakash Murugiah and executive producer, Prabakar Murugiah have known and interviewed over the last few years.
The 1-hour 33-minutes movie aims to inspire and promote a sense of unity among Malaysians. It shows us the simplicity of life in the 1950’s, the hopes and dreams of its people, and their joys and spirit of togetherness. Other than highlighting about the love of football, Suatu Ketika is also a tale about friendship, perseverance, courage and the undying spirit of going after your dreams.
Featuring Malaysia’s top actors like Nam Ron and Pekin Ibrahim, Suatu Ketika also stars mainly 12-year-old schoolboys as the lead roles. The film, which is a production of Kash Pictures Sdn Bhd with the support of GSC Movies, has been released at all GSC theatres nationwide on September 12.
