aka: Chaiya
Thailand 2007, 115 minutes
Dir. Kongkiat Khomsiri
In Thai with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Cult / Martial Arts


Aroview: Rough-and-tumble ONG-BAK impersonator centred on three country boys, trained in the unique ‘Chaiya’ Muay Thai discipline, who are determined to make a fist of it in big city Bangkok.

Striving for rare emotional involvement, the film nicely counter-balances the expectation of superhuman fight sequences with a strong focus on character exchanges (sans punches and kicks!). Fans of the current Thai martial arts movement will not be disappointed though, with action indicative of the country’s trailblazing template in bruising, realistic combat.
