Tai Lo keeps his nefarious scheme small, blackmailing selected wealthy passengers that they pick up at the airport. When he brings ex-convict Ah Soon – his late policeman-father’s former accomplice – into the game, it upsets the hot-headed Sai Lo who has been dreaming of bigger schemes for bigger profits. The ambitious Sai Lo then teams up with another of their gang member, Gwai Lo, to carry out an extortion of their own, all without Tai Lo’s knowledge.

Hantu Kak Limah, now streaming

Hantu Kak Limah is a Malaysian horror comedy film directed by Mamat Khalid. Chock-full of slapstick humour, clever wordplay, and pesky ghosts, it is no surprise that this threequel made box office history in Malaysia.

It also allows local films to achieve greater heights.
