Some bars or clubs only accepted foreign music (ห้ามเล่นเพลงไทย) as Thai music was a rebellion symbol. One of the member of famous group called President, Lek, quit his band to join Carabao as he hated commercial funk music. They were looking for additional members for their group Carabao. Thanks to Lek negotiating with the President band’s producer, they got their new tape released and a tour was organized. But they also needed to play in the orchestra of a Luk Thung star. A romance was starting with the singer but it didn't succeed due to the remembrance of an old love story of Ed that ended tragically. Commercial success finally happened. Ed liked big groups.

Thai movie P-047 / แต่เพียงผู้เดียว, directed by Kongdej Jaturanrasamee, was released in year 2011. Two men with gloves are entering homes but do not steal anything. They are also involving themselves in life of people by checking their personal items. One of them is a locksmith (ช่างกุญแจ) called Lek and the other is called Kong, newspapers stand owner. Nook's previous girlfriend was called Nook; Lek seems to never have a girlfriend. One day in a big flat, the owner comes back earlier than expected. Following a break up situation, he wishes to get suicide. This is due to wrong messages sent by Kong by using the owner's computer. Hearing Lek and his friend, a fighting happens in which Lek is injured. The flat owner, a gay man, dies through unfortunate shooting and Lek disguises this as a suicide. Due to his injury, Lek ends up at hospital. He meets Oi, a half crazy lady, who likes to smell old boxes to remind her of the past. One morning, they find a peacock on the roof. Oi tells an old Thai story about the peacock. The movie is going back and forth. Lek falls from a cliff. There is some analogy between past life and current life of Lek. The old Thai movie เสน่ห์บางกอก (1966) is even shown as a testimony to the past. Lek finally meets a lady with whom he feels strong connection. This beautifully shot movie questions how much of other people's lives we can really borrow. Similar to Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s movies, the story is not always easy to follow but the slow pace and the beautiful image make it worth seeing.

After the fall of Bang Rajan, a group of Thai warriors is left and settle a remote hidden village. With the help of a charismatic Buddhist abbot (หลวงพ่อ), they decide to fight back. Burmese army is looking for them. It results in embuscades. Bloody sequences with CGI similar to US movie “300”, head cuts, blood splitting on the screen are featured. This is a nationalist trend movie as Thai people cannot let Burmese army occupies their land (แผ่นดินของเรา). They all think about their life when the war will be over. Currently food is not enough in the village (ชุม) as many people take refuge there (คนเยอะ). Chatchai Plengpanich is playing a soldier (ทหาร), i.e. Phaya. His group is overwhelmed by Burmese soldiers in the forest but he gets help from the former Bang Rajan soldiers. Ayutthaya capital (กรุงศรีอยุธยา) is burning in the background. Tensions happen between soldiers and villagers (ชาวบ้าน). Burmese use some villagers through coercion to try to kill the Buddhist abbot (บารมีหลวงพ่อ). As they fail, all their relatives are killed by Burmese. Phaya asks for a revolt to end the everyday deaths. They have to choose between hide or fight. Two profiles of collaborators with Burmese are shown, a woman (being a courtesan with the Burmese leader in order to get food for her captive mother) and a slave (being passive in front of Burmese soldiers in order to save his life). The Burmese soldiers steal a huge Buddha statue from Ayutthaya to bring it back home. Thai warriors defeat the Burmese soldiers and succeed to save the Buddha statue (so huge that CGI effects have to be used). The courtesan and the slave being deceived by the Burmese change side. The spirits of Bang Rajan fighters (veteran actors from Bang Rajan movie part 1 : Vinai Kraibutr, Choomporn Theppitak, Bin Banleurit) give to the fighters additional strength. A bigger army comes. The abbot accepts to surrender to spare the villagers lives. The monk announces to the Burmese general that they will never win as long as there are warriors like Bang Rajan villagers in Thailand. The abbot is sentenced to death. The Thai warriors seem to face a too big army to be able to win. But Bang Rajan spirit is on forever. Former Thai tennis star Paradorn Srichaphan played in this movie. The movie lasts 2h02mn.

As usual, Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s movies are not easy to understand. “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives” is no exception. On top of this, most of this movie is narrated in Lao language so it makes it more difficult to understand. A family, aunt Jane and her son Tom, arrive from Bangkok into a Isan village. The car is passing by Isan villages through long sequences without any dialogs. They are visiting Uncle Boonmee. The uncle is seriously sick and needs to receive caring and medication. At evening time during a diner, a spirit is visiting them. It is Uncle Boonmee’s former wife. She is happy to receive good deeds from donations made to Buddhist temple. Then another spirit comes also. It is a half man half monkey with red eyes (ผีลิง). It is Uncle Boonmee’s son. His son, photographer, had been trying to shoot a weird spirit in the forest since a long time. They are looking at old pictures together. Many following sequences in the movie are about Uncle Boonmee recalling his previous incarnations. It is a film about recollection and death, about death and rebirth. Many sequences are beautifully shot especially night photography scenes but the sequences meaning is not easy to understand. Various sequences include 1) a buffalo is tied to a tree. He succeeds to break the rope and flees away. His owner is looking for it and finally finds it 2) weird spirit with red eyes seen in the jungle 3) A mysterious old woman is carried in a palanquin by a whole troupe. She is then talking to the waterfalls spirit. There is a love sequence with a fish. There are many spirit beliefs around Isan countryside. Discussion between uncle Boonmee and his wife about after life happen. The aunt and his son are going inside the jungle and a cave looking for the spirit with red eyes. Uncle Boonmee is finally found in the cave. He has finished to recall his past lives and dies. A Buddhist ceremony for his funeral is organised. The nephew Tom is a monk. He decides to disrobe not able to withstand quiet life in the Buddhist temple. It seems that everybody is back to a normal life. This movie won Cannes 2010 festival palme d'or. Apichatpong Weerasethakul became the first Thai director to receive such award. The movie was shot in 16mm format. It seems to also be an homage to the dying film cinema replaced by digital cinema. People often hate or like Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s movies but they are worth seeing as offering a refreshing breath outside the modern Thai cinema stream.

Noi decides to enter the monkhood (บวช) and rejects his rock star attitude. He is looking for calm (เอาความสงบ) as he is a stressed man. The abbot reminds him the analogy between a hose splashing randomly due to water pressure and the spirit always wandering. Funny gags happen when monks are going out for alms (บิณฑบาตร) due to small size comic actor Koeti Aramboy trying to offer food to a giant monk or when a man is still jealous that his wife has a sweet spot for the abbot since decades. As usual there are flatulence jokes when spicy and sour food is given to monks. Robbers steal the temple bell (ระฆัง). Later they come to steal the Buddha head (มาขโมยพระ). Monks are all drugged but hopefully the main Buddha statue (หลวงพ่อ) is not stolen as it is too heavy! The gang leader is a burlesque Chinese vendor. He uses false claims regarding the monks that they enter monkhood while leaving pregnant women behind them. Noi is smart enough to counter their lies. Actor Akom Preedakul is playing a funny Thai boxing trainer bringing coyote dancers to the temple! Similar to 1980s-1990s decade comedy ghost movies, there is an sequence about villagers fleeing ghosts. Unfortunately the Buddha statue head is cut and stolen by the Chinese gang. The giant monk disguises himself as soft real Bouddha statue (Luang Pho Nim - หลวงพ่อนิ่ม) as a trick to find their cache. Then Noi asks his former bikers friends for help. They are led by Ed carabao, real leader of famous Thai band Carabao. The robbers are captured and the Buddha head recovered.

Ramon is a young lady. She is an English teacher in a HiSo family living in a palatial house. The family includes crazy domestics, a stammering son called Johnnie incapable to study hard during private English lesson, a lazy daughter called Maew, a mother (คุณหญิง) playing in illegal casino (บ่อน). Bow, young man, is fianced with Maew. The HiSo family wears exuberant clothes and has a high pitch tone when speaking. They all have funny long Thai names. The grandfather is sick but still has enough strength to hide four bunnies in his room. Ramon, the leading actress (นางเอก), is a poor lady bothered by the various jealous ladies. Johnnie's brother Phet, wearing a beautiful immaculate white suit, comes back from foreign countries. Maew and her mother (นางอิจฉา) dislike Ramon. Bow, despite being Maew's fiance, has high interest into Ramon. He offers her flowers and gifts causing Maew's ire. Bow asks Chet to act as an intermediate (พ่อซื้อ) to seduce Ramon. The HiSo family needs to think about Phet's wedding. During a family trip to Hua Hin, the mother and Maew use ruffians (ตัวกง) to injure Ramon but to no avail. The family has a declining jewelry business. Ramon makes new designs and Phet wishes to operate new business changes. Mysteriously Ramon's successful designs are stolen. During typical TV series, surprising announcements always happen on the last episode. So during the official collection launch, it is discovered that Ramon is a undercover policewoman. The family lawyer is dishonest and has stolen the jewelry designs. A wedding between Ramon and Chet can happily take place. This movie needs to be seen tongue in cheek as it is a satire of Thai TV serie / soap opera called locally 'Lakorn' (ละคร). It includes the leading actress (นางเอก), who is always a kind and nice person. She never kisses her boyfriend neither held his hand. The bad girl (นางอิจฉา) tries everything to be the main actor's girlfriend and always tries to get rid off the leading actress. She is often a stereotypical character who does not hesitate to do bad things to the leading actress. The leading actor is called พระเอก. A group of funny comedians (ตัวตลก) supports the leading actor. The funny comedians are represented here as 'katoei' (กะเทย - man dressed like a woman), who always has a silly but funny role to play. The movie is based on famous Thai TV series such as 'Baan Sai thong' (บ้านทรายทอง). It includes sickly sentimental music (รักเธอหมดใจ).

This movie takes place in 2022 eighteen years after the 2004 Tsunami. Three young people, i.e. Phu, Cindy and Phi Phi, are working with Dr Siam. The three young people participate to events and demonstrations to enhance population awareness regarding the worrying climate changes. Doctor Siam has lost his son during 2004 tsunami. Since he has worked on an alarm system to detect tsunami and earthquakes. Phu and Cindy are traumatised by 2004 tsunami events. In 2022, the climate has changed a lot. Thailand is no more safe regarding earthquakes. Three false alarms have been already raised by Dr Siam so the prime minister is in difficult position towards his coalition partner complaining that population evacuation hurts Thailand business. His main coalition partner wishes to replace the current prime minister and his son is a corrupted real estate investor only seeing his own interest. He is selling drugs also and wishes to expel Moken people from his paradise island. Nobody can stop him as he is the son of a politician. Rawai, a Moken, warns Dr Siam, regarding separations under the sea announcing underwater volcanoes explosions. Despite the danger Doctor Siam goes to his underwater lab to get important data and sacrifices his life. There is an urgent need to evacuate Bangkok due to coming 30m high tsunami waves. The mother nature takes revenge. The movie includes references to monarchy, Buddhism and Thai nation in a way similar to 1970s movies. Big earthquakes happen. Bangkok is submerged. The Prime minister is a modern politician capable of sacrifice for his nation and people. From his helicopter, he saves children from drowning but remains stranded on their school bus as the helicopter is overloaded already. A miracle happens as the giant Buddha statue in front of Bangkok gets detached from its pedestal, floats and gets the Prime Minister in its hand preventing him from drowning. The coalition partner dies as his luxury boat is overwhelmed by the huge waves (ความดีต้องชนะความชั่ว). The Doctor Siam body is wrapped into a Thai flag. The movie plays on the environmental and disaster films wave in 2009 (Home, 2012...). It has an environmental message that we all need to change our behavior to save the planet. It raises various issues (corrupted politicians, business interest versus citizen interest, sea-based Moken minority situation, society debauchery). Effective Fx are used but not good enough to make it believable.

One of them purchases a book titled The Ten Encounters, which describes ten ways to see ghosts. They wish to see ghost as it is fun time for them (เรื่องสนุก). They perform ceremony to call ghosts (พิธีเรียกผี). The ceremonies mix Chinese and Thai ways. One way is to hit chopsticks on a rice bowl to call hungry ghosts. Another way is to use a black cat at midnight to have the ghosts coming. One of the teen boy, Kofai, disappears as he urinates on a tree containing a ghost Mae Takhian (แม่ตะเคียน). It is an insult to the ghosts so he is taken away by them. One of the girls, Apliu, uses another way to see ghosts by applying coffin soil on her eyes. This soil is called hell soil (ดินนรก) and it burns her eyes. Hopefully the mother can help in time. She encourages them not to play with ghosts (รับไม่ไหว) as it is a dangerous matter (ใช้ของ). They still wish to find their friend Kofai. Hong Kong teens are back to their home town and still have ghosts visions in bus, when walking in tunnel or inside public housing estates (ก้มหน้าลง to see ghosts). The shots are particulary scary in Hong Kong old public housing estate. The teens want to stop playing ghost games. They performed a last ceremony to go to underworld by wearing dead people clothes but need to come back when a bell is ringing. They find Kofai but he prefers to stay in the world of death with his girlfriend. The mother cannot call them back on time and so they become spirits already (เรียกวิญญาณกลับไม่ทันเป็นผีแล้ว). The morality is not to play ghost game incorrectly (เล่นพิธีไม่ถูกก็ตายได้) as it can cause death. The film is actually the third of a film trilogy by the Pang brothers.

Rhanee (Jarunee Sooksawad) comes back from studying overseas. Her father is dead (it is in fact a picture of Mitr Chaibancha wearing Insee Daeng mask!) since many years but she takes over his duties by punishing and killing bad ruffian heads as a justiciary. Police inspector (สารวัตร) Decha (Sorapong Chatree) is responsible to catch Insee Daeng. Insee Daeng wishes to catch the heads inside the ruffians circle including Suphon (น้าใหญ่) (Kanchit Kwanpracha) and Lak Apichat. Suphon already faced Insee Daeng 20 years ago. Insee Daeng is fast and difficult to catch (มันไหวเหมือนพายุ). Decha uses one of the ruffians head as a bait to catch Insee Daeng. Decha doesn't shoot Insee Daeng as he has plan to use him as a way to reduce bad influence (อิทธิพล). Another trial to catch Insee Daeng by Decha fails. Meanwhile Decha tries also to stop organised mafia but without full success. Rhanee is working for Krissana, owner of insurance company and close friend of police inspector Decha. She takes opportunity to dispatch messages to the police through Krissana. Decha puts police woman Mot to protect Krissana against the mafia but he finally gets kidnapped. A 3M baht ransom is requested. Despite ransom payment, Krissana is still not freed and is tied to a railway path. Insee Daeng threatens a ruffian to get Krissana location. Police is warned and Krissana is released following shootings with ruffians. Insee Daeng succeeds to escape once again despite Mot’s opposition. Ruffians receive a new task to explode a bridge over Chao Praya river. Decha succeeds to put a microphone inside Suphon's home so is aware of their plans. Decha succeeds to neutralize part of the ruffians but Insee Daeng is the one stopping the bombs and killing the leaders. The bridge is safe. The movie ends with a nationalist image on Thai flag. This movie อินทรีผยอง (1988) tries to relaunch Insee Daeng serie but it lacks a good film directing. There is high suspicion that part of the movie has been cut by Lepso. Sorapong plays the police inspector with magnum 357 and dark glasses similar to many other 1980s movies he played in.

Jealousy happens between village men and the policemen regarding the subdistrict headman's beautiful daughters. Ai Dang (ไอ้ด่าง) is an intelligent crocodile so it is difficult to catch it. The crocodile expert is killed. Porn gives food to the crocodile in order that Ai Dang is full (กินอิ่มแล้ว) and so avoid any danger for the police inspector and villagers. The police inspector tries to catch the crocodile and puts nets in places but to no avail.

Chat (Sorapong Chatree) and Thanong (Sombat Methanee) are mafia members (นักเลง) and friends. Thanong is a mafia head (เจ้าพ่อ). There are always internal fights with other mafia leaders. Nancy (Apiradee Pawaputanon) is Chat's girlfriend. Chat and Thanong are dressed like Chicago gangsters and are always smoking cigars. Thanong's younger brother, Rut, is a policeman but he is not fully aware about his brother’s activities. Pen (Pumpuang Duangchan) is a nurse. Thanong likes her a lot (นักรัก). Thanong wishes to change his job but he cannot leave his subordinates (ลูกน้อง). Thanong asks Pen for wedding. A shooting happens during the wedding but none is injured. Chat escapes to Shing, who is now a traitor and wishes to get rid of Thanong to take his position (บ้าอำนาจ). Thanong, through a Typical Rambo 2 scene with big guns, wishes to punish Shing. Thanong is captured by the police following a rampage at Shing’s home and sent to jail. Chat needs to send Nancy away so that he can handle the situation. She is finally killed. Chat wishes to revenge her. There is a famous scene featuring a killing rampage by Chat in a restaurant with guns hidden in each flower pot. Three years have passed. Thanong is released from prison but he doesn't want to return to underworld mafia. Chat was injured to the ankle so he cannot walk properly anymore. Chat is now a car glass washer. Without their boss, Thanong’s men are wrecked (กูรอมึง). Thanong is accused of Rut's sister murder. Rut is upset because his brother is a ruffian (เป็นพี่เป็นโจร) so his management doesn't trust him. Thanong’s men including Chat are disappointing that Thanong wants to be out of mafia business (วางมือจากวงการ) and doesn’t want to give a lesson to Shing. Shing wants Thanong to be back in business as partner but Thanong refuses. Shing’s men beat severely Chat and also threaten Rut to convince Thanong to change his mind. Chat succeeds to get proofs regarding Shing’s illegal activities. Those proofs are given to Rut. Before fleeing, Chat and Thanong wish to face Shing a last time for an ultimate revenge. It is the last movie where Sombat Methanee had the leading role. This Thai movie is based on the Hong Kong movie “A Better Tomorrow” (1986) shot by John Woo. The scenario is very similar. It involves strong action and some comedy. Sorapong Chatree plays same role as Chow Yun-Fat. The movie is entertaining but the realisation is not as good as the one from John Woo. The end of the movie is very weird. It stops abruptly when Thanong is going to face Shing. Thanong is expected to die. There is unfortunately a weird movie abrupt ending.

The spirit needs a virgin (หญิงพรหมจารี) and pure blood. The spirit extends his life since more than 100 years thanks to virgin blood (บริสุทธิ์). Kaew is finally possessed (ถูกผีเข้า), speaks with a male voice and has extreme strength (แรงมาก). She tries to strangle the domestic helper. While the husband is out to get a doctor, Kaew continues her rampage towards her mother and the domestic helper. The mother and domestic helper are not strong enough face to a hell spirit (ผีนรก). The domestic helper is killed. The Thai husband arrives too late with a doctor. The doctor is even thrown out of the window and dies. Vichan (Porjed Kaenpetch), Sankap’s friend, visit them and is surprised to find the house very quiet and the two corpses. He has difficulties to believe in ghosts until the spirit wakes up. Vichan suspects the guardian so follows him up inside his hut. Oon suggests to call a shaman (หมอผี). The guardian is neither mute neither handicapped. Some zombie try to catch Vinchan. Meanwhile the spirit lies to Oon and convinces her to open the locked door. Fight happens between the spirit and Sankap. Despite cutting its arms and head, Sankap is overcome by the spirit. Sankap and Oon are killed. A purification fire started by Vichan burns the skeleton and wax effigies. Spirits are defeated. Vichan promises to take care of Kaew.

Both Nirut and Krung are captured by the gang but succeeded to escape. Khun Ling (Aranya Namwong) or White Rose is arriving from Singapore.

They are aggressed on the way to their village by two men including Manop Aussawathep. They step back when understanding that Kinaree, who was fighting strongly, is a lady (นางฟ้า). Pipop Pupinyo, the village leader, remembers that many years he wanted to burn Kinaree as she was accused to be a tiger devil spirit. A monk stopped the burning and gave a sacred necklace to prevent Kinaree to become a spirit again (เวรกรรมของหลาน). She has to keep until being 20 years old. Kinaree and her grandmother were expelled from the village but are now back. One young villager tries to abuse Kinaree while she is bathing in the waterfall. When angry, she becomes the tiger devil spirit again and kills the villager. The grandmother Malee falls and gets injured. Per Kinaree's request, Manop searches for a doctor. Doctor Sombat Methanee then checks Malee but she finally dies. Pipop, afraid of Kinaree, leads the villagers to burn her again. The doctor decides to bring Kinaree in Bangkok but faces Manop, who is jealous. The doctor and Kinaree succeed to flee Manop and the angry crowd. They are back to Bangkok. New characters are present in the doctor's home, Chosri Misommon as domestic helper, Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit as mother, Mayurachath Muarnprasitivej as his fiancee Dao (ปากเสียใหญ่), friends such as Chom (Duangjai Hathaikarn) and Chatree (Adul Dulyarat). She is used in the kitchen but is useless (เด็กเวร). Dao has a lover (เล่นชู) called Chai (อนันต์ สัมมาทรัพย์). There is a ballroom event. Dao tries to humiliate Kinaree (ชาวป่า) during the ball but to no avail. She hires the car driver to hurt Kinaree but she becomes a tiger devil spirit (ผีเสือ) again and kills him. Today is Kinaree’s birthday. Dao aware that Kinaree could be a spirit is willing to challenge her. She removes her necklace and slaps her. Horror happens with Chai is killed and Dao injured by the tiger devil spirit. Police shots the spirit a few minutes before Kinaree's 20th birthday. Kinaree becomes a full human but dies due to her injuries in the doctor's arms. Another version of Kinaree was released in year 1969 (กินรี) with Sombat and Suthisa.

Prakan (Sombat Methanee) and Wi Ok Hen Lom (Chaiya Suriyun) are Pa Wieng's sons. Pa Wieng is the head of a team of bandits (โจร). Once Prakan knows Pa Wieng is not his real father, he flees to find his real father, Sing. A couple, Karn and his girlfriend Duang, is fleeing as Pa Wieng's ruffians are following them up. Karn dies but Duang is saved by Prakan (Sombat Methanee). Pa Wieng is Prakan's stepfather (พ่อเลี้ยง). Prakan is now considered as a traitor (ลูกหมา, ทรยศ) as he tried to flee. Wi Ok Hen Lom is always following Prakan remotely and helps him when needed. Prakan and Duang arrive in the adjacent district. Luang (Dam Datsakorn) is the subdistrict headman (กำนัน) and her sister Deuan (Aranya Namwong) is the village headman. They control very strictly the subdistrict. Sing was the former village headman but his authority has been neutralized. Prakan wants to find the former village headman (ผู้ใหญ่บ้าน) Sing, who is his real father. But Sing refuses to recognize him as his son. Prakan and Duang (เพื่อนรัก) are captured by Deuan (คนเก่ง). Sing's daughter, Kotko, supports them. Prakan helps to protect their oil stock and gets back his freedom. Finally Sing recognises Prakan (ลูกพ่อ). Luang believes Prakan is a undercover policeman (ตำรวจชายแดน). Saming is another mafia leader and is Luang's best friend. Saming and Luang destroy Prakan's house but Deuan doesn't agree (ไม่เห็นด้วย, ไม่ยุติธรรม). It is war declaration with Prakan. Prakan uses rape as weapon to revenge himself against Deuan. Luang asks the district officer (นายอำเภอ) to arrest them but Deuan provides an alibi to Prakan. Luang decides to give Deuan to Saming but Prakan rescues her on time (มารับเมีย). Now Prakan has two wives (มีเมีย2คน), Deuan and Duang! Kotko and Duang are kidnapped. Pa Wieng comes to help but dies in the fight against Luang and Saming. As expected, ruffians are defeated. It is a typical action movie from 1970s decade when local authorities were not respecting the law and were local kingpins. It is also a very bad habit in Thai movies and Thai TV series (ละคร) to use rape as an expression of love. In 2006, a Thai movie with the same name was released but it was a comedy.

An electronic device is put near his brain to force him acting on any orders from Yai. Yai uses Chai to give a punchy lesson to Hong. Brothels are similar to slavery as women are chained together. The mamasan (มาม่าซัง) pretends to help Choimai but it is another trap also. She is only interested by her ring and necklace.

Three men are arrested by the Thai police following a trip to Hong Kong as they are suspected to sell drugs. They are released as no proofs are found. They met a guy called Daeng in the cell and befriended together. A young lady, Maria, Tawai's assistant, pick them up. Daeng is trying to join Tawai's secret organization, which is buying and selling weapons and drugs. Such organization undermines Thailand. As Tawai orders Daeng to kill Krit (Sombat Methanee), Daeng reveals that he is a hidden policeman and convinces Krit, who is a drug smuggler, to join his side. Policemen and gangster groups go to the golden triangle, border between Thailand, Laos and Burma. Heavy fightings happen between both groups. The country traitors are killed or captured. Some policemen are killed but they didn't die in vain as they give their life for the nation, the religion and the monarchy. It is a typical action movie of mid 1970s in which Thailand needs to be protected against external red communist threat. There is a rupture with traditional movies as Thai actors shake hands, listen to western music and kiss ladies in front of spirits shrines.

It was the first teen movie, which changed the local trend where the main actor had to be always polite, good looking with a robust body. The director, Piak Poster, used a new actor, Phairoj Sangwaribut, who was quite slim. At the beginning, the movie was a failure. No theaters were interested to show it as the 6th October 1976 sad events just happened. Piak Poster shown it to the students and good feedbacks started to spread. Nice modern songs and guitar performances helped to popularize the movie. Finally it reaped 8 millions Baht. ตั้ม and โอ๋ became popular nicknames in that period.

He succeeds to flee and take refuge in a home where lives a beautiful and not shy lady. She is part of the mafia group but is fond of Yang so she doesn't drug him. She dies while protecting him. Yang, chased by police and ruffians (ผู้ร้าย) decides to take a break at his blind mum's house. Per his promise to his mum, Yang refuses to be involved (ไม่รวมมือ) anymore. Yan is finally kidnapped, beaten and left for dead by the ruffians. Ratee, passing by with her car, helps him. Yang is in reality an undercover agent and is now wishing to take his revenge against the ruffians. Yan is surnamed Tabai Fai (ตะบันไฟ). The ruffians are leading an international ring involved in fake money and drug trafficking. Police Chief officer (played by veteran actor and famous action director Kom Akadej) asks Yan to join the ruffians (วงการ) in order to neutralize them from inside and so to help Thailand, his country. Yan gains the ruffians' confidence as they all escape from jail. Thanks to an hidden microphone, a bank robbery is foiled. But the organisation is now aware that there is a traitor among its members. The boss girlfriend (Metta Roongrat) is also suspected. Yan puts a hidden micro in another ruffian pocket so that he cannot be accused. Finally the organisation discovers Ratee and Yan are working on same side against them. Ratee is taken as hostage. The ruffians also kill Yan's mother as retrieval. Yan and the policemen storm their secret base and traitors to Thailand are all punished. The movie ตะบันไฟตะไลเพลิง was released in year 1975. It has a damaged but still colorful picture. it is a typical cold war movie from 1960s / 1970s reminding James Bond style movies. The main actor is Phaophan Phongnathee and is quite unknown as he played only in a few movies during 1970s decade. Fights with Yan reminds Tony Ja’s Muay Thai style fighting 30 years before while using slow pace filming on key movements.
