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.

Naresuan was sent back to Pegu to represent his father in paying homage to King Nandabayin, who had succeeded Bayinnaung, who passed away in 1581. Naresuan participated with his troops in a Burmese expedition against a Shan state and succeeded in taking a city after the Burmese crown prince and another prince had failed to do so. Naresuan thereby gained the jealous animosity of the crown prince, who plot various attacks against him. Naresuan proclaimed independence from Burma. When crossing River Satong, Naresuan had his forces under attack. With his army across, Naresuan is given a long rifle by his tutor, the monk Khanchong. Naresuan takes aim at the Burmese General across the mile-wide river and fires, killing the man and causing the Burmese troops to loose their morale and cease to follow. In 2009 King Naresuan 3 and 4 are being filmed with government financial support. The Ministry of Culture prioritises its financial support to films that deal with promoting loyalty to the pillars of nation, religion and monarchy. We are back to old times under Thanin Kraivichian's government (1976-1977), where Thai people were tought to be afraid of communism and that the way to survive was already to protect the nation, the religion and the monarchy.

It depicts a well-to-do Thai-Chinese businessman called Mongkol, his wife, two daughters and son. Things go wrong when two Burmese immigrants hired by the family to do household work get into a fight with his son. They are arrested, but escape from the police and return to the family's house. There they kill the daughter and attack the remaining family members. Dang, a homeless man, witnesses the entire thing. Dang comes from a troubled past, his father was a police captain who was drunkard. His mother's lover subsequently murdered Dang's family. Dang, shocked by the event, became mad and started wondering the streets. As he witnesses the immigrants attack the family, he has his own uncontrollable flashbacks of his own family getting murdered. He tries to communicate with the police to tell them what he sees, but is unable to do so. He is finally the one to help the Thai-Chinese family. It puts the stress about how Thai people are oppressed by the police (i.e. ruthless policemen beating illegal Burmese immigrants, policemen asking and receiving bribes, policemen taking advantage of prostitutes, policemen modifying proofs and truth to get promotion). The multi-layer visual style might turn off normal audience but this is a rare example of avant-garde Thai indie film.

Taptim is the young 15 years old sister-in-law. They are boat people (คนเรือ) since generations. The barge arrives in Bangkok. Plang is fed up with her life on the boat. She is still young and wants to have fun. She threathens Saeng to choose between his sand barge and her. She would like to sell the sand barge and change their life. Saeng bought the sand at high price but the Bangkokian trader only proposes a low price. The boat is leaking and needs repair. He refuses to sell as it means losing money. Plang believes she can be an actress (ดารา). Plang meets in a hair-dresser shop a gentle lady called Mrs Aree, who proposes to help her. Due to her provincial accent, Mrs Aree understands immediately who is Plang and sell her dreams. Mrs Aree is in fact a mama-san (มาม่าซัง). Taptim refuses to join Plang as she is afraid to become a prostitute in Bangkok. Plang quits the barge. Saeng is shocked and finally sells the sand at lower cost to have money and to look for his wife in Bangkok. Bangkok is so big. He walks bare foot alone through the streets, markets and malls to no avail. Taptim has to take care of the baby as both parents are out in Bangkok. Saeng meets the taxi driver who brought his wife to the hair dresser. The taxi is his home same as the boat is Saeng's home. There is mutual understanding between the two men (คนบ้านนอก). Aree is said to be working in a Patpong gogo bar. There are dozens of bars in Patpong. Mrs Aree is now said to be a woman recruiting girls for Chao Praya massage parlour. Saeng succeeds to get Mrs Aree's address but has spent a lot of money. Being drunk, he falls in the river while boarding the boat and so loses his money. Saeng has to sell his boat for 100 000 baht but once debts are paid, there is a few money left to buy a small boat. In Bangkok, business is business. The taxi driver is not as friendly as in first opus and will not transport Saeng for free. Saeng continues to walk and walk many days around Sukhumvit area but cannot find Plang. Meanwhile Plang is still dreaming. Mrs Aree introduces an old rich man to Plang. She is the birthday gift of a movie producer. It is a financial transaction. After a diner, Plang is drunk and sent to a motel. Meanwhile Saeng finds Mrs Aree but then there is a fight with the condominium guard. He is beaten and sent to jail. Realizing that the older man is trying to rape her, Plang fights back and flees but Mrs Aree's ruffians beat her. Taptim pays for Saeng's bail so that he can exit from jail. Saeng wishes to get Taptim as new wife. They all go back to countryside. Anyway they are reunited as a family. When aims are too high, the fall is tough.
