Following huge success of movie “Mon Rak Luk Tung” (มนต์รักลูกทุ่ง) in 1970, many song movies were released to catch up with this trend. Such movies include songs, a bit of action, romance and humor. Thai movie เพลงสวรรค์นางไพร is one of them and was released in year 1971. It features nine songs. Director is พิชิต มีชัย. This movie was a lost movie in Thailand. In year 2013, a last copy was found in a Thai temple in the North of Thailand. Only three reels of the movie are left, so around 1h30mn. Unfortunately the film reels were in bad condition due to water soaking, so only 18mn are only usable. This remaining extract is available online. It is in 16mm format so there is no sound as such format requires dubbing. No songs are left. No movie poster is left. A movie partial summary is still available. Thai movie แก้วขนเหล็ก with Kanchit Kwanpracha and Petchara Chaowarat released in year 1971 was very popular and even earns more money than other 35mm movies. Anyway in 1972 most theaters in Bangkok shift to 35mm projectors. Due to provincial theaters (โรงหนังต่างจังหวัด), outdoor theaters (หนังเร่), "movies to sell drugs" (หนังขายยา) not using 35mm projectors as they were still expensive, 16mm copies have to be given to them. Sombat Methanee is Waiwai, working as forest guard. Pawana Chanajit is SaenGneun. Others actors include Sawin Sawangrat, Choomporn Theppitak, Anucha Ratanaman, Krai Kanchit, Khomapat Attaya, countryside folk singers (นักร้องลูกทุ่ง) such as Noppadol Duangporn.

Romance is happening between Waiwai and SaenGneun. A small sequence shows Sombat Methanee punching ruffians. The remaining sequences are not enough to understand the movie.

Seua (เสือ)(สมชาย ศรีภูมิ) is Sing's younger brother and becomes a bad guy under Kam Maen's guidance. Finally the father dies and legates everything to Sing. Saeng Rawee and Kam Maen try everything to destroy the testament (พินัยกรรม). Ruffians ask for the testament from doctor Phan. As he fights back he is shot dead and his wife is kidnapped. Phum Reun (ภุมริน), a friend, informs Sing regarding the latest news regarding his father's death, the doctor death and his young brother becoming a bad guy (โจร). Doctor (หมอ) Phan was his friend so Sing needs to go home to investigate who killed him. Sing gathers 7 friends to fight back against Kam Maen. One of them is Dokrak (ดอกรัก)(Choomporn Theppitak). Doktoi (ดอกเตย), owner of a local bar, recruits Dokrak, good singer, as he protects her versus ruffians led by Chanee Yotchai. Doktoi is Kam Maen's minor wife but there is no real love so she provides useful information to Dokrak. Sing and his friends prepare a plan. Seua, Sing's young brother, drinks heavily. Sing wants to bring him back to the right path (สายเลือดเดียวกัน). The two brothers fight as Sing doesn't want his brother Seua to become a bad guy. Ruffians would like to get the whole money so push the two brothers against each other. Sing meets Thaephee (Petchara Chaowara), who is a teacher inside the village.

Karaket brings flowers to her mother grave, Nang Sopha. Ladies O and Karaket are half sisters, i.e. same father but different mothers. O's mother was the main wife. Karaket's mother, Nang Sopha, was the minor wife (เมียน้อย). Kangwan's father and the two daughters' father agreed to have Kangwan marry one of the two daughters. O and her mother are jealous towards Karaket especially as Kangwan has more interest into Karaket than into O. The mother decides to have Karaket killed. She is already responsible of Karaket's mother death twenty years ago by poisoning. The mother and her maid try to poison Karaket's drinking water. Nang Sopha ghost protects her daughter but no killing shall be done to avoid adding more sins to her karma (กรรม). The poisoning attempt fails thanks to the ghost intervention. The bad mother then uses a monk to purify the house and install a sacred thread around the house to prevent ghosts from entering. Kangwan has to go to India to continue his studies. Meanwhile the bad mother attempts another trial to kill Karaket by putting a snake inside a box. This time due to sacred tread (สายสิญจน์) the ghost cannot help her and she dies following the snake bite. Kangwan is at Taj Mahal when Karaket's spirit asks for help. It is time for judgement in hell and Phra Yom (God of the underworld) takes Karaket with him. Kangwan has to fulfill the earlier promise between both families and is forced to marry O. But thanks to his knowledge in white magic, his soul (วิญญาณ) goes to hell to pick up Karaket and brings her back in the living world. The trueness behind Karaket's death is known. The mother sizes a gun and kills her maid, who has revealed the truth, and is strangled by Nang Sopha ghost before being able to kill Karaket a second time. Kangwan and Karaket can marry happily.
