A few still pictures are still available showing Amara Asavananda wearing color Hao Dong costume. It was a big commercial success thanks also to great advertisements including radio, TV, huge billboards up to 12 meters (คัทเอาต์ขนาดยักษ์) of actress Amara Asavananda in popular areas of Bangkok. Three gangs of robbers are bringing trouble in Bangkok. Hao Dong works alone. Hao Dong is a former military (ทหารม้า). He is not a ruthless gangster like the two other groups. Feeling betrayed, the other groups (เล็บเหล็ก, แสงเทียน) wish to get rid of Hao Dong. As he dies, his daughter (Amara Asavananda) takes over. Chaiya is playing a policeman and love will emerge with Amara. The success of movie Hao Dong is due to the presence of 3 famous Thai comic stars (Lor Tok, Dokdin Kanyaman, Sompong Phonmitr). Tae Prakardwutthisan had also the good idea to make a simple but entertaining song to be diffused on radios for movie promotion. It mentions Dokdin as ตัวดำๆ. A movie as that time was always a financial risk due to potential military coup d'etat as it could ruin all investments on a movie. Hao Dong generated 1.3M baht revenue.
