The musical movie “หลงเสียงนาง” is now very difficult to find in Thailand. It is easier to find a Cambodian copy (VHS tape only) than the Thai original version. In the Cambodian version, some songs are still in Thai language and not Khmer language! Many songs are featured including the hit “Long Sieng Nang” (หลงเสียงนาง). The movie scenario is quite similar to "Mon Rak Luuk Thung" (มนต์รักลูกทุ่ง), i.e. a romantic musical comedy. The movie director is Rangsee Thatsanaphayak (รังสี ทัศนพยัคฆ์). He directed around 100 movies! This movie features four veteran actors (Sawin Sawangrat, Somkuan Krajangsat, Prachuap Ruekyamdee, Nirut Sirijanya as Yot) and two veteran actresses, i.e. Monrudee Yamaphai as Chalita (ชลิตา) and Thitima Sangkapitak as Chontima (ชลธิมา). The main actor is seldom seen in Thai movies, i.e. Chokchai ChokAnan (โชคชัย โชคอนันต์) as he played in two movies only. Chokchai ChokAnan is a Thai country music singer, who became famous thanks to the song “หลงเสียงนาง”. This song was even adapted in Khmer language (ลา..ลา..ลา.....). Chokchai ChokAnan is half Thai and half Indian. He is playing character Nat. A car from Bangkok is arriving with two young ladies in the village. Yot and Nat, two close friends, tease the two Bangkokian ladies with their motorbike. Finally the two couples tease each other. The Bangkok ladies wish to discover rural life and try to drive a tractor. Nat tries to seduce Chalita through love songs but she is reluctanct. Finally love emerges but the father forbids the young ladies to see the boys. They have to use tricks to see each other. Chalita is finally fianced by her father to an older Chinese Bangkokian businessman. Nat is upset but Chalita was forced. Nat sends a little boy to sing a song telling his disappointment.

Manvika draws a line between public life and private life. She works hard to pay her daughter’s studies. There is a crazy painter called Marut (Manop Aussawathep) living near their home and drawing big vagina, i.e. his vision of a mother, or big penis (พระเจ้า), i.e. his vision of the humanity creation.

Veena has feelings that her mother doesn't spend enough time with her and more time with other men while playing movies. A journalist called Surasak keeps harassing the mother. As a vengeance as Manvika slapped him, the journalist publishes picture of her daughter Veena presented as a new star (ดาวรุ่งดาวใหม่). Despite not being aware, Veena is threatened to be expelled if it ever happens again as her school can only accept good mindset lady (สุภาพบุรุษสตรี). Society doesn't make a difference between a job and real personality of people. They all believe Manvika can only be an easy woman. The artist is also despised as sexual representations cannot be art according to society prejudices. While going back from restaurant, Veena's friend car hits the artist.

Surasak’s wife (Metta Roongrat) asks him to consider how he would react if his own daughter was tarnished the same way. Nobody comes to Veena’s birthday (รังเกียจหนู). Newspapers can shape belief of people as even Manvika doubts about her own daughter. Only the artist understood her, so she leaves her home to find him in Koh Samet (เข้าใจกันดี). Following Manvika's tearful pleas, Surasak recognizes his mistakes and promises not to write about her and her family anymore. Being recognized on Koh Samet island, police and her mother are coming to get Veena back. Veena doesn't want to go back with her mum and be called as sex star daughter (ลูกสาวดาวโป้) again.
