Cheutchai (Sombat Methanee) spends a lot of time to read James Bond novels so behaves similarly and weirdly (บ้าๆ บอๆ). This movie reminds of French movie “L'animal” with Jean-Paul Belmondo. Cheutchai is mistaken as another Cheutchai by some ruffians at Bangkok airport. He is brought to a meeting of a mysterious secret organisation (องค์กร). They are all wearing animal mask to hide their real identity and call themselves by number. Traitors are killed by a black panther. Cheutchai is given a mission by sexy number 9, Sareuthai, to kill a politician. He is recruited as a hitman but doesn't shoot the politician so causing the ruffians' ire. He flees through a two driving sides Mini British car. There is a car chase through Bangkok, then until the top of the Golden Mountain and then through a side car. Cheutchai needs to hide in a brothel to escape the ruffians and then in a gogo bar. He finally flees with dancer Aranya and takes refuge in her home. Cheutchai asks help from Sareuthai. She suggests him to kill the organisation leader and gives him the building map. Sareuthai is later killed by the black panther due to her betrayal to the organisation. Cheutchai decides to enter in the building at nighttime but he is captured. Being joked on his qualification as Thai scout (ลูกเสือ), he punches back. During 1970s the Thai scout organisation was seen as a protector of Thai kingdom against external threats such a red communists. He succeeds to escape thanks to Aranya. Police arrives on time to rescue them. Cheutchai and Aranya neutralize the organisation leaders (ทำร้ายชาติ) at Don Meuang airport. In 1976 Don Meuang airport was still used for international travel. Aranya was in fact an uncovered policeman. This movie is a mix of action and comedy. The VCD includes two soundtracks. The second soundtrack in Isan language adds many oral jokes absent in the original Thai soundtrack. The movie features also a funky 1970s music soundtrack. It is produced by “Methanee film” company and Sombat Methanee is also the film director. It is a two hours movie.
