Thai movie ระเริงชล was released in year 1972 and lasts 2h07mn. It was released under VCD format by XxX company in year 2001. Director is Chalong Pukdeewichit. The movie was found overseas and the picture is sharp and colorful. Unfortunately the first part of the movie (around 20 minutes) was missing. So in order to be able to release the movie, a remaining 35mm film was digitized. As the film reel was almost 30 years old, the colors were gone and scratches could be seen. But at least the first 20 minutes were recovered and VCD was released. Eight songs are featured including the group “Impossible” (วงดิอิมพอสซิเบิ้ล), Songthong and เพลิน พรหมแดน... Petchara wears extraordinary hats in this movie. Pak (Sombat Methanee) is back from overseas. Per his parents' arrangement, he needs to marry a young lady called Rareung (Petchara Chaowarat). His father (Rujira Isarangkul) and his mother (Somjit Sapsamruey) have a debt towards Thon (Lor Tok) and his wife (Marasri Isarangkul), who helped them financially. They must have gratitude (บุญคุณ) towards this family. It is the overseas student versus the upcountry lady (เด็กบ้านนอก). Pak is not willing to marry Rareung and wishes to break the engagement (ถอดหมั้น) as he has a fiancee, called Sopha (นงลักษณ์ โรจนพรรณ), still being overseas. The young lady, Rareung, is behaving like a hippy. If no wedding, Pak's father has to pay back the debt but he doesn't have the money. Pak agrees to work for Thon one year in order to pay back his father’s debts. The engagement is maintained. They have to move back to Rayong. Pak met Pleun (เพลิน) as local architect and Sang (Songthon). Plaem (Orasa Isarangkul) is aggressed by ruffians including Pan Borapet. Pleun and Rareung help her on time. Sopha is back from USA and is willing to pay the 1M Baht debt. Pak refuses as he is not a thing that can be purchased. Rareung calls him “golden pimp” (แมงดาปิดทอง)! Pak is authorised by Thon to go to Sopha’s birthday. A fight occurs during Sopha’s birthday. Bouleu (พ.ต.ต.ประชา พูนวิวัฒน์) hires ruffians to beat Pak as he sees him as a rival. Rareung and his friends help him. Sopha's mother (ประพิศ พราวพรรณ) wishes her daughter to marry Bouleu, a rich businessman. Bouleu has a mistress already (Wassana Chalakorn). Den (ปรีดา จุลละมณฑล) has a car accident with Sopha so he tries to seduce her and comes to her house. Rareung's mother is suddenly dead. Thon has a mistress. Her brother Chu (Taksin Jampol) pushes her to become official wife. Pak refuses that Rareung's breaks her debt contract. Rareung is aggressed by three ruffians but Pak helps her on time. Bouleu hires Chu to recover some drugs fallen in the sea. A party (งานฉลอง) is organised to celebrate new bungalows opening so many families are gathering. Sopha knows she lost to Rareung. Bouleu proposes to help her by damaging the parachute. While Rareung is parasailing, Paen Pleumsachai shoots the parachutes and ruffians kidnap the ladies. They ask for 1M baht ranson to Thon.
