JKT48 The Movie – Make Your Own Synopsis
Well, the director from the not yet named JKT48 movie already stated in an interview with HAI Magazine that he will not created a biopic movie. There’s still no further info what kind of movie he will make although many speculates that it will be yet another ordinary teen love story one…which already saturated the market along with the horrid ghastly ghost-porn movies.
The director himself already got some “input” from fans which unfortunately more like a demand or worse, threat, rather than ideas such as “REMEMBER! JKT48 IS NOT ONLY MELODY!!” and the likes which is not helping the director at all.
But then, I’m not here not to criticize the fans nor the director. I want to positioned myself here as an audience in the movie theater seat as well as JKT48 fan. What kind of movie that can involve all the girls and still pretty much exciting to watch rather that your ordinary teen love story? So here’s my take for JKT48 the Movie – Make Your Own Synopsis with various genres I have in mind.
Please bear in mind that I’m not a professional in this -penning the story- for movie industry.
Melody is an idol in her school. She’s beautiful, excelled in sports, good at music and her overall grade is the highest among her peers. She’s loved by not only her classmates, all of the students adored her due to her flexibility in making friends. The school teachers highly refers her for her politeness and good grades.
One thing that they don’t know is that deep inside Melody’s mind, is a secret that no one will ever realize. Melody is a sadist with an overly possessive mental disorder. She finds no remorse killing animals nor human. Her possessive trait can be tracked by the missing of her parents as well as her sister, Frieska along with some of her best friends which actually, she already killed and hid the corpses -albeit only their head- perfectly inside her house -all due to the name of living together forever and ever.
The missing case of her parents, sister and some of her best friends is not being overlook by the police, of course. But with not enough evidence they decided to finds more by infiltrating the school using undercover agents of five. Alas, their effort is leaked somehow (Who leaked it?) and Melody knows their plan.
Knowing she is now cornered, and the growing suspicions from some of her peers as well as teachers, all hell breaks loose in one fated night in the soon to be covered by blood school.
Pros : Well, it was set up in a school, so yeah, the director can cast all the members a role in the movie itself without having too much to think about character development aside from Melody and (optionally) the five undercover agents. And why Melo? Well…she have this graceful outer appearance and suited very well as an idol in her school.
Cons : Not much character development and a simple closed premise, double sided sword. The director will need to make the gore presented as creative as possible to avoid making an extremely boring slasher movie.
The year 20xx, the war between humanity and an intruder from outer space is now taking its place on earth. Losing in technology and numbers, humans -that are now cornered to a desolated island around Indonesia- decided to create a platoon they called the “Valkyrie” which consists of selected girls from survivors family.
It is not your usual platoon though, each of the “Valkyries” were operated and injected with various animals DNA and organs ranging from small bugs to elephant to help them transform themselves into a far-stronger being by using a very strange catalyst, a white powder substance that will be revealed later on. This operation itself have a higher percentage of success by using woman rather than man, thus the platoon only consist of girls lucky enough to passed the earlier procedure.
The platoon objective is simple enough, recover earth from the intruder step by step as fast as possible and kill all the enemies, spare no one. It’s going smoothly at first although they lost some of their platoon members as a war casualty. But the further they succeed, the higher the tolls their body have to endure…
Can they succeed in recovering earth? will be there any of the “Valkyries” survived? Will humanity thrives once more? What is the secret behind the transformation and the white substance? Why the aliens are attacking earth? What is their motives?
Pros: Platoon. You can fit all the members there. Character development only needed for several leading characters, mainly the Captain (Kinal and Naomi)
Cons: Special effect, special effect, special effect
Stella is a drug user trying to escape herself from the dark world she’s in. The fact the she was blind and deaf from birth (as she knows it) with her families neglecting her is not helping her recovery whatsoever.
Abandoned, alone and in needs for a shoulder to cry on, Stella resides on a teenage drug lord, Ghaida, who operates her rings of operation in Jakarta backed by a very unassuming Japanese diplomat played by Akicha.
Stella thinks of Ghaida very highly, unbeknownst to her is that Ghaida is using her fully as her main income of money, as a prostitute, courier to her drug business as well as her dog pet. Raped and tied to the ring of Satan herself, Stella is in a state of depression and trying hard to leave the underworld.
Meanwhile on the other parts of the city, Detective Ve is involved in a selected group of joined operation between Indonesia and Japan elite police enforcers that will attack and ambush Ghaida’s hideout. Ve have just lost her little sister, Nabilah, in an accident involving drugs abuse. One thing that Ve noted is that the Japanese captain, Haruka, is very interested in the case of Nabilah’s death.
The attack is successful, but alas, Ghaida able to escape the premise beforehand.
In a search of the premise, Ve finds Stella leashed in a dog collar in the basement of the premise. Locked in a cage. Feeling pity for her and her shocked of losing her little sister, Ve decided to help Stella and adopted her into her family.
Stella, who in her life always treated like a dog, finds it difficult to live in a very different environment. Various attempts were made to help her regain her already crushed mentality as well her addiction to the drugs by Ve with almost no to little effect. It is not an easy task for Ve herself who have to learn how to communicate well with the deaf and blind Stella, but she keen on helping Stella more and more and more. She loves her as her own sister.
The long road to her rehab, both to her drug addiction and mental is almost paid. Until…Ghaida is back to retrieve her dog…
Can Ve help Stella? Will Ghaida enslaved Stella again? Can the Japanese police captain, Haruka, tracked and catch the main culprit behind the drugs ring leader, Akicha, who again scheming something towards Stella by sending Ghaida to retrieve her? Why is Stella is so very wanted by the ring leader? What is Akicha’s connection with Stella? Is it got something to do with Stella’s blind and deaf condition? Why Haruka is very interested to Nabilah’s case? The puzzles will complete as each of the them took their decisions for their next step with an interconnected red strings…
Pros: The members acting capability will be challenged here. The process to Stella’s mental rehab and Ve effort to communicate with Stella will be a very interesting point here. How Ve teaches Stella with touch and learning from it will be very interesting to be develop further and of course how Ve coped with the fact that Stella is a drug user herself that still left her with a trauma after the lost of her little sister.
Cons: Not all members can be fit into this story, but then again, it is still possible to include all the members as parts of the casts, such as Ghaida’s underling, Stella’s friends in the Rehab center and many more with no longer that a few lines of speaking role (or no speaking role) that doesn’t interfere too much to the continuation of the story nor needing any character development. The branching of the story of Ve and Stella could somehow become too long and boring if it is not shot in a right pace.
Well, that’s all that I could think of
