Kolumpo is a Malaysian anthology film scheduled for release on 5 December 2013. It is a collection of three multilingual short stories directed by Bront Palarae, Sheikh Munasar, and Rozi Izma. The film is produced by the directors alongside associate producer James Wong under the production company Otto Films SDN BHD.
Set in Kuala Lumpur, the story weaves together the common themes of life, hopes and dreams. The cast includes Sharifah Amani, Azad Jazmin, Ruminah Sidek, Nell Ng, Mano Maniam, Soffi Jikan, Sabri Yunus, Sherry Alhadad, Along Eyzandy, Radhi Khalid and Emely Poon.
Rahul, an Indian immigrant arrives in town to discover that the company that offered him a job has gone out of business. He is helped by a local restaurant owner and begins his life in the city as an illegal immigrant worker.
In Setapak, Gienna is a Chinese woman in her thirties who is constantly avoiding phone calls from her mother. She finds herself spending an afternoon helping a stranger, a senile old lady, who cannot remember where her house is.
In Ampang, Hafidd, a young man, meets a pretty stranger at the KLCC LRT station after they both miss the last train. For someone who has never dated anyone in his life, this is a life-defining moment and his only hope of a glimpse of love.
Together the three stories create a collage of the human connections that give life to the city.
There are hidden messages in each of the three short stories. The first story shows the injustice in life can received further injustice. In the second stories carry the message that kindness can cuts through racial barriers while racism exist in different levels of the Malaysian society. The final instalment delivers a subtle message: When one opens his mind to see the beauty in life, life can be beautiful.
