As expected, come on. I saw her on the Tonight show, she doesn’t exuberant star quality, she was just there. Certain people have it,certain people just don’t. ‘Khu Kam (Ill-fated Lovers)’ premiered today in Thai theaters and the reception by viewers have not been positive. They love Nadech but not so much his leading actress Richey Omrawadee–her acting was described as non-existed. ‘We shouldn’t call that acting, we should call that just standing there,’ wrote a Thai netizen about Richey’s acting. She barely had lines, she was described as ‘abnormal’, she seemed immature more like a 10 year old girl than a young woman who attends a university.
‘The best part was when it ended,’ wrote a Thai netizen at Pantip.
‘Lower your expectations,’ several advised so that you won’t be disappointed if the film is terrible.
One funny review by a Thai netizen about the film:
‘Khu Kam, I went to watch it, it was very painful.
I wanted it to end quickly. As I watched it, I thought repeatedly, should I walk out?
Like they brought in Abnormal people, everyone in nang’ek’s family from her mother, dad, grandmother, the nang’ek, nang’ek ex-boyfriend, they were all ab ab (meaning abnormal).
Speaking of which nong Jeeja who played an abnormal person in the film ‘Chocolate’ did better than this.
You have to blame the director, he shouldn’t have let it pass since the first scene.
As for Nadech, he is like a soccer player running around exhausted (carrying the team) because his 10 teammates are playing like they are mentally handicapped.’
Some pitied Nadech for having his talents wasted on this film, he could have been more famous if this film did well, they said.
I chose a picture of Mario Maurer and Nadech Kugimiya in bed together for this post because currently their films are dueling it out in theaters and Mario Maurer’s horror-comedy ‘Pee Mak…Pra Khanong’ is dominating, by Friday it is predicted to reach it’s 200 million baht mark, which is quite a feat. According to a Thai netizen at Kapook, it is currently ranked as the second highest grossing Thai film of all time behind The Legend of Suriyothai.
