I am so head over heels for this movie + its soundtrack (nidji had grabbed the honor to show off their music talents for this movie & yes... they did the hell rite thing!). i dun want to miss out putting the video clip at the bottom of this blog...hehe. Gosh, what a genius to have thought that everything would blend perfectly with the wittiest combinations ever. Citer mcm la penah tgk. kan… but nvr mind, let this preview tells ya!

“Laskar Pelangi, a best-selling Indonesian novel written by Andrea Hirata in 2005 now has been adapted to movie with the same title "Laskar Pelangi". Laskar Pelangi based on the writer's own experiences, about an inspiring teacher and her 10 students in the poverty-stricken Kampung Gantong in Belitong. They study in a poor Elementary school-SD Muhammadiyah-, which only have ten students, they are Laskar Pelangi. Each of them, has a special characteristic. For example, Lintang who is the smartest. He is really addicted with education. He likes to explore new things. Even, he must takes eighty kilometres vice versa a day to reach the school. Another figure is Mahar who has a talent in art. He has a beautiful imagination to create something. And also, the main figure of this Tetralogy, Ikal. The poor condition of their school building does not dampen their high spirits and hopes for a better future.Laskar Pelangi not also kind of literature buku, but also scientific reference. Even, this novel has been a reference to compose recommendation of education policy in Indonesia.”
