Which movie is your pick?

With Hari Raya Aidilfitri just around the corner, everyone is busy preparing for it and has no time to catch a movie or two.

After a whole day of fasting, Ramadhan bazaars are more the hot spots rather than movie theatres. Also, everyone will be busy cooking sumptuous delicacies to open fast with and afterwards, going to the mosques for prayers.

However, come Raya day, everyone flocks the cinemas to see the season's latest offerings. So in the spirit of Raya movie-watching, we list down several movies that can be enjoyed by everyone with friends and loved ones this Raya.

Suamiku Jatuh Dari Langit

Start your Raya celebration with a romantic comedy starring Nora Danish and Qi Razali. Nora plays a "kampung girl" named Asyikin, who is the daughter of the strict village chief. Qi plays Awie, one half of the village's troublesome duo. One day, while trying to sneak into the village chief's house to steal money, he accidentally falls off the roof, landing right in front of Asyikin. Thus begin their romantic and comedy-filled love story.
