RM3 mil for "Bohsia 2" in 4 days


Bohsia 2 has turned into a huge success within four days.

13 June – "Jalan Kembali: Bohsia 2" has managed to prove to local moviegoers the merit of locals films as it managed to gross about RM3 million within four days of its release.

For the past six months this year, local films have lacked the rave responses from moviegoers that were given to Hollywood films, and suffice to say, no local film has managed to make more than RM1 million within a day. Justifications have been made that screening two local movies in a week only served to weaken individual box office collections for either films.

However, the RM3 million grossing of "Jalan Kembali: Bohsia 2" showed that screening two films within a week is not the main reason that a local film failed to collect the desired box office grosses. Filmmakers just need to have the strength and relevance of story and casting that director Syamsul Yusof brought into his film together with his father, Datuk Yusof Haslam.

"I gave Syamsul the freedom to proceed with his action film however he liked that he thought the audience would like. This was because this film is about the reflection of reality and as a youth, Syamsul shares the same view with his target audience and knows what they seek for in a film."

He added, "I believe that a film will definitely become successful if it is catered to what the audience wants," said Datuk Yusof Haslam, who then estimated that "Jalan Kembali: Bohsia 2" would have made a bigger collection in the box office had there not been Euro 12 football tournament happening last weekend.

According to FINAS Data Industry, "Jalan Kembali: Bohsia 2" is the 29th local film that was released since January till early June this year. It is also the fifth film directed by Syamsul Yusof, after "Evolusi KL" in 2008, "Bohsia: Jangan Pilih Jalan Hitam" in 2009, "Evolusi KL Drift" and "Khurafat" in 2010, and "KL Gangster" and "Aku Bukan Tomboy" in 2011.
