Badul disguises himself as a rich man from Sarawak and later marries Milah. After getting married, he uses tricks to deceive the rich by borrowing too much money. When he managed to get the money, he disappears.
Deconstructing the tenets of capitalism through the prism of a conman’s ambition, Si Badol acutely depicts the struggles of the working class in Kuala Lumpur. Starring the great A. R. Badul in his breakout role, this ’80s classic makes a sharp point about greed in an increasingly deceitful world.
