Movie Review: Piring

James (Yussef Esteves) is a gym instructor by day and a student by night, who struggles to keep both ends meet.  Stands as the family bread winner, he is determined to make a difference in his troubled family.  He and his three siblings grew up without knowing who their father is, while their mother is a retired prostitute but still runs a whore house.  James works so hard to graduate.   

However, Mr. Salve, the school’s principal has set his eyes on him and is willing to do anything to get what he wants.  James refuses Mr. Salve’s offer to keep his pride and dignity.  Mr. Salve seeks revenge after getting rejected, he comes up with a plot to destroy James’ dreams.  Still, a sudden twist of faith will change everything – a scenario which will shatter James and his family.

Depressing, predictable and melodramatic. A dark chronicling of the sad state of poor family in rural areas that are victim of their own predicament. The film's melodramatic twists and turns make for diverting viewing, but few will leave the cinema feeling they've seen something original or affecting.

My Verdict: 2.5/5
