With its newly-announced free service, there’s never been a better time to check out iflix’s offerings– especially as the local entertainment streaming service is set to serve up their own line of original productions with a uniquely Malaysian touch.
One of the iflix Originals that stands out is KL Gangster: Underworld, a premium Malaysian drama that’s worth watching out for. The drama is also iflix’s biggest production to date, in their hopes to change the landscape of Malaysian entertainment.
As a spinoff the iconic KL Gangster 1 and 2 films, KL Gangster: Underworld is helmed by directors Syafiq Yusof (Abang Long Fadil 1 and 2) and Faisal Ishak (Juvana) and producers Datuk Yusof Haslam and Syamin Yusof.
“It is our aim to offer iflix viewers a new breed of local drama whilst pushing creative boundaries through our Originals.” said iflix Global Director of Original Programming, Mark Francis. “The KL Gangster films set-up the perfect foundation for the series to launch from, with fresh twists and surprises for both fans and newcomers alike… expect to see edgier, grittier action sequences, more realistic true crime themes such as human trafficking, and of course, more larger-than life characters!”
The drama stars Beto Kusyairy as Shah, the heir and protege of the KL Gangsters group who’s looking for a way out of the underworld. Along the way, Shah falls in love with a girl (Ezzaty Abdullah) from a rival gang and alsodiscovers a plot that will potentially change the fate of the KL Gangsters.
