Mafia, Really [Mafia Insyaf] (2010) Indonesian Fighting Divas!
Mafia, Really [Mafia Insyaf] (2010) Indonesian Fighting Divas!

original Indonesian title MAFIA INSYAF
["Insyaf" is an Indonesian slang word that can mean anything from "Really" to "No Shit?"]

director: Otoy Witoyo
starring: Atiqah Hasiholan Tora Sudiro Indah Kalalo Ferry Ardiansyah Anindhika Jaja Mihardja

Here's something of a rarity in Indonesian films, FIGHTING DIVAS! Selma (played by Atiqah Hasiholan) is the Captain of an undercover police unit. One of her detectives, Bobby, constantly hits on her but she's smart enough to know fraternization isn't a good idea. Instead, she finds herself attracted to the mysteriously charismatic Kendra (Tora Sudiro). He pretends to be a social worker but - in reality - Kendra is a top boss in his family's Mafia gang. As the two begin dating seriously, she tells him that she's a cop but Kendra doesn't reveal his secret. Meanwhile, humiliated Officer Bobby discovers Kendra's true identity and arranges a trap with a competing gang run by dragon-lady Dewi (Indah Kallalo).

All that is melodramatic windowdressing. The real draw here are the kick-ass diva fights, reminiscent of the Hong Kong Angel heyday. The girl-action is handled well by the two leads, along with swordweilding Anindhika. The young woman who plays Captain Selma, Atiqah Hasiholan, has become a major actress probably best known for THE FORBIDDEN DOOR.
Her rival here, mob boss Dewi, is Indah Kalalo, recognizable for the leading role in VIRGIN HONEYMOON BLOOD.
