the film "mon rak luk thung" is considered a landmark of both thai cinema & thai popular music; its unprecedented 6 month run in bangkok upon release in 1970 (พ.ศ. 2513) represented an increasing fondness for pleng luk thung in the capitol. the story is set in a rural village and concerns the romance between a poor farmer and the daughter of a rich landowner (played by mit chaibancha & phetchara chaowarat). taking a cue from hindi films, the action is interspersed with musical numbers, many of which feature the original singers picturising their own tunes. and the tunes are in top form! featuring the work of famed songwriter ไพบูลย์ บุตรขัน (phaibun butkhan) & his team, many of these songs are pop standards, with dozens of recorded versions. the film itself also has a number of iterations, most notably as the basis of a tv serial drama (ละคร or 'lakhon') of the same name. please enjoy these unforgettable songs!

What a great soundtrack!

Now I can understand why this movie was so popular.

The visuals and story are nothing special from what I can tell from the very poor quality DVD of Monrak Luk Thung that is circulating -- typical star-crossed romance of a poor boy falling in love with a girl from a rich family.

But it was the songs that had audiences flocking to see the film. Hard to imagine a movie today making people so passionate.
