Singing in the streets in "Sell out"

The Malaysian comedy Sell out by Yeo Joon Han gets rave reviews in the New Straits Times and A Nutshell Review. The movie is about a TV arts show host who is ready to do anything to compete against a rival reality show. Her show becomes a success when someone dies on camera, and she starts to look for more dying people to interview. The way the reviewers talk about it you get the sense that director Yeo Joon Han is the next P. Ramlee: Not only did he deliver a comedy that seems to speak to contemporary Malaysian woes, he also wrote the screen play and the songs in the movie and he directed, edited and even scored the film! Wait, come to think about it, I guess P. Ramlee never edited a film….
