NOW, who can ever forget the good old rollicking days of the 60’s?
‘Tis the era of the AGO GO dance craze.
Notwithstanding the ROCK-n-ROLL rage.
Combining the 2 elements and what do we get?
GO GO, ROCK!!!
IT’s this beat-it-and-groove-it all around the Clock dance.
Just clap your hands and stomp your feet …..
MOVE to the rhythm,
DANCE to the beat ……
LET’S ROCK THE BOAT, babe!
GO GO, ROCK! the MOVIE MUSICAL (alternative name GO GO RHAPSODY) is here.
RIGHT in the heart of ASIA.
GO GO, ROCK! is a satirical musical comedy showcasing the funny, yet lovable character of TOM, a small town guy with big town dreams.
He journeys through the music of the 60’s, as the American Pop Revolution bring a hip change to his old rickety town.
This reminds us of how the American Pop Culture has influenced the Thai lifestyle, fashion and music, taking us higher into a modern, more liberating ground in the 60’s.
The ironically funny and romantic love affair of TOM and BEE becomes the center of the narrative, whilst the music and dancing become the background setting that inspires us in the love mood.
The story spans 10 years, from being starry-eyed kids to young striplings for 4 bosom buddies with a common vision that BANGKOK, as the song goes “somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue”.
When BEE the village belle is kidnapped by a dashing unrequited suitor, the 4 friends rally together to embark on a musical journey of self-discovery to the dazzling city of BANGKOK where dreams can actually be bought and the glitter is not as bright as it seems.
If you relish eye candies – cool guys, sweet damsels, hit songs, dances, fun and laughter galore, then things will surely heat up for you in GO GO, ROCK!
A captivating collection of the 60’s Mandarin, Thai, Vietnamese and English music brings pure energy to the entire story.
Oddly funny, absurd, silly and fresh characters are introduced like Thai spices to the story. Encounter the magical presence of the modern day “witch” ACHARA; UDOM, KONG and NUTT as TOM’s hip-and-lovable chums; HANUMAN, the charming villian; HANUMAN’s mom CHABA, a nasty socialite who has a penchant for young male strippers; CHIC TRACY, the guileful pet detective; PRIDA, Tom’s ignorant sister; WISMITA, Tom’s chivying mother; KHUN CHATCHAI, Tom’s jovial father and all these amusing characters you’ll love to meet as you track the story down from slapstick scenes to witty ones.
If you fall in love with “GREASE’ or the contemporary “HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL”, then you’ll love this movie for it will lighten you up with its endearing characters, nostalgic and catchy songs and rock-and-roll dances of the 60s and really unforgettable scenes.
GO GO, ROCK! is one wholesome, commercial family entertainment with splendid cinematography.
It is a music-driven movie that touches all ages, the young and baby boomers who are young at heart.
It has a moral that conveys to us “to believe in ourselves and our dreams, and to seek our own happiness”.
So clap your hands,
Stomp your feet.
Move to the rhythm …..
And dance to the beat!
IT’S WAY TO GO …..AGO GO!
