The film Dilan 1991 is adapted from popular the novel by Pidi Baiq with the title Part Two: Dilan, He Is My Dilemma 1991, the movie follows a romantic, juvenile story that may or may not be entirely original, and by original we mean that it is not exempt of the cliches that we're used to seeing in this genre, but this might not always translate into the movie being bad itself, however, that's really on your personal taste and likes, we're gonna tell you a bit the plot and what's going on here, so that, combined with watching it you can get o your conclusions.
This film is a continuation of the 1990 film Dilan which successfully amazed more than 6 million cinema viewers and became the second best-selling film of all time in Indonesia after Warkop DKI Reborn which aired in 2016.
To appear in this film again, Vanesha Prescilla who played the role of Milea had to do a hair extension to restore Milea's original image to herself, since she's changed her image since she played the character last.
In addition, Iqbaal Ramadhan who played the character Dilan also had to lose weight by 12 kilograms, so the film producers had to do their best to adapt both the character to the actor and the actor to its character in equal parts.
In this second sequel, Pidi Baiq as director and writer invites Maudy Koesnaedi to join as part of the Dilan 1991 film. Fajar Bustomi, who is the director of this film, claimed to have received threats from readers of novels related to the character of Mas Herdi in this film.
Right on the day of the film's screening across the country, a number of students in Makassar held a demonstration at the Makassar City Education Office.
This demonstration was held because the film was considered not to glorify teachers, but well, you might say that good movies always find a way to invade each individual's mind differently, many people can give different interpretations to many different topics, and Dilan 1991 didn't leave without a little sip of drama and controversy, whether or not this helped the movie giving it more visibility, that's yet to be determined, but it sure got more popular because of this drama.
The film also includes West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil who was then serving as Mayor of Bandung.
As you have already known if you've seen the last movie or know about the novel, Dilan has indeed become a warlord in his motorcycle gang.
One day he was beaten by a group of unknown people and made Milea worry and forbade him to join the motorcycle gang again, as it puts his life in terrible danger, so this is the beginning of a wave of trouble.
Later Dilan found out who was the person who ganged upon him.
He also planned revenge actions but unfortunately, when planning a strategy, Milea who was accompanied by his distant cousin, Yugo (Jerome Kurnia) came and gave an ultimatum to end the relationship.
Instead of being over, the problem became even murkier because Dilan was jealous of Yugo's figure. Milea also regretted what she did because she didn't want to break up because of the misunderstanding.
Dilan was detained by the police for an attack which resulted in his relationship with Milea becoming more tenuous.
But fortunately, the conflict can be overcome by the presence of Dilan's mother (Ira Wibowo). Their relationship which had improved apparently did not last long. Dilan was increasingly confused after one of his friends died as a result of being attacked by an unknown gang. Then which should he choose, Milea or his ego?
