Dono, Kasino, and Indro are back in action. Now, they join a private institution called CHIPS. Even though they are passionate about serving the community, they also continue to cause problems because of their silly and funny acti…

Warkop DKI Reborn is the 7th film from director Anggy Umbara whom we have previously known through commercially successful comedy films such as Mama Cake and Comic 8. This time, Anggy’s attempt to revive the legendary Indonesian comedy group, Warkop DKI, so far it was also an extraordinary success, only a week had  3 million viewers breaking the new AADC 2 last record.

Warkop DKI Reborn: Jangkrik Boss Part 1 began their silly adventure with 3 CHIPS members, namely Dono (Abimana Aryasatya), Casino (Vino G. Bastian), and Indro (Tora Sudiro), who was given the task to overcome such problems in Jakarta. Together with Sophie (Hannah Al Rashid), they work hand in hand to complete the job. Instead of fixing the problem, the three CHIPS members added. From there, finally, their funny story developed.

Like the original Warkop DKI films, this film also uses the same formula in presenting its comedy. As in the opening that shows the silliness of the three main characters, then the music and songs used are also the same. Also, hilarious phrases from the original version will be seen throughout the film. “Maju Kena Mundur Kena”, “Jangkrik Bos”, and others. The scenes are as if designed to allow these sentences to appear. This formula was quite successful, even though several times also felt a little forced. For example, when Kasino sings feels a bit forced because no situation requires him to sing the song. The only new one may be the material for jokes that are more on the issues and social criticism that exists today. The content chosen is good enough to blend into these Warkop characters.

Talking about this film can not be separated from the cast of Warkop himself. Although it cannot be compared with the original version, the appearance of the Warkop Reborn is quite natural in playing the characters of Dono, Kasino, Indro while still maintaining their respective characteristics, both physical to accent and speaking style. Especially Vino G. Bastian as Kasino appears more dominant than the other two figures.

The success of this film is determined by the big-name of Warkop itself. As a whole, there is probably nothing new in terms of artistic achievements or stories other than more modern visual effects. The presence of 

Warkop Reborn might not be able to replace the original Warkop film for his fans, but at least this could be fan pleaser, an iconic comedy group with a strong character in this country. From the commercial success of this film, it is considered a brilliant reboot. Along with the commercial success of this film, later comedy films may emerge reborn comedy groups that have triumphed in the past will adorn the country’s cinema screens.
