Movie: 72 Tenants of Properity (72家祖客)

Can't wait to watch this after CNY... so yesterday night after work went 1U to watch it already..!!!
a CNY movie of over 180 artists!!... how can you not watch it? hahaa

This movie 72家租客 is origin from the oldies movie - 七十二家房客 over 30 years ago..

The story is about the tenants of the happenning street of Mongkok in HK. Rushing of time.. Found a detailed synopsis from wiki,

In 1970s Hong Kong, rapacious landlords try to evict 72 tenants but sworn brothers Ha Kung (Eric Tsang) and Shek Kin (Jacky Cheung) help the group of 72 defeat the landlord (Lam Ka Tung) and landlady (Charmaine Sheh) and coincidentally rescue Pinky (Anita Yuen) from a planned forced marriage. When both sworn brothers fall for Pinky and propose to her, she flips a coin heads or tails and Ha wins her hand in marriage.

The sworn brothers become sworn enemies and Sheks hatred fuels intense rivalry against Ha in business dealings ranging from the manufacture of plastic flowers to the selling of stinky bean curd. Even after 40 years they continue to clash and in 2010 they are in keen competition selling electronics appliances in Sai Yeung Choi Street, Mongkok, the busiest street in the city and still home to the 72 tenants. [Full synopsis]

my ratings: 9/10
