SYNOPSIS

Demi menjadi jurnalis sukses, Pras, pemuda Jombang, merantau ke Jakarta untuk belajar dari Djarwo, pimpinan redaksi majalah berita. Idealismenya ternodai ketika menyadari bahwa majalah tersebut memanfaatkan kemampuan menulisnya yang brilian hanya untuk menulis artikel bohong.

Tanpa disadari, Pras berada di tengah pusat kehidupan malam Jakarta. Semakin dalam menggali, semakin dalam dia masuk. Pras ingin mengubah hidup dan kariernya menjadi lebih signifikan. Dengan informasi menarik yang dimilikinya, Pras meyakinkan Djarwo untuk membantu mewujudkan ide-idenya.

Akankah Pras berhasil mewujudkan mimpinya, di kota yang selalu mengubah manusia jadi lebih buruk? Siapa yang bertopeng dan siapa yang mengkhianati? Apakah wajah yang terlihat itu wajah yang sesungguhnya?

 

Pursuing his dreams of becoming a successful journalist, Pras, a young man from Jombang, went to Jakarta to learn from Djarwo, an editor-in-chief of a news magazine. His idealism is tainted when realizing that the magazine takes advantage of his brilliant writing skills to write scam articles.

Unawarely, Pras finds himself at the center of Jakarta’s nightlife scene. The deeper he digs in, the deeper he gets sucked into it. Pras wants to change his life and career into something more significant. With interesting information in his hands, Pras convinces Djarwo to help bringing his ideas to life.

Will Pras succeed in the pursuit of his dreams, in the city that constantly changes people for the worse? Who wears their masks and who betrays whom? Are the faces he sees the real ones?

BLOGGERS REVIEW

DANIEL IRAWAN (Daniel Dokter)

Could raise more stakes, Moammar Emka’s Jakarta Undercover is good for being what it wanted to be. Wildly seducing with some seriously notable performance. Rating: ★★★1/2

RASYID HARRY (Movfreak)

Dumb yet fun and playful entertainment. Apabila anda tidak mampu (atau ingin) menjadikan seks selaku bahan observasi mendalam, menjadikannya hiburan ringan merupakan keputusan tepat. Rating: ★★★

REINO EZRA ANRETI (Ajirenji Mindstream Reviews)

NA. Rating: ★★★

TAUFIQUR RIZAL (CineTariz)

NA. Rating: ★★★

VINCENT JOSE (The Jose Movie Review)

Moammar Emka’s Jakarta Undercover might’ve been cliché and explored only in the surface, but was still a fun and reflective ride. Moammar Emka’s Jakarta Undercover surely was such an acting showcase for Oka Antara, Baim Wong, Ganindra Bimo, Agus Kuncoro Adi and even breakthrough performance from Tiara Eve. Rating: ★★★1/2
