So, what happened to Cinta? Maybe, question must have not been aimed to Cinta, otherwise audience should ask the question to Rangga.
Rangga (Nicholas Saputra) is trapped in his own guilt, for he left Cinta (Dian Sastrowardoyo). Yes, Mira Lesmana and Riri Riza must have made that happen to this poet. That was an effort to take to give birth “Ada Apa Dengan Cinta 2” (“AADC 2). As Cinta said “Yang Kamu lakukan pada Saya itu jahat” (What you did to me was mean), Mira Lesmana and Prima Rusdi put all the burdens to Rangga’s shoulders. Then, Poetry by Aan Mansyur were constantly delivered to tell Rangga’s feeling.
The necessity to see his own mother has taken Rangga from New York to Jakarta, then to Yogyakarta. In Indonesia, Rangga had his own mission to apologize to his ex-girlfriend, Cinta.
Generally, the conflict based on Rangga’s problem with his mother and Cinta. But the compliment should be given to the story line. AADC 2 did not try so hard to build the conflict (except, the existence of Rangga’s stepsister). Even the story feels a bit too simple but it goes naturally, like a group of people having a reunion. Somehow they find out that there is still something wrong about the past. The story was constructed so orderly it can be consumed rationally.
But, the story was not all about Rangga’s guilt. It is also about Cinta’s “gang” slash friend circle. The list of gang group member: Sissy Priscillia, Titi Kamal, Adinia Wirasti, Dennis Adhiswara, minus Ladya Cheryl (whose character passed away due to accident). AADC 2 comes with additional character like, Ario Bayu (as Cinta’s fiancé) and Christian Sugiono (as Titi Kamal’s Husband). It’s fun for sure to see gang is back in one frame.
Good performance by Sissy Priscila that cheers up the atmosphere and burst laughter among audience. To see Cinta’s gang reunion is like having the memories taken to the first AADC. AADC2 does not show the “high school never ends” energy like AADC 1 as each of en ucuz tadalafil character getting older. But, Cinta’s gang reunion could make the audience feel the warmth.
The warmth of the film was not only shown by the gang. Panoramas of
Yogyakarta and New York were served well in examples of the warmth tones in Rangga’s coffee shop or Yogyakarta’s sunshine. AADC 2 gently paints Rangga’s loneliness with gloomy and snowy atmosphere of New York, contrast with Cinta and the gang’s cheerful vacation beneath the sunshine in Yogyakarta.
Another good point, it’s worth being curious about AADC 2 that presents a good Bahasa Indonesia dialogue, especially dialogues between Rangga and Cinta. Even they converse a bit too formal (Cinta uses the word “saya” to call herself while having conversation with Rangga), for two people used to have a special relationship. Two thumbs up for the scriptwriter who vigorously try to present “Bahasa Indonesia yang Baik dan Benar” in Indonesia’s modern film.
So, AADC 2 was worth waiting for. Overall, AADC2 is kind of movie that might get your lips smile, or might get you “baper”.
So Rangga, were you baper?
