Trailer for Indonesian drama 'Catatan Harian Si Boy' [UPDATED]
Here is what I can tell you. In the late 80s and early 90s there were at least five Catatan Si Boy films. And from what I was able to gather from the loose electric lips of Google Translate that this 2011 version, Catatan Harian Si Boy, is not a remake of those films. Other than I don't trust a word out of its mouth. 

Yeah, we're slim on details here so we hope to have something for you down the road. But, the film comes highly touted from filmmakers and friends of ScreenAnarchy in Indonesia. So, you'll find the trailer after the break. 

And just like that we have more info from one of our friends in Indonesia...

Boy's ultimate girlfriend (he used to have many but this one is like the love of his life) is very sick 
in the hospital but she never lets go of Boy's diary in her hand. Doctors almost give up and tell her 
daughter to go and find the owner of the diary to at least to make her happy before she dies. In search 
for this mysterious Boy, she meets a troubled young man who then helps her try to find Boy. Troubles 
ensue as love triangle forms, thugs appear, and Boy may only turnout to be not the character that 
people have become familiar with.

And to confirm this film's background... In the 80's, 'Catatan Si Boy' (Boy's Diary) films, all 5 of them, were huge. They were actually very 
corny, about a boy named Boy who's good-looking, rich, fights, but never forgets to pray 5 times 
a day and records all his adventures in a diary. But the character has become one 
of the biggest icons in Indonesia surpassing former president Soeharto. Since then, Boy has become some 
sort of a legend.

Thank you mysterious stranger...

I'm recalling old memories here, this was started as a radio program. The program was retelling a story of a boy's life named Boy based on his diary, who's a popular boy any girls wants to date and any boys wants to be.

A smart, gentle & quite religious person who can treat girls including his sister very well, very loyal to his friends and also treat elder people with respects etc, like those charming triad guys on hongkong movies, but very rich and of course, no gangster problem. And he's a champion on every boy's game ie racing, drifting, boxing/fighting, etc. A perfect idol, heh.

Naturally, since it's very popular, they make it a movie and sequels were coming since they made quite a fortune.

Based on this trailer, this probably the next 'Boy' on the making while stilll pay tribute to the original one (relating to the old one using his diary). And at the end of the trailer you can see Onky Alexander (the guy next to chopper) and Btari Karlinda whose playing as Boy & his sister Ina on the original ones. Both are over 40 years old and may be it's just me, but they are looking hotter than those young actors :)
