Set in an unruly town known as Bhu Prakal (Death’s Mountain), the townsfolk regressed to the dark primitive ages after World War II, where survival of the fittest-in the forms of money, power and guns- takes precedence over friendship, law and common values.
The story began in the mountains of Fahrung Farm where a deep friendship went bad: Shakta and Bhupha. Thirsting for the ownership of Fahrung Farm, where hidden gems are abundant, Shakta contrived a plan to murder his partner Bhupha and seize the land. He hired Charan (Johnny Anfone) to fake the raid, but his plan turned extreme as Charan and his vicious outlaws massacred the entire farm, including Bhupha’s family.
BhuTawan (Mahk Prin) the son of Bhupha, escaped the deadly massacre by the help of Sarochna (Tao Somchai), his father’s best friend. Losing his parents and unborn sister, BhuTawan seeks refuge with Sarochna in a far away land, deeming to forget his home, childhood best friend Bejrrung (Yaya Urassaya), and everything else about the hell on earth, known as Bhu Prakal.
Raised by a former military sergeant, Sarochna, BhuTawan became adept in combats and fighting. As he matured into adulthood, the truth of his past crept back to him and drove him to avenge his family’s death: as he said, “I have two choices left, hunt them down or let them hunt me for the rest of my life.” His choice propelled the story forward, as he returned to Bhu Prakal after ten years and set forth to kill Shakta and Charan.
Unfortunately, Shakta has fled the town and Charan became the most influential person there, thus forcing BhuTawan to tread carefully and bide his time. With the rumors of hidden gems in Fahrung Farm and declining guards, BhuTawan disguised himself as Mr. Sueah (Tiger), and applied to be a guard at Fahrung Farm, as a means to find Shakta and to formulate a plan to kill Charan. His lofty goals met conflicts along the way as he learned that revenge wasn’t so black and white, especially when he discovered that the person running Fahrung Farm is his childhood friend Bejrrung and his long lost biological sister Phloikhwan (Mint Chalida). The motives and people he thought were his enemies immediately became blurry.
How will BhuTawan achieve his ambitions? Can he overcome his own feelings about his boss, young Lady Bejrrung when his vendetta is at stake?
Watch Tawan Duead (The Boiling Sun) to find out how the stimulating action drama unfolds.
Theme and Point of the Lakorn:
Revenge, love, survival of the fittest came to mind in the beginning of this lakorn. Yet as the lakorn progressed, there is also law and justice that came to play, but aren’t necessarily synonymous to each other. We have strong motives, grey characters and so much subplots and mystery that will keep you entertained until the very end.
Key Players and Character Breakdown:
You won’t find any cardboard box villains in this lakorn, much less characters. One thing is clear, each character is so well loved by the director, producer and writer, because no matter good or bad, each character is written with purpose, motive and love. I find myself falling for them and rooting for them.
There were a lot of things done well in this lakorn: rich cast, sharp and witty dialog, ever changing subplots, action and sizzling western romance. I didn’t expect to love it this much fearing that a western type drama may induce little romance, but this is certainly an exception.
Being the person who watches lakorns for the romance aspect, I was glad for the two love stories: the leading couple, BhuTawan and Bejrrung, and secondary couple Mr. Singha and Phloikhwan.
Unlike a lot of fans who seem to steer towards the second leading character’s romance, Mr. Sueah and young lady Bejrrung won my heart over. They dominated my attention with their love restraints, strong and mature personalities and onscreen chemistry. Mahk and Yaya is an item to be reckoned with! However, I did have a qualm about when his identity was revealed (to Bejrrung) perhaps I expected more of a reaction or fireworks. They made it up nicely with the reconciliation afterward.
Mr. Singha and Phloikhwan’s love story is innocent, fun and a joy to watch. When they come on screen, I always thought they had all of the fun! It’s easy to see why they are an appealing couple.
And finally, along with BhuTawan, this valuable lesson drove home with the audience; “the most powerful thing in this world is love or vendetta for they can push people into doing anything. Once my heart was overwhelmed with those feelings, until someone was gone, that’s when everything ended. “
Watch Tawan Deard to find out how the revenge, justice and love stories are panned out.
