Review Menjadi Bintang

Written by Hidayat (

Kampung Kemboja faces a problem. Most of the youth are obsessed with sabong ayam/ cockfight. Its a worrying phenomena for the elders. They have tried many ways to curb the problem. However the cruel cold-blooded gambling activity still going on.

The police failed to stop the cockfight from going on- the activity maybe paused for a week or two after a raid but soon after that it started again, the village Imam Haji Salleh even chased away with parang but the next day they were back to business again.

Menjadi Bintang maybe told a story happened in a small village of nowhere. But in reality it happens in most village nowadays. Sad to say, the idea of tranquility, peaceful, 'kekitaan' value no longer can be applied automatically to the word Kampung and for some - the problem are worser and more serious- drug, rape, sexual abuse all evil that you can read in everyday newspaper etc etc.

'Menjadi Bintang' story build on Amir character. Amir is a different young man from the most of Kampung Kemboja. Like a star which brighten the night, Amir is the one who to change the wrong direction of his village heading on.

While most of the young man in Kampung. Kemboja obsessed in cockfight, Amir reared chickens for good. Its a reflection of an amanah from god- while others abused and betrayed the amanah given, Amir carried it responsibly.

In connotation of the idiom 'idle man is a devil workshop', what differentiate Amir and most of the Kemboja's young man was a clear goal and vision. It is important to keep our self busy with good things, or we will end up hooked with useless or god forbid- sinful activities, knowingly or unknowingly.

Menjadi Bintang reminded me -Almar'u dinil kholil'- a person is likely what he friends of. A good friend is like a perfume seller the prophet said (au kama qol). The perfume-seller might give you some perfume as a gift, or you might buy some from him, or at least you might smell its fragrance.

Or in 'Menjadi Bintang'- like a star that shines you.
