“King of Mahjong” centres on the decade-long feud and eventual reunion of Wong Tin Ba (Mark Lee) and Ah Fatt (Chapman To), two top disciples of the legendary mahjong maestro, Master Ru(Eric Tsang).
20 years later, Wong Tin Ba, who is now a world-acclaimed mahjong champion and magnate, shows up in Ipoh to challenge Fatt to a final showdown – The World Mahjong Championship. Despite Wong’s insistence, Fatt declines to join the competition as he is determined and contented to lead the life of a commoner.
In order to force Fatt to turn up at showdown, Wong abducts Fatt’s wife, Ramona (Michelle Ye), and threatens her to be on his alliance. Fatt has no choice but to join the championship as Wong holds his wife hostage. On the mahjong table, Fatt and Wong compete as the finalists; Master Ru’s secret legendary mahjong move and the truth comes to light as the winner emerges...

King of Mahjong《麻雀王》Movie Trailer
Movie Review:This is definitely a great movie for the family to watch together during the Lunar New Year. Why I wanted to watch this movie, is mainly because of the veteran comedian, Chapman To who is greatly loved by our family members, of course, not forgetting our local King, Mark Lee. My initial thought that this is a purely gambling comedy movie. After watching, I realised that the movie has more depth than what I thought.
The movie tries to bring out the benefits of mMahjong games, not to promote gambling but promoting it as a healthy social activity. AsMahjong requires players to use attention, memory, planning and calculation skills, this serves as a great treatment for dementia. Even for senior citizens who are not suffering from dementia, mMahjong can help in improving one's cognitive development,. It helps to keep one's mind sharp by exercising it through the games, allowing one to react faster.
On the other hand, it also stressed that while playing mahjong can be entertaining, it can be disastrous should one get addictive and got into excessive gambling. In additional, it emphasizes that that one should learn to enjoy the process and not be obsessive with the idea of "winning". Sometimes, to lose is to win. What does it means to you when you win the whole world yet losing your loved ones?
What I loved best in the movie, is that majority of the dialogue is in Cantonese! Woo hoo, when is the last time we ever get to watch a movie that mainly in Cantonese in Singapore? Fret not should you do not understand Cantonese as there is subtitles in both English and Chinese that help you understand what's going on. The special appearance by veteran actor and actress - Lo Hoi Pang, Kingdom Yuen, Mimi Chu and Susan Shaw, though short, leaves an impression with their great natural acting skills.
King of Mahjong will be screening in Singapore from 19 February 2015 and in Malaysia from 26 February 2015.
《麻雀王》 將於 2015年2月19日於新加坡上映，2月26日於馬來西亞上映！
