Most of the people did’nt like the movie Hna ma let shawt nay lay dawt because of no dialog in the movie except ‘ pea pyout’. Mostly can’t appreciate that kind of movie,but I like that movie and appreciate .

Architect UKMY must be too advanced for the period. I think he directed another movie called Ba Hman Ba Zan Akyaung which was appreciated a bit more by some audience.
