Ateng Minta Kawin (1974)

A crowd of love stories feature in this film between Ateng and Vivi Sumanti, Eddy Sud and Titiek Puspa, and Iskak with Enny Kusrini. Titiek, a widowed “dangdut” singer, has adoptive children, Ateng and his older sibling, Enny. Meanwhile Eddy Sud, a widower whose collection is 90 per cent “dangdut” songs, has a daughter, Vivi, and a servant, Iskak. Their parents don’t’ approve of the romance between Ateng and Vivi, so they keep their relationship a secret, just like Enny with Iskak. When Eddy and Titiek finally make peace, all couples marry simultaneously. A comedy in Srimulat’s style (a group of comedians who started in Surabaya, East Java, in the 1950s with their anti-logical humour characteristics), but in Nya Abbas Akup’s personal directing touch, the jokes become smart.
