Do you know why Thailand is known as the Land of Smiles? Because literally everything from our neighbour up north makes us feel like we’re living on rainbows and that life is just a big fluffy cloud of cotton candy – the food, the people, the (wholesale) shopping, the exotic places and let’s not forget, the shows.
The latest person to make our legs wobble like gummy worms is Thai director Nattawut Poonpiriya and his hip film, “Bad Genius”, which took cheating on school exams to a whole new level. The thrilling caper about genius high school students who devise a test-cheating scheme has become the highest-grossing Thai film in Malaysia.
If you can’t get enough of “Bad Genius” and want to relive the sheer joy of watching the most entertaining Thai movies ever, check these out:
