"How to Make Millions Before Grandma Dies" (Lahn Mah) is a 2024 Thai drama film directed by Pat Boonnitipat, starring Usha Seamkhum and Putthipong Assaratanakul. This heartwarming tearjerker takes viewers on an emotional journey, skillfully paced and directed to create a profound impact. Seamkhum and Assaratanakul deliver impeccable performances, capturing the essence of their characters' relationship.


The film's strength lies in its ability to resonate with audiences on a personal level. It prompts reflection on our own lives and the relationships we hold dear. The exploration of the bond between a grandparent and grandchild is relatable and poignant, evoking a range of emotions.


Boonnitipat's direction ensures that each scene unfolds naturally, enhancing the emotional impact. Seamkhum portrays a grandmother at the end of her life with both strength and vulnerability, while Assaratanakul brings youthful energy and innocence to his role as the grandchild. Their on-screen chemistry is palpable, making their relationship feel genuine and heartfelt.


"How to Make Millions Before Grandma Dies" is a testament to the power of storytelling, capable of eliciting a wide range of emotions. While it occasionally suffers from uneven pacing and missed opportunities for further character exploration, these minor flaws do not significantly detract from the overall experience.


In conclusion, this beautifully crafted film touches the heart and soul. Seamkhum and Assaratanakul's performances, combined with Boonnitipat's direction, create a memorable cinematic experience. Prepare to shed tears and embrace the power of love, family, and life's transitions. I wholeheartedly recommend this film.
