“How to Make Millions Before Grandma Dies”: The Tear-Jerking Thai Film

A Thai film titled *How to Make Millions Before Grandma Dies* has captivated audiences across South East Asia since its release in April. The movie, which follows a young man named M caring for his dying grandmother while vying for her fortune, has resonated deeply with viewers, particularly on TikTok, where emotional responses have gone viral.

The story revolves around M, who initially plans to win his grandmother’s inheritance but begins to question his motives as he grows closer to her. The film’s emotional impact is evident in the tearful reactions of viewers, many of whom have shared videos of themselves before and after watching the film.

The movie’s touching portrayal of family relationships, particularly between M and his grandmother, has struck a chord with audiences. Scenes depicting the grandmother in pain and calling out for her late parents have left many viewers in tears.

Director Pat Boonnitipat, in his first feature film, expressed surprise at the overwhelming response, attributing the movie’s appeal to its ability to tap into the complexities of family dynamics. Part-dark comedy and part-tear-jerker, the film portrays a dysfunctional family using the grandmother’s illness to scheme for her fortune.

Despite the unlikable nature of most characters, including M, the grandmother’s portrayal by Usha Seamkhum has received widespread acclaim. Critics have praised Seamkhum as “absolutely sensational” and the “figurehead of this morally questionable rabble.”

The film’s success at the box office has been remarkable, with ticket sales in Thailand surpassing 250 million baht ($6.9 million) in the first 14 days of release. It has become the 11th highest-grossing Thai film and the most successful Asian movie in Indonesia, as well as the highest-grossing Thai film in Singapore and Malaysia.

*How to Make Millions Before Grandma Dies* serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of family and the complexities of relationships, leaving audiences deeply moved and reaching for tissues.
