After shattering box office records in Vietnam, ‘Bo Gia’ (Old Father) is set to hit screens in Singapore and Malaysia on April 22.

It will also be shown on international flights and cruise ships, and its producer is currently in talks to screen the film in Thailand.

It tells the story of Sang, an old motorbike-taxi driver who lives in a low-income neighborhood in downtown Saigon and struggles to earn enough to take care of his family.

‘Bo Gia’ raked in VND400 billion ($17.4 million) after premiering on March 5, the highest-grossing Vietnamese movie ever. It is still in theaters.

The movie achieved a number of milestones along the way. It became the fastest to collect VND100 billion and VND200 billion.

The film adaptation of a hit web drama directed by Vu Ngoc Dang stars comedian and TV host Tran Thanh.

The web version, released on YouTube in early 2020, was the most viewed in Vietnam with its five episodes garnering more than 90 million hits.
