‘Assalamualaikum, Beijing!’, is another film by Guntur Soeharjanto after ’99 Cahaya di Langit Eropa’.

The film is, produced by Maxima Pictures, based on the best seller novel with the similar title written by productive and popular young Muslimah author Asma Nadia.


Assalamualaikum Beijing! is about a woman named Ra/Asma (Revalina S Temat) who betrayed her lover, Dewa (Ibn Jamil), a month before the wedding. Dewa chooses to marry Anita but only until their baby is born. He plans to divorce for the sake of returning to Ra.

On the other hand, Asma meets Chinese youth named Zhongwen (Morgan Oey) while covering in Beijing. Zhongwen depicted as a young man with a firm jaw and intelligent eyes that glow softly. Beads of love grew between them.

Assalamualaikum Beijing tells a love story that is not cliché, Insha Allah. Also how a convert to proceed,” Asma Nadia, the novelist said.

Starred by Revalina S Temat, Morgan Oey, Ibnu Jamil and Lidya Cynthia Bella, it would be released on 30 December 2014.

Some scenes of the film were taken at the Chinese popular tourist sites like the Great Wall, the Forbidden City in Beijing and Ashima sclupture in Yunnan.
