Time Out says

Those looking to indulge their cinematic sweet-tooth can't go far wrong with 'Mukhsin', a gorgeous paean to young love from Malaysian director Yasmin Ahmad which focuses on perpetually bullied 12-year-old Mukhsin (Naswip) who, during a school holiday, forges a bond with the brassy, self-confident Orked (Aryana). Ahmed shows great skill in painting a colourful, rich and believable family life for the pair, as well as portraying their burgeoning relationship with great tenderness and fragility. It's also, at times, very funny, due mainly to an inordinate amount of slapstick which usually results in some kind of head injury: you have been warned.
