Beautynesia has interviewed Indro Warkop to summarize interesting facts about Warkop DKI. For you Warkopers or those who just want to get to know these comedy films which are never boring to watch, check out the following review, Beauties!
1. Dono is actually smart

Even though in the film Dono is always the victim of disaster or Indro’s or Kasino’s pranks, and is easily fooled, in real life Dono is a Warkop member who is intelligent and highly intellectual, you know, Beauties.
The proof is that he was once a lecturer in the Sociology department, FISIP, University of Indonesia. Among students and co-workers, Dono is considered a killer lecturer, in contrast to his character who is far from the fierce character in the film.
Apart from that, Dono is also an excellent journalist. He knows how to elegantly criticize the social and moral aspects of political actors, so it is not surprising that he often fills the political column in newspapers. Dono is also the author of four novels, namely Cemara-Cemara Kampus, Two Batang Weeds, If the Security Guard Makes Love, and Senggol Kiri Senggol Kanan.
2. Casino Jago Keroncong

This Warkop member, who is famous for his chatter and outspoken style of speaking, once won the Banyumas Residency keroncong competition, you know, Beauties. There is no doubt about his interest in keroncong. Because he was about to leave forever, he really wanted to sing keroncong, so Indro brought in keroncong musicians to entertain him.
3. Indro’s hobby is collecting sharp weapons

Apart from his hobby of motorbikes, Indro also enjoys shooting sports and collects various sharp weapons from various regions in Indonesia, Beauties. However, in the 1990s he no longer carried out his hobby of shooting because many people told him not to shoot anymore in order to get a son. Sure enough, after quitting his hobby of shooting, Indro also had a youngest son.
4. Dono-Casino Have Been Silent for 3 Years

Like friendships and human relationships in general, there are bound to be moments of quarrel or discomfort between each other. The same thing happened to the late Dono and Kasino, Beauties. The two of them never spoke to each other because of clashing characteristics.
In a podcast, Indro said that their argument had been going on since 1988-1990. This means that they kept quiet about each other around the era of the films Jodoh Boleh Arranged (1988), Malu-malu Mau (1988), Godain Kita Dong (1989), Sabar Dulu Dong (1989), and Mana Can Hold (1990).
Amazingly, Warkop was able to maintain professionalism during these critical times. What’s also interesting is that according to Indro’s account (in the midst of the conflict), Kasino always got very angry when someone spoke ill of Dono in front of him. Also, when the Casino started to get sick, Dono was the number one person who was busiest looking after it.
The lesson that can be taken from this is that even though conflict was inevitable, they never thought about leaving Warkop or disbanding. Because, for the three of them, Warkop DKI is a gift that must be grateful for.
5. Hangout place for Warkop personnel

Dono, Kasino, and Indro often hang out together at the Ancol Art Market to discuss work and chat casually. The usual place to hang out to enjoy time together is Warung Sroto Sokaraja.
6. The film Warkop was inspired by the completeness of Indian films

Warkop has its own way of having lots of fans and keeping them so they don’t get bored of watching Warkop films or turn away from this comedy group. Namely by saving popularity.
This is done by only accepting offers of two films per year in order to ensure that Warkop personnel don’t get bored of meeting and acting with each other, and the audience doesn’t get bored of watching Warkop.
8. Iconic Accent and ‘Ridiculousness’

For those of us who like Warkop, the accent or way of speaking of Dono, Kasino, and Indro, each of which has its own characteristics, will remain stuck in our minds to the point that we can remember and imitate it when chatting with our family and friends.
Apart from that, there is also ‘silliness’ which contains the cuteness and iconicity of Warkop’s movements or scenes. For example, when we turn back and forth because we forget what to take, or repeat the same movement, we immediately blurt out saying “Kayak Warkop” or “Kayak Dono”.
Do you often experience things like this, Beauties?

Meanwhile, Indro Warkop’s most favorite film is Mana Tahan. The reason was, it was the first film he starred in and he only did one take in each scene.
Fun fact, in addition to his 34 famous films that are still being shown today, there are two semi-documentary films that Warkop starred in and chained, namely the Guruh Soekarnoputra show. The film is entitled For You My Indonesia.
