Kaiju films (such as Godzilla) were not always from Japan; South Korea had a similar kaiju film in 1967 called Yonggary, which was remade in 1999, released in the United States also under the title Reptilian. However, I was thinking to myself one time, "Should there be a Burmese kaiju film?"

Myanmar (Burma) had a film industry that had been going around since the mid-to-late 1910's, and had been flourishing since 1920. So far, there were no Burmese science fiction films of the kaiju category. Burmese culture even included a flourishing punk rock scene.

Burmese kaiju should have characters that would be based off of monsters in Burmese mythology. A prime example of this would be Chinthe. Chinthe was a monster from Burmese mythology who had been abandoned by his human princess wife (bestiality), and for this reason, it went on a rampage throughout the Burmese country. Chinthe was a leogryph (lion-like creature), and had appeared on some banknotes of the kyat (the Burmese dollar), printed by the Central Bank of Myanmar.

In my opinion, if there was a kaiju film called Chinthe (Burmese title Hekrang Se), than it would have high amounts of CGI, special effects, and really good acting, with some traditional Burmese folk music as a basis of its soundtrack. It would have a world record of being the first ever Burmese kaiju film in the history of Burmese cinema.
