    Was Dara Dead or Alive?

    Sam was determined to get revenge because he met Mia and her daughter, Dara, in Thailand. Mia, who had been through a rough time after her French boyfriend left her, brought hope back into Sam’s life.

    They were planning to start a family together and open a restaurant. But their dream was shattered when they found out that the land they wanted to buy was sold to a local gangster named Narong.

    Desperate to get the land back, Sam agreed to do a job for Narong, which involved smuggling drugs into the airport. He thought he could handle it, but things went wrong, and he had to run for his life when the police and Narong’s men came after him.

    Despite escaping, Narong’s men still managed to break into Sam’s house, killing Mia and taking Dara.

    Sam’s Muay Thai master, Hansa, saved him from a fire set by Narong’s men, and he spent days helping Sam recover. Thinking Sam was dead, Narong had no idea that he would soon face a man hell-bent on seeking revenge for the loss of his loved ones.

    Did Sam Find His Daughter?

    Sombat warned Sam that Narong and Kasem were dangerous guys, but Sam was too angry about losing his family to care about the risk.

    Sam found out that Kasem often hung out at ladyboy clubs and was known for being rude. The ladyboys told Sam where Kasem lived, and he broke into his house during a party. Sam fought off all the security guards and confronted Kasem.

    Just when Sam was about to kill him, Kasem revealed that Sam’s daughter, Dara, was alive. Sam had believed she was dead, so this news gave him hope.

    Even after Kasem’s revelation, Sam still killed him. But it wasn’t just about revenge anymore; Sam needed to find his daughter before it was too late.

    Mayhem’s Ending

    At the end of the movie Mayhem!, Sam walks into Narong’s office where Narong is holding a gun, waiting for him. But surprise! This showdown was actually planned long before. Narong and Sam’s ex-boss, Farhat, were secretly working together.

    For the past five years, Kasem (the guy who was trying to track down Sam) was doing Farhat’s bidding. It turns out, that the guy Sam killed in France was Farhat’s brother, and Farhat was desperate for revenge.

    Revenge drives the whole story of Mayhem! In the final scene, Sam gathers all his courage to take down the man who ruined his life. Sadly, Hansa, Sam’s ally, dies protecting him. Without Hansa, Sam’s plan would have failed.

    Who Gave Sam to Narong?

    Before Narong got taken out, he spilled the beans that Sombat helped set up Sam. At the end of “Mayhem!”, it came out that Sombat was secretly in love with Mia the whole time.

    Before Sam showed up in Mia and Dara’s lives, it was Sombat who looked after them. He was like a father figure to Mia, and he couldn’t handle it when things changed because of Sam. Sombat blamed Sam for taking Mia away from him.

    He was convinced that he loved Mia more than Sam ever could. Sombat joined forces with Narong to get rid of Sam, but it didn’t go the way he planned. He ended up feeling shattered. Finally, Sombat couldn’t bear the guilt anymore and ended his own life.

    Was Dara Still Alive?

    At the end of “Mayhem!”, Sam was finally reunited with Dara, his stepdaughter. It turned out that Dara survived the chaos at Bang Chan. Sombat took her under his wing, but he couldn’t replace Sam as her father.

    When Narong’s goons attacked Sam and Mia, Sombat probably pleaded with them to spare the child. He couldn’t save Mia, but he hoped to make things right by protecting her daughter. Dara was thrilled to see Sam alive.

    She thought he was gone for good, so seeing him was like a miracle. Sam was now her only family, and he vowed to keep her safe no matter what. Sam will likely do his best to avoid trouble, maybe even moving to another country.

    Let’s hope Narong’s crew won’t come after him again. If they do, we might see a sequel to this action-packed drama.
