Stories of infiinite "no-closure" relationships make me cry all the time. I guess those of my age and not will really appreciate the highly-anticipated drama, "Walang Hanggan" of ABS-CBN starting tomorrow. It was a tear-jerking experience watching the advanced screening of ABS-CBN's "Walang Hanggan" with friends last Saturday night at SM Megamall. Starring the queens of Philippine cinema, Susan Roces and Helen Gamboa, Eddie Gutierrez, Richard Gomez, Dawn Zulueta and the first on-screen team-up of Julia Montes and Coco Martin, the story of "Walang Hanggan" revolves around the undying love of the characters in three generations.
Soon to top ratings in drama for television, "Walang Hanggan" made me hate the character of Helen Gamboa who used to play the protagonist in all her roles and pity at Susan Roces who have acquired the respect and pride of the Filipinos because of the late FPJ. It was hard not to cry at Dawn Zulueta's character who will totally make you remember friends who have contained pain through the years.
The plot thickens with Coco Martin (playing Daniel, also called Onat) and Julia Montes who will make you contemplate if they'd have the same circumstances as those of the elders in the drama. Completing the powerhouse cast are well-regarded actors Rita Avila, Melissa Ricks, Joem Bascon and Paulo Avelino; with the special participation of Eddie Gutierrez and Joel Torre. Ogie Diaz, Arlene Muhlach and Spanky Manikan also play interesting roles written by Reggie Amigo and Noreen Capili and directed by Jerry Lopez Sineneng and Trina Dayrit. Present during the advanced screening were other Kapamilya stars Vice Ganda, Kris Aquino and Richard Yap (Papa Chen of Binondo Girl). I really loved the production design with backdrop set similar to Dawn and Richard's movie, "Hihintayin Kita sa Langit" in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte and the house where Dawn (playing Emily) lives with her father.
I will definitely not missing every episode of "Walang Hanggan" to marvel at the characters of Coco Martin and Helen Gamboa after Budoy at ABS-CBN starting tomorrow.
