Heart-stopping action-drama. ABS-CBN's newest Kapamilya Gold "Dugong Buhay" held an advanced screening for the entertainment press and special guests last Friday at Gateway Cinema Cubao, Quezon City. Created by national artist Director Carlo J. Caparas, directed by Toto Natividad and Mickey Del Rosario, Dugong Buhay stars Ejay Falcon, Arjo Atayde, Nonie Buencamino, Christian Vasquez, Sunshine Cruz and Ana Capri in a story about the vengeance of Simon (played by Nonie Buencamino and Carlo Aquino as the young Simon) using Victor (Ejay Falcon playing also as Gabriel, the missing son of Isabel/Sunshine Cruz and Enrique/ Christian Vasquez) in his plight for justice. Arjo Atayde is Rafael De Lara, the brother of Victor/Gabriel unaware of his sibling. Ana Capri as Elena plays the nanny of Gabriel who will be named Victor by Simon (Nonie Buencamino) after the fire sets off a twist that will make him adopt the first child of De Lara Family. As expected, Ana Capri delivers an outstanding acting performance at par with sir Nonie Buencamino whom we have known to be one of the best character actors of this generation. Elena (Ana Capri) will become the foster mother of Victor (Ejay Falcon) who will struggle to melt Simon (Nonie Buencamino) to forgive the De Lara family who caused the death of his real family in the beginning. I was surprised at Arjo Atayde (Rafael De Lara) who seemed so grown-up because I've seen him grow up with mommy Sylvia Sanchez-Atayde when we've always bumped into them in Boracay in the late 90s. From the point of view of the many watching Kapamilya Gold, Dugong Buhay will raise the expectations higher because the men will definitely enjoy the action scenes and the stunts of Ejay Falcon. The many mommies like me will cry at the eyes of Ana Capri and Sunshine Cruz playing mothers intertwined with the conflicts of men and the teens will definitely awe at Arjo Atayde, Jed Montero, Yam Concepcion and Ejay Falcon for not just being eye-candy but romantic in some scenes on how their paths will cross. Will you hate Simon or will you understand him? What will happen to the Sakadas? I am excited at what will Simon do next in Dugong Buhay so let's all tune in starting tomorrow at 3:30pm at ABS-CBN Kapamilya Gold.
