Event: #StarCinema's Self-Help, Crush and more at #BakitHindiKaCrushNgCrushMo #bloggersconference with Kim Chiu, Xian Lim, Kean Cipriano
It's a big deal to know why your crush doesn't like you back and for teens who will raise hell to know the answers, Star Cinema offers the ultimate solution to this problem with Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo. On its 20th year, Star Cinema offers the most hilarious romantic comedy film starring Xian Lim and Kim Chiu in Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo, a movie adapted from the book of Ramon Bautista of the same title. Directed by Bb. Joyce Bernal, Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo is a movie that answers the most-requested question everybody heeds answers. I joined in fellow bloggers with writer Anj Pessumal, Kean Cipriano, Xian Lim and Kim Chiu last Sunday at the Training Room of ABS-CBN Broadcast Center.
Upon arrival after their regular performances at ASAP XVIII, Kim, Xian and Kean entertained the bloggers and their questions about the movie. When I had the chance to shoot questions, Xian Lim shared how it was difficult when he was young to express his feelings toward the opposite sex. He was shy then and pointed at Kim being the ultimate crush in her high school back in Cebu. Kean playing Gardo was hilarious sharing his own experiences about his crush.
According to the writer Anj Pessumal, the movie was faithful to the book in the movie adaptation. Somehow if many had perceived the book to be blunt, the realities concur in most situations. It was a fun afternoon listening to the stars Kim, Xian and Kean completely aware of the contents of Ramon Bautista's book. Most questions many perpetually ask have been answered and Star Cinema's Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo presents them in the most creative way of narration. I'm very interested on how the author Ramon Bautista who introduced himself as the ultimate crush action star was able to be convinced by Star Cinema. I take my hats off to the stars especially Kim Chiu who was also convinced to play Sandy Veloso - a hopeless romantic woman perpetually faithful to believing that there is actually true love. Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo also stars Diane Medina, Jojit Lorenzo, Ryan Boyce, Lilia Cuntapay, Tonton Gutierez and the author himself, Ramon Bautista.
These and more reasons why Star Cinema had completely made all Filipinos proud about local films. I can't wait to watch Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo not just to use the film as an example of real indigenous creative writing material but because the lessons the movie will imply will make Filipinos gain more confidence about themselves and about their country. Let's all watch Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo starting July 31, 2013 at all cinemas nationwide.
