The dilemma of bad timing in love gave birth to a very important story for the youth of today - She's Dating The Gangster. Ms. Bianca Bernardino's dream came true and it was a perfect timing for the movie adaptation of her famous novel. It was also the perfect timing for Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina to mold another significant actor in the history of showbiz. Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo were clueless they have made so many teens read the novel because of their movie, also another perfect timing for the youth to develop that skill lost in schools.
Just like the courteous Daniel Padilla I've expected, he managed to motivate more teens to read saying how important it is to their lives despite fatigue and lack of sleep during the bloggers conference held yesterday. It was also the same bloggers conference at Star Cinema office that Kathryn mentioned so many things Daniel did for the movie which he had not done before. I've skimmed through the novel and it took a few pages only to realize how my students got hooked on this story and other stories on Wattpad. From the bloggers conference, I've expected another KathNiel teeny romantic comedy in SDTG and I was wrong.
Breezing through the pandemonium of Kathniel fans was a struggle but it was all worth it after watching the premiere at SM Megamall last night. The movie may have had changes in adaptation (of which author Ms. Bianca Bernardino approved) but those changes did not affect in any way how it left a mark on the hearts of fans. Daniel Padilla had stepped out of the shadows of his last name. Star Cinema's "She's Dating The Gangster" made me forget the lines which I've expected to remember from Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina's trademark in the industry. She's Dating The Gangster had made Daniel Padilla a significant actor. I was totally swept with Daniel Padilla's acting that I have totally forgotten his signature Padilla moves and gestures. I had to get more tissues in the bag at the scene of Ms. Rio Locsin playing the mother of Abby (also Athena played by Sofia Andres). I have totally forgotten the Daniel Padilla I once met in 2011 at the press launch of "Growing Up". Daniel Padilla deserves an acting award or at least an acting nomination for this film.
Some scenes were made to make the Kathniel fans excited and I took my hats off to Ms. Carmi Raymundo and the whole Star Cinema staff for choosing the best ending for She's Dating The Gangster. The parents have so many reasons to allow children to patronize Kathniel and She's Dating The Gangster. The movie will teach you the importance of right timing and patience to keep pursuing your dreams. Fellow teachers in creative writing can best use this teaching how to create a conflict that leaps time and circumstance. She's Dating The Gangster got teens to read and write, thank you Ms. Bianca Bernardino and Star Cinema. It should also teach the youth of today to wait just like Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, in love and in career path.
The movie should teach the youth that true love waits, despite all circumstances. I didn't expect Daniel would make me lose my make-up crying at SDTG last night. Watch She's Dating The Gangster starting today at all cinemas nationwide. You'll never look at Daniel Padilla the same way again after this film.
