Movie Review: Hari ng Tondo

A grandfather on the brink of bankruptcy brings his grandchildren back to the community that made and shaped him, only to find out the place is no longer the same.

Based on the reception of the audience at the gala of this film the screenplay is an audience pleaser and spoon-fed. Very mainstream ang approach ng pelikula. This is something new for Direk Carlitos that we all know for doing serious themes in his previous films. Napakalight lang ng pelikula at may potential na makacrossover sa mainstream. Maayos naman yung pagkakagawa ng film. Para nga akong nanonood ng mainstream film minus the product endorsement. Ok din yung musical element ng film lalo na yung theme song na Sige ng Sige na may recall. All of the artists are good especially the veterans ofcourse Robert Arevalo, Rez Cortez, Liza Lorena, Audie Gemora, Eric Quizon and Ali Sotto. It’s refreshing to see them in a light film. Ang lakas ng presence n Chris Villonco sa film then Rafa Sigion Reyna is charming. Ang galing naman umarte ni Ciara Sotto. Simple lang yung story ng film and this is the enjoyable film to watch to on Director’s Showcase.

My Verdict:  3/5
