- Para sa Broken Hearted recently held its media launch to promote and tackle the movie adaptation of the popular book by Marcelo Santos III.
- The cast of the movie shared a bit about their relationship experiences by choosing from five different words.
The movie adaptation of Marcelo Santos III‘s book Para sa Broken Hearted recently held their press launch wherein the cast talked about the movie and their personal relationship experiences.
Prior to the launch, Janine Teñoso delighted everyone with a live performance of the movie’s original sound track, “Ang Awit Natin“.
Director Digo Ricio said that they tried to be faithful to the book as much as they can but somehow throw in their own take on the story.
“Parang sequel ‘to ng Para Sa Hopeless Romantic which was directed by Direk Andoy Ranay. So this is the second part of the book. Medyo we wanted to create a different flavor to it pero some of the characters from the first book, si Jackie which is [played by] Shy [Carlos], also a part of the cast.”
The characters of the movie are each described by the words – nagpabaya, nagsinungaling, umasa, nagdamot, and nagmadali. When the cast was asked about which of those have they experienced before, it took them a while to answer.
Louise Delos Reyes, who played the adventurous girl Kath, volunteered to answer first.
“Siguro masasabi ko ‘umasa’. Parang lahat naman tayo matindi yung faith sa karelasyon natin, or kung sang bagay. So siguro naka-relate ako dun sa ‘umasa’ dahil umasa ako na magiging okay siya. Umasa ako na after magkapatawaran, mababalik pa rin kung ano yung dati. So yung pag-asa na yun, hindi na talaga siya naging okay. Parang minsan mare-realize natin na mas okay na talaga na umalis tayo sa relationship kaysa paulit-ulit nating saktan yung sarili natin at pagkatapos nun, madadamage lang natin yung puso natin at mada-damage natin yung puso ng isa. So parang hindi siya win-win situation. Mas okay na i-reserve mo yung love and respect mo sa sarili mo.”
Yassi Pressman, who plays Shalee in the movie, also picked ‘umasa’ but chose not to give any further explanation.
On the other hand, Sam Concepcion, said that all of us have experienced all of those at some point of our lives.
“Nahihirapan akong pumili kasi parang na-realize ko in some way, at some level, maliit man o malaki, nagawa na natin lahat yan eh.
Nagpabaya minsan sa sarili mo, nagdamot minsan sa ibang tao, umasa…”
Marco Gumabao (RJ), answered ‘nagmadali’ and ‘nagpabaya’. “Nauna siyempre yung nagmadali because when you meet a person, siyempre excited ka, di ba?
Tapos towards the end, or towards the middle of your relationship, minsan nagpapabaya ka. Tapos sometimes yun naman ang dahilan kung bakit kayo nagbe-brake.”
And lastly, Shy Carlos, who plays Jackie, also answered ‘nagmadali’ but later on admitted that she still doesn’t have much experience concerning love.
Para sa Broken Hearted is a story of five different heartbreak stories as we watch the characters go from falling in love to failing miserably in keeping their happiness last.
The nationwide theater release from Viva Films and Sari Sari Films will be on October 3.
