College life is indeed one of the most memorable era for many of us.
It was the time when we had to be more focused with our studies and take it very seriously, spawning to sleepless nights, innumerable trips to libraries, skipping of meals, and listening to lectures for long hours, not to mention the hefty amount of money you spent for the tuition and school fees and requirements.
But at the same time, it was the period when our circle began to grow as we met new friends through our classmates, schoolmates, and org mates (or the people we got acquainted with in the academic organizations we used to join). Besides, some of us even found the special person they’re going to be with for the rest of their lives.
If this thought and/or the stressful adulting phase sparked your yearning to look back to your college days and friends, then "Walwal" is definitely the movie you should watch once it hits the cinemas starting June 27!
A brainchild of playwright Gerald Mark Foliente and helmed by prized director Jose Javier Reyes, the youth-oriented flick follows the lives of four friends Dondi (Elmo Magalona), Marco (Kiko Estrada), Intoy (Jerome Ponce), and Bobby (Donny Pangilinan) and how the turn of events and personal struggles affected them individually, their bond, and their connection with the people around them.
It may be reminiscent of the “barkada”-themed films or series we have watched, but this still differs as it focuses on the stories of the current generation. In his recent interviews, Direk Joey considers this as an updated version of his 90s movie "Pare Ko," headlined by then budding teen stars Mark Anthony Fernandez, Jao Mapa, Jomari Yllana, and Victor Neri.
In every clique, we know that there’s diversity in the interests and personalities of everyone involved. Thus, we challenge Kisses Delavin by asking who among the cast, which also includes first Miss Multinational winner Sophia Senoron, Star Magic talent Jane de Leon, and Pinoy Big Brother alumnae Devon Seron and the three dudes of Walwal – Jerome, Elmo, and Donny – she thinks is the “pinaka” or “greatest” in the each of the attitudes we enumerated.
