Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin (ABS-CBN) - A Gripping Drama of Conflicting Principles and Values (TV Review)

Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin is gripping drama of conflicting principles and values. I'm one of the lucky viewers to witness the premiere week of this new primetime TV series of ABS-CBN and Dreamscape last week.

The series is a satisfactory TV drama that does not only focus on one specific genre but offers a mixture of mystery, sexy & a bit of courtroom drama. It has a very interesting structure, not a simple flashback narrative or a straightforward story, but something creative altogether.

It follows the story of Zenaida (Dawn Zulueta) whose husband, Martin (Gabby Concepcion) was killed inside the prison days after he being convicted for murder of a senator he was serving. Their son Miguel (Gerald Anderson) grew up not allowing anyone to harm him and his mother; thus involving him on fights that almost expel him in his school. The only person who could appease him is his childhood sweetheart Amanda (Cristine Reyes) whom his step brother Marcus (Rayver Cruz) is attracted also.

When Miguel was about to change, he was accused of rape with homicide by a bar girl Carla (Diana Zubiri) whom he pursued on his friend's behalf.  

How far will Zenaida go in order to protect his son? Who's the person behind the rape of Carla? How will Miguel sustain his love for Amanda considering what happened?

Dawn Zulueta neatly captures Zenaida's passion and the determined spirit to be able to save his son from harm. The star of the show Gerald Anderson rises faultlessly to the challenge of conveying emotions that his character requires.

The 1st week was so compelling. It opened out into a powerfully multi-layered one – and the cliffhanger was so exciting – that it would be a crime to miss the next week episodes.

Another thing that makes this series an absolute must see is its supporting cast like Tonton Gutierrez, Thou Reyes, Rey PJ Abellana, Rommel Padilla, Venus Raj and Ms Dina Bonnevie.

I think the series will get both rave reviews and share of awards next year.

Don't miss the premiere of Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin on September 2, 2013 after Muling Buksan Ang Puso in ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida.
