Mano Po 7: Chinoy - An Early Christmas Treat from Regal Entertainment

Regal Entertainment, Inc's early Christmas offering, "Mano Po 7: Chinoy" is a star studded treat opening on December 14.

"Mano Po" is the country's biggest film franchise in drama. It has featured some of our brightest stars like Susan Roces, Vilma Santos, Sharon Cuneta, Lorna Tolentino, Zsa Zsa Padilla and more. The mother and daughter team of Lily and Roselle Monteverde decided to produce the new edition in the highly successful film franchise because of its timely plot and insistent public clamor. This time, Chinoy actor Richard Yap gets his biggest break in a family drama via "MP7"

The  Kapamilya actor is a revelation in his dramatic scenes. In the movie, Richard plays a business tycoon who is overly protective and strict with his loved ones, including his wife (played by Jean Garcia) and kids (Enchong Dee, Janella Salvador, and Jana Agoncillo). But behind the toughness is a family man full of love for his dear ones. 

First time cast members in the millennial version of "MP" are Jean, Enchong, Janella, Jana, Jake Cuenca, Jessy Mendiola, Marlo Mortel, and Kean Cipriano. Jean is the dutiful and loving wife Richard neglects due to numerous business dealings. Enchong is the troublesome some who rebels against the idea of his dad losing time for the family.

Janella, meanwhile, is the daughter her father sends to music school against her wishes. She figures in several love-hate scenes with perennial screen partner Marlo Mortel in the film. Jake, meanwhile, portrays the role of Jean's secret lover. Jessy is Enchong's girlfriend whom he meets at a rehabilitation center. Kean, on the other hand, is Janella's music professor who has secret feelings for her. Shot mostly in Taiwan, "MP7" is dubbed as the biggest and grandest millennial edition.

Aside from tackling issues like conflicts in Chinese-Pinay marriage, the movie also shows different Chinese traditions never-before seen in "Mano Po" installments. Kudos go to "MP7" director Ian Lorenos, the man behind  such films as LJ Reyes' "The Leaving,"  for which she won a best supporting actress award and "Alagwa" which gave Jericho Rosales a Gawad Urian best actor trophy. Definitely, "Mano Po 7 Chinoy" is a treat perfect for the entire family this Christmas season.

Don't miss the moving family drama in theaters nationwide starting December 14.
