I attended the special screening of Dahil sa Pag-ibig at Trinoma yesterday and judging from the "hiyawan" and "iyakan" inside the cinema, this looks like another hit for ABS-CBN.
The first few episodes tackled the lives of real life couple, Christoper de Leon and Sandy Andolong and how the fates seemed to conspire to bring them the young Piolo Pascual as an adoptive son. Right at the start, all the characters give up one thing or another for the sake of love.
The big story behind Dahil sa Pag-Ibig is pretty good although the road getting there gets a little shaky from time to time. That aside, the performances are top notch even from the kids playing the younger version of the main cast.
When all the back-stories finally pay off though, we get a well-structured drama, worthy of one of the biggest gathering of the country's biggest and most able stars.
Dahil sa Pag-Ibig replaces Budoy and will start airing tonight at ABS-CBN. Here is a glimpse of Dahil sa Pag-Ibig as seen through the theme song.
