Robin Padilla


ROBIN Padilla approves of nephew, Daniel Padilla's performance in the 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry "Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo".

In an interview with the actor on Wednesday, Robin said the Kapamilya Teen King is the perfect fit to portray his character in the movie.

Without giving away the role of Daniel, Robin said the whole cast and production team are hopeful that they will be able to get the young market to watch and learn the life led by Bonifacio.

"The best (si Daniel). Siya yung pang kumpleto dito. Napaka-importante niya kasi siya yung nagre-represent ng gusto namin malapitan ng produksiyon. Siya yung nagre-represent ng kabataan na gusto namin iparating yung mensahe nitong proyekto," he said.

Robin added: "Hindi lang naman namin ito ginawa para kumita kundi para makilala nila yung isa sa national heroes natin. Utang natin ang history natin sa kanila."

Aside from getting the big bulk of the viewing public this Christmas season, Robin is also hopeful that the movie will be shown in schools as part of their study material.

"'Yun ang pangarap namin, na iabot sa kanila. Bakit naman hindi. Ini-enjoy natin ito [kalayaan] natin dahil kay Bonifacio. Isang daan ito na pasasalamat natin sa kanila."

He promises the movie is worth every penny.

"Sulit ang ibabayad nila sa pelikulang ito. Sa usaping teknikal, at kung ano yung nakita ninyong magic namin (ni Vina noon), mas matindi ang makikita ninyo ngayon."

"Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo" is a historical action epic that brings to light the powerful, true-to-life story of Filipino revolutionary Andres Bonifacio, played by Robin, unfolding through the eyes of a young man (Daniel) in this day and age.

Joining Robin, Vina and Daniel are RJ Padilla, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Joem Bascon, Junjun Quintana, Cholo Barretto, Isabel Oli, RJ Padilla, Richard Quan, Ping Medina, Isko Moreno, Rommel Padilla, Dennis Marasigan, Eddie Garcia with the special participation of Jericho Rosales as Jose Rizal.

Directed by Enzo Williams, "Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo" opens on Christmas Day. (Sunnex)
