The movie-going public is in for a totally different and refreshing treat asUnitel Productions presents a heartwarming musical comedy film like no other in the star-studded movie-oke “I Do Bidoo Bidoo: Heto nAPO Sila.”
Boasting of a stellar cast comprised of the country’s biggest OPM giants Gary Valenciano, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Sam Concepcion and OPM main man himself Ogie Alcasid, and the country’s current box-office comedy queen Eugene Domingo, “I Do Bidoo Bidoo” features the timeless music of the Apo Hiking Society highlighted in the story of two young lovers (Sam Concepcion and Tippy Dos Santos) and their relationship with their families.
The movie is directed by the equally impressive Chris Martinez (“Ang Babae sa Septic Tank,” “100,” among others), who ventures on his very first ever full-length musical film in “I Do Bidoo Bidoo: Heto nAPO Sila.”
The movie-oke (simply because it is guaranteed to make the moviegoer sing along while watching the film) has always been the dream project of producer Tony Gloria. Mr. Gloria’s Unitel is responsible for hit movies “Crying Ladies” and “La Visa Loca” which are movies cited also for their quality and critical acclaim.
He said he knows that the Filipino audience is ready for this kind of musical extravaganza on the big screen, especially when the music comes very close to the heart of the Filipino just like the songs of Jim Paredes, Buboy Garrovillo and Danny Javier who are collectively known as the Apo Hiking Society.
“I Do Bidoo Bidoo: Heto nAPO Sila’ is a movie we can be very proud of. It is by the Filipino and for the Filipino,” Mr. Gloria said.
The heartwarming musical comedy will be an APO movie-oke celebration, they all promise. “The refreshing and impressive casting combination for this new movie genre has got all of us excited and we are sure that the public will be as excited as we are.”
The other members of the cast are Neil Coleta, Jaime Fabregas, Kiray Celis, Gerald Pesigan, Sweet Plantado and Frenchie Dy.
