Not one but two premieres were in order for Sa Ngalan Ng Ama, Ina, At Mga Anak this week, the film that assembles showbiz’s huge and talented Padilla clan for the very first time on the big screen.
The first premiere was held at the Geegee Mall Cinema 1 in Ozamiz City, Misamis Occidental on Janaury 27, which had the movie’s lead, action superstar Robin Padilla, together with RJ Padilla, Matt Padilla and Rommel Padilla in attendance. The event was flocked by thousands of fans excited to see and meet the dashing actors live.
This was followed by a grand red-carpet premiere in Manila at Gateway Mall Cinema 4 on January 28.
Sa Ngalan Ng Ama, Ina, At Mga Anak stars Robin Padilla (who won Best Actor in the 2013 MMFF for his stirring performance in 10,000 Hours), Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla, Kylie Padilla, Bella Padilla, RJ Padilla, Matt Padilla, and ABS-CBN’s “Primetime Teen King” Daniel Padilla (whose 2013 MMFF entry Pagpag was named the highest grossing horror movie in the festival’s history).
The new action-drama, which garnered tremendous applause and positive feedback during its Ozamiz premiere, is a period film set in the turbulent decade of the 1970s.
It is loosely based on the true story of Ongkoy (Robin Padilla) who was once the leader of the infamous anti-vigilante group Kuratong Baleleng that gained notoriety in Ozamiz City in the said decade.
According to Robin, the movie aims to address the truth and lies that has long shrouded the Kuratong Baleleng controversy. More importantly, the film valiantly proves that love of family and for country will always prevail despite troublesome times.
The socio-historic action-drama also offers myriad insights that will surely touch the hearts of every Filipino. It presents the ideology that each person can be a hero not only for country but also for friends and family; and the universal law that no bad deed shall go unpunished. At the very core of the movie are the undying spirits of both truth and justice that celebrate the transformative power of good deeds done with great passion and good faith.
A joint project of Star Cinema and RCP Productions, Sa Ngalan Ng Ama, Ina, At Mga Anak is directed by Jon Villarin.
It also stars Christopher De Leon, Dina Bonnevie, Rommel Padilla, Karla Estrada, Pen Medina, Lito Pimentel, Dennis Padilla, Aljur Abrenica, and Bugoy Carino among many others.
