I saw some of this telenovela in Mexico nearly 6 months ago
31 March 2013 | by aaronalmarezSee all my reviews

I saw some of "Porque El Amor Manda"("Love Rules")when I was in Mexico(Hermosillo, Sonora)back in October. During some of that trip which was from October 8-12, this telenovela had just premiered by Televisa and was shown on "Canal de las Estrellas's" Hermosillo affiliate. But I only saw bits and pieces of the novela during that time. Now, nearly 6 months later, "Porque El Amor Manda" is now being shown here in the U.S. on Univision. Although it's been shown here in the U.S. for a few weeks, it seems good so far. The actors and actresses such as Fernando Colunga, Blanca Soto(in her Televisa debut), Carmen Salinas, Julissa, Alejandro Avila, Jorge Aravena, Erick Elias, Violeta Isfel, Kika Edgar, Ruben Cerda, Ricardo Fastlicht, Ricardo Margaleff, Ninel Conde, and Maria Elisa Camargo, I've seen act in other telenovelas from Televisa and maybe Venevision, RTI-Telemundo, and maybe RCN in the past and are pretty good actors and actresses as well. The theme song which is performed by dance group 3 Ball MTY who have the hits, "Intentalo" and "Besos Al Aire" is good and just as catchy as their aforementioned hits. And like many telenovelas from Televisa, "Porque El Amor Manda" is a remake. The original version was entitled "El Secretario" and was from Colombia and produced by Caracol productions. I've seen some of the first episode of that original version on Youtube for which I did notice the similarities between the original Colombian version and its Mexican counterpart. But I'm pretty sure that Telefutura will probably air "El Secretario" on that network sometime in the near future. Like I said before, "Porque El Amor Manda" seems pretty good in the short time that it's been shown here in the U.S.A. and I'm waiting to see how the rest of this telenovela turns out during its duration as well.
