Wonderful Comedy Film for Every Filipino
2 February 2014 | by sim-richmondSee all my reviews

Watching Wenn Deramas' "Bekikang" was surprisingly and unexpectedly a wonderful experience. Its fusion of drama and comedy in one movie, though not a unique idea, was very delightfully made to keep the hype of the audience in pursuing to watch the entirety of the movie from beginning 'til end.

The usage of postmodern style of comedy – particularly the technique that constantly reminds the audience that what they are just watching is just a movie and will always be – is very effective to bring giggles to the viewers. Also, the heaviness of the dramatic lines which varied the emotions of the watchers was effectually able to build up the lightness of the succeeding funny scenes.

The storyline per se made me feel somewhat fed up, because such kinds of plot has been used for myriad times already. Thanks to the creative and well-written script created by the scriptwriters that saved the weakness of the plot. The screen portrayals on the other hand were so-so. Joey Paras being Bekikang, along with his two sidekicks were quite good. I didn't expect to see that kind of superb acting they did, but they were able to exceed my expectations. However, most of the supporting characters were just not able to reach the standards.

On the technical side, the camera rolling could have been improved a lot, but was tolerable. The sound engineering was kinda good. They should, nevertheless, have removed some excess musical parts on the movie because it's just too much.

Overall, the movie was a nice experience and it deserves 7/10.
