After going viral on TikTok and subsequently charting on Spotify Global Viral 50 Chart where it peaked at No. 17, Singapore-based singer-songwriter Sezairi is currently on the rise with the recent success of his single “ It’s You .” A rousing ballad that showcases the journey of putting one’s fears to rest when it comes to loving someone, “It’s You” is part of Sezairi’s recently released EP, Undertones . “I had a lot of things in mind when writing this song but I guess the underlying theme is love,” the chart-topping artist opens up about the inspiration behind the track. “It’s like going on this crazy journey just searching for ‘the one’ and then having a sudden realization, and disbelief even, that you already know who you were looking for and that they were always there and will always be there for you no matter what. It’s also a sort of ode, a thank you to that special someone in your life.” The song is steadily climbing on Spotify Philippines’ Top 100 charts, ranking at No.

Fantasy and Reality, Soap Opera Movie Review.

"Parang teleserye lang..." We are always surprised if we see drama in real life.

The film Soap Opera manifests the difference between reality and fantasy. It is the story of Liza (Natileigh Sitoy) and Noel (Matt Daclan) on how they try to live a normal family life and how the teleseryes they follow affect them. When their son got sick, they plotted to trick a foreigner for financial support. As they gain from this, their family falters, incidentally mirroring the soap operas.

Soap Opera is directed by Remton Siega Zuasola, an entry to this year's Cinema One Originals. Typical could be the best word to describe this film. No surprises. What you expect to happen, will happen. Although, this could be the point of the film. While we are enthralled by the drama of the teleseryes, we should not be alarmed that it could happen in real life.  The film could have been better as the plot is promising. There could have been more humor with the soap opera part with Lovi Poe and Rocco Nacino. This film is worth watching but not memorable.

What's commendable is the acting. Kudos to Sitoy and Daclan for the outstanding performances. Daclan's Best Actor award is well-deserved.

Verdict: B-. Watch it. It's better than the "kabit" teleseryes nowadays.
