Mano Po 6: A Mother’s Love

SYNOPSIS. Mano Po 6: A Mother’s Love is directed by Joel Lamangan, who megged all the previous installments except for the second one. With its P70 million budget, the sixth installment of the Mano Po series is touted to be the biggest among the Mano Po series produced by Regal Entertainment.

The producers even brought a 50-member entourage of stars, production crew and members of the press to Beijing, China to shoot added footage, thus giving an interesting and authentic Chinese elements to the film.

In this story written by Roy Iglesias, Sharon Cuneta plays a Fil-Chinese matriarch named Melinda Uy whose desire is to be reunited with her rebellious daughter Stephanie (Heart Evangelista). The compelling family drama delves on rebuilding relationships and the bond formed within a Chinese clan. It espouses family values and the rich culture and tradition of the Chinese.

Zsa Zsa Padilla is cast as Olive, the scheming sister-in-law of Melinda. Because of Olive’s evil plans, Stephanie will rebel against her own mother. Unlike her siblings (played by Ciara Sotto, Nicole Uysiuseng and John Manalo), she refuses to listen to Melinda. Heart’s character is engaged to be married to the character of Dennis Trillo but she is unaware of the fact that her fiance is actually involved with illegal activities. Melinda tried to convince Stephanie not to push through with her wedding but the young woman already hardened her heart against her mother whom she believes abandoned her in the past.

Mano Po 6 also stars Christopher de Leon as the husband of Sharon and Ryan Eigenmann as the boyfriend of Ciara’s character. JC de Vera and Glaiza de Castro play the younger versions of Christopher and Sharon, respectively. Niña Jose, Zoren Legaspi, and veteran actress Boots Anson Roa are also part of this ensemble film. Kris Aquino has a guest role in the movie as the best friend of Melinda.

    Well, it was a classic Mano Po movie: scattered plot, too many subplots, contrived social relevance, cheesy happy ending, corny narration, and bad dubbing.

    Boo to Roy Iglesias for a tired script and more boos to Joel Lamangan for bad direction. Because of these two, Sharon Cuneta’s gift of restrained acting wasn’t fully utilized. Good thing she had moments (the confrontation scene with Heart Evangelista, the slapping scene with Zsa Zsa Padilla, and her taray scenes). But are those enough to merit an award? I don’t think so.

    Kudos to Zsa Zsa Padilla for a good performance! And give Heart Evangelista an acting award!

    Overall, Mano Po 6 is another Joel Lamangan blunder.
