Following the success of Milan, which was a very good film, the producers thought they would make a similar film based in Dubai. Wrong. Two brothers fall in love with the same girl.( played by Aga Muhlach and John Lloyd Cruz ). The girl is Claudine Barretto a very good actress. so, whats the problem with the film. the story is a basic love triangle film, with beautiful locations. The second fault is the ending. The girl really loves one of the brothers but gets pregnant with the other brother, so far so good. The brothers argue at some point. the girl can't take it any more and goes back to the Philippines, heavy with child. The brothers then get back together, and the older one gets to go to Canada, and the younger one ( who is also the father of the unborn child ) remains in Dubai. A happy ending. Come on guys. Filipinoes go abroad to make money for their families. This girl goes back home with no support from the father, and he does not seem to care. Is that the way Star Cinema wants to portray the Filipino abroad. Whatever was gained in Milan was lost in Dubai.
The film also makes out that life in Dubai is great, well believe you me it isn't, ask any Filipina.
