TAPE Inc, the makers of "Agawin Mo Man Ang Lahat" and "Saang Sulok Ng
Langit" must have a penchant for ultra-depressing story lines. Although
"Agawin" takes off a bit more than "Saang" wherein the heroes and
heroines of the soap get their second wind early on by becoming
stronger than the usual soap opera protagonists, the masochistic
writers of the show make sure that the fighting heroes get double the
pain and anguish.
"Agawin" has the same premise of all the Filipino soap operas that came
before it: heroine lives normal life, gets messed up by ultra-evil
antagonist because of money, heroine gets second wind and gets revenge.
Rosanna Roces lookalike Marian Rivera stars as Almira, the heroine
whose life gets messed up because of money, and Oyo Boy Sotto, the
rising leading male as the boy. The rest of the cast includes Cheska
Garcia, Matthew Mendoza, Wendell Ramos, and Mylene Dizon in the role of
your stereotypical cold-blooded antagonist out to get everyone and
anyone who stands for righteousness.
The story is formulaic enough for afternoon soaps, just throw in the
usual fight for the riches, shadowy goons in eye-patches, a juicy fight
for some guy's riches, and you've got your afternoon soap right there.
Of course, the show is creamed with TAPE Incoporated's trademark
I can bet that the next soap opera lined up by TAPE will be just as
depressing as the others. Watch this, and make sure you keep the rope
and poison far away from you.
