Great cast all together in a telenovela!!!!!!
5 May 2003 | by mariedoSee all my reviews

Yo amo a Paquita Gallego is one of the best Colombian telenovelas made the last 10 years ........A very intresting plot that make you don't want to loose an episode........ The story basically takes place on the steps of the protagonist........

Following the adventures and the problems of the young Paquita Gallego(Cristina Umana)to make her life better and live at last happily with the love of her life Andres. A brilliant actresses who act like a co-protagonist named Victoria Gongora and has the role of Rina Marcela tries to make the life of Paquita a living hell in order to keep her away from her beloved Andres..... The cast and the plot is never boring because changes every time. New actors added depenting on the problem Paquita has. Some of them to support her and other to distroy her......

From all these brilliant casting those who are really very nice are Kennet Martin(one of Paquita's enemies)Juan Pablo shuk is a very talented new comer and also the young Venezuelan Actor acting as Esteban named Lino Martone...

Of course the main couple Cristina Umana and Juan Andres are very nice together and there is chemistry... I could tell one of the most succesful couples in the history of the Telenovelas..... The theme song of the serial is sing by the protagonist Juan Andres which is very melodic and with great romantic lyrics.

I wish Cristina and Andres play again together in a telenovela because as good and talented are the other actors the main couple is that which make a telenovela intresting.
