Ibabalik tayo sa kasaysayan ng Pilipinas sa pelikulang ‘Maharlika’

NAPAPANAHON ngayon ang mga period movie – mga pelikulang nagkukuwento ng kasaysayan ng ating bansa. Tulad ng ‘Balangiga 1901’ na puspusan nang sinu-shoot ng JF Film Productions mula sa panulat at direksyon ni Danny Marquez.

            Moviegoers go for movies na nagtuturo ng kasaysayan, aral at drama ng buhay. That’s why period movies are close to our hearts, sa panonood kasi nito ay nararamdaman natin ang pagiging Pinoy, nabubuksan ang isip sa kasaysayan ng kahapon at natututo tayo sa leksyon ng nakaraan.

            And  last Thursday, February 18, 2021, naganap ang story conference para sa pinakabagong pelikula mula sa JF Film Productions that will be co-produced by  Shariff Ibrahim Albani, ang ‘Maharlika.’ Ang pelikula ay tatalakay sa kasaysayan ng ating lahi at sasagutin dito ang tunay na kahulugan ng salitang Maharlika, at ang koneksyon nito noong unang panahon sa ating mga Pilipino. The movie will bring us back in time sa panahon ng alyansa ng Sultanate ng Sulu and China way back from Ming dynasty, and so on. Istorya ito noong panahon ng ating mga kanunu-nunuan.

            The movie will be written by Danny Marquez, it will have a thorough research, at ididirek din ni direk Danny Marquez with the veteran director, Jun Posadas.

            Magiging mabusisi ang pagtalakay ng pelikula kaya marahil ay hindi ganoon kadali ang paglikha ng istorya at iskrip. In the story conference we heard some stories from the guests especially from Shariff Albani which we believe knows a lot in the history. And we also believe sa kakayahan ni direk Danny Marquez on writing scripts about this genre kaya naniniwala kaming maganda ang itatakbo nito.

            As we have written in the other column yesterday, we mentioned of Cesar Montano sa isa sa mga kinokonsider na artista rito, but nothing is final yet. The movie is an all-star cast, meaning there’ll be many big named stars to act here. At magandang bentahe iyon for this to make it real, real big in the box-office.

Meanwhile, co-producer Shariff Ibrahim H. Albani is the Chairman of the World Philoso-phical Forum Phils, Inc. and his Affiliations are:  Former Senatorial Aspirant, Representative of the Muslim in the Senate 2016;  President – Indigenous Group of Industry, Manila;  Anak-Sug Association – External Vice President for Region IX;  Former Senatorial Aspirant, KBL;  Muslim-Mindanao Poor Association – President;  Muslim-Christian United Association – Adviser; Sultanate of Sulu & North Borneo – Senior Adviser on Foreign Investment of the Office of the Secretary-General;  Sons & Daughters of Philippine Veterans Legion – Mindanao Commander; Christian – Muslim in Lumad Association – National Adviser;  H-World United Military Government – National Lecturer.

            Back to the movie, ‘Maharlika’ like ‘Balangiga 1901’ will be a very huge film in terms of production budget, quality, and stars. As soon as the cast members are finalized, we will announce it here, and soon the shooting will take place.
