‘Dito at Doon’ to deliver high school “kilig” feels

Hala, hala, hala! Parang kilig katorse ‘yan ah!” (Getting giddy like you’re fourteen!) – Victor Anastacio in Dito at Doon trailer.

TBA Studios and WASD Films’ upcoming romance movie ‘Dito at Doon’ takes us back to those high school “kilig” feels but set in the pandemic. Starring Janine Gutierrez and JC Santos with Victor Anastacio and Yesh Burce, directed by JP Habac (I’m Drunk, I Love You).

You may say it’s just another Pinoy romance movie. But there’s a reason why we’re always drawn to these types of movies. So, what does ‘Dito and Doon’ have that drew these actors to its story?

Victor Anastacio: “Yung nasa teaser, ‘yung ‘baka ‘yung away niyo, sexual tension?’ Ang gandang panoorin ‘yun eh. ‘Yung sinasabi nilang “the more you hate, the more you love,” diba? Parang galit na galit sila sa isa’t-sa, anong gagawin nito pagkatapos? Baka magyayakapan sila or galit na ba talaga sila tuloy-tuloy na? ‘Yung gano’ng laro, naaaliw ako dun eh.

JC Santos: Ano bang nagustuhan ko dito, ang dami eh. Ang dami kasing qualities nitong film namin na pwedeng maging unusual quality ng love story. Kasi it’s between disconnected people, papaano ‘yung journey ng relationship. ‘Yun ang nag-appeal sa akin, paano kaya eto? This new millennial, technological relationship. Paano magla-last, paano magtu-tuloy tuloy, paano ang magiging journey nito?

Janine Gutierrez: Ako? I like how very real and personal and parang messy ‘yung journey from meeting someone online to meeting them in person. Parang merong messy in between na “tatawag ba siya? Sabi niya tatawag siya. Masyado pa bang maaga para mag-reply? Baka sabihin niya atat na ata ako mag-reply. ‘Yung ganon sa isang relationship na parang hindi pa kayo nagde-date pero parang nababaliw ka na, na parang “ay baka may iba na siyang ka-text.” I like how it shows that, it’s really emotional, sobrang vulnerable. ‘Yung simpleng text na parang “hala! Baka dapat 20 minutes muna bago ako mag-reply.” ‘Yung mga ganun.

Yesh Burce: Agree ako sa lahat ng sinabi nila, totoo ‘yon! Pero gusto ko lang tuhugan ‘yung sinabi ni Janine na ‘yung feeling kasi nito para siyang nakaka-high schoool. Parang gano’n. ”Oh my gosh!” May gano’n siyang feeling. ‘Yung mga naranasan nating kilig noon nung high school tayo, nandito siya. Alam mo ‘yung matured ka na pero bigla kang kikiligin. Pero hindi pang high school ‘yung pelikula. I mean hindi lang siya gano’n, pero ‘yung feeling niya nakaka-igh school ang kilig.
