Comedy-musical "Ikaw Pa Rin, Bongga Ka Boy!" hits theaters this April

One of the torrid kissing scenes between Ai-Ai delas Alas and Robin Padilla took 24 takes to complete. This Viva Films project directed by Wenn Deramas will open in theaters nationwide this April.

Action star Robin Padilla and Comedy Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas are paired together in a romantic comedy-musical titled Ikaw Pa Rin, Bongga Ka Boy!

The working title of the movie is actually Ikaw Pa Rin but upon the suggestion of Viva chairman Vic del Rosario Jr., the sub-title Bongga Ka Boy! was added so that the public would know that this is a comedy.

From the story and screenplay of Mel Mendoza-del Rosario, Ikaw Pa Rin: Bongga Ka Boy! tells the story of a veterinarian named Baby (Ai-Ai) who bumps into a heroic fireman named Boy (Robin).

In the movie, Ai-Ai's character is unlucky in love. Her ex-boyfriend proved to be a freeloader who just wanted to avail of Baby's expertise for his pets and the pets of his other family members.

Boy is just as unlucky since his former girlfriend, the mother of his son (played by Little Big Star winner Rhap Salazar), left him for a foreigner. The fireman is now a single father who worries about how his son will turn out since he seems to be absorbing his grandmother's feminine traits and his aunt's dishonesty. But the community looks up to Boy since he always comes to his neighbors' rescue, whether their problems are big or small.

During his own time of need, Boy gets to meet Baby and in his gratitude, he promises to grant any wish that Baby asks of him. During the town fiesta, Baby announces that her one wish is to have a child of her own—with Boy as the father.

The fireman thinks she's just kidding. But Baby is dead serious, her biological clock is ticking. Will Boy keep his promise to Baby? Will this lead to a more serious relationship between them or will they continue to be unlucky in love?


Ikaw Pa Rin, Bongga Ka Boy! will open in cinemas nationwide this April.
