Sunshine Dizon and Angelika dela Cruz engage in confrontation scenes once again for their latest afternoon drama series, Inagaw na Bituin.
In their previous Pinoy teleserye, Ika-6 Na Utos, Sunshine and Angelika did outrageous, campy confrontation scenes that became viral on social media.
Doing these scenes don't seem to be a problem for these two GMA-7 actresses, because they have been working together since 2000. They started out via the miniseries, Umulan Man O Umaraw.
Inagaw na Bituin is the fifth TV project of Sunshine and Angelika.
This is also the observation of their Inagaw na Bituin director, Mark Reyes, who spoke to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the press conference for Mystified last March 12.
He pointed out, "Kasi they worked with each other na, so they know the numbers, parang very technical for them na.
"So, they don't hurt each other and then if they feel na kung kulang, dadagdagan pa nila. So, that's the nice thing about it."
The only difference is that Sunshine and Angelika already use "weapons" in their fight scenes.
For this reason, some netizens playfully commented that Inagaw na Bituin is the "sequel of Ika-6 Na Utos."
With Angelika and Sunshine once again thrust into the same genre, PEP.ph lists down five of their campy but entertaining confrontation scenes in Inagaw na Bituin and Ika-6 Na Utos.
SUNSHINE VS. ANGELIKA: GUITAR SCENE IN INAGAW NA BITUIN
In this scene, aired on Inagaw na Bituin's 19th episode, Lucy (Angelika) was outraged upon learning that Belinda (Sunshine) took over her supposed coaching stint in the fictional contest, "The Brightest Star."
Instead of giving Belinda a kiss, Lucy greeted her sister by choking her.
Belinda was surprised by her sister's attack, especially since she was unaware that she replaced Lucy on the show.
Lucy angrily said that she gave up other jobs just to get that stint.
Belinda replied, "O, marami ka naman palang trabaho, e, ano pang ikinakakagalit mo?"
Lucy became even more outraged by Belinda's answer. Lucy then grabbed a guitar and tried to hit Belinda.
Belinda was able to avoid the guitar, and left the venue to escape her sister's wrath.
SUNSHINE VS. ANGELIKA: FLOWER SLAMMING SCENE IN INAGAW NA BITUIN
In Episode 13, Belinda found out that Lucy stole all her money and sold her house!
Belinda was so infuriated by this information that she rushed to Lucy's gig and confronted her.
Lucy turned her back at Belinda to avoid the topic, but Belinda pulled her.
Lucy furiously threw music sheets at Belinda, slapped her, and pushed her towards a flower pole.
Belinda grabbed flowers from the pole, and slammed them onto Lucy's face.
The two sisters ended up pulling each other's hair and choking each other.
The catfight only ended when their mother, Aurora (Jackie Lou Blanco), stopped them.
SUNSHINE VS. ANGELIKA: PHOTOCOPYING MACHINE SCENE IN IKA-6 NA UTOS
The photocopying machine scene in Ika-6 Na Utos was the first confrontation scene Sunshine and Angelika did for the Kapuso afternoon series in 2017.
This project served as the TV comeback of Angelika who took a short hiatus from showbiz.
Set in an office, the fight scene started when Sunshine's character, Emma, confronted Angelika's Geneva after a failed murder attempt.
Geneva was infuriated by Emma's accusations. For this reason, Geneva slapped Emma, prompting the two to engage in a physical confrontation.
Emma threw a puncher at Geneva's face and slapped her repeatedly.
Emma then slammed Geneva's face at a photocopying machine and literally produced copies of Geneva's face!
Angelo (Mike Tan) attempted to stop the two women from fighting.
Geneva, in her most "paawa" effect, told Angelo, "Nakita mo ginawa sa akin ng babaeng 'yan sa harap ng maraming tao?!"
Emma retorted, "Hoy! Maayos akong pumapasok sa opisina na ito pero hinaharang ako ng sungay mo na kasing haba ng MRT!"
Their confrontation only stopped when Flor (Rich Asuncion) took Emma to another room.
SUNSHINE VS. ANGELIKA: CHEESE SCENE IN IKA-6 NA UTOS
In this Ika-6 Na Utos confrontation scene, Emma and Geneva had a face-off at a party organized by Angelo.
Emma accused Geneva of stealing Angelo from her, but Geneva kept on denying it.
Emma told her, "Masakit bang marinig ang katotohanan? Hindi ba't alam mong kami ni Angelo pero nilandi mo pa rin siya?"
Geneva replied, "Bawiin mo yang sinabi mo!"
Emma said, "Bakit ko babawiin? Sabi ko nga sa 'yo, e. Sanay na sanay ako sa mga katulad mo, e. In fact, meron akong kakilala na best friend ni Satanas. I'm pretty sure nagkita na rin kayo siguro sa isang gathering, kasi pareho kayong asal demonyo, asal satanas!"
Emma was referring to her nemesis, Georgia (Ryza Cenon), who at that time has not been revealed yet as Geneva's long-lost sister.
Emma challenged Geneva, "Subukan mo akong hamunin ngayon, nang matagpas ko yang sungay mo at kayurin ko yang balat mong ahas."
Geneva responded by grabbing a plate of white sauce and throwing it at Emma's dress.
Geneva taunted her enemy by saying, "O, ano ka ngayon, ha! Ano, tameme ka, ano?"
Emma pushed Geneva and slapped her, causing Geneva to land on the buffet table with her face dunked on a bowl of melted cheese.
Emma told her, "Ayan, magpakalunod ka sa keso. Para hindi puro kapaitan at kabitteran ang kinakalat mo sa mundo!"
Before giving her a slap on the face, Geneva shouted at Emma, "You bitch!"
The two women then engaged in a brawl that resembled a MMA fight. They threw each other across tables and at point, Geneva grabbed a knife and attempted to slash Emma!
The fight was only stopped when Angelo arrived at the venue just as Emma was choking Geneva.
SUNSHINE VS. ANGELIKA: PLAYGROUND SCENE IN IKA-6 NA UTOS
Sunshine and Angelika's third confrontation scene in Ika-6 Na Utos happened at a playground.
In this confrontation scene, Emma went to a playground to see Sidney (Angelica Ulip), Geneva's niece.
Geneva caught the two of them talking, and immediately sent Sidney inside her car.
Geneva asked Emma, "Lamok ka ba noong past life mo? Wala ka kasing ginawa kung hindi umaligid lang kay Sidney, e. Wala ka namang point sa buhay niya."
Geneva warned Emma to stay away from her niece.
Emma responded by saying, "I'm sorry Geneva pero hindi kasi ako lamok na pwede mo lang itaboy at patayin. Sa ating dalawa, ikaw ang lamok. Lamok na may kasamang Japanese Encephalitis."
Geneva then accused Emma of being a gold-digger.
Emma taunted her by saying, "Kung merong mang gold-digger dito, kayo yun ng kapatid mo. Yung kapatid mo na kung kani-kaninong mayaman kumabit, kakahukay ng ginto, basura pa rin ang nakuha."
Geneva, obviously insulted by Emma's words, warned Emma to stop insulting her sister, Georgia.
Emma then replied, "Bakit Geneva, nasasaktan ka ba? O baka naman nakarelate ka kasi kahit anong bihis mo, basura pa rin kayong magkapatid."
Geneva exclaimed, "Basura pala, ha!" She then used a swing to physically hurt Emma.
A long fight scene then happened, with Emma and Geneva using the playground's facilities to injure each other.
They were only stopped when guards arrived at the playground.
Since Ika-6 Na Utos became popular for its campy fight scenes, the creators are consciously veering away from this formula in Inagaw na Bituin.
Direk Mark told PEP.ph, "I think so, because ang very aware niyan are the writers.
"Some of them, I think, were writers of Ika-6, so they are very careful with that."
He also disclosed that more catfights, including those involving the characters of Kyline Alcantara and Therese Malvar, are yet to be seen in Inagaw na Bituin.
PEPsters, which Sunshine-Angelika confrontation scenes are better: the ones from Ika-6 Na Utos or Inagaw na Bituin?
