Liza and Enrique’s ‘Bagani’ a solid attempt at action fantasy genre
The highly anticipated fantasy series Bagani set an explosive and social media trending premiere yesterday as it centred on unleashing the hero within and embarking on an epic adventure inside a world where courage, resilience, justice, hope, and love prevail.
Top billed by Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil, with Matteo Guidicelli, Sofia Andres, and Makisig Morales, it follows the journey of Lakas from the desert region, Ganda from the farm region, Lakam from the trade region, Dumakulem from the forest region, and Mayari from the sea region — normal individuals who suddenly turned heroes of Sansinukob.
Each one of them has a particular skill that makes them a cut above the rest. Apart from their skills, they also possess good hearts that are willing to sacrifice even themselves for their families and for their people. That is why Apo, the benevolent and wise deity of Sansinukob, bestowed on them powerful weapons —‘espada ni Minokawa,’ ‘pana ni Makiling,’ ‘palakol ni Bernardo Karpio,’ ‘arnis ni Liwliwa,’ and ‘kalasag ng Kataw’ — they need to become Baganis and battle the evil forces of the Sarimaw.
Will the Baganis succeed in their mission to protect and restore peace in Sansinukob?
Joining the cast of Bagani are Robert Seña, Ana Abad Santos, Rayver Cruz, Lara Quigaman, Enzo Pineda, Christian Vasquez, Mikylla Ramirez, and Joj Martin. It is the directed by Richard Arellano and Lester Pimentel under the production group of Star Creatives.
Primetime TV’s newest fantaserye Bagani airs after FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano on ABS-CBN or ABS-CBN HD (SkyCable ch 167). Catch up on the show’s latest episodes on iWanTV or skyondemand.com.ph for Sky subscribers.
