"Budoy," not just your typical teleserye

Tonight is the premiere of the first advocacy-serye on Philippine TV on ABS-CBN. Entitled "Budoy," this teleserye talks about the life of a mentally disabled person named Budoy played by Gerald Anderson.

This family-oriented drama also stars Janice de Belen, Tirso Cruz III, Zsazsa Padilla, Mylene Dizon, Christian Vasquez, Jessy Mendiola, Enrique Gil, Ana Abad Santos, Dante Rivero, Gloria Sevilla and Barbara Perez. "Saan Darating ang Umaga" is the OST of the teleserye sang by Angeline Quinto.

I am glad that I was one of the lucky people who had the chance to see it first on the big screen before the regular airing of this teleserye on ABS-CBN. All I can say is that "Budoy" is not just a typical teleserye. There's something really special in "Budoy" which makes me feel that it's not that ordinary. It's for you to find out! Haha! 'Coz I am still searching for the right term for it.

Maybe it's hard to accept illnesses, handicaps, etc. but it's still much harder to lose someone in the family. I actually cried lots of times while watching this teleserye. It's common to most of TV series to show good values, importance of family, love, etc. But in this teleserye, you will really love the character "Budoy" which will teach you on acceptance especially on mentally-challenged person like "Budoy." Despite of cruelty he faced and the disability he had, he can still manage to smile and show the world love.

Tonight will be the start of "Budoy" on ABS-CBN right after 100 Days to Heaven. Don't dare miss it!

This is the full trailer of "Budoy"

Maganda ang pagkakaroon ng mga teleseryeng katulad ng "Budoy" upang mabuksan ang mga isipan natin na huwag husgahan ang mga "special" people. Hindi nila ginusto na maging ganoon sila, tao din sila na ngangailangan ng pagmamahal at pagkalinga katulad natin at hindi dapat kutyain. Base sa trailer, maganda ang teleserye na ito! Kudos to the producer, director and the cast of "Budoy"!

Papanoorin ko via internet ang Budoy, mukhang napakaganda! Sana mabuksan ang isipan ng ating kababayan at huwag idiscriminate ang mga "special" people like Budoy! - Annie

Having dealt with so many special kids, i ws looking forward to watch budoy... I thougt for once magiging sensible ang advocacy serye na ito... Hind pala. It is jst plain offensive!! Hindi naman applicable sa real life, and nakaka offend knowing na impossible ang scenes na pinoy - cliche na dinagdag sa show. Hindi nakakatuwa if you live with special needs people in ur house. Ignorante lang natutuwa sa show na ito. So dis appointed, for once akala ko may show na mag eeducate sa lahat n pinoy on hw to deal with special needs peoplead how the govt should give more emphasis on helping them and educating the public about it.
