If I were to choose the right word to summarize it on a whole it would be this : TRAGEDY !!
How much I was praying let this not happen in any ones life . It was so realistic . The actors were fab. The story was so cruel yet really unexpected and highly emotional. The scenes were shot well and the climax was reasonably convincing . I could modestly give it 3.5 stars on 5

Well, for starters I do not get the ending, AT ALL. And then I found out that there is a another version of this, a drama series, and that this is just like a summary of the series. I would PROBABLY watch the series just to see if it will be any different from the movie. Hopefully, it has a better ending.

Also, I felt like the actors are lacking something. A spark perhaps? I don’t feel that they are meant to be paired. It’s like the pairing was forced. No “kilig” factor or romantic excitement coming from them.

So, I’ve been telling you what I don’t like about it but there is actually one thing I like about this. And that is the fact that it is very realistic. The story is good, sad but good, and it’s something that you wouldn’t want to happen to you and your lover. It’s always a ‘so-near-yet-so-far” kind of ordeal. A “we’re-destined-but-we-can-never-be” kind of relationship. It’s very hard.

This movie is a short version of the drama. Even though I felt like the dramas end wasnt good enough and needed continuing. I hoped this movie will be it. But no.

Story is cruel and real life like.

Acting is good, but I think they should have picked other actors.

Music is good and fittes the movie.

I wouldnt rewatch it as im not a rewatcher.

Overall its a good movie. But not my cup of tea.
