PASAY CITY, Philippines — Celebrity cast of Isang Araw, Ikatlong Yugto agree that the film is a must-watch for its extraordinary theme.
Veteran Actor and Rescuer Jeffrey Santos expressed, “Hindi kasi lahat ng pelikula yun ang binibigay eh, normally ang lesson ng pelikula is human nature. It’s very seldom na word of God…not many Filipino movies are done like that. It’s a good thing na si Kuya Daniel nag-iisip ng ganung klaseng forte.”
(Because not all movies offer the [Words of God]. Normally, the moral lesson of a movie is about human nature. It’s very seldom that the Word of God is the main topic… not many Filipino movies are done like that. It’s a good thing that Brother Daniel Razon thought of making this kind of film.)
Budding actress Michelle Vito commended, “Dapat naman talaga siguro na sa lahat ng pinapanuod natin may about God kasi yun ang maganda sa pakiramdam, eh. And kung galing talaga kay God, yung mga message galing sa Biblia, yun ang tamang lesson na binibigay sa atin.”
(Maybe it really should be like that that what we watch have contents about God because that is what can make us feel good. And if the content is really from God, the messages are based from the Holy Bible, and that is the right lesson we can get.)
Each of them shared the lesson they’ve learned from being part of the production and after watching the final version of the movie that was written, starred and directed by Kuya Daniel Razon.
“Respeto pa rin sa mga magulang dapat andoon pa rin,” Ms. Jackie Aquino shared one of the lessons she learned.
(Respect for parents, should always be there.)
Santos added, “Yung simplest na eksena nabibigyan ng aral ng moral values. I am thankful and blessed na makasama ako sa pelikulang tulad noon na nagpapasa ng ganung klaseng aral.”
(Even the simplest scene in the movie, you can get moral values. I am thankful and blessed that I became part of a movie that imparts life lessons.)

Around 2,000 spectators flocked the sponsors’ night at Marriott Grand Ballroom on Tuesday to witness the premier showing of the movie.
Everyone was overwhelmed to have first viewing and some even shared how the film has touched them.
Audience Kevin Vitug explained, “Yung mga turo sa kanya ng tatay na kailangan mo talagang magpakababa, hindi mo kailangang maging mayaman, pakinggan mo lang yung sinasabi ng magulang mo sa’yo—tumatak sa akin yun.”
(The lessons on humility that his father has taught him, wherein you don’t necessarily have to be rich, you just need to listen to the teachings of your parents — that stood out for me.)
While another viewer, Mark Talagtag, shared, “Yung isang natutunan ko doon yung kay Wendell at Lara na hindi mo maaayos ang isang bagay pag parehas kayong tama. Minsan kailangan kunin mo yung pagkakamali para magkasundo kayo para malaman nyo ang tama.”
(One thing I learned from the characters of Wendell and Lara is that, you cannot fix an argument if both of you claim to be right. Sometimes you need to admit you’re wrong to patch things up.)
And Reyna Ladimora shared, “Palaging may takot sa Dios kahit sa pulubi dapat laging may awa.”
(We should always be God-fearing and always have a heart for the poor.)

The Isang Araw film director, writer and lead actor Kuya Daniel Razon said, the movie offers messages that will open the minds of children, parents, and even ordinary people to things that seem to have been forgotten by many in today’s society.
“Kasi ang tao kapag may takot ka sa Dios at may kinikilala kang Dios, at kinikilala mo ang Dios na makapangyarihan sa lahat, alam mo na nakikita ka Niya kahit saan ka nandoon at Siya ang nakakaalam ng puso at isip mo, so ito ay isang bagay na dapat gagawin mo yung tama may nakakakita man sa’yo o wala dahil He is always watching.”
(When a person has fear of God and acknowledges God and that God is the Almighty, and you know that God sees what you do all the time, and that God knows the content of your heart and mind, this will discipline you to do good with or without people around because you know that God is always watching.)— GRACE CASIN / UNTV News and Rescue
