The film has become a big hit among Netizens for its quotable “hugot” lines.



The romantic comedy hit That Thing Called Tadhana starring Angelica Panginaban and JM de Guzman continues to take over Philippine cinema and the hearts of millions of Filipino movie fans across the globe.

Earning over 100 million pesos in less than two weeks of its release, the low-key film first had a limited run in November 2014 as part of Cinema One Originals Film Festival.

The movie directed by Antoinette Jadaone depicts the story of heartbroken Mace Castillo (Angelica Panganiban) who meets Anthony Lagdameo (JM de Guzman) at an airport in Italy on her way back to the Philippines. On a whim, the two complete strangers go on a trip to Baguio for Mace to “find herself” after suffering from a break up with her boyfriend of eight years.

The film has become a big hit among Netizens for its quotable “hugot” lines. Angelica was extremely overwhelmed by the strong support, but she also called out those who accessed the pirated movie online and watched pirated dvds.

She took to Twitter to appeal to her followers that piracy can cost celebrities their job. She asked for respect and support for the industry. Her performance in That Thing Called Tadhana earned Angelica a Best Actress award from the Gawad Tanghal and Cinema One Originals Film Festival.
