Vic Sotto and Dawn Zulueta Headline Meant to Beh at MMFF

Just like every year, Octo Arts Films has a movie to offer featuring the Bossing himself. But unlike next year when they failed to get in to the festival, now they are back with a big bang as a different leading lady joins their lead comedian as headliner of the movie entitled Meant to Beh.

For the movie, bloggers were invited to a blogcon with Vic Sotto, Dawn Zulueta, JC Santos and Direk Chris Martinez attendibg the event. There are several celebrities included in the cast but only the three and their director.

It is not always that you get to do a video interview with Bossing Vic Sotto. I would have also interviewed Dawn but she already left when I was done with Bossing. You can watch the video on our official Facebook page at

Meanwhile, video coverage of the blogcon, from start to finish, are currently being uploaded at our official YouTube channel at

As usual, Vic was cool and composed at the Meant to Beh blogcon. He always projects himself as graciously decent eventhough he cracks a joke every now and then. His antics during the introduction started some laughter and consistently was there during the Q&A with the bloggers.

Their movie is also something new for the comedian since the plot deals with some family struggles specifically the "disenchantment" between husband and wife, and the temptations that surrounds.

Opposite Dawn Zulueta, plus an additional cast of younger actors, including child star Baste, and not to forget their usual extras from Eat Bulaga Dabarkads, the movie still somehow uses tried and tested formulas of showbiz.

Below is the official press release from the blogcon:

Meant To Beh Explores True Love’s Possibilities

Does true love stand the test of time? This is explored in “Meant To Beh” the latest blockbuster film starring Vic Sotto and Dawn Zulueta.

During the holiday season, happy families and loving relationships are highlighted amongst the merrymaking of the holidays. With Meant To Beh, moviegoers are treated to this funny and poignant story about the Balatbat family, where they can pick up timely lessons about life and love along the way. Middle-aged couple Antonio (Vic) and Andrea Balatbat (Dawn) try their best to raise their three children, Christian (JC Santos), Alex (Gabbi Garcia), and Riley (Baby Baste).

The Balatbats have a perfect family setup despite the fact that the couple was only forced by their parents to get married when they were younger. These and other issues arise through the years, creating challenges and hardships that threaten the harmony within the family and eventually lead to a point where the couple, realizing that they never really loved each other, decides to separate in order to find themselves.

This decision breaks their children’s hearts and they devise way to get their parents back together again despite both finding new respective partners. It has become their mission to get their parents to fall in love.

The family movie, which Dawn describes as “heartwarming”, is said to be the first “serious” comedy by Bossing Vic Sotto. He is very proud of the Filipino values that are highlighted, aside from the production’s entertainment value that will be enjoyed by audiences young and old. “There are no grand special effects this year, unlike the Enteng Kabisote series that we have presented in the past holiday seasons. It is a simple, relatable story that takes a closer look at today’s Filipino families and the values that we cherish.”

The movie, which also stars Sue Ramirez, Ruru Madrid, Andrea Torres, and Daniel Matsunaga is directed by Chris Martinez for Octoarts Films, M-Zet Productions and APT Entertainment.

Meant To Beh: Ika-Something na Utos will make its premiere in Philippine cinemas on December 25, 2017 as one of the eight official entries of the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival.
