The 2nd PNP Film Festival is on!, Last March 19, 2012, this said Film Festival was launched in coordination of Police Community Relations Group(PCRG) at PNP Multi-Purpose Hall, Camp Crame, Quezon City. Some college students showcased their talents in the field of film making, each movie entry features positive, and encouraging police stories to promote the Philippine National Police(PNP) as protector, defender and friend of people and to uplift the credibility and good image of our police force.
I was invited to watch one of the entries in this film festival entitled…” Bayani ang Tatay Ko”, produced by M&N Films.
SPO3 Nicanor Corpuz portrayed by Bayani Agbayani, a dedicated cop, a loving husband to his wife Susan portrayed by Yayo Aguila, and a good father to his son, Adrian, portrayed by Yogo Singh.
SPO3 Nicanor Corpuz’s lives in a very simple life, with a happy family until an incident happened that change their lives on a different turn. Taning, portrayed by Rommel Montano, a toughie, who came from a very influential family went to their station. Apparently, Taning’s videokarera business was shut down by one of his police colleague, SPO1 Joey Ponce also refuses to accept a bribe. Taning was furious, leading him to hostage SPO2 Pinky Madrigal portrayed by Jing Javier. SPO3 Nicanor Corpuz was forced to defend his colleague by shooting Taning.
Nick was suspended from service and he turned to selling “isaw” to make ends meet. Failing to do so, his wife Susan decided to go to Hongkong to work as a domestic helper. To help him in his business, Susan sent his brother, Ading (Gene Padilla) to help Nick tend to the isaw business. But the former cop realized that he is not cut for business, so he asked for his ninong, Col. Roberto Ugarte to give him an assignment. Colonel Ugarte referred him to the city hall where he worked as a traffic enforcer. As a traffic enforcer, Nick has learned to be happy with his new job because he wears a uniform and arrests violators. It was at this time when he was informed that his colleague, Ponce has remained missing since the precinct incident; SPO1 Fernandez had been looking for him. Worse, his wife Susan called to tell him she was victimized by an illegal recruiter.
All these tribulations that had happened to Nick and his family occurred very untimely. Witness how will a typical Filipino family face these challenges in a comedic and a bit of dramatic way with a sting of action to highlight the story.
Yes, there may be some crooked cops in our country , but not all of them. There are still good, honest and dedicated cops in our police force. It is just sad that people’s thinking about our police force is generalized. One bad cop, means all of them are bad. No… this isn’t true. Being a cop is an honorable job, the police force is also risking their lives to protect the citizen and keep the peace and order in our country. I Salute you!
