5 reasons why we shouldn’t miss Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit

Gerry Plaza March 24,2019 11:52 AM

Rarely do we witness a grand melodrama on the late morning block, given that in recent years we were treated to light romances and heartwarming tales.

Premiering on Monday, March 25, Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit shall satisfy our endless cravings for cathartic and grandiose dramatic scenes, pieced together by a stellar cast and a remarkable production team.

Here’s what to expect in this surefire hit teleserye:

1. Sophia Reola’s first lead dramatic role

Kidseryes, or dramas that feature children playing lead roles, have always touched our hearts through the years. But Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit will take a leap further by having more intense, heartbreaking dramatic scenes that involve its central character, MikMik, played by the 10-year-old Sophia Reola. This is Sophia’s biggest break—her first lead dramatic role after kiddie comical stints on Goin’ Bulilit and Team Yey! With her obvious dramatic flair seen on teasers of the show, Sophia will make viewers sympathize and commiserate with her heart-tugging character facing such a pitiful plight.

2. Kaye Abad’s teleserye comeback

We last saw Kaye Abad in 2014’s Two Wives and had since been focused on settling down and starting a family. She had been lauded for her past performances in teleseryes, specifically mother roles that were very fitting. In her return to the drama scene, Kaye portrays a central character in her first teleserye in four years—Ella, the loving mother of Sophia Reola’s MikMik, whose tragic fate becomes turning point of the narrative.

3. Cristine Reyes’ first kontrabida role

Cristine Reyes, on the other hand, is marking her first major role in a teleserye since 2016’s Tubig at Langis. We all witnessed Cristine depicting protagonist roles that we empathize with—from a third wheel and runaway lass searching for her identity to a mistaken mistress and a deceived girlfriend who fought for her love. This time, she will portray her first antagonist role in a teleserye: Katrina, the dreadful aunt who’ll make life miserable for MikMik—a portrayal we excitedly anticipate.

4. Compelling narrative

Watching a poor girl desperately pleading a rich, arrogant step-grandmother to help her leukemia-stricken mom and being firmly rejected and led out was really a heartbreaking sight. And this scene from the Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit teaser shows how much the story is so compelling to watch. Its well-conceived and written narrative should offer the most explosive plot twists and scenes that will captivate and enthrall viewers.  

5. Outstanding cast


From the charming and impressive child Sophia Reola and seasoned actresses Cristine Reyes, Kaye Abad, and Matet de Leon to admired actors RK Bagatsing, Enzo Pineda, and Keempee de Leon, and luminaries Pilar Pilapil, Dante Rivero, Ces Quesada, and Leo Rialp, Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit offers an outstanding cast we eagerly await to see.  They will surely give riveting performances viewers won’t easily forget.

Catch this gripping and moving teleserye set to enliven our morning viewing. Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit premieres on Monday, March 25, before It’s Showtime.
