3 Days 2 Nights In Poblacion - Of Clubs, Alcohol, and Love

When we say Poblacion, many would think of their barangay which is the center of towns and cities but recently it means the party capital located in Makati which features a lot of places to eat, drink, party, play and get wild. 

3 Days 2 Nights in Poblacion is a love and friendship movie which happens in the tempting and alluring district of Poblacion. Charlie (Jasmine) and Gabbi (Barbie) are best friends who are now meeting again after a long time and supposed to have just a farewell party but ended up with extending their stay and rebook the flight.

This opportunity brings in another character Javi (JM de Guzman) who is a common love interest of the two. They went on a bar-hopping adventure which leads them more than food and drinks, but also weird encounters, on-the-spot drag, and eventually opening themselves up to each other.

Indeed, the depictions of the places were accurate, yet they can also get wilder and darker if they dared. Performances of the cast is indeed entertaining with their antics but sometimes it can stray quite far from the plot and loses its essence. 

They can make the movie more exciting with a little bit of exaggeration and commotion in the streets of Poblacion, but I think budget only permits them to go on a small-scale chaos.  Though I was also hoping that JM's character would have more involvement in the story rather than going in and out of the plot. 

Overall, it was enjoyable film which anchors on how people relate to the experience of Poblacion and the people in it. Though the district itself is already an adventure and more things can be showcased and utilized to make it like a "hangover" movie with something excitingly absurd  story.

3 Days 2 Nights in Poblacion also stars Kakai Bautista, Mercedes Cabral, and Lady Morgana and directed by RC delos Reyes. Rated R-13 by the MTRCB and produced by Black Cap Pictures  which you can interact on FacebookInstagramYouTube, and TikTok. Join the conversation online using the hashtag #3Days2NightsInPoblacion.
