Coco Martin on the success of ‘Maybe This Time’: ‘Hindi lang nila alam kung gaano ako kaligaya’


053014-coco_main.jpgCoco Martin admitted that he felt overwhelmed when he learned that his movie Maybe This Time scored big at the box office on its first day of showing. The movie earned 20 million on its opening day.

Hindi ako makapaniwala, kahit kanina hanggang pag-uwi sa bahay halos hindi ako makatulog. Kaya nga sabi ko hindi lang nila alam kung gaano ako kaligaya na hindi ko inakala na makakagawa ako ng ganitong klaseng pelikula," Coco said. 

When asked if what he thinks is the reason why people chose to watch their film, he commented, "Siyempre maganda ‘yung konsepto, siyempre baka na excite din sila sa unang tambalan namin ni Sarah (Geronimo) sa big screen at sabi ko nga hindi lang dahil ako ‘yung artista na umaarte dito at kasama ako sa pelikula, kundi talagang napakaganda ng pelikula.”

He added, "Sabi ko nga kikiligin ka, papa-inlovin ka at paiiyakin ka, kumbaga kung gusto mo talaga ng parang bago at makakapagbigay ng inspirasyon sa buhay mo at sa puso mo itong pelikulang ‘to, saktong-sakto para sa ’yo."

On his favorite scene in the film, Coco relayed that he really likes the ending. “‘Yung dulo sobra akong kinilig. Sabi ko nga kahit ako nga artista sobrang kinilig. Pero sabi ko masaya eh, kikiligin ka at papaiyakin ka."

Coco shared that some of his and Sarah’s dialogue in the film, especially in the ending, were uttered spontaneously. “Yung mga dialogue namin, ‘yung adlib-adlib namin, kami na ‘yun eh. Kumbaga sabi ko nga basta si direk, inupo lang kami, [sabi niya] ‘Bahala na kayo ha,’ kumbaga ‘yun na tinatawag na chemistry,” he said.
