Several Kapamilya celebrities took to social media to laud the acting chops of Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards in Hello, Love, Goodbye following the film's premiere night on Tuesday, July 30.
On Twitter, Angelica Panganiban described the tandem's on-screen presence as simply "powerful."
She added, "Nagustuhan ko yung Hello, Love, Goodbye. Given na magaling si Kath. First time ko makita si Alden umarte. Ang galing niya! Ayokong matapos yung movie kasi gusto ko pa sila makita sa mga eksena."
Edward Barber, who came to support his love team partner Maymay Entrata, said that the movie is not your ordinary love story, but rather a perfect depiction of a dreamer's life.
He wrote on Instagram, "Sometimes when you watch a movie or read a book, you think, 'Ah, alam ko na kung anong ending nito.' And at that point, nawawala ang excitement. But watching #HelloLoveGoodbye last night was different. And it took me a few seconds to realize why."
"It’s not just a movie or a story.. it’s life. There’s nothing over dramatized, there’s not big, life changing twist that changes the whole movie. Because that’s not what life is. It brings to life the life of an OFW. The struggle, the heart, the strength needed. The love, the pain, the hope."
"The strange thing is that I’m not usually someone who really enjoys a love story. But this isn’t just a love story, it’s a life story. It shows the beauty of having dreams. And maybe that’s something some of us lack in this day and age. But if all of this for some reason doesn’t interest you, then maybe a group of amazing actors will, not to mention the awesome cinematography."
He also shared how happy he is for Maymay, adding, "You deserve all of this. Chuma."
Miles Ocampo said she's "so proud" of Kathryn, while Juan Miguel Severo hopes for a Best Actor in a feature film nomination for Alden.
