Starring Comedy and Box Office Queen Ai-Ai Delas Alas and versatile comedian and host Bayani Agbayani, there is no exception as it contains the ingredients of a sure blockbuster hit and pure Rom-Com feels.
What “Feelennial” Really Means?
Feelennial, a portmanteau of “feeling millennials,” is about middle-aged individuals who feel and act like millennials. They are your adorable titos and titas, who stumble into one misadventure after another as they try to adopt the lifestyle of the younger generation.
Ai-Ai plays the role of Madame Bato-bato, a rich single mom who has everything she needs except the attention of her only son Nico, played by actor-model Arvic Tan. She tries to do the activities that her millennial son is into to gain the latter’s attention. In one of her feelennial activities – online dating, she meets Chito (Bayani’s character), a rich bachelor who recently won a huge sum via lotto jackpot.
Their first encounter doesn’t turn out too well, and what ensues is a flurry of mishaps and misadventures, pitting De las Alas and Agbayani into funny, yet thought-provoking situations on how romance and family dynamic has changed in today’s society.
Ai-Ai and Bayani Great Chemistry
The #Unfiltered tandem of Ai Ai and Bayani is such a joyful thing to watch. It’s so natural for them to be in their respective roles as “Feelennials” and they can make you laugh effortlessly with their “burning” lines towards each other. One way of proving that Bayani and Ai Ai can rock this new generation, remaining the best comedians of all ages.
