Manila, Philippines – The team up of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, otherwise known as KathNiel, proves to be a blockbuster magnet. Their newest movie, “The Hows of Us” (THOU) is on its way to become an another mega hit after long queues and sold out seats were observed in most theaters.
But the chemistry between the lead stars is just one ingredient of a blockbuster hit. The cinematography, direction, good acting and portrayal, and an excellent story line that draws interest from viewers, all make up a complete recipe for a great movie. And the new KathNiel flick has all that components.
THOU is a movie about how a couple struggles to stick together in their relationship amidst several obstacles and misunderstandings. The movie is deemed to be the most mature role, in terms of acting, of the two leads. As Director Cathy Garcia-Molina puts it, this film would be the answer to those who doubt the capacity of KathNiel in terms of acing a full-fledged acting.
Netizens who have watched the movie were all praises for the lead actors, especially Kathryn. Some say, it is her best so far, while Daniel has always been praised for his great acting.
Slow clap for our best actress, Kathryn Bernardo. She nailed it. Simplest plot but definitely the best. And Primo did a great job, I can see Daniel in Primo. We’re in full tears when the movie ended. Congrats Direk Cathy, Team THOU, and of course KathNiel!#TheHowOfUsNowShowing

The character journeys in this movie rivals that of the best Hollywood movies of the same genre – I would line it up with the Atonements & Before Sunrise trilogy.
It affects you long after the screen has faded pitch black #TheHowOfUsNowShowing
