Review Rating:


The title of the movie "Paraiso" (meaning Paradise) is simply what GK (Gawad Kalinga) has been to the masses as the grassroots movement is radically rebuilding the country one family at a time. The movie highlights three stories of ordinary people who have answered the call to be a hero for others and how GK has touched, inspired and transformed their lives forever.

The movie is the first of its kind whose making in itself captures the very essence of GK, the "bayanihan" spirit or being heroes for one another. Mainstream movie producers (the likes of Butch Jimenez, Tony Gloria and Tony Tuviera), actors (the likes of Maricel Soriano, Cesar Montano, Ricky Davao, Carmi Martin and Michael V.), and entertainment executives (the likes of Bobby Barreiro), all waived their fees for GK. The production people and vendors likewise sacrificed and did their own share of GK padugo (bleed for the cause) in getting this movie made.

This movie trilogy, which features three powerful stories of heroism, brings to center stage the mission and vision of GK in reshaping the image of the new Filipino; cultivating, transforming, tilling the centuries-old mindset of the Filipino; and finally calling and challenging everyone to reach out, to a higher cause, a nobler calling of rebuilding a nation by rebuilding each other. Hence the GK battlecries of "Less for Self, More for Others, Enough for All", "No more Poverty, No more Slums" and "No One Left Behind."
