"Tingnan natin kung sino ang unang bibigay" -- Michelle Madrigal on the Garuda-Falco affair
January 30 2014
Ang paglalagay ng kaunting lambing kapag lalaki ang kanyang kausap ay paraan ni Michelle para mapaglaruan ang character ni Garuda.
Adarna is the story of Ada (Kylie Padilla) who is prophesized to be the most powerful healer in Pugad Sanghaya. As she discovers the path towards fulfilling her fate, she meets three men - celebrity basketball player Migo (Geoff Eigenmann), street-smart kanto boy Bok (Benjamin Alves), and fearless warrior Falco (Mikael Daez) – each one needing her in his own way.
Set in Pugad Sanghaya, there rules the despiteful Uwakro (Dante Rivero). One day, he gets seriously ill and orders Garuda (Michelle Madrigal) to look for the group of healers known as Adarna. One of those is Larka (Jean Garcia), who is currently pregnant, and husband Kestrel. A prophecy will be declared that her baby will become the most powerful healer in Pugad Sanghaya. Due to unfortunate circumstances, Garuda’s troop chases them which causes Kestrel’s death. Larka, together with her daughter, decides to secretly enter the world of the mortals.
Still worried that Garuda’s troop might follow them; Larka changes her name to Lupe, covers her wings and never uses her healing powers. Instead, Lupe and Ada sell bottles of herbal medicines outside the Quiapo Church.
One day, Ada witnesses a car accident of a young boy named Migo. Ada sings to him and to the people’s surprise, Migo slowly wakes and stands up as of nothing happened. Thinking that Garuda might track them, Lupe decides to fly away by herself and leave Ada to her suitor Simon (Jestoni Alarcon).
After years of longing for her mother, Ada now lives with Simon together with wife Jinky (Maureen Larrazabal) and stepdaughter Janelle (Chynna Ortaleza). Ada crosses path with Migo and eventually develop feelings for each other. Migo reveals his mother's sickness and asks for help from Ada. She agrees to sing to his mother not knowing that her voice reverberates in Pugad Sanghaya.
Unfortunately, one of the members of Garuda’s troop named Bok gets to know of Ada’s ability and tries to get close to her. Despite orders from Garuda, Bok keeps his bad intentions and instead, makes friends with Ada until he slowly falls in love with her.
On her 18th birthday, Ada’s wings will finally spread. Just right in time, Falco comes and explains to Ada her real identity. Ready to guard and fight her love for Ada, Falco will be the one to teach Ada to hold weapons and defend herself from Garuda and her troop.
Among the three men, who will truly love and accept Ada? Who will betray her? Will she be able to find her mother Lupe?
Under the helm of director Ricky Davao, Adarna premieres on November 18 on GMA Telebabad.
