Nadine Lustre and Sam Concepcion reel us in as Viva Entertainment gave us our first look into ‘Indak’!

Expected to be one of the biggest dance musical films of the year, ‘Indak’ already got us stunned from just a 27-second teaser! It showed Nadine Lustre and Sam Concepcion dancing in Korea. Though short, the teaser did well for its purpose, to make us all want to watch the film. Check it out!


I think we can all agree that there is really a shortage of dance musical films here in the Philippines. Even musicals, in general, is not so popular in the country. We think this is mainly because it involves a lot of technicalities to get it right with musicals. We have seen short song numbers or performances in some films, but if it’s not out of sync, it’s out of tune. Even more so with dance musicals, because in addition to having a nice plot, they would have to choose actors with not just the face value and acting skills, but the chops to make it work.

With this being said, we believe ‘Indak’ would be a pleasant breath of fresh air! I think this would be the first time in many years that we’ll get to see a dance musical that is Pinoy-made. Of course, we loved ‘Step Up’, ‘Jump In’, and all the likes, but it’s nice to be able to see what the Filipinos have got when it comes to this genre of film and how it would play out in the Philippine setting! I mean, okay, some parts of the film were shot in Korea, but it’s how the Filipino spirit can be shown in the form of dance that is really exciting for all of us.

Nadine Lustre

For this type of film, they certainly chose the right actor to cast! Not only is Nadine fully capable of acting, but she also sings and dances, too. Actually, she does those quite well. If you think about it, she’s really one of the logical choices to consider for the role, along with Sam Concepcion, who, if we’re gonna be honest, is as talented. Sam’s been in the scene for a long time already, and when we say ‘total performer’ his name wouldn’t be far off the list.

We’re just freshly moving on from Nadine bagging 4 major awards in the last Myx Music Awards, and her being hailed as FAMAS’ best actress. But Nadine just keeps surprising us! All this seems to say that this is her time. And frankly, we couldn’t complain. Seeing as how goal-driven and talented the girl is, she deserves it all. And we all have been waiting for her next film after ‘Ulan‘!

Seeing the ‘Indak’ teaser makes us feel excited for Nadine’s willingness to try new things, new roles that are out of her comfort zone. She does not let herself be defined by a certain image, and she proves that she can be anything that she wants to be. Fans are quick to commend the star too, for this new milestone!

We’re definitely watching this film! Are you excited about ‘Indak’, too? Share us your thoughts on the comments down below! Or hit us up on our Facebook or Twitter @UDoUPh.
