Our Mighty Yaya Film Trailer Review
What can be said about Our Mighty Yaya (2017) official movie trailer? Well, it is your typical light-hearted family film focusing on an exemplary nanny for children belonging to an uptight high class family. But of course, to emphasize the uniqueness of this role model of a nanny, they have to make her look ghoulish by making her skin tone darker, an improper set of teeth, and lacking the necessary education... everything of what you can expect from your stereotypical nanny figure from the province (caricature for comedic effect because why not). Well the only difference is that it is not mainly a dramatic film but don't misinterpret it as so as most of these kinds of film will have its fair share of moments that will thug on the heartstrings as what is expected of movies under this theme. The film will join the ranks of other nanny-themed titles like Anak (2000), Inang Yaya (2006), Yaya and Angelina: The Spoiled Brat Movie (2009), and the internationally screened and acclaimed "Ilo Ilo" (2013).
Initially, I thought that there would be more of this film under this theme (the exemplary nanny stories), but to my surprise only a few came from my basic search; that this genre of (family) drama was done to death just like the rich guy-poor girl or rich girl-poor guy romantic films. Or maybe that is just that, many of the films that we have seen usually from romance and horror have these basic stereotype. Or maybe ABS-CBN's popular "Please Be Careful With My Heart" television series has grown on everyone. Well at least that daytime soap didn't had the audacity to stereotype the nannies as uneducated ghoulish looking one. Maybe, most of those belonging to the middle class, and upper class grew up with nannies and can entirely relate to this theme. Even if they belong to the lower class, if they themselves are a nanny or their family member is an actual nanny, maybe this is what makes it relatable to them. The question is do the ugly nanny with a heart of gold makes for an interesting and entertaining film? Well, that is what might (or might not) be answered on Our Mighty Yaya. We'll make sure to observe and make a criticism of that as the years past by or if the local film studios decides to start milking such themes as from what we have seen so far they "mostly have been on the look out to revolutionize" film making in the Philippines..
