Andres de Saya Wikipedia
Andres de Saya was first introduced as a form of comics, written by Carlo J. Caparas. Later on, in 1980, it was adapted into a film with Vic Vargas on the title role, and Gloria Diaz as his wife. After which, two parts of the said movie followed. The second and third part of the movie which was shown in 1982 and 1986, respectively, was titled, Andres de Saya (Mabagsik na daw!) and Anomalya ni... Andres de Saya with Vargas and Diaz reprising their roles.
In this sitcom, Cesar plays as Andres "Andy" Taguyod, a seemingly perfect peg of a tough, macho man. He works as a bouncer in a "gimik" bar and provides for his kin; he does not aspire to be rich but his ultimate dream is to marry a woman he really loves.
When he met Matilde "Mat" Golpe de Oro (Iza), Andres knew that he has found the woman of his dreams. Matilde came from a well-off family and is a title holder in many beauty pageants. Although she was not initially attracted to Andres, circumstances brought them to each other's arms in a shotgun wedding.
One night, Matilde ended up in Andres' bed due to drunkenness and although nothing really happened between them, Matilde's grandmother made a big deal out of it. Lola Coring, played by Ms. Gloria Romero, insisted that the two get married despite the fact that she does not approve of Andres for her granddaughter.
What happens to Andres and Matilde after their forced marriage? Will Andres be able to win the heart of his strong-willed wife and the respect of his haughty grandmother-in-law? Or will he just be contented being the second-in-command in their house?
Follow this classic example of a man who would do anything for love, or whom people would often label as "under de saya." And see how Andres turns from being every-inch-a-man to a husband who crumbles and only answers "Yes, babe?" to all of Matilde's demands—be it doing the laundry, washing the dishes or cleaning the house.Main cast
