Basta't Kasama Kita is a 1995 romantic-comedy film directed by Jose Javier Reyes and starring Aga Muhlach, Dayanara Torres, and Paolo Contis. The film follows the unlikely romance between Aga Muhlach's character, Tony, and Dayanara Torres' character, Ana. The story begins with Tony arriving in Manilla to work as a medical representative. On his first day, he has an encounter with Ana, a free-spirited artist whose van breaks down on the side of the road. Despite their initial bickering, Tony offers to help Ana with her van and drives her to her exhibition.

Intrigued by her unique perspective on life, Tony finds himself drawn to Ana despite their differing personalities. Ana, on the other hand, is not looking for a relationship and often pushes Tony away as she struggles with her own personal demons.

As their relationship deepens, Tony and Ana must navigate the challenges of their own personal traumas and insecurities while trying to make their love work. Things become even more complicated when Paolo Contis' character, Ojay, enters the picture as Ana's ex-boyfriend who wants to win her back.

The film is a heartwarming exploration of love, loss, and redemption. It features some stunning cinematography, particularly during the scenes where Tony and Ana travel to the countryside to escape the city's hustle and bustle. The film is also buoyed by solid performances from the lead actors, particularly Aga Muhlach, who delivers a nuanced and layered portrayal of Tony's character.

One of the standout features of the film is its soundtrack. The film's theme song, also titled "Basta't Kasama Kita," is an upbeat and catchy tune that perfectly captures the film's romantic and lighthearted tone. The film also features several other memorable tracks, including "Sa Aking Puso" by Dingdong Avanzado and "Muntik Na Kitang Minahal" by Carol Banawa.

Despite its clichéd premise, Basta't Kasama Kita manages to rise above the usual rom-com fare with its authentic and heartfelt portrayal of its characters. The film strikes a perfect balance between romance, comedy, and drama and leaves a lasting impression thanks to its memorable characters and engaging storyline.

Overall, Basta't Kasama Kita is a must-watch for fans of Filipino cinema and anyone looking for a feel-good romantic comedy. It's the perfect film to curl up with on a lazy Sunday afternoon and is sure to leave you with a smile on your face.
