      Can two different people from two different worlds apart get together? A lot of stories have already answered that question, but perhaps the most popular story among them is Disney’s “High School Musical”. This made-for-TV movie follows the story of Troy Bolton (Zac Efron), a basketball jock, and Gabriella Montez (Vanessa Ann Hudgens), a certified beauty and brains. They got together once on a karaoke party during the New Year’s Eve party.

      Weeks later, they met again at East High School. Turns out that Gabriella is a transferee at East High, where Troy is studying and a part of the basketball varsity.

      Then the drama adviser Ms. Darbus announces the ongoing auditions for the winter musical.


      This is where the conflict arises: with Troy and Gabriella’s desire to join the musical, their separate lives became more pressing. Troy with his team, the East High Wildcats, running for the championship; and Gabriella is the secret weapon of the Chemistry Club for the Scholastic Decathlon.

      And it doesn’t stop there dramatic duo Sharpay and Ryan Evans (Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel respectively) are going at all costs for them to bag the lead role. I personally find the storyline a little too common, but I what I liked about High School Musical is the “the-going-gets-tough-the-tough-gets-going” attitude of the lead roles that gave the story their strongest point.

      There is one part that ...


      • they are about to give up, but they simply won’t allow that they wouldn’t push through the callbacks. The schemes that the different characters made up also strengthened the prevailing attitude in the story.

        The supporting roles (aka the ‘best friends’) helped in building up the character of the leads and the conflict on the plot. Thinking that they are losing their team’s best members (Troy and Gabriella), they also made a scheme to separate them, only to end up ’screwing up, big time’.

        Even Troy had his own scheme on how to sneak out of the basketball practice just to attend the auditions. And of course, the antagonist duo also had their scheme to ace

        Troy and Gabriella out of the musical.

        And of course, a musical won’t be a musical without songs and dancing. I personally like five (there are twelve in the whole movie) song and dance numbers there: the karaoke party featuring “Start of Something New”, the basketball practice featuring “Getcha’ Head in the Game”, Gabriella’s dramatic scene featuring “When There Was Me and You”, the callbacks scene with the song “Breaking Free” and the finale featuring “We’re All In This Together”.

        I personally recommend watching out for these scenes on the movie. Overall, the movie is loaded on light drama and happy dancing moments.

        There may be little glitches on them, but is way forgivable. No wonder it’s a big success for a TV-movie.
