KAKABAKABA KA BA? was a comeback film of sort for LVN after being inactive for several years. This satirical comedy-musical focuses on two pairs of lovers who get caught in the crossfire between dope-trading Japanese and Chinese agents.

Perky cast includes Christopher de Leon, Charo Santos, Jay Ilagan and Sandy Andolong, as the lovers being hounded by the Japanese traders in order to recover an opium ingeniously hidden in a cassette tape that landed in the pocket of De Leon.
Running for their lives, the lovers reach Baguio and enter a church for refuge, only to find out that it is the Japanese dope-traders' headquarter, where fake nuns and priests are used for the distribution of opium.
Delgado, second from right won the URIAN Best Supporting Actor for his role as the Japanese syndicate ring leader.

Uproarious fight ensues when the Chinese agents penetrate the Japanese headquarter.

With the mad chase over, lovers decide to get married.

Undoubtedly, one of the finest Filipino comedy films ever made, KAKABAKABA KA BA? is refreshing, literate, and very engrossing. It says more about our society than many of the so-called important films of recent vintage. In fact, it "was considered by critics as one of the landmark films of the 1980's in its absurd, comical, and irreverent treatment of an otherwise serious theme about foreign control of the Philippine economy… had to hurdle the censors, who originally sought to ban the fil m for its alleged racist attacks against the Japanese and the Chinese." [CCP Encyclopedia: Film]

This clever satire with appropriate music, handsome production, and superb performances won the URIAN Awards for Best Director, Supporting Actor (Delgado), Editing, Music, and Sound.
