Crisanto (Fernando Poe Jr.) is a valiant man from the streets of Tondo beloved by its people for his acts of vigilantism and his Robin Hood-like generosity to its poor. Bador (Ramon Revilla), on the other hand, is an influential man in Cavite's underworld whose tight grip is recognized in the entire province. Crisanto and Bador are good friends dating back to their incarceration at the New Bilibid Prison.

Their friendship will be put to the ultimate test as the Kingpin of Tondo is pitted against his staunch ally, the Don of the Cavite gangland, by a cabal of men from both Tondo and Cavite eager to oust both from their respective thrones. Now the best of friends become the worst of enemies as Tondo collides with Cavite.



The BSH Films-produced film was released on January 30, 1986[3]

Aborted remakeEdit

Off the heels of the success Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story, its lead star ER Ejercito expressed a desire to do a remake of Iyo ang Tondo, Kanya ang Cavite.[4] The film would have starred Ejercito as Crisanto and his El Presidente co-star Cesar Montano as Bador.[4] The said remake would have been shot after El Presidente wrapped up.[4] However, the remake never came to fruition as Ejercito instead moved on to other projects, Boy Golden: Shoot to Kill,[5] and Muslim Magnum .357: To Serve and Protect,[6] respectively. The latter film was a remake of the 1986 film starring Fernando Poe Jr.[6]
