Storyline

Late 19th century in Alexandria. Two traditionally rival Turkish families, "Seferoglu"s and "Tellioglu"s are competing for the "Green Valley". The winner will be determined by Daver Bey, who has a beautiful young daughter, Leyla. Both families try to arrange a marriage between a man from their family and Leyla, so that Daver Bey will be inclined to give the green valley to his "relatives". Tellioglus, who are behind in the race, desperately find a final solution: They will fake their idiotic butler, Saban, as the highest ranked Ottoman soldier in Egypt: Tosun Pasha. Written by Ali Riza Bolukbasi

Excellent!!!
8 September 2004 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

4 hours ago, I'd watched that brilliant film again (I don't know how many times I'd watched it, maybe 100 or more). And I'm still having stomach-ache while laughin' at that film. I know, some of you will think that I'm crazy and insane. But the truth is There are still thousands of people who don't get bored while watching it.

Another interesting fact is about Kemal Sunal(r.i.p). He wrote a thesis about himself and his films in the university (while he was 50 or older). He tried to explain how could people were still laughing at his films even they'd watched it a hundred times. (I haven't read it yet)

In Tosun Pasa, you'll admire the talents of Kemal Sunal and Sener Sen (another great actor from Turkey).

And don't forget to checkout Sabanoglu Saban and Sut Kardesler.
