Tosun Pasha


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

You gotta know Turkish...
12 October 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

One of the funniest Turkish movies Tosun Pasa requires that it must be seen in its original language Turkish... Unfortunately, if a non-Turkish speaker tries to enjoy the movie via subtitles, s/he will probably fail so. Besides, the movie will appear to be absurd. However, for Turkish people, it is a golden classic as can be seen from the ratings. Kemal Sunal and Sener Sen who were the most famous comedians of that time resembles Jack Lemon and Walter Matthau or maybe Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin. They have many other movies acting together where Kemal Sunal plays the dumb but the lucky one and Sener Sen plays the person frustrated by the acts of the other and unlucky one. "Hababam Sinifi" is another wonderful movie of this couple...
