Shaban is Ramadan's best friend whom he met whilst serving as a marine in the Ottoman navy forces. But things get really complicated when Ramadan falls in love with Shaban's milk sister, Gulshen Sonofbubik.
This movie is a really funny movie, BUT if you are accustomed to Turkish suburban culture which was formed during 70's in great metro-pols such as Istanbul. Although its main theme is a universal one -love-, in order to understand its brilliant jokes,as I mentioned, you need to be accustomed to this culture. You can watch two of greatest artists of Turkish Cinema in this movie. Unlike other "jöns" in Turkish Cinema(Cuneyt Arkin, Kartal Tibet), Ilyas Salman and Sener Sen are great artists and showed great performance.
A small note about the director: This is the first, best and the "only good" film that this director produced. Probably it is not worth to watch his other films.(Except "Propaganda" maybe, in which Kemal Sunal and Metin Akpınar shows a pretty good performance)
