I actually did not know that Sinan Cetin was the director of this movie. If he could go on making this movies he could have been best director today but apparently he's chosen to be richest.
Anyway, Cicek Abbas very nice window to 70' Turkey where immigration from rural areas to big cities boosted and new suburbs getting created.
Sakir (played by Sener Sen) is the driver and the owner of the bus, he's rude and senseless guy while Abbas (played by Ilyas Salman) is Sakir's helper in the bus and he's dreaming to get his own bus one day.
Abbas also represents the people who came to city in hope to save some money and return back to village, get married to girl he loves and start a better life. Most of them never returned though. Instead they turned the city into a big village.
Many scenes of this movie has a place in people's minds and hearts. This couple (Sakir and Abbas) argue each other all the time but both are very funny, every thing they say crafted well and makes you smile.
The movie gets you to cry some times too like good old Turkish movies. You see and feel the honesty and straight forwardness of Abbas and while he's suffering you're crying easily.
One of the best Turkish movies of all time.
