In the interview on the double-DVD special edition of the film, Cem Yilmaz explains that the title of the film is not an abbreviation but that he was inspired from the name of a kind of popular Turkish sandwich made with meatballs (and hence the reference to the "gorali" (with gora) sandwich ordered by the unbelieving UFO magazine editor at the end of the film).

The number that Arif dials in jail on the ship doesn't match to the number that appears on the LCD screen, since there were a change in the main sponsors of the film. Both sponsors were GSM Operators. But at the filming sequence Telsim was the sponsor, however at the post production sequence it was Avea. See more »

Well, first of all, this movie is a good project. There is no science-fiction film in the history of Turkish cinema, and if you think about the budget, which was about 4 Mio. USD and nevertheless huge for Turkish proportions, George Lucas wasted a budget of 125 Mio USD for Star Wars Episode III, then it is the optimum of what has been created.
The story is no revolution, but no one ever expected that. Cem Yilmaz realised his vision of "Turks in space" and made his work well. His love for details is average.
To understand everything in that film, first you gotta be Turkish, since a big part of the humor is based on the street language that Cem Yilmaz is using perfectly. The second thing is, you have to know some US Science-Fiction movies like Star Wars, Matrix or Star Trek. Only the combination of these two requirements makes the movie really funny.
G.O.R.A is unusual to the Turkish public, so this is why some people didn't like it I think. I consider this work as new era of special fx in Turkish movies.
In the end, it is a solid Turkish space movie.
