Storyline

Having failed incredibly many times in attempts to find a big talent and to be rich, the two producers (played by Haluk Bilginer and Cem Ozer) and their only two contracted singers (played by comedian Ata Demirer and Ragip Savas) struggle to clean their debts and make their dreams come true, no matter what happens. Being in a tight spot, they rely on a gastarbeiter who they hear sing over the phone. They desperately invite him to Turkey. Then, out of the blue, an inspirational lady, Firuze, shows up and supports the gang both morally and financially. With the support they receive from Firuze, the gang start walking, slowly but decisively, towards their aim. Just when they think they really can turn things around, they learn that Firuze is actually a schizophrenic and they did it all by themselves. Written by hakan ergin

Best movie, I've ever seen!

I can't find word to explain the feelings while watching this movie... It is a bit musical, a bit movie; also combines tragedy, comedy and whatever other feelings are there... It also gives an idea about the power of dark forces over music sector in Turkey; and also the cheaters in it. Maybe; "Hope" and "Success" words can be a roof for summary of this story! Congragulations Ezel Akay!

If it is needed to tell about the techniques; really similar to Chicago maybe; but also original sounds and colors. I have to say for foreign watchers: All singers in the movie are real. They are star in Turkey; and most of them is as old as Turkish Pop Music comes to world. (For Ex: Erol Büyükburç is one of the first examples of Turkish Pop Singer) Not only pop music; many genre of songs are played in movie. (Really successful soundtracks!)
