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
When my friends convinced me to see this movie I was expecting a silly comedy because of it's trailer.But when the movie started it just took me in and didn't let me go until it ends.Especially the songs of this movie.They're sung by some of the greatest singers of Turkey and every song is so well placed into the movie that it blows you away.Probably the non-Turkish viewers won't get the songs' meanings so i think the subtitle should include the songs' lyrics too.This is also a very realistic movie that tells the path to become famous in Turkey.It's sometimes easy but mostly a long hard path to walk.So if you still have a chance to see this movie,see it.You won't regret it.
