Cem Yilmaz, who is the funniest man of Turkiye, has broke another record with this film (with its hilarious and creative scenes of course). Unfortunately, for non-Turkish ppl, like most (even all) of Turkish films, many humours in these scenes were lost, since mostly attributions are about a life of a very classical and easterner Turkish person and his comments about Turkish social, political and cultural life. You will also childish joke scenes which I also didn't enjoy, too. I don't know, but, this must be his way of filming, on the contrary, his shows never make concessions about quality.
Another subject is don't expect a great visual scenes, as this is not a Hollywood film which one of the richest governments in the world supports financially, on the other hand, this is just a Turkish film (not the best one) which a company accepted to be the sponsor of limitedly.
Nevertheless, don't get disappointed yet. The film is more than 2 hours and each 5 minutes include at least one thing to laugh(for all). Well, this is no different indeed for non-Turkish speakers to watch this film or for me to watch "how i met your mother" episodes. I find "how i met your mother" as the funniest show ever, but, sometimes there are a few jokes American-ish. So I think it will mostly make you laugh, while it is important to watch it with a valid subtitle to understand every single joke, as this movie was filmed mostly to make people laugh.
Such a very small explanation for non-Turkish speakers; Ridvan Dilmen is a commentator (and an old footballer) who seems in late minutes in the film. In Turkish matches, whenever he says "it's a goal", well, there the shot then and it is. (damn! he is like a seer!) Well, he was not really the person who we expect to see in that scene all of a sudden.
Oh, I'd almost forget! Have I told you what record Cem Yilmaz broke with this movie? His first film, GORA, had been watched by about 1 million people in three days in Turkiye. Now, this is the third day and I think for AROG, this number has already rised up and still is rising...
