Popular Turkish comedy writer and performer Şahan Gökbakar ("Dıkkat Şahan Çıkabılır") reunites with his younger brother Togan Gökbakar ("Gen") for the third film in their Turkish box office blockbuster comedy series "Recep İvedik" featuring a somewhat toned down version of his titular comedy character than in previous outings.
Fat, aggressive, unibrowed slob Recep İvedik (Şahan Gökbakar) has plunged into inconsolable grief following the death of his beloved grandmother at the end of the last film when in walks spunky college girl and distant relative Zeynep (Zeynep Çamci) to guide him through the required skits of his emotional journey to recovery.
Şahan Gökbakar returns with a slightly more controlled and less foul-mouthed incarnation of the inspired burlesque exaggeration of the so-called 'maganda' at large in the city while superb support comes from the cute but occasionally grating Zeynep Çamci, who had a minor role in the previous film, as the naive young kid who can tame this wild bear.
The film-makers have tried to create more of an emotional underpinning for the comedy creation's character arch this time out but it still just boils down to a series of short burlesque comedy routines tied together by the loosest of story-lines that will only appeal to those with an intimate understanding of the society they are attempting to skew.
"This is just a shell, inside it's still the old Recep"
