Storyline

Two Turkish anti-terrorist agents are sent to New York City on a mission to find and bring back the dangerous Islamic leader codenamed "Dajjal", believed to be hiding in there. Working with the FBI and NYPD, the agents orchestrate the arrest of Hadji Gumus, a well-respected Muslim scholar and family man who years before fled to the United States after being released from a Turkish prison, where he served time for murder. This tale love, friendship, peace and prejudices, takes us on a journey seeking to answer the question of whether innocence or guilt even matters to one who lusts for vengeance. Written by Anonymous

weak yet promising
14 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After seeing the trailers and all media coverage I couldn't help increasing my expectations. Quite frankly Mahsun couldn't managed to meet most of them..first of all, why all those gaps and shallowness! It's like a music video rather than a film, Mahsun does only touches the main story but never goes deep in it.. time to Be more original man if you want to speak out international, sorry but having one third of film and cast in English never HELPs. Despite all, I still think he will learn from his mistake and make better films,but I wish he didn't and doesn't go that much commercial and cliché. After all, cinema is not about SHOUTING OUT the message, it's an art of conveying the message and let the audience figure it out..
