It's a huge progress for Turkish Cinema, even though several mistakes, this picture is a 160 min. worth movie with an unclaimed argument in the history of motion picture, ever.
It needs to be supported for upcoming sequels, not as a continuation of the story but new high budget movies of Turkish Cinema, to provide a new aspect to uphold stories through film making.
