An unremarkable cheap comedy with the exception of characterization
9 March 2013 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

After performing successfully Huseyin Badem character, a naive Thracian boy, from 'Eyyvah Eyvah', Ata Demirer this time endeavored to create a character much more formidable to perform; a middle-aged boxer Ayhan Kaplan who is one of the third generation descendants of Turks in Germany.

It is well-known fact that with cultural degeneration and cultural shock the third generation descendants of Turks in Germany now form an exotic conception of the world; a crossbreed culture seems weird to Germans as wells as to Turks. Movie is prospering to identify this matter of fact, critical on it, illustrates even what kind of cheap quips sounds funny for them. Ata is also prospering with characterization of Ayhan Kaplan who belongs to this crossbreed culture;however the achievement of movie is limited just with these.

Storyline has a scratchy concept, seems the movie remains one of the cheap BKM works; I say this because it is so noticeable that many scenes are just constrained, to illustrate writer made an effort to add romanticism into storyline, it must be the reason that mere comedy contingents upon cultural differences and accent with a cheap dram not found adequate by the writer and felt obligated for romance in storyline that's why love scenes that generated by necessity appears rubbishy.

Yet another problem is conspicuous with inferiority of dramatic scenes; nevertheless being a comedy movie, some drama is inserted; especially recognizable during remonstrance of brother in law and discomfortingly wimpy.Then again, I could not comprehend how the final competition suddenly turns into a national match announced as national pride, plus Kaplan gets strength in a while from his nephew, without any logical explanation.
