Plot and Comments
3 December 2007 | by UlamaxSee all my reviews

The movie is about an unusual band of friends and their involvement of a kidnapping. The friends consist of six guys with no-good jobs, or odd jobs that comes their way living together in an old, old house with a nosey neighbour. They go to an expensive venue to eat, drink and listen to one of their favourite stars, Emel Sayin (her real name, she's really a renowned performer) but the place was way off their income, they could not pay the check, so they are beaten by the staff and hurled outside. Feeling humiliated the gang decide to kidnap Emel Sayin and hold for ransom...and they do. They try to obtain the ransom money for many times and things go wrong and they cannot release Emel Sayin for a long time...not to mention the trouble they have to hide her away from the nosey neighbour. Eventually Emel Sayin also likes her kidnappers (not to mention some deeper feelings for the 'pretty-boy-of-the-crew') whom are kind of well-meaning naive guys and she even starts helping them in the house chores, knitting clothes for them, even teaching one how to read and write. They finally have the money afterwards and they really have to release her, but she does not want to leave them....what will be? This is one of the big crew romantic comedies of 1970's in Turkey. The protagonists of the cast has got many personality tokens, e.g. "The old wise guy" (Münir Özkul), "The pretty boy" (Tarik Akan), "The doofus" (Kemal Sunal), "The Little Guy" (Halit Akçatepe) etc. Their ransom rendezvous scenes are remarkably funny and some emotional moments and Turkish music as well....since the lead actress is a famous singer whom plays as herself you might expect a lot of music. The jokes might be a little too Turkish audience oriented at times, but still amusing.
