Storyline

Late 19th century in Alexandria. Two traditionally rival Turkish families, "Seferoglu"s and "Tellioglu"s are competing for the "Green Valley". The winner will be determined by Daver Bey, who has a beautiful young daughter, Leyla. Both families try to arrange a marriage between a man from their family and Leyla, so that Daver Bey will be inclined to give the green valley to his "relatives". Tellioglus, who are behind in the race, desperately find a final solution: They will fake their idiotic butler, Saban, as the highest ranked Ottoman soldier in Egypt: Tosun Pasha. Written by Ali Riza Bolukbasi

The funniest Turkish film
11 April 2001 | by cankirmiziSee all my reviews

Tosun Pasa is the masterpiece of Kemal Sunal's career, and the funniest Turkish film i saw.It is also the funniest film i saw after "Airplane!".In this comeedy classic, Kemal Sunal is the stupid housekeeper of the "Tellioglu" family who turns out to be playing the role of "Tosun Pasha", the most powerful Pasha of Alexandria, to gain ownership of "Green Valley". Sener Sen and Kemal Sunal do magnificent acting in this film which i recommend everyone to see.
