Might get boring if you watch it today.
11 May 2020 | by enis-basolSee all my reviews

This movie is a mockery of everything the word 'arabesque' standed for during 80s. As the 'arabesque' period is fortunately over, the themes made fun of in the movie gets boring and you find yourself desperately craving for the end but there comes another theme to mock. I find it a success though to be able to pull legs like this by making fun of the themes that were used a lot in the period. Even so, I think this one is extremely overrated among Sener Sen's movies being rated higher than The Bully.
