Hasmet, director of love stories, wants to make a film with a "social content". He makes a deal with the producer Abdulkadir, yet the actress Mujde Ar doesn't accept the leading role, as Hasmet expected. Hasmet gives the role to Jeyan. He starts to shoot with a very limited budget. In the meantime the producer Abdulkadir cheats everyone and runs away. Jeyan fancies Tarcan, who is the leading actor, but Hasmet himself is interested in Jeyan. He first fires both of the out of jealousy, but rehires them out of necessity. With great difficulties, he finally finishes the film. However, nobody appears in the gala and the crew does not like the movie at all. Hasmet feels suicidal, but a phone call brings him back to life: a producer wants him to make a romantic movie - just what he is the master of!Written by
Corner Stone of the Revival of Turkish Movie industry in 1990's
Sener Sen is one of the most reputable actors of the Turkish movie industry since early 90's. Even though he was already famous as a comedy movie actor since mid 70's he became leading star in his own right in dramatic movies as well, starting with this one. This movie is a reverence to the golden period of the Turkish movie industry before mid 70's, known as Yesilcam. Most of the movies produced at those times were being misprized for being romance movie clichés. Yesilcam is the counterpart expression in place of "Hollywood" for the Turkish movie industry before 1980's; named after a small street in Beyoglu around which there used to be most of the movie production companies and café houses where co-actors and movie extras used to gather. The movie is about a director of those romance movies, who is now hopelessly trying to prove himself to the changing movie industry by trying to make a supposedly intellectual movie with a social message. Veteran actors of those times were also in the movie in their real life characters.
