The film recounts the story of aliens kidnapping the carpet-seller Arif to the planet G.O.R.A. while Arif tries to find a way to get back to his planet, he falls in love with Ceku, the princess. Arif saves the planet from the evil commander-in-chief of G.O.R.A. and hence becomes a hero for the people. In this science-fiction comedy film, Cem Yilmaz played four different characters.Written by
Arif is Cem Yilmaz's father's name and the character himself is influenced by his father, Ceku is his maternal grandmother's nickname, Mulu is his mother's aunt's nickname, Enverina is his mother's uncle's nickname, Tocha is his mother's neighbour's nickname, Garavel is what his grandfather used to call him and Anarsa is the name of the neighborhood where his mother is from.

The number that Arif dials in jail on the ship doesn't match to the number that appears on the LCD screen, since there were a change in the main sponsors of the film. Both sponsors were GSM Operators. But at the filming sequence Telsim was the sponsor, however at the post production sequence it was Avea. See more »
Faruk! Why is the robot crying?
Bob Marley Faruk:
I don't know! Maybe he was programmed to cry!
Shut up, Jackass! Hey, Robot why are you crying?
I've been punished!
Commander Logar? Fuck Commander Logar! What is he interfering for! I have to do something but... What should I do?

This movie takes one of the best abilities of us, the Turkish folk: To be able to make fun of things (especially in difficult situations), and puts it on the screen. Although most of the jokes are local, I'd love to see how a foreigner would react to the movie. The Turkish reaction is obvious: Many, many laughs.
It is hard to comment on a comedy movie's plot, but I can say that G.O.R.A.'s is at least as "meaningful", or as good as The Matrix' or Star Trek's.
And special effects deserve a single word: "Stunning!" Until now, Turkish sci-fi movies had been known for their special effects, or more specifically, their lack thereof. However, G.O.R.A. seems to have made the turning point in the Turkish movie industry. Watch it to see "what we (as in 'the Turkish folk') can do", if not for the hours of fun you are bound to have.
