if you don't hope for much, nice 1-2 hours to watch.
with having not so complicated plot, Kabadayi has authentic figures in it which are mostly related to Middle East. Anybody who saw the movie probably asked himself what would it be like if Turgul directed it. although he is the screen writer everybody may agree that he' d add a lot of his special motives to this film. not that Vargi is not a good director but Turgul has so much specific talents which adds the unique taste to his films. the movie -Kabadayi- may be summarized with a single line: if a director writes a movie he/she ought to direct it also to keep the originality. other then the direction; cast is just fine. Imirzalioglu who had a not so successful but highly noticed TV past promises for being a terrific actor. Nothing much to say for Sen, he is just gorgeous.
