Bright filmmaker crashes and burns this time.
18 January 2010 | by ulnoymanSee all my reviews

Before watching this movie I considered myself a fan of Ezel Akay and liked everything he was involved in creatively. "Neredesin Firuze" and "Karagöz ve Hacivat Neden Öldürüldü" were among my favorite movies. He seemed to get better with every project - that is until this disorganized flop.

"7 Kocali Hürmüz" is a well-known Turkish musical loved by generations. This 2009 remake is unworthy of it. This movie actually butchers, vandalizes, oversimplifies, and simply ruins that memory with awful acting, badly designed decor and costumes, but mostly with of a horrible screenplay riddled with witless lumpen humor.

There are so many things to criticize in the movie, but still being a fan of Akay, I will cut it short and hope that he would learn from this debacle to get back on the right track. I suspect that his failure is partly caused by the creative involvement of Cem Özer and Nurgül Yesilcay, who are the pushers of the project.
