For the first time in Turkey a comedy actress plays a character of her own creation on screen. Deliha follows the hilarious exploits of a slightly crazy, decidedly droll and genuinely good-natured young woman in search of love. Written by Gupse Özay, who stars in the title role, the movie promises audiences laughs and adventure aplenty. Crazy Zeliha's story begins when she goes to a fortune-teller one day with her friends. The very same day, Cemal and his gorgeous-looking brother, Cemil, open a photography studio in the neighborhood and things become to get complicated.Written by
Deliha is a little gauche, very plain but doesn't lack in confidence.
I watched this movie by chance on a Turkish Airlines flight and was entertained right from the opening scene where the character shines. It makes sense that the movie was built around the character. The story itself loses a little steam towards the end for me but it will nevertheless amuse you.
It's great to discover Turkish cinema can produce such good comedies, miles away from the formulaic Hollywood Rom Coms and the language or cultural barriers are not a problem in appreciating Deliha.
