The adventures of the box office sensation, Dügün Dernek (Unconventional Wedding) are all set to continue in Dügün Dernek 2: Sünnet (Unconventional Circumcision). After seeing his son married in the first movie of the series, Ismail is now having stress over his grandson's circumcision. When the old crew reunites, Ismail finds himself in all kinds of unthinkable trouble, and before he knows it the circumcision party has evolved into a citywide affair. Written and directed once again by Selçuk Aydemir, Dügün Dernek 2: Sünnet (Unconventional Circumcision) promises audiences plenty of nonstop laughter. As things quickly become complicated, there is even a place for romance in the rushed preparations, but this circumcision will happen, come hell or high water!
This is another cliché example of those movies where the first movie is a great success and the 2nd is such a failure... Düğün Dernek 2 did make me laugh at some parts, however, it was only that and I felt sorry for all the Lira I paid going to this movie. Frankly, all that was nice was that the girl I loved was there with me.The jokes were mostly so simple and the script felt really scratchy. It was like the director had a week to shoot the movie and this is what came out. Acting was exaggerated and by that I do not mean to say I expected a whole lot of dramatic acting in a comedy movie. However, the acting of especially Rasim Oztekin was such a disaster. I know this guy from many movies where he was like a king, yet, it felt like he was kidding me in this movie. I do not think all these extra high volumed voices and shouting are needed to make an audience laugh. It turns into a mess and the sound becomes more disturbing than funny. The director Selcuk Aydemir did disappoint me knowing that he made the series İsler Gucler, a great piece of work. See? Sometimes you need to stick to making good work instead of making cash taking the advantage of people's love for your sort of work. I hope this trend of "oh I made a couple of good work and let's start shooting Düğün Dernek 3-4-5 and on" would end one day in my country. I gave it a 4, but I honestly think it deserves less since I felt like I was fooled by the whole crew.
