A serial killer keeps creating crime scenes that are ridiculously decorated with paints, markings and poems everywhere. The team begin solving the most mysterious murder case of the country, using the most wrong methods.
The neurotic Fikret and tavern singer Solmaz, whose 21 year long relationships end on the same day, meet through a funny coincidence. When Solmaz's daughter Zeynep decides to marry her lover from Adana, the ever-fearful Fikret ends up having to play the role of his life. Intended at first to be kept in the fami-ly, the wedding becomes a much bigger event upon the insistence of the groom's relatives. Can our heroes come to terms with the traditional Adana fami-ly who carry guns and own a kebab restaurant chain, and see the wedding through without mishaps?Written by
All the queen's tropes elevated and then some by magnificent acting
Comedy in general isn't about innovation but execution. This particular flick is no exception to the rule as it's filled with tropes and the usual comedic tricks available in the author's bag. That being said, Birsel does indeed show a knack for the rhythm of a scene and has become quite competent (if not masterful) in blind-sighting the audience leading up to the punchline. The characters and the script however aren't anything particularly original so it would be a stretch to give any scriptwriter credit for this. What really saves the day is the chemistry between the two lead roles and the brilliant acting overall. This is to be expected since all the actors picked to perform in this movie have proved themselves as top-notch comedic actors time and again. Well, I've enjoyed it and would definitely recommend to those in need of a good laugh.
