Storyline

Born into a poor family, witnessed the tragedy of his mother and his baby sister getting killed by his father in front of his eyes, a serious car accident, which he was first pronounced dead that left him partially deaf and gave him gestural and speaking difficulties, which later became part and parcel of his eccentric personality, a tumultuous relationship with a movie actress and singer who is 21 years older than him. Muslum found his redemption in music from the initial trauma that lingered over his musical and personal life as "internalizing the grief. He rose through his ashes of shattered dreams like a phoenix. He walked in darkness, sang songs filled with sorrow which stirred people's souls and created a cult following. They were calling him "Baba" (The Father). First he was the Father of the young, low-income urban misfits or rejects.

FATHER OF MILLIONS
4 November 2018 | by KeremUlucaySee all my reviews

This movie is so special. There wont be another Gurses, he is the only one in history, espacially in this type of music. Film is really successful about make you feel emotions of the story. No lie, I cried few times. What a dolorous life. Cast did so much better than I thought. Timucin Esen and Sahin Kendirci made a brilliant job. We can see inside of character clearly. Also musics are great, of course. But there are some problems about directing, storytelling and cinematography but these things can be tolerated after all. Rest in peace father. Your children love you.
