Classic Turkish Melodrama
23 April 2005 | by musticanSee all my reviews

This film comes out of the times when it was in its one of the most productive terms. Samanyolu is adapted from a famous novel and subjected to movies and songs. Main characters are two cousins. Nejat has no parents and cared by his auntie. Zulal has just finished high school and trying to find a suitable man to marry who should be presentable and wealthy. Nejat has been in love with Zulal forever but he cannot tell his feeling to her as he feels like he is going to ruin her good relationship with her. Funny but Zulal feels sorry for him for not having his parents but also flirts with him in a light scale. WELL, having finished his military service, Nejat comes back with even stronger feelings for her. She talks to him about all sorts. The ideal guy she wants to marry to etc... Nejat is having problem as he is unemployed besides being in love. and his unemployment is reminded to him all the time by Zulal in a rude way. To cut it a bit short, Nejat meets a high school friend who finally finds him a job. His name is Namik, handsome and rich. He one day accidentally goes to Nejat's place and sees Zulal and these two marries. Poor Nejat is so heartbroken and chooses to tell Zulal that he loves her on her engagement night. How stupid!! Well, when that happens of course their good cousin relationship is ruined and they stop taking to each other. Even Nejat does not attend her wedding. The film goes on and on with these sort of incidents, coincidences. You will not get bored but will think how silly this movie is. This is a kind of movie that Turkish cinema was all about. Although there are some good example of melodramas, to me this one can not cross pass the barrier. ** out of *****
