Review of the new series Uysallar by Hakan Günday and Onur Saylak

Before the duo Onur Saylak and Hakan Günday we saw Personality, which I think is the best work ever done for internet platforms in Turkey. As such, tameler caused quite a stir from the moment it was announced. Let’s see if that excitement was a disappointment or if we’re in for another legendary job.

Actually, Uysallar has a very well-known history.

A person who was free in his childhood loses his essence through social pressure and gets stuck in certain patterns as he grows up. During a journey into his past, he begins to think that it’s not me and ignites the fires of rebellion. However, this new found freedom comes into conflict with the life he currently leads.

Of course, a story can be built on the ideas already told. Nothing wrong with that. It is important here to set different accents on similar stories. First of all, the punk culture here was a good choice. because punk in Turkey is a subculture of the subculture. Therefore we can say that topics like squatting and life in the commune are interesting.

In addition, in such a production, the audience must be able to connect with the main character.

I would like to say that I found Önerkan very successful in this regard. because oktay doesn’t develop a second character after deciding to go punk. In the scenes where he wanders the streets at night, he still remains a naïve, polite individual who offers opportunities to those around him and considers it his duty to do so. For example, in a film that deals with this subject quite normally, Oktay fought with the men blocking his way after he left the pharmacy, hit him a little, was hit a little, and then smiled at us with his mouth shut Blood. here, however, Oktay doesn’t suddenly get over his shyness. This is an indication that the character was successfully animated and written.

The main criticism here is that the character Oktay has problems with being middle-upper class (usually I hate people’s economic situation, but that’s the atmosphere of the show) and the audience can’t adjust to that. I disagree with this question because the point here is not that Oktay is a successful architect. For example the things that can happen to anyone who works, that they live with their boss and with the person they have to do a project with. Sometimes you can’t open your mouth and say something while the person in front of you is just bullshit. Unfortunately, you see that in every job and even in every area of ​​life.

We can make a similar interpretation for the situation between Oktay and his father. We can see many things in real life, from “I know everything” to the anxiety of the character played by Uğur Yücel. This person does not necessarily have to be your relative. You can recognize such people when you meet them. Therefore, this character is a realistic tool for Oktay’s staff.

only the knee has a handicap

If what you call a metaphor is implicit, it becomes a metaphor. If you go to the character and design a prison, it becomes more of a blind finger sign. Check out the whole series and you can see that all the signs are really neon. we can say that it somewhat detracts from the viewing pleasure.

Also, the most basic logic in cinema is not to tell, but to show. For example, Alfred Hitchcock says that dialogue is the last thing to choose in storytelling. You can use this tool if you run out of anything. In this series, Hakan Günday preferred to have the characters say the aphorisms he used in his own books. Let’s say it’s a new era style in this book (which I don’t like so much, but our topic isn’t literature right now), it doesn’t seem natural that every character who opens his mouth constantly expresses himself with aphorisms. because people think spontaneously when they speak in everyday life. Whatever is on your mind at that moment, you convey it somehow. For aphorisms it is necessary to stop and think. Because of this, the characters either walk around with sticky notes in case something like this happens next to them, or they are extremely intelligent, they think very quickly and make aphorisms. Come on, if it was a character you’d say she’s very smart, but when every character is like that, it’s like the screenwriter waving at you while watching the series. This is a phenomenon that reduces the pleasure of watching again.

If we look at the white-collar section, which is the main criticism of the series, we can say that there are accurate observations here.

For example, the characters of Yağmur, Suat and Mert can be found in every company. the kindness earthen, which revives the rain character, is particularly successful. He conveyed very well to the audience the person who is constantly chasing entertainment but empty inside with his demeanor, demeanor and speech.

All in all, the series isn’t bad

but it is something else or not so high that it can be compared with personality. Especially when you watch the last 3 episodes people get bored because we can’t tell they are saying very new things on the subject. and because some metaphors are very clear, you understand that this gun is fired and that someone is locked in the sample cell. Also, it was very difficult for the characters to get together and pour the rocks on their skirts.

do you still watch the series I think it’s worth seeing. Perhaps now, instead of waiting for legendary works like in the early days of digital platforms, one needs to remember that this is a process and the most important thing is continuity.
