WHAT’S THE MOVIE ABOUT
Set in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1962 (Cold War-era America), the story follows a mute cleaner, Elisa (played by Hawkins), at a high-security government laboratory who falls in love with a captured part-human, part-amphibian creature. Now, it is a race against time and American and Russian foes alike to save this beautiful creature from a brutal death. Does Elisa succeed? Watch the film to find out.
Can Yaman and Özge Gürel are back with a new series, Bay Yanlış (Mr. Wrong), that airs on Fox Turkey every Friday 8.00 P.M. They had previously worked together on Dolunay. Being a huge fan of Yaman, I could not afford to miss this one. To date, fourteen episodes have been aired. Episode 14 is the last in this series. This post features reviews of the first five episodes.
Let’s just say this is going to be another great series, which is going to take the world by storm again.
Bay Yanlış is a romantic, fun, and light-hearted drama. It features a great lead pair and a strong supporting cast. Hopefully, with enough help from the scriptwriters, it will be another magical series, even better than Yaman’s previous works.
Now, let’s have a brief look at episodes 1-5.

A Turkish romantic comedy starring Can Yaman and Açelya Topaloğlu in the lead roles of Yalın and Defne (respectively), İnadına Aşk catapulted Yaman to fame in 2015. There is a reason why Yaman became famous after this show.
It’s a light-hearted show (which romantic comedy isn’t?) with dollops of rib-tickling humor and (no guesses!) sweet romance. Yaman, as the stubborn, spoilt, rich guy with a heart of gold and Topaloğlu, as the sweet, sassy, smart, honest and rich girl who chatters incessantly, do full justice to their roles.
