On the way to their next battle, Genghis Khan and his men stumble upon Otsukarci (Turan Seyfioglu), a proud Turk, with whom the Khan's right hand soon engages in fight without any real reason, only to realize he can't defeat him. Then the actual battle starts, in the course of which Otsukarci, though not participating himself, saves Genghis Khan's life by killing a man trying to stab him in the back.

Genghis Khan realizes he has found a brave man and loyal follower, so he sends Otsukarci on a dangerous mission, to collect the taxes from Sheik Gebel.

Taxes aside, Sheik Gebel has problems of his own: His son Halit is to marry the daughter of the Bey of Atai, but first he must defeat the Bey's best man in one-on-one battle ... only Halit doesn't know the first thing about fighting. Then though the Sheik sees Otsukarci battle his entire army, and as fate has it, Otsukarci is a splitting image of the Sheik's son. And since Otsukarci has fallen in love with the Sheik's daughter Sabihat and wants the tax money at any cost, he is easily persuaded to fight the Bey's men in Halit's stead.

Otsukarci defeats the Bey's men with ease, but somehow, the Sheik's little trick is uncovered, and the Bey wants the head of Halit's impersonator - which the Sheik generously grants him. However, one of the Sheik's servants, Cakir, a Turk like Otsukarci, helps Otsukarci escape, and instead of Otsukarci, the Bey's men decapitate the real Halit, taking him for the impostor.

The Sheik blames Otsukarci for his son's death and wants him killed, yet Otsukarci still returns to the Sheik's place to collect the tax money, and he even manages to escape the Sheik's guards while saying good-bye to Sabihat, who promises to one day return to him ...

With his mission having been a success, Genghis Khan trusts Otsukarci more and more, and sends him along with Cakir on more and more missions, but then Otsukarci falls foul of the son of Genghis Khan, who takes Sabihat hostage and lures Otsukarci into a trap when he sets his own palace aflame. Otsukarci escapes though, but when he returns to the Khan, he finds that Genghis Khan has already sentenced Sabihat to death - which causes Otsukarci to lead his army against the army of Genghis Khan, and during that battle, the son of the Khan is killed and the army of the Khan defeated ... upon which Genghis Khan finally agrees to release Sabihat and in the end, lovers Otsukarci and Sabihat are reunited.


Nice historical with all the typical genre elements in the right places. And even though the film was ultimately made rather cheaply, it makes perfect use of impressive Turkish landscapes and historical buildings. Now the movie might be anything but historically accurate, but at the same time, it's lots of fun, trust me.


After having spent an eternity in lost movie-limbo, this film has been made available to the film-loving public (in a limited edition) by the good folks from Onar Films .

Besides the movie with English or Greek subtitles and the obligatory photo gallery and trailers, biographies and filmographies, their DVD also includes the first part of a documentary on Turkish Fantastic Cinema and the amazing 40-page Turkish Fantastic Cinema Guide, something every filmfan should have at home . To put it short: This DVD's a must-have !
