Senses of Cinema wrote: Director Yavuz Turgul is often described as creating a bridge between the old directors from the Yesilcam days and the new generation of filmmakers. His Eskiya depicts a Kurdish outlaw emerging from decades in gaol and journeying to Istanbul to seek revenge on the man who betrayed him and stole his childhood sweetheart. In terms of narrative, themes and characterisation, Eskiya is heavily influenced by Yesilcam. However, it also breaks away from the technical lack often associated with this earlier period of Turkish cinema. Along with its high production values and sophisticated editing techniques never before harnessed in Turkish cinema, Eskiya was also the first Turkish production to use synchronous sound recording. Dubbing during post-production was a salient feature of the budgetary-challenged Yesilcam days and filmmaking in Turkey right up until the early ’90s.
