Mr. Muhsin (Turkish: Muhsin Bey) is a 1987 Turkish drama film, written and directed by Yavuz Turgul, featuring Şener Şen as a solitary middle-aged music producer, approached by a young man who dreams of becoming a folk singer. The film was screened in competition at the 24th Antalya Golden Orange Film Festival, where it won Golden Oranges for Best Film, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Script, and the 6th International Istanbul Film Festival, where it won a Special Jury Prize, and was voted one of the 10 Best Turkish Films by the Ankara Cinema Association.[1]


Ali Nazik seeks help from producer Muhsin Kanadikirik to become a Türkücü (a folk singer). Muhsin who is a fan of Müzeyyen Senar and Safiye Ayla is against the Arabesque type music that is favored by Nazik. Muhsin eventually relents and takes him under his wing and they work together to make Nazik a star.
