Recep İvedik 3 is a 2010 Turkish comedy film, directed by Togan Gökbakar, which stars Şahan Gökbakar as an oafish character who is attempting to combat depression following the death of his grandmother. The film, which was released nationwide in Turkey on February 12, 2010 (2010-02-12), was the highest grossing Turkish film of 2010. The film's titular comic character was created by Şahan Gökbakar for his Turkish comedy television show Dikkat Şahan Çıkabilir, which ran from 2005 to 2006. The series subsequently generated several sequel films, starting with Recep İvedik (2008), to which this is the second sequel.[1]


Recep İvedik (Şahan Gökbakar) shows signs of deep depression following the death of his grandmother. In the meantime, one of his distant relatives, Zeynep (Zeynep Çamcı), comes to İstanbul to attend university.

With Recep being Zeynep’s only relative in the big city, she will have to stay at Recep’s house for a few months. Now that Zeynep has been included in his life, Recep tries every kind of activity to socialize and get rid of his depression, including going to the theater and even attending karate classes. However, nothing seems to work for Recep.


The film opened across Germany and Austria on February 11, 2010 (2010-02-11) and across Turkey on February 12, 2010 (2010-02-12) at number one in the Turkish box office chart. On its worldwide opening weekend, the film grossed of $8,665,889.[2]
