Indeed, The 2012 Turkish epic action movie Fetih 1453 was directed by Faruk Aksoy and produced by him, Servet Aksoy, and Ayşe Germen. The movie, which stars Devrim Evin, Brahim Ellikkol, and Dilek Serbest, is based on the circumstances surrounding Constantinople’s fall to the Ottoman Turks during Sultan Mehmed II’s rule.


Firstly in Fetih 1453, When Muhammad, the Islamic prophet, was alive in Medina in 627 AD, the movie starts. Other sahabas are informed by Abu Ayyub that a blessed general and army would take control of Constantinople. The 15th century enters the narrative unexpectedly.

Following which, Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih was appointed to the throne by his father Murad II when he was 12 years old. While in charge of the Sanjak of Saruhan, he hears of his father’s passing. After the passing of his brother Fathl IV, this causes him great sorrow and opens the door for his return to the throne.

Mehmet Rising to the Throne

He was also 12 years old when Sultan Mehmet initially rose to the throne. However, Murad II abdicated the throne and installed Mehmet after becoming suffocated by the political enmity of his margraves and viziers and feeling profoundly affected by the loss of his beloved son Mohamed. Due to this circumstance, Grand Vizier Halil Pasha, who had considerable power over the Janissaries and the state, was not happy.


Mehmet’s Assertions

Subsequently, He was particularly worried by Sultan Mehmet’s assertion that the conquering of Constantinople is crucially important. In anticipation of the potential for crusaders to take Ottoman lands by taking advantage of Mehmet, he had Sultan Murat inherit the throne once again. Following which, Mehmet was removed from the throne and delivered to the Saruhan Sanjak.

Mehmet’s Comeback

Mehmet now returns to the throne and gains even more authority. Also, Constantinople remains his first goal as an objective. He finds motivation in Muhammad’s prophecy that Constantinople will undoubtedly be overthrown. What a fortunate leader he is, and what a fortunate army it is.”

Mehmet’s choice to live in peace

In addition, Everything that will bring him there is planned out by him. Mehmet chooses to live in harmony with neighbouring nations initially as he makes preparations for his campaign. However, He tells them of his desire to live in peace by sending ambassadors to the Papal States, the Kingdom of Hungary, the Serbian Despotate, the Kingdom of Poland, the Republic of Genoa, and the Republic of Venice.

Dialogue between rivals

Gallipoli’s Dockyard

In the movie Fetih 1453, As a result of his restoration efforts, Gallipoli’s dockyard can now build 100 galleys every year. Sultan Mehmet, in contrast, is viewed as being inexperienced and lacking in vision by the Byzantine Emperor Constantine XI Palaiologos.

Prince Orhan as a Hostage

Following which, In an effort to gain benefit from having Prince Orhan as a hostage, Constantine makes high requests for appropriations. In addition to this, The major goal of Constantine is to make Sultan Mehmet seem bad by submitting to his requests. Sultan Mehmet seems to agree with his requests, but this is merely a ruse.
Ottoman forces immediately departed towards Akşehir after learning of Karaman’s uprising.

Mehmet’s Consent to Peace

Indeed, Such a powerful force was not what Karamanolu Brahim had anticipated. He calls for calm. Sultan Mehmet consents to the peace since he does not want to endanger his forces needlessly. After the military mission, some janitors approach the state tent on the way back and demand money. They hadn’t fought in real warfare.

Final Prayer

Sending Enthronement

Also, Enthronement is sent out in response by Sultan Mehmet. Kurtçu Doan, the head janitor, is also exiled by him. Grand Vizier Halil Pasha had the janissary on his side. Mehmet rightfully takes control of his army after this occurrence. Besides, Mehmet sends an envoy to the Emperor Constantine after his return to Adrianople, informing him that he would no longer give the stipend for Orhan’s ongoing incarceration.

Victory of Sultan Mehmet in FETIH 1453

Finally, in the movie Fetih 1453, The Boazkesen (Rumelian) Fortress was being constructed across from the Anatolian Fortress after this occurrence, according to Mehmet. He is adamant about going to war with the Byzantine Empire.
Even so, The Byzantine soldiers on the walls were defeated by Sultan Mehmet and his army on May 29, 1453.
