"Pocket Hercules: Naim Suleymanoglu", which tells the life of Naim Suleymanoglu, who has written his name in gold letters in the history of our country and the world sports and whose achievements are on the cover of Time magazine, is one of the most talked about domestic productions of the last period... Legendary weightlifter Naim Suleymanoglu, who achieved almost impossible achievements in weightlifting and was named "World's Best Athlete", has achieved 47 World Records, 3 Olympic Gold Medals, 6 European Championships and many other achievements in his career. He also made history as the only athlete who could lift more than three times his own weight. He was 15 when he first set the world record. Naim Suleymanoglu, who was the first athlete to win an Olympic gold medal in addition to wrestling, left behind unbreakable records.

What makes this film most impressive is undoubtedly the story of Naim's abduction to Turkey, which was even renamed as a result of the assimilation and violence experienced by the Turkish minority in Bulgaria during the Todor Zhivkov era, and the subsequent attempt to tell the world about what happened in Bulgaria... You can watch this successful production on Netflix.
