Tutar Sagdiyev (Kazakh: Тутар Сағдиева) is a satirical character invented by English comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. Played by Maria Bakalova, she is Borat's 15-year-old daughter and later a Kazakh journalist and main character in the 2020 film Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Bakalova spoke Bulgarian as Tutar.
Tutar's post-makeover look is designed after the news hosts of Fox News. The role has sparked debate for a scene in which Bakalova (as Tutar) interviews Rudy Giuliani and he apparently seen seemingly putting a hand down his trousers in her presence, allegations Giuliani has denied to be "inappropriate". Baron Cohen has stated he was “quite concerned” during the filming of the scene in question, out of "[his] responsibility as a producer as well to ensure that the lead actor is looked after" and fear of Giuliani potentially having done more. The security of the White House was also criticized after Bakalova was able to attend a press briefing in-character as Tutar in the company of OAN White House correspondent Chanel Rion, without either a background check or COVID-19 test.
Fictional character biography
At fifteen-years-old, Tutar is introduced as the daughter of Borat whom he discovers to be living in his former barn upon returning to his property. After informing her of his new mission to deliver Jonny the Monkey to Mike Pence, Tutar asks to come with Borat, for which request she is rebuffed. Subsequently, Tutar stows away in the crate of Jonny the Monkey, killing and eating him for sustenance, greatly surprising Borat upon his arrival in America. After initially rebuffing her again, Borat instead decides to offer Tutar as a bride to Pence, which she is in favor of, being a fan of a Kazakhstan animated film depicting Melania Trump as a happy queen who lives in a golden cage.
After asking for and acquiring a cage of her own from Borat, Tutar receives a makeover from a sugar baby and a debutante coach to bring her more in line with what Pence would be looking for, before attempting to present herself to him at a nearby convention. Upon being unable to enter, Borat and Tutar instead decide to present her to Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. Having heard Giuliani had bragged about having an affair with a large-breasted woman, Borat demands that Tutar get cosmetic surgery and breast implants. After being left with a babysitter who is confused by Borat's sexist teachings, Tutar learns the things her culture has taught her are lies. After seeing a woman driving a car, and successfully masturbating for the first time, Tutar decides not to get the surgery and lashes out at Borat for keeping her oppressed her whole life. Before leaving, she tells him the Holocaust is a lie by citing a Holocaust denial Facebook page.
Several months later, Tutar has become a successful reporter, covering a March for Our Rights rally in Olympia, Washington. However, upon learning at the rally that Borat will be executed if she does not present herself to Giuliani, Tutar reluctantly agrees to it, arranging an interview with him, placing balloons above her chest and flirting with him during their interview. After the pair enter her hotel bedroom and Giuliani sticks his hands down his trousers, Borat bursts in, having had a change of heart with regards to Tutar after talking to her babysitter, and offers himself in her place, at which point, Giuliani leaves. Borat decides to face execution in Kazakhstan and Tutar promises to go with him.
Upon meeting with Nursultan Nazarbayev and learning Borat will not be executed, both he and Tutar are shocked to learn that Borat had instead been used as retaliation by Nazarbayev for making Kazakhstan a laughingstock by being infected with SARS-CoV-2 before he began his journey, making the pair patient zero of the COVID-19 pandemic. Borat records Nazarbayev's admission and sends it to the man who sold him his phone in America, allowing them to blackmail Nazarbayev. Three months later, Tutar is now the third-most-successful reporter in Kazakhstan ahead of her father, having revoked Kazakhstan's misogynistic laws. Having realised the greatest threat to their nation's sovereignty not too be the Jew but the Yankee, Tutar and Borat become a reporting team and they cover Kazakhstan's newest tradition: the Running of the American, where exaggerated versions of Trump's supporters pretend to spread COVID-19 and kill an effigy of Anthony Fauci.
Critics have praised the character of Tutar as well as the performance from Bakalova, with Matt Fowler of IGN stating how "[t]he film's fantastic find, Maria Bakalova, every bit Sacha Baron Cohen's on-screen equal, is who, and what, most people will be talking about in the wake of [the film]." Los Angeles Times film critic Justin Chang said described Bakalova's performance as "terrific", praising her portrayal of her character's journey “with madcap energy and touching conviction.” As of October 2020, Sacha Baron Cohen is lobbying for Bakalova to be nominated at the 93rd Academy Awards in 2021.
