Yeddi Oğul İstərəm, literally translating as "I'd like seven sons..." is a 1970 full-length Azerbaijani feature film. The film plot is written by Yusif Samedoglu based on his father poet Samed Vurgun's The Komsomol Poem which is about the events of 1920's and the Soviet overtaking of Azerbaijan.

The title "Yeddi Oğul İstərəm" derives from Azerbaijani folklore clause Yeddi Oğul İstərəm, Bircə Dənə Qız Gəlin (meaning "I'd like seven sons and just one daughter"), usually said during the weddings, when the groom comes to the bride's house to pick her up. The movie was shot for the 50th anniversary of establishment of Soviet power in Azerbaijan.

Zaur's family condemns the relationship and tries to divert Zaur to a family arranged marriage with the daughter (Firangiz) of family friends. Pressure from the society and continuous calls from Zaur's mother (Zarnigar Aghakishiyeva) to Tahmina eventually lead to big problems in their relationship culminating in break up and Tahmina's suffering.

A novelist (Gil) who has abandoned her writing career tracks down the details of a true story from the last days of the Spanish Civil War. The writer and Falangist Rafael Sánchez Mazas (Fontserè) faced a firing squad along with fifty other prisoners, but managed to escape into the woods. A Republican soldier, apparently one of those searching the area for the escaped prisoner, found him but allowed him to escape. The novelist pieces together the fragments of the story, plagued by contradictions and mysterious characters, and comes to realize that her search for the truth is a personal quest of self-discovery.
