I just finished watching a Turkish drama serial Aşk-ı Memnu (Urdu: Ishq-e-Memnu, English: Forbidden Love) on DVD once again.
This was my 4th T-drama serial after Noor, Ezal, and Fatmagül'ün Suçu Neand, and after watching it, I can hammer on it was one of the best series I have watched so far. Turkish dramas are simply the best !
I rarely watch local channels, just news and talk shows if it is so damn impo, otherwise not at all. And local entrainment is a big NO. It sucks big time. In dramas, heroine_______ main female character is mostly lower class, shaeerf, week, dumb and stupid, full with social and economic issues, crying, crying and just crying, and people are loving it. Our audience love watching crying women.And hero is just too stiff.Sorry I can't put up with this crap.
My life is some how also like that, so why I watch the same thing on screen? I do watch telly for entertainment, and if I have to see mirror, I have one in my room.
On the other hand, dramas and soap operas have nothing to do with the reality. They are drama, and let them be drama, instead of making them an eye opener or reality type documentary thing. See, I ain't saying always make some thing comedy and haha heheheh type stuff, but for peters' sake let the entertainment be entertainment.
Every society has their own problems. There is pain and hurt in love.But in our dramas there is no break ups, no make up. There is no hope, no love story in it. Just cry outs.
So for my entertainment dose I watch star world etc etc.
Few months ago outta blue a new telly channel, Urdu1 stared, and they on aired this Turkish drama in Urdu. It was a breath of fresh air for me.
This series is originally adapted from Halit Ziya Uşaklıgil's novel Aşk-ı Memnu. Every thing was spot on in it. Story was so light. Acting was good. Actor and actress were all GOOD LOOKING, esp Kivanç, who played the role of Behtul. He is soooooooooo blonde.
Have you ever watched any foreign drama series, if yes then tell me about it ?
