I don’t believe that the show needs an introduction for what it is, but I’m going to do it anyway. Fatima Gul – Akhir Mera Qasoor Kya? is a Turkish drama, originally named Fatmagül’ün Suçu Ne? The title is in Turkish and literally translates to ‘What is Fatima Gul’s fault.’
The series is based on a novel written by Vedat Türkali and has also been made in a movie as well. Every episode in the series is originally ninety minutes long!
Series in Pakistan
A dubbed version of the show is being aired or Urdu1 channel in Pakistan, a dubbed and censored version, to be precise. The show gained instant popularity from the start of its broadcast. In our country both genders appreciate the series.
The series revolves around a young girl named Fatima Gul and a tragic event in her life. On the night of her engagement she was gang raped by a group of friends from her engagement party. The series depicts the events that take place as Fatima Gul and her family fights for her justice.
The Alluring Actors
One thing is a fact; the actors are to die for. Their acting, their expressions, their looks, everything about them is irresistible.
Beren Saat – Fatima Gul
The gorgeous Beren won everyone’s hearts with her innocent yet gorgeous face. Even though her character in the serial of Urdu1 channel over reacts in the smallest of situations but what do you expect from a girl that faced such tragedy? Beren is only twenty nine years old and has won the hearts of many. Her character’s name is spelled Fatmagul originally.
Engin Akyürek – Kareem Ilgaz
Is it just me or this guy really loves his wife? As the series progresses, the feelings between Kareem and Fatima Gul bloom too, all thanks to Kareem. Engin has won multiple awards for his role. He was also awarded the most attractive actor under thirty. Yes ladies, our good old Kareem is only thirty years old in the series. He turned thirty one on October 12.
His character is the strong but lovable man who will do everything to protect the one he loves but also be warm and affectionate. His gentleness contrasts his huge stature, and that’s what we like about him.
All actors in the series do exceptionally well in playing their characters. The characters are heartfelt and look just right for their roles. Every actor has it in them to be someone’s favorite.
The show also faced some grudges from our audience. Many viewers were reluctant to the idea of foreign content being aired on our channels. The show depicts the culture of Turkey, a diverse nation. Their dresses and way of living was too hard to accept for some Pakistanis.
Another negative point about the series is that it keeps on stretching. Things always keep going wrong and the drama is somewhat too realistic with the speed it moves forward. But that can also be because in Pakistan the episodes of the series are cut in half.
The Positive Approach
Being close to reality is also the positive approach of this series. The way things progress between Fatima Gul and Kareem and the events happening in life show how unpredictable life can be. The series shows the practical world where dreams shatter, people make mistakes and you get hurt.
I would recommend you watch the series, you won’t know what you’re missing out on until you see it. The title song of the series is sung by Khurram Iqbal from the band Fuzon.
