As someone who has recently started watching Turkish shows, I couldn't help but wonder why Ask-i-Memnu has a higher rating on IMDb than Fatmagul considering that this story is not only realistic, but also the story of a plethora of women around the world. But when I saw the breakdown of votes by gender and age, it was no surprise to me that a lot of young males seemed to have given this show poor ratings. Of course! It's not as saucy or racy as shows like Ask-i-memnu, and the story probably hits home, too. Firstly, Beren Saat is a fantastic actress. Give her any role, and she'll give the best performance one could expect from an actress. Secondly, it is good to see a show based around a story that is more common in real life than people like to think. Sure, the novel may have had a different story, and I can understand why that would cause people to downgrade the show, but it still doesn't justify poor ratings. Fatmagul reminds me of the real life story of Mukhtara Mai, a Pakistani rape victim. I suggest that readers research on her story before watching Fatmagul.
Other than the above, I LOVED the beautiful views of Turkey. LOVED all the characters - villains and heroes. And I specifically adored the character of Rahimi (Bulent Seyran). 10/10
