Forbidden Love killed a woman and injured the rest ... (Heart-Break Like No-Other)
23 January 2013 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

I've seen thousands of movies and shows but have never seen heartbreak like Ask-i-Memnu. In recent times I have not seen a love story like Aski- Memnu, which have left me dazed and devastated for months. I'm writing the whole story and my point of view on Aski- Memnu, which I have not stopped watching since I became aware of it. And YES I've watched every Behlül & Bihter's scenes more than anyone can imagine.

Aski Memnu is a tragic love story of a young woman "Bihter", who marries an older man "Adnan", whom her mother is eying as her second husband to take revenge on her mother who is responsible for her father's death. Adnan is a widower & Turkey's richest business man who lives with his teenage daughter and son. Behlül is Adnan's distanced cousin's son whom he provides home after his parents are passed away. Behlül is Casanova who use to date Bihter's elder sister and because of his reputation Bihter dislike Behlül and never talked to him. After Bihter's marriage to Adnan, Behlül and Bihter dislike each other as Behlül thinks she married his uncle for money and Bihter thinks Behlül is a heartless prick. The things change when certain set of events develop feeling in Behlül's heart towards Bihter. Bihter unaware of Behlül's feeling towards her also starts feeling inclined to him. This leads to a beginning of a forbidden heart breaking romance between Behlül and Bihter. This Forbidden romance kills a woman and injured the rest.

This bleak story I mentioned above doesn't do justice to painful suffering of Bihter "A Woman in Love with a Coward Man". I might have seen several movies and shows but have not seen a woman so much in pain as her. From beginning she is grieving for her father's sudden death which leads to her marriage to an old man and then a Forbidden Love affair with coward man who not for once stood up with her. Every time I was the ending, or Behul's cruel behavior towards Bihter I wish it didn't happened or there must be a way to change it, even if it's just a TV show its more real than anything I have ever seen. I have seen Behlül and Bihter's scenes several times again and again. And I'm still unable to understand how could a man who loved a man so much leaves her in so much pain and devastation.

Beren Saat's performance as Bihter has outdone all performances ever done by any actress in TV or cellulite history. As Bihter, her expressions changes every other minutes and sometimes in seconds. She is happy on front and in extreme pain inside which is visible in her eyes the entire time. Even when she tries to fight her mother to marry an old man or when unwontedly she falls for her husband's nephew. I've never seen a woman more in pain then her, she fall for a coward man who disappointed her on every occasion. She tries to break free of his charisma but falls right underneath it again and again. Just thinking about Bihter's heart break brings tears in my eyes. Conventionally we may are suppose to hate a woman who cheats on her husband with his Son like nephew but we can't. We see her struggling on every step and she tries to fight all odds against her. Even knowing that the man she loves isn't going to stand behind her. There are thousand times I think that she should not have committed suicide for this coward man but honestly there was no other way for her. She was in pain, a pain which was eating her soul and heart and the only way to put him through that pain was to make him finally realize that he even can't live without her.

It won't be wrong to say that Kivanc Tatlitug is one of the world's most beautiful men alive and his casting as Casanova lover Behlül is perfect. His performance is nothing but spectacular, first as Casanova lover, then as man on fire falling for his young aunt, then turning into this obsessive lover to eventually selfish lover and in the end to heartbroken for life lover is exceptional. We can't ignore his charisma, expressions and superb performance.

The chemistry between Beren Saat and Kivanc Tatlitug is magical, at least I have never seen chemistry like that ever and especially in TV shows it's not possible. Every day the moment they see each other there is this fire and unspeakable magic between them. Even when we see Bihter and Behlül hating each other in the start or when they feel attracted to each other and when they fall in love with each other and in the end when they fight. There are a still magical expressions, eyes and body languages which is rare and uncommon between two people. To understand how powerful their chemistry and performance is you have to watch their every scene multiple times. I swear Bihter and Behlül's every second's expression is a million dollar; even they are not in a scene together and hear each other's voice on phone or someone else even say their name. Their facial expression and eyes are not worthy. No wonder this show looks more than real than any reality show or documentary.

I've become obsessed with the show and its amazing cast, direction, writing, background music and production value. I think everyone should take time out to watch this incredible series as just like me you would have not seen woman like "Bihter" whose heart have been broken thousand times in to pieces and she still tries to fight again and again all alone for the coward lover who never can stand up to the world. Long after the series will be over this will haunt you as you've never seen a woman as broken as Bihter.
