Absolutely Brilliant
17 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

I hardly watch TV and when I do, it HAS to be good. I recently started watching an Urdu dubbed version of Ask-i-memnu and I must admit that the brilliance with which this show has been made took me by surprise. All actors did a fantastic job in their roles, especially Beren Saat and Kivanc, whose performances deserve applaud. Adnan's son was hilarious at times and the children's nanny (Denise) is also worth mentioning.

As far as the story is concerned, it is full of twists and turns. It's not like your typical, innocent love story with a few villains. Every single person in the story has some sort of a personal agenda that they're working towards. I guess credit goes to the author of the beautifully written novel that this show is based upon.

Although I am giving it 10/10, I do agree with one point that a reviewer made here regarding the love scenes between Bihter and Behlul. The original novel was set in the late 19th century and I understand that this show was supposed to have a more modern setting, but the almost pornographic scenes between Bihter and Behlul were a little unnecessary. They do not deter you from enjoying the show, however. The fact that it has been translated in a number of languages and attracted viewers from all over the world speaks volumes about Ask-i-memnu's success.
