Gönülçelen is inspired by Bernard Shaw's play 'Pygmalion' and its film adaptation 'My Fair Lady'. The series transports the scene to Istanbul where both Murat and Hasret, the two main characters, live. Murat is thirty years old and a successful musician and music educator who was born and raised in Istanbul. He comes from a long line of respected, rich and noble people. The female protagonist Hasret - on the other hand - was born and raised in one of Istanbul's most impoverished neighborhoods. She is a free spirited young woman with a 'foul' mouth. Hasret makes her living by selling flowers and occasionally singing in a band. Murat hears potential in her untrained voice and takes it upon himself to teach her the secrets of music by giving her a classical training. Written by Rena

magical combination of music & comedy & romance
27 July 2011 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

This is more than just a musical comedy romantic series it's about Turkish culture especially the gypsy people,and the differences between rich and poor people,that happiness doesn't come only from money and fame and that moral value is much more important.

it shows that being classy doesn't mean fancy clothes and stylish appearance, it simply how to behave in classy way and rise in your morals like Murat.

it discussed a very important point which is the difference between real and classy art and cheap art. the soundtrack it used was divine and touch the soul and all the songs were amazing.

it presented deep feeling and emotions in a classy way and answer the eternal question: which is more important, saying I love you or making you feel it with each action i do???

it's true that the show have some mistakes but it wasn't that serious and didn't affect it's overall value.

greatness comes with simplicity and this is what u did with this show, you give us an example of pure love. Murat& Hasret made us explore & learn new prospectives in life,made us laugh and melt, and made us cry but even their pain had a different sweet taste. your are the BEST classic love legend EVER

thanks to all the cast for their outstanding performance, especially TUBA & CANCEL
