This series is based on a story of Turkish author Vedat Turkali, which was also filmed in 80s. The film was a very touching story of an eye- catching, beautiful girl, Fatmagul, who has no family but his too-naive older brother. Unfortunately, the story starts when Fatmagul gets raped by 4 men. 3 of these men are spoilt rich kids and the other is a local boy, Kerim. The law, stupidly enough, forgives the act of rape if one of the rapers marries with the victim. So, the rich kids get rid of their crime by persuading Kerim to marry Fatmagul. After the two marry, the trio walks free and leave the town. Kerim gets frustrated, because he is the one who's left with a wife he does not want. He beats Fatmagül, who miscarries a baby because of this. But Fatmagul has nowhere to go, no one to trust, and she has no option but accept and love her husband. This was the story of how two people, desperate in their own ways, bound together and start loving each other, a story built on despair and hopelessness.
However, this new series is a somehow modernized version and I miss the old adaptation's "reality". In this version Kerim is portrayed as a passionate lover who is too good to be true. Fatmagul is a strong character, she does not love but hate Kerim, refusing to accept him as a husband. Also there are newly introduced characters such as Fatmagul's fiancé, who dumps her immediately after the rape, Fatmagul's sister in law, a sly and unreliable housewife, Ebe Nine; the woman who raised Kerim, now the biggest supporter for Fatmagul. And the villains, the other 3 rapers are introduced with their relatives and the events turn out to be a war between Fatmagul-Kerim, and them.
This series is not genuine, lack a sense of reality because in real life things does not happen this way. The acting is really good, especially Kerim- Engin Akyurek is great. I wish the characters were presented realistically enough.. This would have been a great series then.
