I started watching this series for the first time in November 2012. I was lucky to see it from episode 1 and I was totally impressed. Music, actors, acting, events, story line. Everything was about to become the best series I have ever seen on tv. And yes, it is turkish. I never thought that turkish people are capable of such emotions on screen. This series I am about to talk about here, is an adaptation of Aşk-ı Memnu, a novel wrote by Halit Ziya Uşaklıgil in 1900.

.Imagine

The novel had been adapted before for television in 1975 into a mini-series (I haven’t seen yet). But the one in 2008 had the biggest impact on people everywhere. It has been subtitled and dubbed in 10 languages and even BBC made a short documentary about it.

Aşk-ı Memnu is the story of two rich and influent families in Istanbul. The events in this adaptation take place exactly between 2008-2010.

First episode starts with the arrangements for the wedding of Peyker Yöreoğlu, the eldest daughter of Melih and Firdevs Yöreoğlu. She is about to marry Nihat Önal and she’s already pregnant with their first child. Her mother, Firdevs, doesn’t seem very happy about the iminent event and she turns extremely angry when she finds out that her rival, Hilmi Önal (Nihat’s father), made his son to present his future wife a marriage agreement. But Firdevs finds soon that she can use this agreement for her own sake, so she agrees to let Peyker sign it with one condition: Nihat will give her 1 million turkish lira. Peyker doesn’t know about this agreement, so she is happy she can go on with her wedding with the man she loved.xgb6zlaqzm9k9ma

Firdevs was quite broke after Melih, her husband, died of a heart attack when he found out she was having a relationship with a younger man.pizap.com13603633816409 His company was already bankrupt while he was still alive, and he suggested his wife that they might be urged to give up the house they were living in. But Firdevs was the kind of woman who never accepts giving up without fight, so she kept the house in spite of everything. The problem was that now she didn’t had money to pay for the house and for the luxurious life she was used with. That’s why the amount of money she took from Nihat, payed a part of her debts.

Firdevs has another daughter, Bihter, who is 25 years old. She constantly fights with her mother about everything. Bihter accuses Firdevs for the death of Melih and for that matter she cannot forgive her.

Bihter finds out about the money her mother took from Nihat and hates her even more for this gesture. Bihter often goes to cemetery to visit her father’s grave. There, she meets Adnan Ziyagil, the head of another rich family. He is a succesfull businessman, a widower and father of two children, Nihal age 17 and Bülent who’s 11. Adnan was present at the funerals of Melih Yöreoğlu some years before, when he was obviously impressed by the beauty and sensitivity of young Bihter. Nowadays, he sees her again, almost everyday, visiting Melih’s grave, while he himself visits the grave of his wife, Inci. One day, he gathers his courage and approaches Bihter, who seems open to any conversation. Adnan proposes to her and she says “Yes”, but doesn’t tell anything to Firdevs. Bihter was conscious that Firdevs wanted Adnan for herself, because a marriage with him would’ve pay all her debts.

Adnan came to Yöreoğlu mansion to ask Firdevs her daughter’s hand in marriage. Firdevs reacted badly, implying that Adnan is way too old for her daughter and that this marriage will never take place as long as she’s alive. Bihter assures Adnan that she doesn’t care about her mother’s decisions and that she will marry him no matter what. Picture 2014-01-05 19_50_02Firdevs talks to the lawyer so he could pay a part of her debt with the money she received from Nihat. Then she goes to Adnan’s mansion and she eventually agrees with him marrying Bihter.

Hilmi Önal finds out about the money that his son gave to Firdevs and he buys all her debts. So now, Firdevs is in debt only to him. Firdevs goes to his office and they have a fight. Hilmi throws her out yelling that he will take everything away from her.pizap.com136041572765616

Adnan and Bihter’s wedding take place at Yöreoğlu mansion. Hilmi appears and tells Adnan in front of all the guests, that Firdevs is selling her daughters and that he did a terrible mistake by marrying Bihter. He is thrown out, but everyone is embarressed. Bihter is angry with her mother.

That evening, she has a car crash trying to kill herself out of despair. pizap.com13603628384682While she is in surgery, Bihter finds out about Firdev’s ex-lover. He tells Bihter that Firdevs had a choice: she could’ve ran away with him, but she refused to leave her daughters without mother.

Firdevs gets better, but she has to keep her neck imobilized. She gets out of the hospital and Bihter with Adnan take her to live with them. Adnan pays the rest of her debts in spite of Bihter.

In the house with Adnan and his children there was also a kind of nephew of Adnan. Behlül Haznedar was an orphan and his real uncle left him in Adnan’s care because he couldn’t took care of a little boy. Behlül raised along with Nihal and Bülent.  For that matter, Nihal was very in love with him, but he didn’t know that. In the same time, Beşir, the family’s driver, also raised by Adnan, was in love with Nihal, but the girl didn’t know and he was afraid to tell her.

Things in the house start to change a little more every day. Firdevs seems to know everything that happends behind close doors thanks to her instinct and to her maid, Katya. pizap.com13599721634216Bihter soon falls in love with Behlül, even thought she is married to his uncle and they live under the same roof. Firdevs finds out about her daughter’s obssession and tries to change her mind. They fight even more on this subject. Bihter even tries to kick Firdevs out of the house, but Firdevs threatens her to tell everything to Adnan.

Hilmi continues to attack Firdevs, now through Adnan, because they are part of the same family. Firdevs tries to kill herself one more time, this time by taking pills, but she is rescued in time by Katya and Deniz de Courton. Deniz was the children’s tutor. She helped Adnan raise them after his wife’s death.  Deniz is secretely in love with Adnan and suffered very much when he got married to Bihter, but remained in the house for the sake of Nihal and Bülent, who needed her.

Firdevs finds out about Deniz’s secret feelings for Adnan and tells Bihter about it. Bihter gets angry and tries to send Deniz away, but then she stops because she thinks that Deniz might also know about her passion for Behlül.118

Seeing that Firdevs can’t do anything to break up Nihal and Behlül (because the scheme with the ex-girlfriend didn’t work), Bihter is ready to leave again and take Behlül with her this time.  Behlül tells her constatly that she is insane and that he can’t do this to his uncle, Adnan, who raised him and gave him everything. Bihter thinks that he is in total denial, but Behlül really seems to want to get married to Nihal. They even do the engagement party and Adnan with Nihal gives Behlül a yacht as a wedding present. resim6Meanwhile, Beşir, the family driver, knows too about the adultery, he even caughts Behlül and Bihter on a tape and threatens Behlül that he will reveal it to Adnan if he hurts Nihal in any way. Eventualy, Behlül convinces Beşir to give him the CD he made, without knowing that Beşir still had a copy of it in the computer.
