The Turkish serial ‘Fatmagul’ is a much talked about serial which is being aired on Zindagi channel. The plot is moving and bound to keep you engaged.
It is based on the novel written by Vedat Turkali, a famous turkish novelist.The story revolves around Fatmagul played by the attractive Beren Saat who is the main protagonist, a young and a simple turkish girl who stays with her brother and her sister-in-law. She helps them run a dairy shop. The serial is set in the scenic and breathtaking shorelines of Turkey.
Fatmagul is engaged to marry a fisherman named Mustafa (Firat Celik) and she’s eagerly waiting to tie the knot as she desires to get away from her nagging sister-in-law. Kerim (Engin Akyurek) is a blacksmith who stays with his aunt Meryam. During an extravagant engagement ceremony between two influential parties, Kerim meets his old friend Vural as well as his cousins Selim and Erdogan. Selim is the rich cousin who got engaged.
These four young hunks wish to continue the celebrations way into the night, even after the party, by going on a drinking spree. During the early hours of the morning, Fatmagul goes to to bid farewell to Mustafa who is going on a fishing trip. It is during this period that she encounters the inebriated gang of boys. Being intoxicated with drinks and drugs, they gang rape Fatmagul. Later, Kerim’s aunt Meryam discovers ravaged Fatmagul, the next morning while she was picking herbs. The whole town is fuming with anger over the incident and she’s even shunned by her own ‘fiance’ whom she loves a lot. Mustafa had been fed with false information about her.
Justice eludes Fatmagul due to the plotting and scheming of the rich perpetrators. She looses all hope in her fight for justice and her desire to live. Fortunately, Meryam, Kerim’s aunt is a source of strength to Fatmagul and she supports her during this entire ordeal. This depicts that a woman can be a source of strength to another woman. If women support and stand up for each other then no force can subdue them. Women are naturally bestowed with mental grit and will power and if we join forces and become one, this world will surely be a better place.
But the irony is that in many atrocities that are taking place against women, there is also a woman who is hand in glove with the wrongdoers. In this case, Fatmagul’s sister-in-law makes her life miserable. She emotionally tortures Fatmagul and makes her life further complicated.
Kerim takes the blame for the entire incident and accepts to marry Fatmagul, though Kerim is not sure whether he really was a part of the crime or not. He was totally passed out when the gang rape took place. Kerim agrees to marry Fatmagul, buckling under the pressure of the rich and influential perpetrators. They are also his friends and cousins. They assume that the easiest way to get out of this mess, was by getting Kerim married to Fatmagul as they both belong to the same strata of society.
This confirms that many grave crimes like rape are hushed under the influence of power and money. Ironically even today, it’s the rape victims who carry the stigma for no fault of theirs. This serial also points out that not many people are willing to marry a rape victim. How many men would have the courage or integrity to enter into a wedlock with a rape victim, whether it is love or arranged? In the last episode, Vural confesses to Kerim that he was innocent after all, that Kerim had nothing to do with the crime.
Will Fatmagul finally get justice? Will she finally fall in love with Kerim who is married to her but whom she hates the most as she believes that he’s part of the crime? Or will Mustafa whom Fatmagul loves a lot come back to her life? To know the ending, stay tuned to Zindagi channel where this serial is being aired from Monday to Saturday at 8:50 pm. Do watch.

What I loved was how there is so much in the movie of the SRK we have known, and also a totally new star. The gestures, the smile, the wit and the charisma are all too familiar, but you also witness a rawness, an edginess.
When a movie that got the entire nation in a twist – for the right and wrong reasons – hits the theatres, there is bound to be noise. From ‘I am going to watch it – first day first show’ to ‘Boycott the movie and make it a flop’, social media has been a furore of posts.
Let me get one thing straight here – I did not watch Pathaan to make a statement or to simply rebel as people would put it. I went to watch it for the sheer pleasure of witnessing my favourite superstar in all his glory being what he is best at being – his magnificent self. Because when it comes to screen presence, he burns it, melts it and then resurrects it as well like no other. Because when it comes to style and passion, he owns it like a boss. Because SRK is, in a way, my last connecting point to the girl that I once was. Though I have evolved into so many more things over the years, I don’t think I am ready to let go of that girl fully yet.
There is no elephant in the room really here because it’s a fact that Bollywood has a lot of cleaning up to do. Calling out on all the problematic aspects of the industry is important and in doing that, maintaining objectivity is also equally imperative. I went for Pathaan for entertainment and got more than I had hoped for. It is a clever, slick, witty, brilliantly packaged action movie that delivers what it promises to. Logic definitely goes flying out of the window at times and some scenes will make you go ‘kuch bhi’ , but the screenplay clearly reminds you that you knew all along what you were in for. The action sequences are lavish and someone like me who is not exactly a fan of this genre was also mind blown.
Recent footage of her coming out of an airport had comments preaching karma and its cruel ways, that Samantha "deserved her illness" because she filed for divorce.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu fell from being the public’s sweetheart to a villain overnight because she filed for divorce. The actress was struck with myositis post divorce, much to the joy of certain groups (read sexist) in our society.
A troll responded to Samantha’s tweet, “Women Rising!!” by adding to it “just to fall”. She replied, “Getting back up makes it all the more sweeter, my friend.”
Here’s another insensitive tweet by BuzZ Basket showing fake concern for her autoimmune disease. “Feeling sad for Samantha, she lost all her charm and glow. When everyone thought she came out of divorce strongly and her professional life was seeing heights, myositis hit her badly, making her weak again.” Samantha responded, “I pray you never have to go through months of treatment and medication like I did. And here’s some love from me to add to your glow.”
