GOSSIP: Why Fatmagln Suu Ne (What was Fatmagul's Fault) Will not Be Another Ask-e-Mamnu


Why Fatmagln Suu Ne (What was Fatmagul's Fault) Will not Be Another Ask-e-Mamnu

It is a known fact that Ask-e-Mamnu is a major hit. However, before I move on with this topic, I have to clear a few things.

- Ask e Mamnu is a Turkish SOAP that aired on Urdu1. It wa sa heavily edited version that censored the intimate scenes from the SOAP that were in bundles.

- Again, it is a SOAP and not a SERIAL.

-It is NOT the highest rated SOAP. The highest rated SOAP is still ARY's "Khsuhboo Ka Ghar". However, Ask-e-Mamnu is considered a hit because of its low cost and no expectations. Itr was an experiment that succeeded. And now, why do I think that the next experiment (Fatimagul) will fail? Below is the reasoning!

In my honest opinion, Ask e Mamnu was a hit because it catered to a different kind of viewer. Ask e Mamnu did what Humsafar succeeded in. It increased the TV watching audience by making youth (college going people) watch the show again. However, Ask e Mamnu was no way a youth show due to its explicit theme.

Nevertheless, it is extremely popular among the youth. The reasons for that:

-The locales, dresses, jewellery etc.

-The good looking and fresh faces.

-The romantic story that offered a suspense

-Good direction

All these things combined made Ask e Mamnu a legend. And now the next on urdu1, also starring Beren Saat (Bihter) in my opinion will not be able to create history. Don't get me wrong, it is a compelling serial (well-made). I have seen rushes so I know.

It is the story of Fatmagul who is in love with a man who leaves her after she gets raped. Due to confusion and old customs, the girl is married to the man who blames himself for the events. This gives rise to a story of revenge, love and hatred, which continues for a few dozen episodes.

The story is intriguing, but it is not on the lines of Ask e Mamnu. It is not that glamorous. It offers romance, but that doesn't start in the initial episodes. Additionally, unlike Ask e Mamnu, this one is based in a small village/town.

I just don't feel it will connect, especially because it is again the story of bechari aurat (how many times have we seen it?) and people just don't wish to see it. Secondly, from what I have read, the SOAP got stretched and stretched, eventually losing fan base, unlike Ask-e-Mamnu that held on its own.

At this stage we can only predict… the image will be cleared when the serial goes on air in a few weeks.

If this one is also a major hit, then it would purely be for the quality, because it has it. But with our own industry having such powerful serials, we wonder who'd have the time to watch a dubber show

    what you said ARY is casting Beren Saat? is that true can we have more details?
    anyways this aishq e mamno thing was a bogus soap, but i agree with the reasons that you mentioned which made it a hit.

    Error Rectified!

    And we think ARY cannot cast her, even if it wants to.

    drama bagair dekhe negative remarks mar rahe hai app.
    just comparing rishes to a show on air is stupidity atleast watch the show and comment.
    the story is very different and gripping and series is absolutely first class!
    please apni opinions apne pass rakhe app kyu ke show shuru hone se pehle hi potential fanbase ko maar rahe hai, lagtahai paise khae hai kisi doosre network se URDU1 ki negative publicity ke liye!

    i happened to see the show on youtube as recommended by my freind studying abroad, It is absolutely entertaining, used to wait for weeks for new episodes to be uploaded. i was addicted from the very first episode. It has alot of suspense and romance. I think you gave an opinion just for the sake of it. Should have seen the show to remark first. I am looking forward to seeing it on URDU1 even though i have already seen it all already. that is the magic of the series. It is like humsafar, only better!

    thanks for giving spoilers away you idiot, how can a show succeed when you already gave the whole story away! RETARD!

    BEREN SAAT looks cute in the promos. and show looks good so far i will see the first 5-6 episodes to decide on my own if the show is worth watching, even though you have ruined the series for me!

    please dont have a comments section if you cant take negative criticism. please go watch the first episode which is available in english subtitle and then come back and write a better blog!

    its a beautiful story of overcoming your demons, trusting again and finding love. it will have a loyal fanbase atleast, if not a major one!

    your review left a bad taste in my mouth. comparing on basis of rushes only? sounds unprofessional!

    TO ALL THE PEOPLE READING THIS, THE SHOW IS VERY ADDICTIVE, AND THE MAIN LEADS ARE AN ENIGMATIC ON SCREEN COUPLE. IT MAY NOT BE EVERY ONES CUP OF TEA.DONT COMPARE TO ISHQE MEMNU ITS A DIFFERENT STORY BUT A VERY INTRIGUING ONE AND VERY CLOSE TO WITH WHAT HAPPENS IN OUR SOCIETY SO YOU MIGHT ACTUALLY FORM AN ASSOCIATION WITH THE CHARACTERS AND FEEL FOR THEM!

    ITS A MUST WATCH!!

    I am surprised people had to use CAPITALS and foul words to make their opinions clear. Firstly, we NEVER delete negative comments until they are abusive. Secondly, I have seen 1/3rd of the serial (Yes, I used the word rushes because I forwarded it in between). Thirdly, i actually praised the serial here.

    If you be unbiased and read the last para in "bold" then it clearly mentions that the show has "quality" but not mass appeal. This is an opinion based writing, and everyone has a right to disagree.

    The whole article NEVER talked negatively about the show. We thoroughly maintained that it has quality, but not the ones that Isk-e-Mamnu have (glamor etc).

    As long as spoiling the show is concerned, we are extremely sorry, but the official website and fan pages do a worse job.

    I think your article is very biased. I'm a Pakistani who watches Turkish shows quiet frequently and let me tell you that the glamour shown in Ask I Memnu is common in many Turkish Series. Ask I Memnu was famous due to a) because it was based on a novel that is very famous hence you already had an audience out there b) explicit scenes which I think Pakistani Channels didn't show c) 1st season is boring whilst second season caught more ratings in Turkey due to the season 1 finale. As for FGSN it's a totally different show and not to mention both leads are amazing actors sharing amazing chemistry, Engin Akyurek is one of the best leading actors in Turkey (he's even better than Kivanc aka Behlul as per Turkey's critics) and him and Beren gave a charm to the FGSN's story and kept the ratings higher and higher when it was competing against two major shows like Kurtlar Vadisi and Suskunlar. Secondly Fatmagul wasn't in love with her fiance this is very clearly clarified in the series, her true love is the one who will protect her after the rape incident. Season 1 however no doubt was better than season 2 as the writers were working on 2 series at the same time (and since Kivanc is their favourite actor they put more effort in his show than FGSN) and left many loopholes in season 2 of FGSN but despite that viewers were still hooked on show just to watch Kerim.
    So your comparison somewhat isn't comparable because both stories are different to begin with. It is 100x better than Pakistani show Humsafar.

      Sehar, i.e: The Fatamagul Fan, I'd say what I said there.
      "I don't want to say a single word about this after reading the last line. HUMSAFAR. PERIOD. Your opinion is respected and I stand by my own. And still say FMG is a good serial that, IMO, will not have the same audience as Isk e Mamnu. PERIOD!!!"

okay well i agreed that ishq-e-mamnu is an over rated soap
when i first saw it i was like "kya borbing drama hy yar" and after that i felt behlul-bheter relationship is disgusting . and what surprised me was it became more popular at that time and people were actually liking bheter and behlul couple. i was shocked. usually these people hate these kind of characters like in Maat people were hating saba qamar's character but in ishq-e-memnu case the complete opposite reaction of audience

but  i want to give credit to the dubbing team of this drama
dubbing was superb . i haven't seen this much dubbing from pakistan as i have seen in ishq-e-mamnu and in isabel

and abt fatima gul i think it is more promosing then ishq-e-mamnu
as the promos and the title track video is so good
and i m actually looking forward for this

See Ishq-e-mamnu was hit because it had a good story line.. and showed women in a more strong than men!!  
Fatema gul may not work maybe of our conservative thinking of our society about rape and all that... it all depends on audience acceptance..!!

But I will watch the soap if I get a good story!!
PS. Thanks
