‘Nothing like we have seen before’: 5 reasons why Dirilis Ertugrul is so popular in Pakistan
Do you agree?
Turkish drama series, Ertugrul Ghazi (Dirilis Ertugrul), recently aired in Pakistan and took everyone by storm. Ever since the first Urdu dubbed season aired, the series already has millions of Pakistani fans and the Prime Minister is no exception!
The story is that of Ertugrul Ghazi – the father of Osman Ghazi, who founded the Ottoman Empire that continued for 6 centuries. Inarguably, Ertugrul Ghazi is the most popular drama right now. Five reasons why Ertugrul Ghazi turned out to be a huge success:
Ertugrul Ghazi is nothing like our conventional Pakistani dramas. The historic drama connects with the viewer at psychological and emotional levels. The writer has beautifully penned down the story’s timeline in chronological order while making sure that nothing is overlooked.
The audience often remembers dramas for how they look rather than how they are told. Ertugrul Ghazi’s visuals assure a level of sensibility towards aesthetic representation, which bridges the gap between visuals and storytelling. They are breathtaking!
Ertugrul Ghazi is a good action drama with a distinctive style, and featuring grounded action that communicates the story.
Strong Female Characters
Series have been, and still are, a source of inspiration for many. They have the power to challenge our limits and invoke powerful emotions. Unlike the usual Pakistani dramas, Ertugrul portrays women as strong, brave and with an unbroken spirit in the face of enormous challenges.
The series is a journey of thought-provoking messages throughout. The series encapsulates the struggle of ‘Good vs Evil’ and that too by backing up with Quranic and Islamic teachings. The crux of the story is that “even after a very long run, goodness always wins!”
