Recently, PTV has been showing the popular Turkish series “Resurrection Ertugrul,” which is described as a “Turkish Game of Thrones” and dubbed in Urdu. The drama, which consists of five seasons, is based on the life and reign of the first ruler of the Ottoman Empire, Ertugrul, the son of Suleiman Shah, who paved the way for the founding of the Ottoman Empire. An action-adventure serial full of sword fights, Dirilis is based on stories of the medieval campaigns of Muslim Oghuz Turks, fighting invading Mongols, Christian Byzantines, and the fanatic Knights Templar Crusaders in Anatolia ( now modern-day Turkey ) of the 12th century.
It’s a good and entertaining show with a compelling plot that keeps the audience on their toes. Fans of the show flooded social media with comments praising the cast of the show. The historical drama was shot in the Riva district of Istanbul on the story Ottoman Empire’s occupation of Turkey from the 16th to 17th centuries and the 18th century. This series, which runs from 2014 to 2019, takes the viewer through the dramatized events that ultimately led to the founding of the Ottoman Empire. There is no doubt that Dirilis continues to attract viewers, no matter how much time has passed since the first show.
The popularity of the series in Pakistan is so great that Engin Altan Duzyatan has recorded a special message for fans of this series, on the recent Eid-ul-Fitr. The drama is based on the life of Dirilis Ertugul, who was the father of Osman, a member of an Ottoman dynasty that ruled a large part of the world for more than 600 years. The strong message that emerged in collaboration with the director of the first Dirilis series, Ali Akbar Khan, speaks for itself. The play reflects the actual Islamic values and teaches the importance of respect for the elderly and help for the needy, as well as the need for independence and respect for others.
As a story it is straightforward and similar to many other stories: a hero and his companions pitted against the odds. Like other stories, this one needs to be understood in the context of the history of the time, and of those particular surroundings. Ertugrul’s producers have spent a lot of money and time on enhancing the quality of action scenes, even hiring a famous Hollywood stunt team, NOMAD, for the purpose. Look deeper into the show and you will see that each episode delivers both spiritual and life lessons by allowing principle characters to talk directly about moral dilemmas and their resolution.
