Before we begin
Sen Çal Kapımı (You Knock My Door/Dastak Mere Dil Pe) is a Turkish romantic comedy drama series. And you all know my love for rom-coms. I have already revieweing a few other turkish rom-coms.
Relationship Status: Complicated (Ayeshagul): This one has the best heroine of all rom-coms – Aysegul. The story is dragging, though.
Tera Mera Pyar : Very adorable couple and very witty lines. Love Ayse & Kerim.
Emergency Pyar : It isn’t really a rom-com. Very little romance and very little comedy and the two aren’t even related. The heroine is annoying and only Abidin brings the comic relief. Only 4 episodes to go and then I will be rid of this burden.
Pyar Lafzon Mein Kahan: It was a very on-again off-again relationship.
I have been meaning to watch Sen Çal Kapımı for almost a year. The problem is, I found a website which had listed all key events and the detailed article spoiled it for me. I mean, this drama goes through some pretty bizarre twists and turns. Besides, this drama has two seasons. It is never a good idea. I watched Emergency Pyar, and they could not maintain the contniuity of the two seasons. All I’m saying is, I have my apprehensions about this dizi.
But then, last week, I saw a few Urdu dubbed episodes of the drama, and I thought–why not?
Alright, with the basics established, let get to know the cast and characters.
