Ever since Turkish series Ertugrul started airing on PTV, there has been a massive craze of Turkish drama following in the country. However, we cannot attribute this to PTV alone as before PTV, channel Urdu 1 had done the deed of having Turkish dramas dubbed in Urdu and airing on the channel some years ago.
The following was crazy and people fell in love with Turkish content. Since we couldn’t see the Indian saas bahu dramas on our channels after the huge ban, the Pakistani audience went for Turkish dramas with a mighty force. Some of the best ones were even dubbed in Urdu for the awaam here.
However, right now, if you’re looking for watching a really good Turkish series, here we bring you a list of all binge-watch worthy Turkish dramas.
Lets start off with our list;
Here are the best Turkish dramas you should watch.
Ask I Memnu aka Ishq E Mamnoon
This could easily be that very first drama that introduced Pakistanis to Turkish dramas. With a story revolving around a rich older man falling in love with the daughter of a woman who liked him, Ishq E Memnu starred Kivanç Tatlitug and Beren Saat in the lead. The drama drove Pakistani audiences crazy and people turned to the entertainment Turkish dramas offered.
Fatima Gul aka Fatmagül’ün Suçu Ne
Again, this drama starred Beren Saat and the story revolved around a rape survivor and her struggle to get justice from the rich and powerful. Fatima Gul had a moving story that made you realize how real the struggle for justice truly is.
Following the story of a girl who seeks to avenge her father’s imprisonment for a crime he didn’t commit, and his untimely death in prison, Intikaam was based on an English drama titled Revenge that aired on ABC TV.

Feriha aka Adini Feriha Koydum
Starring Hazal Kaya, Feriha, was the story of a poor girl trying to fit in with the elite and falling in love with a rich boy. Feriha had 3 seasons but we’d recommend you to watch the first two as they had a rather catchy storyline going on.
