If you are looking for one of the best television series then this is high-time you should start watching Ask Laftan Anlamaz. This story is amazing and the chemistry between the two lead roles is breath-taking. It is such a wonderful and splendid love story that starts with Hayat and Murat.

Though the story is a bit different from the regular ones that we often see, it will surely make a huge place in your heart. The series is Turkish but people from around love watching this series. Ask Laftan Anlamaz is a gem of a show. The viewers of this show have claimed it to be the best romantic drama. Both the lead characters, Hayat and Murat are very attractive and they make a great couple. Their chemistry, acting skills, look, style, expressions, physique, dressing style etc. is absolutely perfect as well as unique. The character Murat is quiet, calm and innocent and on the other hand, Hayat is emotional, loving and joyful. Hence, when two people of such characters come together then the chemistry is just more than perfect.

Ask Laftan Anlamaz is the Turkish of the English sentence, “Love does not understand words”. This show was broadcasted on the channel Show TV. This Turkish television series was premiered on the 15th of June, 2016. It stars two very good-looking characters Hande Ercel and Burak Deniz which are the Hayat and Murat real names. The set up of the series is in Istanbul and it follows a romance of workplace at a very successful multinational company. The whole series has 31 episodes and only one season. All of the episodes of this series are available online so, if you want then you can binge watch it anytime.

Cast and character of Aşk Laftan Anlamaz

Ask Laftan Anlamaz is basically centred on two main characters, Hayat and Murat. Hande Ercel plays the role of Hayat Uzun and Burk Deniz plays the role of Murat Sarsilmaz. Other than these two the Ask Laftan Anlamaz cast also have Metin Akpinar, Metehan Kuru, Ozcan Tekdemir, Merve Cagiran etc. who played various roles in this series. Each and every character of this series is very nicely built and all of the actors are very professional and skilled. They all have played their role with absolute brilliance. While watching the Hayat and Murat drama to write this in-depth review, I totally forgot that this is a series.

At some points, during the series, I felt like this is a real life story as the acting and performance of all of them were really natural. If you have not watched this series already then you should start watching it. Ask Laftan Anlamaz in Hindi is unavailable but you can get Ask Laftan Anlamaz in English. The Ask Laftan Anlamaz English subtitles are also available on internet. So, even if you do not understand Turkish language then you do not need to worry about it as you have the subtitles to understand the dialogue, story and every detail of the series.

The character of Murat Sarslimaz is the best. These types of guys are only found in dreams. You will feel like he has just walked straight out of the imagination. Murat is a combination of rich and gentle guy who is hardworking, successful, charming and intelligent. This perfect lead role falls head over heels in love with his employee. However, after a certain time he finds out that the girl was lying and this broke his heart to pieces. In spite of all this, this true gentleman marries this girl. Murat real name is Burk Deniz. I would say he is the best fit for this role. No other male actor would be able to fit in this role with such perfection.

The real name of Hayat is Hande Erçel. She is an angel in the body of a woman. She looks stunning and executed her role pretty perfectly. Though at some points you will feel like the character of this lead is quite confusing, in the end she is able to fix her clichéd role in the right way. The role is bit confusing because, the character is always demanding Murat to be truthful and honest to her but on the other hand, she is the one lying to Murat all the time, at some points, the viewer feels that the whole existence of Hayat is a deception to Murat. However, the character is very strong, outspoken and joyful which complements the character of Murat. So, even if the character of Hayat feels a bit unwelcoming to you, their chemistry and love in the series will make you forget about the problems she has.

We can say that, both of the characters have their on uniqueness and style. They complement each other with not just face but acting skills, looks and get-up as well.

Here is a scene from Ask Laftan Anlamaz Episode on with english subtitle:

Hayat Uzun is the daughter of a fisherman who is under the pressure of securing her job in Istanbul otherwise she will have to return to her village to her family. Due to some mistake in the identity she gains a good job in a multinational textile company which is headed by Nejat Sarsilmaz. She becomes the personal assistant of the lead male actor, Murat Sarsilmaz who is the son and heir of the owner of the company. As Murat starts to fall for Hayat, this provokes jealousy in the ex-girlfriend of Murat, Didem who is the lead model of this multinational textile company. This is how the story goes on.

They face obstacle when they are in love with each other but they somehow manages everything nicely and continue their relationship. The story goes on and they face problems and issues but however, they are able to solve each of them nicely. As the series is consists of just 31 episodes and as the makers of the show do not have any plan to come up with another series of Ask Laftan Anlamaz.
