Ask Laftan Anlamaz (Pyar Lafzon Mein Kahan) is a Turkish romantic comedy drama television series. And you all know how much I enjoy rom-coms. I’ve already written reviews for three other Turkish rom-coms.
Relationship Status (Ayeshagul): Complicated Aysegul is the best heroine in all of rom-coms. However, the story drags.
Tera Mera Pyar: A very cute couple with very witty lines. I adore Ayse and Kerim.
Pyar’s Emergency: It’s not really a rom-com. There’s very little romance and even less comedy, and the two aren’t even related. Only Abidin provides comic relief because the heroine is annoying. Only four episodes remain before I am free of this burden.
I started by watching a few clips of Hayat and Murat’s best and most romantic scenes. It was enough to pique my interest in this drama.
Now that we’ve covered the fundamentals, let’s get to know the cast and characters.
