Black Money Love- more than just a movie review!

June 26, 2020

One of the effects of the COVID lockdown was an increase of movies my family was watching, primarily being Black Money Love, a Turkish soap opera.

Besides the โ€˜eye-poppingโ€™ beauties (which I wonโ€™t go into in this paper ๐Ÿ˜Š), the serial is actually very interesting to watch.

Its directing and acting is on par with any Hollywood soap; alongwith scenes, production sets and story line; and the actors โ€ฆ ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“ va va voom!

Naturally, like many soaps, there were moments of being โ€œover the topโ€ ๐Ÿ˜Š and crying โ˜น (the latter, not my cup oโ€™ tea) โ€ฆ and my!  LOTS OF SMOOCHING ๐Ÿ’“!

However, besides being an action drama it shows the culture and character of modern Turkey –

  • It is a conservatively run country
  • A moderate society
  • A MODERN society!
  • Western & Eastern cultures exist together
  • Conservative & Liberal outlooks live alongside each other
  • High standards of living
  • Educated & talented youth

Turkey is a Muslim state, with a conservative government, but a progressive & modern outlook.

No country is ideal but similar cultures can adapt best practices and standards from each other. 

It is not an overnight change- it is a generational one

โ€ฆbut it can happen.

(The villainโ€™s acting is SUPER! ๐Ÿ˜Š โ€“ he absolutely outdid himself!)
