P.s. Before diving into this article, you should read another article we had written in which you can learn more about the story and other details with regard to the series.
A Huge Fan Base of Sen Çal Kapımı
First of all, we must tell you this: The series is commercially one of the most successful Turkish TV shows. In addition, it is one of the most-watched series of the week as well as having the biggest fan group. But wait a minute: to what does the series owe this incredible success? How can we explain that the series having more than 1.7 million followers on Instagram? Because it huge, isn’t it?
Then, let’s take a step back and see what is going on in Sen Çal Kapımı?
A Brief Summary of Sen Çal Kapımı
Eda (played by Hande Erçel) is a girl who lost her mother and father and lives a humble life with her aunt. She is also studying at university with a scholarship and earns a scholarship to continue her education in Italy.
Her family, by the way, is from Mardin. In fact, the financial situation on the father’s side is very good, but they broke the relationship.
As for Serkan Bolat (played by Kerem Bürsin), he is one of the partners of the company that gives scholarships to Eda. Selin (played by Bilge Önal), with whom he has been together for a long time, is about to marry now, which he does not approve of. So, Serkan is a very disciplined, prescriptive, even a little harsh type.
Serkan also has a dark past. He lost his brother in a traffic accident, he loves his mother very much. His mother was unable to leave the house after the accident and she has agoraphobia. Namely, she is an intrusive woman who wants to control everything.
We Need Hostility and Here is What We’ve Got!
Eda’s arch-enemy becomes Serkan Bolat after this time. Serkan, who stopped her scholarship, and thus, prevented her from going abroad. Even more, Serkan also caused Eda to stay away from her lover.
Eda’s girlfriend has already gone to Italy. If the scholarship had continued, she would have been gone, too. However, from now on, whether she goes to Italy or not, it doesn’t matter anymore as her lover has already found there someone else.
The More Hostility We Have, The More Attractive the Series Gets!
Therefore, here is another enemy that Serkan has! In the universe of TV series, all businessmen have a businessman enemy. Serkan also hates Kaan (played by İsmail Ege Şaşmaz), who is trying to take over the company.
This is why he does not want his ex-lover Selin (played by Bilge Önal) to marry Kaan’s friend Ferit. So, he’s still not in love with Selin or anything. His one and only fear are that the possibility they may aim to take over the company.
Paths Cross in Sen Çal Kapımı!
We distributed a lot, let’s collect it. Serkan is coming to Eda’s school for the conference. Eda cries out there for the cut scholarships and disgraces Serkan. Even, she draws his car and writes on Serkan’s car. By the way, Serkan does not know that the scholarships are cut. So, he is not quite guilty.
Then, following this incident, Serkan takes Eda into his car and they set off-road together. As they handcuffed together, he asks her to spend the day together with him.
A Collaboration Develops Between Serkan and Eda
In short, first, a mandatory collaboration develops between Serkan and Eda because he needs to pretend like Eda is his girlfriend. And Eda has to accept this role-play because Serkan promises to give Eda’s scholarship back.
This is a 2-month-long agreement, which means if Eda agrees to pretend as Serkan’s girlfriend, Serkan will return her scholarship back at the end of this time. However, they overtake seriously this game, give poses to the magazine, make interviews together in front of cameras. Thus, the whole country, Turkey, deem there is a love between the two. But funny thing is that there is love in progress!
