Kurulus Osman Urdu Season 02 Episode 117 – 17 October 2021 – Har Pal Geo : Kurulus Osman series focuses on the life of Osman Bey, the son of Ertugrul Gazi and the founder of the Ottoman Empire. Osman begins his journey by forming a friendship with Yorgopolos and the Kayi tribe expands its influence further during the reign of Osman Ghazi, but some problems hinder Osman and he must solve it.
Osman faces many enemies and traitors in his quest and overcomes the obstacles. Osman also marries his love, Bala, amid his reign. He fulfills his missions with the help of his loyal companions, family, and friends.
Aya Nikola is sent to become the new Tekfur of İnegöl followed by Ertuğrul’s return in the tribe. Meanwhile, Yavlak Arslan, the new Uç Bey, seeks to create his own state and sees Osman as an obstacle, later on they unite against the new threat created by the new Han of the İlhanlı (transl. Ilkhanate), who allies with Nikola against the Turks of Anatolia. Bala also faces the arrival of Targun, Nikola’s spy who allies with Osman to save her father, İnal Bey.
Along with these problems, Osman is elected as the new Bey after his father’s death, whilst he decides to marry a second wife according to his father’s will. After Targun’s death, Osman meets Malhun Hatun and initiates a major battle with the Byzantines, historically known as the Battle of Mount Armenia, as well as trying to find the traitor in the Kayı, as his jealous uncle Dündar helps the Byzantines stir traps for him. Following the arrival of Ömer Bey, father of Malhun Hatun, Geyhatu sends Kara Şaman Togay, son of Baycu Noyan, to eliminate both Osman’s Kayı and Ömer’s Bayındır.
Osman brings in a different kind of energy, a rebel who would not compromise Islamic/Turkish values no matter how things get difficult the moto is Freedom (Huryat) or martyrdom (shahadat), hasn’t reached yet the wisdom of a leader however has all the right ingredients to become one. The story is presenting Osman as a vulnerable, Pragmatic and a strong-willed believer who yields to no one.
Season one, is more like the making of Osman Bey from a Raw leader to a seasoned one under the patronage of influential Islamic leader Shaikh Edebali. The disruptive energy Osman brings in on screen would make you believe only such energy can breakthrough and establish a state. The writer nailed it in terms of differentiating between Ertugrul’s character and Osman’s, although both characters has many in common yet Osman’s character is an evolved version, coupled with unsettling vibe & sense of humor.
Osman & Bala Hatun, to those who cannot rest without making obvious comparison between the new couple with the old one (Ertugrul & Halime) think about it this way your parent’s classic love story and today’s vibrant intense younger couple love story who wants to achieve together.
Bala Hatun’s character is precisely what Osman needs in order to become who he needs to become, a young, strong believer of the cause who were also raised to become a warrior unlike halime who despite presenting strength yet always ended up being fragile & broken. The Chemistry between the two is just mind blowing, I can’t fathom why the fact Osman appearing as 10 years older than Bala is so appealing. Every scene they share together, the energy of intense love vibrates off the screen. Simply mesmerizing. Kudus to Ozge Torer ! My advice , get hooked.
