FATMA is a new Netflix thriller series from Turkey, produced by Basak Abacigil and created as well as directed by Ozgur Onurme. However, just because it’s Turkish means that you’re not even considering giving it a chance, then you may be missing out. The title character is fascinating in an exceedingly new way. She is both invisible and impossible to not being looked at.
Fatma Yılmaz (Burcu Biricik), a shy lady who cleans people’s homes and offices in Istanbul, is edgy because her husband Zafer ( Ferit Kaya) has gone into hiding after being discharged from jail. Whenever her phone rings, she picks it up thinking it’s him; it can be him, however, she simply hears silence. She goes to a restaurant where a number of his associates hang around, however her property owner Ismail (Deniz Hamzaoğlu) warns her off, telling her that everyone knows Zafer and doesn’t want to see him blacken their door again.
Practically every person in this crime drama could be a bully in his or her way. Typically their hostility is active, just like the crime lords who scream at Fatma and threaten to show her into a prostitute to repay her husband’s debts. Typically they’re more delicate, like her author client who mansplains talkshows. Regardless of who they're, everybody during this show kinda hates Fatma and is uninterested in her husband-searching schtick.
Written by Ozgur Onurme, Fatma has a noteworthy plan behind it. What provides a normal person the impulse to kill, and what happens once that person finally acts on that impulse. Burcu Biricik puts in an exceedingly fine performance as Fatma, who we discover is precisely that kind of person. She looks meek and ineffectual, walking around Istanbul in her shapeless dresses and babushkas, looking just like a weary person with a grind of job she is. However, once her back is to the wall, well, she’s a force to be reckoned with.
The first episode shows that the folks she’s killing aren’t specifically reaching to be missed by the bigger society, however, it’s additionally obvious she’s not doing it in protection. Even though the desire in her comes out under fear and duress, it's there, and as she gets in deeper with Bayram, it’ll be fascinating to see if she embraces this facet of her or continues to fight against it.
For me, this can be the sort of series that would so simply be remade in America or even South Korea. It may well be remade in any country as a result of the story is thus very universal. Fatma is both a nobody and every woman. She’s tired and exhausted by the world, she’s been forced to survive in, and currently, she’s attempting to require a charge. Well, sort of.
The Fatma series consists of 6 episodes in this initial season. Whether or not this may be a restricted series or one that has multiple seasons continues to be unknown. Whatever any original plans might need been, we have to all accept that they will modify if the series could be a hit. And it deserves to be. Fatma is superb, bold, different, and scary!
Final Score – [7.5/10]
