Shahmaran is a series created by Pınar Bulut starring Serenay Sarikaya and Burak Deniz. An interesting and mysterious proposal that you can see on Netflix as of right now.
Şahmaran is a Turkish series that is halfway between mythological, cultural, social and, even horror. This is a series about a rather special community of people who feel they are descendants of Sahmaran and, obviously, this means they have a special destiny.
The series features Serenay Sarikaya who fits the role and the physique as she searches for her grandfather.
This is a series about predictions, mysteries and characters that suddenly appear in eight episodes that are nothing like the Hollywood we know, (if we are a little too Westernized), it does have similarities with Stephen King´s novels about communities and hidden mysteries among their inhabitants, but with a Turkish rhythm, and above all, that special approximation, so sensitive and personal that the characters have.
As usual, whether you like it or not, you decide, the matter here is to find the rhythm and identify with the story and the characters.
A story about mystery, beliefs, faith… and what comes after.
Sahsu is determined to confront his grandfather, who left his mother years ago in Adana, where he went as a lecturer. On this journey, he finds himself in the middle of an unusual and mysterious community called Mar, descended from Sahmaran. Believing in the legend of Shahmaran, one of the greatest symbols of love and wisdom, the Mar race awaits the completion of the historical prophecy with the arrival of Sahsu. Nothing will be the same again when Sahsu and Maran cross paths.
