Have you watched Turkish drama Wren (Calikusu) which is also known as Lovebird? This Turkish drama was adapted by Resat Nuri Guntekin’s famous Turkish novel. The book tells the story of an orphaned girl named Feride and her adventures in Anatolia as a young school teacher.
Turkish drama Wren – Lovebird (Calikusu) was broadcasted in 2013 and starred Burak Ozcivit and Fahriye Evcen.
However, this Turkish drama was cancelled before completion due to low episode ratings. Even though Resat Nuri Guntekin’s book has the largest section about Feride’s adventures in Anatolia, in this Turkish drama we could not see Feride became a teacher and lived in Anatolia.
One of the reasons why this Turkish drama could not achieve high episode ratings come from the fact that Turkish audience had already watched another version of Wren – Lovebird (Calikusu) years ago. The former version was made in 1986 and starred Aydan Sener and Kadir Kalav.
This version was totally in accordance with the original novel and Turkish actress Aydan Sener was so successful as a stubborn and naive school teacher.
If you want to know the original story of Lovebird – Wren (Çalıkuşu), we highly recommend you to watch the Turkish drama-1986 version. It is a mini series consisting of 7 episodes and you can easily find it in youtube. We hope that there will be subtitles for this Turkish drama as well.
I read the whole book of Lovebird(choliqushi) and also watched its both new and old films . Adimittedly, all of them are unique never repeat each other . Their meanings are the same, but emotion and feeling you feel from them are so different that I deeply love all of them. I strongly hope the film to be continue and wait with impatience to watch the other parts of the film.
Loved it! I really enjoyed watching Lovebird. I worked 10 hrs a day, 5 days a week but it took me 4 days to finish it. Please please please make more episodes….
It said low rating but I am curious. Did it end because Burak is doing Kurulus Osman? I am a really big fan of Ertugrul and Osman, also Uyanis. I enjoy turkish shows a lot…
Hey Valeria, just letting you know there’s a book on Amazon translated in English from start to finish….Kamran & Feride married after 6 years of separation, hope that makes you feel better 🤗
To all viewers who were left heartbroken 💔 know that Feride & Kamran reunited and got married after 5 years of separation, there’s a book on Amazon translated accurately in English telling the ending we never got to watch.
I fell. In love with Murat.. I cannot find the actor. Looks like a man of my dreams…
Beautiful film, great actors, ferude and karan played so real because they fell in love in real life its very beautiful, its so sad Guldisheker that dream then the green plums… Can’t stop crying
Was season two ever made its nearly 4am n I can’t sleep I can’t believe that’s the end, its sad, she cane as seen from Kamrans eyes? Yes I want more a happier ending I’m glad both actors fell in love and married and became parents. I watched this day and night, it’s so sad a little silly mistake and all their love suffering wasted, it’s no excuse that he was drunk that she seduced him because he says she’s dangerous but a man shouldn’t let him self fall in this trap if he truly loves which he did but alcohol makes u more excited but its sad that shows all men are like this even he loves her more than life he couldn’t resist another woman. Thus is what I went through and cannot trust men, need to test them with an attractive friend get them drunk to see if worth marrying one better it happens now than later, yes he though its over he was sad but how could he if he Stil loved Feredi….
Pls finish showing Calikusa the way it’s fans deserve it.
Loved the version with Ozcivit & Evcen. Would buy it if it was available! Sad when Netflix dropped it.
