Ertugrul is a historic biopic of a brave Gazi, who was the father of Osman (founder of the Ottoman Empire). Ertugrul was the son of Suleyman Shah, who was the leader of Kayi Tribe of the Oghuz Turks.

This series, however, is a depiction of the pre-Ottoman Empire reign.

Dirilis Ertugrul is a history inspired make by a privately owned Turkish media house. The lead role being played by Engin Altan Duzyatan who has played this role immaculately and has managed to gain so much fame and recognition by the audience, not only in Turkey or those familiar with Turkish language but all around the world, especially Pakistan.

Ertugrul has become the ideal for many girls who are unmarried and are now demanding their future husband to be like Ertugrul. Well jokes apart, it is a fact that our religion also conveys the same message of love and peace with your wife (should she be a noble and pious one too).

Not only this , Ertugrul is a real life hero who is much needed at this time, when the Muslim Community is facing a religious turmoil. In this era of fitna (read fiasco), Gazis like Ertugrul are very much needed.

Dirilis Ertugrul is a series of drama that has been divided into 5 seasons. It is also called ‘Resurrection: Ertugrul’.

After a successful release on Netflix, where our current Prime Minister Imran Khan binge watched it, PM Imran Khan requested it to be dubbed in Urdu language for Pakistani audience. His vision behind this initiative was to enlighten Islamic history and omit the false believes that have been rooted inside Pakistani Muslims so deep that everything Islam initially taught is condemned and misinterpreted. Another reason behind this initiative was to instill within the Pakistanis, the real manners and etiquettes taught by Islam years ago.

Dirilis Ertugrul has been streamed online on various platforms other than Netflix. Many have taken the responsibility of dubbing it in various languages.

Dirilis Ertugrul is Urdu dubbed by Pakistan Television (PTV), which is a state run television network. It is aired on PTV and is also uploaded on the official YouTube channel of Pakistan Television (PTV).

The views on the YouTube channel of PTV have been phenomenal with over 400,000 views within the first 24 hours of uploading.

Considering, Ertugrul is a depiction of what happened almost 700 years ago (7 centuries), it has made people relive those moments, enlightening the real Islam, passion for Islamic Community and ethics that have gone missing.

To sum up in a nutshell, Ertugrul is a great way to relive the moments of history and reminisce history in such a way, so as to get the courage to pick optimism and the urge of never giving up from our real Islamic heros.

The picture quality is High Definition which also becomes one of the biggest reason to watch it. Also, the Urdu dubbing has been done tremendously. The language used is easy and dialogue delivery is clear.

Keep watching Ertugrul and if you have not started watching it, now is the time to start watching before you miss out on it.

Also, just a little trigger for you to watch it, that many people say it is just more than Game of Thrones.
