PLOT: The story of 'Torun Turkey' can be summarized to one very specific concept: Youths of today trying to change the society for the better.
REVIEW: No matter how oblivious we may want to be, the undeniable fact remains that the current state of modern society is worsening at an alarming pace. The poor are getting poorer, the environment is suffering from pollution, and corruption is running rampant. The only ones who can save society from going down the dumps are the youths of today. And that is exactly the premise which 'Torun Turkey' bases itself upon. The serial focuses on a group of university students creating a “Social Club” where they hope to positively contribute to the society. But given how little people care about “the good of the society” nowadays, they find their club activities quite a challenging hurdle.
What's truly beautiful about 'Torun Turkey' is how much one can relate to the characters. Even though the primary characters seem like typical protagonists and the background characters apparent clichés, chances are you will find at least one character similar to you or someone you know. This gives the show a realistic appeal which many serials struggle to portray, and that alone makes the show worth-watching. However, the real charm of 'Torun Turkey' lies in its ultimate message: Save the society. The producer has put in serious effort to establish the show as a strong source of encouragement, and to be honest, he was quite successful. The serial features young people, who genuinely care for the society around them, trying to do something for the good of all. Even though they aren't successful all the time, their sincere endeavor is displayed as an act of good will; something worth learning from. The struggles they face are not too different from struggles modern day social enthusiasts face. But at the end of the day, even the slightest bit of sincerity helps. And if we all follow their example, maybe we truly can make Bangladesh a better place to live in.
