Recent times have surely shown a drastic rise in the viewership and popularity of Turkish dramas as the stories and actors have appealed to audiences across the world. Another such masterpiece was released on 5th February 2023, Sunday – Erkeğe Güven Olmaz (EGO). This crime thriller aptly portrays the intricate meaning behind its English title- ‘Men cannot be Trusted,’ and what goes behind the scenes with deceptive men who mislead sensible and sensitive women by holding their feelings captive.
These women do not deserve the mistrust, devastation, and hurt that collapses over them because of the insidious intentions of the opposite gender. Erkeğe Güven Olmaz (EGO) deals with the revenge that women plan for the men who play with their emotions, toying with them like puppet strings to engender the same pain upon the men who betrayed them.

But, this heavenly time of their lives gets rained down upon with the shocking news of Erhan’s betrayal and the consequences, which are now to be dealt. A huge debt to be paid is one of them.
