Tere Bin | Cast & Characters


Tere Bin is a new drama on HAR PAL GEO (Well, it’s not that new). Here’s a snippet from Geo’s official YouTube channel.

Meerab is an ambitious and beautiful young girl who wants to pursue higher studies. Her entire world revolves around her parents and she believes in them the most. Her strong and confident personality makes her stand against social injustices around her.

On the contrary, Murtasim hails from a powerful and influential family. He respects and values the morals and traditions of his family and refuses to let the family down.

Meerab’s life takes an unexpected turn when she finds out about her family’s decision regarding her and Murtasim’s life. Meerab’s hatred towards Murtasim continues to grow as a family secret from the past resurfaces. Coming from different backgrounds and mindsets, Murtasim begins to realize Meerab’s arrogant behaviour towards him and begins to consider her a challenge for himself. On the other hand, Meerab who is used to living her life on her own terms refuses to accept Murtasim’s family traditions and unnecessary social barriers.

Soon their lives go through a series of emotional sufferings and misunderstandings where it becomes difficult for them to coexist. Despite their hatred towards each other, will Meerab and Murtasim accept their true feelings or will the dynamics of ego and self-respect force them to stay apart?

First Impression

Let me start off with a disclaimer that I have watched all the episodes before I write this post. My first impression is–this seems familiar.

If you mix Dil Awaiz and Badzaat in a bag, you will get Tere Bin. The locations, the characters, the director, even some cast members, so many things in common in the mentioned dramas.

What distinguishes Tere Bin is well-written lead roles and the superb chemistry. Uff, the chemistry…

Also, no matter how I feel about the content of Geo, their production is always HD, and this team never fails to show us grandeur. For people like me who need our daily shot of escapism, this grandeur and splendour is “almost” the most important aspect in dramas.

So, here goes. Let’s meet the cast and characters, shall we?

Non-review Rant

I binged this drama last night and realized what I was missing on. First of all, I am an absolute fan of “hate to love” romances. There are some bits that I don’t like, but overall Meerub and Murtasim’s chemistry  overpowers some flaws it has. Haya’s track is a bit OTT so I won’t be including much of it in my recaps/reviews.


Until next review, please check out my books on Amazon.
