Tere Bin | Episode 26


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?

Tere Bin Episode 26 Written Update and Review

Hello my lovely readers! It’s your favorite drama critic, Shabana Mukhtar, back again to review the latest episode of “Tere Bin.” In the past few weeks, you must have noticed the downwards spiral that this drama has taken. This episode was no different. And let me tell you, this episode was a rollercoaster of emotions – mostly frustration, anger, and disappointment.

Meerub Continues to Annoy

Let’s start with Meerub’s decision to take Rohail’s calls.

Seriously, what was she thinking?

Why does she take Rohail’s calls?

Rohail is an obsessive lover who can’t take no for an answer, and Meerub is married to someone else. It’s like putting a matchstick next to a pile of gasoline and hoping nothing will catch on fire. I mean, come on, Meerub, have some self-respect and stop leading Rohail on.

I’m a nobody, but even I have enough judgement and control to know which calls not to pick. (P.S. I don’t pick most of the calls, except the ones I am expecting, geddit?) Meerub keeps entertaining Rohail by taking his calls and talking to him. If you don’t pick up his calls, he will know that you aren’t interested. Meerub was one of the strong heroines in the beginning but now she is reduced to just a silly, timid, and annoying heroine. Talk about character growth, in the reverse.

The Truth Comes Out

Murtasim was about to tell the elders about the contract and that Meerub isn’t expecting. However, Meerub spills water on Murtasim to stop him.

Later, they discuss the “contract” outside their room.

Kyu bhai?

They were both headed to their room; they should have discussed it there. Don’t they know Haya is prying on them?

Haya puts her nose into every matter, enters Meerub’s room and brings the contract to Salma Begum.

Drama ensues.

Murtasim To the Rescue

While everyone is taking Meerub’s class, Murtasim comes to the rescue.

As usual!

He takes all blame and gives a serious shut up call to everyone. His monologue was quite touching. Meerub is also touched by his act, but as usual, does nothing.

I have mentioned this before and I say it again-the conflicts in this drama resolve too quickly. In this case, Murtasim comes to Meerub’s rescue while the “adalat” is still in session. Why couldn’t we let it simmer for a while? On the other hand, the makers don’t want to address the ugliest conflict aka Haya. I just don’t agree with this treatment.

Why do Meerub and Murtasim tolerate Haya?

Haya continues with her shennanigans to torture Meerub, and she continues trying to come closer to Murtasim, but they both do nothing, absolutely NOTHING to stop her.

Haya also tried to smother Feena in this episode while Maryam just watched on. Why couldn’t Maryam report this to the super-efficient Bhabhi Begum? There are so many inconsistencies; I can’t wrap my head around them.

Dragging the Story

But let’s be honest, Meerub and Murtasim are not the only one making bad decisions here. The whole drama has no logic anymore. It’s like the writers are just throwing one plot device after the other to stretch the narrative.

Murtasim has already fallen in love with Meerub long time ago, and Meerub also realizes how much she values Murtasim. That should have been the end of the story, right? No… Now, the drama is being dragged with unnecessary and pointless conflicts. Malik Zubair killing Murtasim’s men, Haya doing jadoo-tona and doing everything under the sun to torture Meerub, and then the pregnancy confusion… Then Rohail comes in, leaving Anwar and Waqas both worried.

What’s next? A meteorite hitting the Earth and wiping out all the characters?

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good melodrama as much as the next person, but “Tere Bin” has crossed the line into ridiculousness. It’s like the writers are just throwing everything they can think of at the wall and hoping something will stick. Newsflash, guys – it’s not working.

Overall, this episode of “Tere Bin” left me feeling frustrated and disappointed. I can only hope that the writers will start to inject some logic and coherence back into the narrative before it’s too late. Otherwise, they might as well just rename the show “Random Things Happening to Random People.”

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next time for another review of your favorite dramas!

  1. I’m reviewing so many other dramas, Amdad. I like some, hate some, don’t review them because they are trending. Go back and read the reviews for the first 16 episodes. You’d see how much I loved it. If I don’t like it, I would say so. I watch it because I don’t like quitting the dramas especially after watching so many episodes. Are you part of Tere Bin team?
