Tere Bin | Episode 28


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 28 Written Update and Review

This episode review is going to be a rant. So, the naysayers back off right now.

Meerub count #1: the way she treats her parents

So, Meerub and Murtasim come to Karachi at Waqas’s house. Aneela and Waqas welcome the duo with open arms, especially Meerub.

What does Meerub do in response?

She walks like a zombie and goes to her room. She recalls her mornings when she lives there. Later, she asks Aneela why her pictures are missing from the room. Aneela has a legit justification-because seeing the pictures was driving Waqas crazy.

How does Meerub respond do that?

She walks out, leaving Aneela emotional and weeping.

Forget about being their foster child, at least for humanity’s sake, she could have consoled Aneela.

And what exactly is she upset about? That they raised her with all the luxuries?

Later, in one scene, she tells Waqas:

“Aap ko mujh se sawal karne ka koi haq nahin hai.”

If she had to talk trash to them why did she come to Karachi? She’s living in their house, courtesy bhi koi chiz hoti hai.

Meerub is behaving as if the world has ended on her because her parents weren’t her parents, and that she was forced to marry a gem like Murtasim. I mean, seriously girl. Shit happens with people and they still get up every day, go to work, and write blogs. You’re so priviledged. Can’t you see that?

Meerub count #2: what happens with Rohail…

Why she goes with Rohail? Why does she entertain his creepy behaviour? Why did she listen to his izhar e mohabbat so calmly? Why didn’t she walk out?


Meerub count #3: how she dealt with Murtasim

Murtasim meets Sadaf, and magically knows where to go and look for Meerub. slo-mo walk, dialogues in deep throaty voice  and a few punches, Murtasim takes Meerub home.

Murtasim comes home and simply admits that they were with Sadaf. Even though Murtasim has lied, Waqas just knows that Murtasim has seen Meerub with Rohail.

Murtasim is upset with Meerub and rightly so. He isn’t raising a question on Meerub’s character but is he wrong to be hurt? Meerub should have stayed away from Rohail, and I have already rambled on about that, so not going to repeat that. But look at her face.

She’s either planning for a revenge or feeling guilty. Let’s hope it’s the latter.

Murtasim sulks alone, smokes and eyes his gun while Waqas talks to Meerub trying o explain the wrong she had done. Wahaj has outdone his earlier performances in this one shot. Loved it.

Oh, by the way, there is one thing I have been meaning to say ever since that night I watched 17 episodes of Tere Bin in one night…

Wahaj Ali tries to mimic Faisal Quraishi in his body language and especially his voice. I don’t mean that as a bad thing. I think when Wahaj worked with Faisal on Fitoor, he has picked up a few things from the legend. And now Wahaj is on the way of becoming one. I think this drama has given Wahaj his due. He has always been effortlessly charming but Murtasim has been Wahaj’s biggest hit and his best performance. This paragraph is my humble opinion. Rambling over.

The episode ends as Meerub and Waqas and we all hear a gunshot. Relax… Nobody ain’t dying. But it sure adds some drama, right?

This isn’t the whole rant, just the headlines. I will add more when my fingers have energy to type more. It isn’t being a software developer and a blogger and a writer at once. All I do is type, talk and eat.

That’s the episode. I guess I’m done for the day. How you peeps doing?
