Tere Bin | Episode 47


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 47 Written Update and Review

Assalam Alaikum dear readers,

Shabana Mukhtar here, to recap and review the latest episode of Tere Bin.

Let’s first tackle the side-characters before moving to the main ones.

Maryam and Naurez

The rukhsati takes place amidst melodrama. Maryam doesn’t want to leave without seeing Meerub, while Salma Begum is now worried for her daughter’s marital life.

Maryam tells Naurez everything-that she likes someone else, that Malik Zubair used her to avenge Murtasim, and that their wedidng was rushed for a reason. Naurez listens to everything, recalling Haya’s lies one after the other. Strangely, he doesn’t react much. I think he will forgive Maryam (because she was honest, and she’s his wife and all) but he won’t let go of Haya for her white lies.

He shouldn’t. Someone show Haya her real place, ya?


Haya has no limits of behayai. She lurks around Murtasim’s room and tries to evesdrop (pure cringe). She is thrilled to learn that Meerub is gone.

And yet, she doesn’t seem happy when she realizes .

Haya: Main jeet gayi.

Sabeen, meri behen, you deserve better roles. You shouldn’t be doing such roles. Zoya in Kashf, Faria in Dil Awaiz, and now Haya in Tere Bin; she is reliving the same character, but this time the evil has crossed all limits. It’s enough already. Please, do some romantic comedy now. What say?

After “fade-to-black”

Ek toofan ke pehle ki khamoshi hoti hai, ek toofan ke baad ki.

  • Shabana Mukhtar

The scene in Murtasim’s bedroom opens with the latter-the silence after the storm.

Murtasim is sitting on the bed like a defeated soldier, breathing heavilywith Meerub’s dupatta near him. His kurta’s buttons are undone, and his clothes are wrinked. On the other hand, Meerub is sitting on the floor, resting against the bed. Her makeup is appropriately smudged. Murtasim gets up and slowly walks out of the room.

This is enough to tell us what has transpired.


Murtasim is in front of a mirror. He looks at his reflection in the mirror. We see the flashbacks when the duo had signed the contract, when Murtasim had prophecied that Meerub would tear away the contract, their tall promises to each other. He has broken all those promises. Angrily, he punches his reflection, getting bruised and bleeding profusely. As he slumps down dejectedly, he repeats:

Kaash ki yeh sab aise na hua hota. Kaash! Kaaash! Kaaaash!

But that’s just Murtasim being nice on his part. It wasn’t ALL his fault. It wasn’t marital rape as many people had assumed. As he recounts the events, he also says:

Murtasim: Woh khud ko nahin rok payi, tum khud ko rok sakte thhe Murtasim Khan!


Meerub Keeps Her Promise, Yet Again

On the other hand, Meerub is sitting alone, cursing herself for losing her control. She also recalls the terms and conditions should such a “thing” happen between them.

Meerub: “Apni qismat ka faisla khud kar lo, khud kar lo apni qismat ka faisla”

This line reminded me of one of my favourite songs-Mere dil ki dil se tauba, dil se tauba mere dil ki… Remember that?

So it was Meerub who “lost her control?” How was it possible? How could she lose her control while she was so disgusted with Murtasim-spitting on him, reminding him of his auqat and whatnot.

Something doesn’t add up.

Meerub keeps thinking about their contract, especially her vow to go if such a “thing” ever happens. She had promised to walk out of Murtasim’s life.

And she does.

The episode ends as Meerub is dragging herself on the nearly deserted streets.

All this while, I kept waiting for the scene that was shown in the promo. Something doesn’t feel right. In the promos for episode 47, we saw that Haya was talking to Meerub, advising her to run away from Murtasim. Where did that scene go? It is only ARY team which shoots the promos/teasers separately, not Geo (watch Fraud’s teaser and the drama, Aik Sitam Aur). Something has been edited, for sure.



First of all, there were some people who were scared and disappointed that Murtasim did what he did even though he promised Meerub to never touch her without her consent (that would be me). And then, there were some who thought that the last scene was just a clickbait, that we are lured into watching the next episode by hinting at marital rape. I am so thrilled, weirdly, that we were all proven wrong, even if it was done in last minute editing (that’s just my hunch).

We were told that it was consensual, sorta. While it was remote from possibility, I kinda only imagine how this scene would have gone if it was not a Pakistani drama. Anger, passion, vulnerability, all thrown into the mix as the married couple breaks the promise to stay away from each other.

The writer has done a fine job catching us off-guard by twisting the story around, even if it isn’t easy to digest. At the same time, the direction of this episode was at its finest. Every moment, every expression was captured so perfectly.

  1. Murtasim’s regret and slow breathing as he sits on his bed
  2. His monologue
  3. Haya’s confusion even after winning
  4. Meerub’s stubbornness to fulfil her promise even though it was against her heart’s desires

Tere Bin is back on my fav list 😀

  1. yeah, but they changed it, for US. Even if it doesn’t add up, which I mentioned in my review, they tried to twist things around to tell a better narrative. I like it.

  2. liza says:

    uh my dear… it WAS supposed to be on marital rape. it was a last minute script change because of the audience backlash. you think the whole bedroom aftermath seemed like they had consensual sex? NO… unless it was some sort of passionate rough sex but i doubt it was that… meerub isn’t like that. and the voiceovers sound so much like like a whatsapp recording lol. Also the last convo during their said nikkah contract was all fake. it was an added dialogue. these makers think that we are fools.
