A new drama serial ‘Tere Bin’ has been making rounds on social media. Now 4 episodes in, the drama has been trending in the top 3 positions on YouTube, so what makes it that popular?
The drama has a solid cast including the leads Yumna Zaidi and Wahaj Ali along with Bushra Ansari, Sohail Sameer, Sabeena Farooq, Hira Soomro, Fazila Qazi and Farhan Aly Agha.
The story revolves around Meerab (Yumna Zaidi), a fun, social, and outgoing Karachiite who wants to pursue law. She loves her parents and cannot stand any injustice. We also see Murtasim (Wahaj Ali) who is the complete opposite. To him his (his family’s) respect is everything, he has a conservative mindset and has been brought up to take over the family throne.
It doesn’t take long to piece together that both of the leads absolutely dislike one another, while Meerab thinks Murtasim is self-centred and arrogant, he also thinks of her as wild, disrespectful and unbearable. Moving into the episodes, we can also feel a sense of helplessness from Meerab’s parents who want to give her the whole world but are bounded by Murtasim’s family.
Throughout the videos, it is very evident that Meerab despises the family, and considers the home a prison. She thinks women are nothing but prisoners who are forced to obey the men of the household and have no life of their own.
Murtasim’s mother, Begum Khanum (Bushra Ansari) and her brother-in-law do not want Meerab to take law because a cultured girl is not someone who goes to court according to them. While discussing her future, they decide the best way control her is to get her married off.
On Meerab’s birthday, without asking for her consent, Begum Khanum announces that she has selected Meerab for her son. After this announcement, Meerab is in utter shock, and so is Murtasim because everyone knows they cannot tolerate each other. Moreover, he tells his mother that she has to take back her decision because it is his life and she has no right to make this decision for him. Both Meerab and Murtasim tell their families that no matter what happens, they will not tie the knot.
The chemistry between both the actors is sizzling. The hate between the two is what gives the audience the pleasure of watching the show because it is only enhancing the chemistry. While it was obvious that the solution to ‘control’ Meerab would be to marry her, it was also obvious that it would be Murtasim who would be the scapegoat.
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?
