Aryan Agnihotri, a skilled robotics engineer portrayed by Shahid Kapoor, embarks on a journey to the United States to contribute to a new project assigned by his aunt and boss, Urmila (Dimple Kapadia). During his stay, he finds solace in the care provided by Sifra (Kriti Sanon), the robot designed to captivate his heart. Unexpectedly, Aryan falls deeply in love with Sifra. Yet, his world shatters when he uncovers the truth behind her existence, feeling betrayed as a mere subject of a laboratory experiment. Despite his anger, an inexplicable connection persists, leading him to persuade his aunt to bring Sifra to India for marriage. The rest of the story is about the problems Aryans face because of Sifra.


Shahid skillfully carried the entire film, impressing the audience with his witty one-liners and leaving a lasting impact in the emotional scenes. On the other hand, Kriti Sanon portrayed the character of a robot perfectly; her walking, talking, and overall body language were good. She exuded absolute beauty in every frame and could have delivered an even better performance if her character had been written more effectively. The other actors, including Dharmendra, Rakesh Bedi, Anubha Fatehpuria, Rajesh Kumar, Grusha Kapoor, Brijbhushan Shukla, Raashul Tandon, and Ashish Verm, were okay.

What worked for the film:

The movie's basic idea is exciting, and it also manages to evoke numerous laughs, primarily due to the characters' responses. The comedy lies not so much in the conversations but in how they are delivered and timed, particularly Aryan's interactions with his friend and coworker, Monty (Ashish Verma), who executes his silly behavior exceptionally. The second half's initial and climatic portions and suitable music work well.

What did not work for the film:

Despite its unique storyline, the film becomes frequently repetitive as it attempts to develop the plot. The film also explores the ongoing debate between humans and machines, emphasizing the responsible use of AI and robots. However, this aspect feels hurried and concludes abruptly, including the love track's initial portion. Also, the situations in which Sifra's character gets entangled look convenient. It is said that Sifra has ample access to many things, but in some scenes, her behavior is quite illogical as it lacks common sense. The director duo could have used the character of Urmila much better as bringing her could have brought more excitement, given her importance in the creation of Sifra. 

Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya Movie Review and Verdict:

Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya works only in parts. The fantastic lead pair of Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon, Music, a few comical moments, and emotional scenes work well for the film. Still, besides that, it appears to be a shallow take with an exciting storyline.
