Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya Review: Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon’s Romantic Comedy Disappoints, Lacks Spark

Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya Review

“Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya” fails to live up to the standards set by other futuristic films and shows, leaving viewers disappointed with its lackluster execution. Unlike memorable characters such as Rajinikanth’s Chitti from “Robot” or the endearing female robot from TV series like “Small Wonder” and “Karishma Ka Karishma,” the portrayal of Sifra, a heavily programmed robot lacking common sense, falls short of evoking any genuine emotions.

The film’s first half unfolds as a tedious snoozefest, with nonsensical events dominating the screen. The improbable romance between Aryan and Sifra, culminating in intimate moments without Aryan realizing Sifra’s true identity, strains credibility. Only in the second half, when Aryan brings Sifra home, does the film offer some light humor, transitioning into a family-oriented sci-fi tale. However, many jokes fall flat, failing to elicit genuine laughter.

After enduring 2 hours and 23 minutes, viewers are left questioning the film’s premise. Is it a comedy? Where are the jokes? Is it a romance? Where’s the passion? Is it a sci-fi movie for kids? Where’s the science? The bland dialogues further dampen the viewing experience, leaving one wondering if the writers themselves were uninspired.

The saving grace comes in the final 20 minutes and an intense climax, offering some clarity amidst the confusion. A cameo appearance provides a much-needed breather before the end credits roll. Despite its shortcomings, Shahid and Kriti’s on-screen presence offers some respite. Shahid delivers goofy humor with his signature charm, though some one-liners lack punch. Kriti’s portrayal of Sifra showcases fine attention to detail in her mannerisms, yet the weak storyline constrains her performance.

The ensemble cast, including Dharmendra, Rakesh Bedi, Anubha Fatehpuria, Rajesh Kumar, Grusha Kapoor, Brijbhushan Shukla, Raashul Tandon, and Ashish Verma, attempts to elevate the material but is hindered by cliched character arcs and a lack of depth.

Overall, “Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya” struggles to engage viewers and relies heavily on its attractive leads. The occasional song and dance sequences provide brief moments of enjoyment, but they’re not enough to salvage this lackluster affair.
