Rating: 6.5/10


(Spoilers Ahead!) Aryan (Shahid Kapoor) is a robotics engineer who takes after his aunt, Urmila (Dimple Kapadia), working for her company, Robotex. His aunt invites him to the USA, where he meets SIFRA (Super Intelligent Female Robot Automation), who looks and acts like a human, a fact unknown to him. Aryan falls in love with Sifra (Kriti Sanon) but later learns she's a robot and a ploy used by his aunt to test if humans can tell SIFRA apart from themselves. Heartbroken, he returns to India and agrees to an arranged marriage. However, when he realizes his love for Sifra, he decides to sneak out of the engagement ceremony and is caught by his grandfather (Dharmendra) who suggests he follow his heart and assures him that he'll handle the family situation in his absence.

Aryan wishes Sifra could be in India so he could introduce her to his family, so he calls his aunt to ask her to send Sifra to India for further 'testing' against a traditional Indian family. She agrees to the 'testing' and sends her to India, and he introduces her as his girlfriend to his family, leading to numerous comical situations.

Aryan's family, unaware she is a robot, agrees to their marriage. Before their wedding, Sifra installs a faulty update ridden with a virus that corrupts her memory and causes her to forget everything. Aryan calls his aunt to ask for help, and she sends him a memory backup which Aryan installs, causing Sifra to recover her memory. Aryan's aunt Urmila, who was unaware of Aryan's intentions of marrying Sifra is against him after knowing the truth and orders Aryan to return Sifra as she is Urmila's company property. Aryan manages to convince his aunt, and after an emotional conversation, she agrees to let him keep Sifra.

On their wedding day, a blackout occurs while Sifra is charging herself, which causes Sifra to malfunction. Sifra's speech becomes distorted, and her movements begin to glitch while she performs orders given to her previously that were taken back, one of them being 'setting Delhi on fire'. Looking at the destruction caused by Sifra, A heartbroken Aryan is left with no choice but to stop her, ultimately stops her by hitting her face with a sword slashing her face, which reveals the inner workings of a robot, and he realizes that even though Sifra looks human, she can never truly be one.

The film ends with Aryan's aunt launching a series of robots including Sifra 2.0. This new Sifra has her memory and settings formatted and Aryan is no longer her admin. Jiah (Janhvi Kapoor) a new intern, approaches Aryan at the end and asks him for advice on how to find true love. Looking at Aryan and Jiah bonding, Sifra starts to feel jealous and Aryan notices her emotions.

Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya disappoints with its attempt at an out-of-the-box romantic comedy. The film follows Aryan (Shahid Kapoor), a robotics engineer who unwittingly falls in love with Sifra (Kriti Sanon), a robot designed by his aunt. The storyline, however, lacks coherence, with a weak script and inconsistent pacing. While the film aims to explore human-robot coexistence, it goes beyond the boundaries of sanity, leaving the audience questioning the plot.

The first half is unengaging, with unrealistic events unfolding, and the love story between Aryan and Sifra lacks believability. The second half introduces some light humor as Aryan brings Sifra home, but the jokes often fall flat. Despite the film's shortcomings, Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon's performances make it somewhat watchable. Shahid brings humor to his character, relying on his star power, while Kriti impresses with her portrayal of a robot.

The supporting cast, including Dharmendra and others, attempts to elevate the film, but the clichéd character arcs and a poor storyline limit their impact. The film struggles to engage the audience and relies heavily on its good-looking lead pair. The highlight of the movie is the song and dance sequences, which provide some enjoyment amid the lackluster narrative.

Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya falls short of expectations, offering a bland and uninspiring cinematic experience. It fails to deliver a sensible and realistic love story, leaving viewers wanting more substance and coherence in the plot.
