‘Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya’: Seemingly Perfect Tale Of Love – Between Man (Shahid Kapoor) And Robot (Kriti Sanon)


The film industry never ceases to surprise with its constant quest to blend genres and present audiences with fresh narratives. One such delightful concoction has materialized in the form of ‘Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya’ (TBMAUJ), a film that merges the unpredictability of love with the meticulous world of technology, resulting in a cinematic experience that resonates with a score of 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Starring heartthrob Shahid Kapoor opposite the luminescent Kriti Sanon, this science-fiction romance sweeps viewers into a whirlwind of emotions, reflected perfectly by the rhythmic title that albeit long, draws you in with its promise of a convoluted love story. The writers and directors Amit Joshi and Aradhana Sah weave together an intricate story that is as much about the marvel of robotics as it is about the mayhem of love.

Shahid Kapoor plays Aryan Agnihotri, a brilliant robotics engineer whose intellectual dexterity doesn’t quite translate into his love life. He plays into the trope of the lovelorn genius whose life takes a quirky turn when he meets Sifra, a remarkably sophisticated robot portrayed by Kriti Sanon. The very notion of a man falling head over heels for a robot is ludicrous, and yet, TBMAUJ invites us to explore this oddity with a sense of normalcy.

Initially, the film struggles to balance the scientific jargon and the cultural idiosyncrasies of a typical Indian family. However, Shahid Kapoor, reminiscent of his ‘Jab We Met’ and ‘Kabir Singh’ days, manages to shake off the early awkwardness, navigating the narrative through humor and a certain nostalgic charm. His transition from a corporate robot-maker to a love-smitten protagonist is as erratic as it is endearing.

And where Shahid eases us into the story, it’s Kriti Sanon who captivates and mesmerizes in equal measure. As Sifra, her performance is a paradox, brilliantly rigid yet brimming with a need for liberation. Her portrayal raises the bar, highlighting her ability to express a spectrum of emotions without compromising the character’s robotic core.

The film, while buoyed by its leads, doesn’t shy away from the brilliance of its supporting cast. Dharmendra brings an effortless gravitas, while Dimple Kapadia stuns not just with her acting prowess but with her fashion-forward, imposing appearance that commands respect. The likes of Rakesh Bedi, Ashish Verma, and Rajesh Kumar further enrich the film, infusing it with personality and a heartfelt warmth.

‘Dimple Is Not So Simple’ and ‘Watch It For Dharmendra’ are phrases that might hint at the nuances and surprises that the ensemble cast brings to TBMAUJ. The presence of these stalwarts raises a simple story of love amidst science to something that tugs at the heartstrings.

At its core, TBMAUJ tackles the age-old adage that ‘love is blind’. It asks us to embrace the escapism that comes with the intangible soul of love, even when it manifests in the form of a soul-less robot. The juxtaposition of a life-like entity capable of replicating human affection against the backdrop of a dysfunctional, traditional family confronts us with a futuristic dilemma and an ‘evil’ yet amusing proposition: the power to program love.

The film, though drenched in unlikelihood, shares a lesson in the universal language of affection, suggesting that even the most advanced technology cannot eclipse the basic human need for connection and belonging. The emotional complexity presented through comedic elements, familial drama, and a catchy soundtrack encapsulates the film’s essence.

In conclusion, ‘Teri Baatoon Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya’ is not just a nod to science-fiction enthusiasts or romance lovers; it’s a testament to the evolving narrative styles in cinema where love stories are no longer bound by the rules of reality. It invites audiences into an exploration of love in the time of AI, where the heart knows no bounds, and the spirit of love transcends even the most advanced of technologies. Book your tickets now for this oddly moving saga where Shahid and Kriti promise an amalgamation of science, laughter, melodrama, and an unforgettable melody that collectively define this unique journey of the heart.
