Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon’s science fiction romantic comedy film Teri Baton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya has entered the Valentine’s week. This is a love story of a human and a robot. This seemingly impossible love story had full potential to become a unique love story, but the director duo of Amit Joshi, Aradhana Shah and the writing duo have only satisfied the subject. Even after almost a decade and a half after the release of Rajinikanth’s film Robot, in this film also the aspect of malfunction in the machine’s software has been made the basis of the climax of the story. What results can unrealistic expectations from a machine produce? This film also brings out the same thing, but in this predictable story, weak screenplay, poor climax and average dialogues have not been able to convey this effectively.
The story of love between a human and a robot is a heart-breaking one.
The story of the film is of Aryan (Shahid Kapoor). He is an aspiring robotic engineer. He is so focused on his work that he even dreams of marrying a robot. It’s not that he doesn’t want to get married, but his wishlist for his wife is very long. Meanwhile, his aunt (Dimple Kapadia) calls him to America to show him her robotic world. In America he meets Sifra (Kriti Sanon). Sifra is perfect, he is not only impressed by her but also falls in love with her, but soon Aryan is exposed to the truth that Sifra is a robot and he is heartbroken and in ‘Kabir Singh’ mode. Turns on. He is trying unsuccessfully to forget Sifra and the family is constantly pressurizing him to marry her. Ultimately, Aryan decides that he will marry Sifra only and will hide her robot identity and present her to the family as his girlfriend. What happens to this love story of human and robot? This is the whole story after the interval.
Advantages and disadvantages of the film
Amit Joshi and Aradhana Sah have made their debut as directors with this film. The story of the film is also his. The concept of a unique love story between a human and a robot makes this story interesting, but its treatment is not interesting. A lot of cinematic liberty has been taken in the film. Aryan lives among the machines, hence Sifra is a machine. How could he not understand? The intimate scenes between the two raise questions but in the name of cinematic liberty you want to ignore them and this ignoring happens in the further story. The television show Hamari Bahu after the film interval also reminds me of Rajinikanth in some way or the other. The second half seems forced, the way the climax has been added to the film. It seems more imposed. In the first half of the film, there is more focus on romance and comedy, due to which it entertains. However, after a while you feel that all the jokes of Shahid’s character revolve around his friend’s wife. The cinematography of the film has also remained average. It has more the touch of a television drama show than a science fiction film. The songs and music of the film have become good. Shahid’s dancing moves make him more special.
Kriti and Shahid’s acting is the USP of the film
Talking about the acting aspect, it is the only USP of this film. Shahid Kapoor has lived all the aspects of his character – love, anger and irritation – very well. Actress Kriti impresses with her performance as Sifra. While acting as a robot, he has kept zero expression on his face, which must not have been easy. Kriti has beautifully embodied the role of the on-screen robot. His performance goes a level higher during the climax scene. The chemistry between her and Shahid also makes the film special. Anubha, Rajesh and Rakesh Bedi are settled in their respective roles. Dharmendra and Dimple Kapadia had nothing to do in the film. They should avoid such films.
