In NDTV’s review, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya 1.5 out of 5 stars and said, “TBMAUJ starts silly. With every passing scene, it becomes sillier and sillier until it scrapes the bottom of the barrel. A besotted but confused Aryan is unable to get Sifra out of his head. He convinces his aunt to ship the robot to Mumbai, where he works. He takes the girl home and passes her off as an orphan.”
He continued: “A robot let loose in a conservative Delhi household is supposed to lead to funny situations. But the film remains steadfastly unfunny. The gags fall flat. The performers have to push themselves to squeeze something out of the sloppy script. But theirs is a losing battle.”
Released on February 9, Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya has been jointly backed by Maddock Films and Jio Studios.
