Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, the poster boy of all taboo subjects is back with another interesting story. His film, Bala has released and it won't be wrong to say that it will surely make its way to the coveted Rs 100 crore club. The film deals with another manly problem, premature baldness. Well, Ayushmann's name is enough to watch a film but let's see what's good and bad in it.


Balmukund  (Ayushmann) was a popular kid in the school as people used to praise his lehrate baal. Things change when he starts losing his hair as he grows up. Due to his balding head, his girlfriend leaves him and he also gets demoted in his marketing job. He tries every nuskha in the hope of getting his hair back but nothing works. In the end, he sticks a hair patch on his head.

Latika (Bhumi Pednekar) is Ayushmann's childhood friend who has been tormented by people because of her dark complexion. Pari (Yami Gautam) is a Tick-Tok star who is also the face of a fairness brand that Bala markets. Pari and Bala fall in love but the lady doesn't know about the reality of his hair. The story moves forward with a lot of twists, turns and jokes.

Talking about the performances, if we are talking about good things, it is impossible not to take Ayushmann's name. He is the best. With back-to-back spectacular performances, he has made us feel that he is a gift that keeps on giving. Words fall short to explain his performance. Yami looks convincing and gives an impactful performance. Bhumi is undoubtedly a good actor. She showcases the insecure part of human nature and the feeling that every girl who is not fair according to societal standards face.

Bala has an amazing supporting cast. Saurabh Shukla is funny, Abhishek Banerjee is brilliant and Seema Pahwa is indeed a scene-stealer.

The strength of Bala lies in its writing. Niren Bhatt has written a very good story without compromising with the laughter. It is the magic of his dialogues that there are no dull moments in the film.

Bala has some flaws. As Bhumi has played the dark-skinned woman, her complexion doesn't look consistent. The film has a message but it kind of looks preachy.  However, these reasons are not enough to give this film a miss.

Don't miss, go watch it with your friends and then watch it every time you see it on TV.
