'Bala' is one crowd pleasing, feel good movie that starts off with a laugh, and ends on a heartwarming note. It is sometimes crude, sometimes predictable, but the film has a likable cast and delivers some poignant messages about self-love, acceptance, companionship and of course, bald is beautiful.

'Bala' remains a light-hearted comedy with situations that are relatable. Just like the film’s message, 'Bala' is beautiful even with its flaws, and never fails to entertain.

    'Bala' is a comical film which unabashedly faces lookism, eye-to-eye: its small town comedy tropes are seamlessly driven, and not once do you feel bored by the narrative. The writing of the film is surprisingly coherent, and the performances by Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar and Seema Pahwa were my favourites. The film takes a roll on a good-looking TikTok star, a dark-skinned girl who wants to be fair, and the lead- Bala, the bald, played boldly by Ayushmann Khurrana. You should watch 'Bala' if you, just like me, suffered 'Ujda Chaman': this is a masterclass on how to make an entertaining, comical film a message one without being sermonizing in tone.
