    '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.
