He suffers from great complex due to his hairs and does all he can to grow his hairs back from applying buffalo dung on his head to trying all possible asanas that help in hair regrowth but, all in vain. he loses his girlfriend and suffers demotion due to his loss of hair.
While Bala craves to get a girl for marriage, he sees a beautiful girl (Yami Gautam) in a TikTok video and falls for her. His father gifts him with a wig and he meets Yami wearing that wig. He succeeds in winning Yami and they marry each other. However, his real struggle begins when he tries to hide his baldness from his wife. Even after marriage, he tries to regrow his hair but all in vain.
The story of Bala is a complete comedy right with perfect comic instances and actions. Though Bala points on quite a serious matter, it makes no compromise on the part of comedy while presenting the idea.
Ayushman Khurana has always been known for his choice of role. He has always chosen unique concepts and been perfect in executing them. Bala is no exception to this. Nowhere in the film, he appears anything but natural. His comic, monments and timings have always been perfect.
Besides Ayushamn, the film stars Yami Gautam and Bhumi Pednekar. Both these actresses are excellent in their respective works and they appear to fit their roles well. Yami completely suits the role of a small-town girl who is a TikTok star. She is all-natural.
However, Bhumi is good on her part but the drawback is that they have transformed a fair-skinned girl into a dark-skinned one. They could have better cast an actress who has the complexion that suits the role.
The acting skills of the leading cast are excellent without a doubt and also the supporting cast of the film commendable. They have all played their roles well and they very well complement the leading cast.
The director of Bala is Amar Kaushik who had directed Stree. His work is definitely worth praise and also, the writers of the film have a great role in making such an entertaining film.
The makeup artist who has created Ayushman’s prosthetic loo has done his job really well and Ayushman looks really cute in his bald look. Even Yami Gautam looks really beautiful and watching her on the big screen is going to be a treat to the eyes.
Altogether, Bala is a complete entertainment package and Ayushman has again proved that he can be considered the synonym of entertainment.
So this weekend, if you wish to get some heartful laugh, go and watch Bala.
