No Rating Review: Why Ayushmann Khurrana’s Bala is not just a good comedy
Bala is way more than just a good comedy film. It cracks right jokes at the right time and leaves you in stitches much more than you would expect. Director Amar Kaushik understands the mechanics well – something he displayed earlier in Stree, and Bala takes it a notch higher. The film starring Ayushmann Khurrana as a prematurely balding man is outrageously hilarious and empathetic at the same time. It introduces a quirky subject and builds on it with a single-minded commitment without meandering towards needless subplots. Dealing with a bald pate and having tried some 212 odd hacks in two years that range from wacky to obnoxious, Ayushmann finally decides to wear a wig and goes from being the joke of the town to the talk of the town. Set in Kanpur, the film also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam who shine in their respective parts as a dark-skinned yet confident lawyer and a small town model turned TikTok sensation. What happens when Bala falls in love and his secret is out. Will his happiness fade like his hairline? Watch Bala for all this and more.
