A Relatable "Hairy" Tale

Amar Kaushik and his writer Niren Bhatt have gone about their task with a lot of care, evident from the way they have focused on characterizations, including certain traits developed and made visible.

BALA not only entertains thoroughly but also delivers a very important message that will surely be lapped up by the audiences.

Anuj Rakesh Dhawan's cinematography is neat and captures the small town goings on well. Preetisheel Singh's makeup and prosthetics is flawless. Sheetal Sharma's costumes are straight out of life. Mayur Sharma's production design adds to the authenticity. Hemanti Sarkar's editing is slick and yet unh...(more)

Ayushmann Khurrana's Film Is Laced With Wit And Humour

Bala benefits no end from the quality of the performances as well as from its empathy for the idiosyncrasies of small town folk, but it is the writing that is its Samson's hair: the film's power flows principally from it. The screenplay is indeed King here. Yes, with a capital K.(more)

This Ayushmann Khurrana starrer is equally hilarious and heartfelt

'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.(more)
