Every person who lost his hair at a young age and became a victim of baldness can relate to this movie. Ayushman movie not only gives a strong message but also tickles the funny bone. The movie depicts how a young man loses confidence with every falling hair. Not only Ayushman but all the characters in the film have performed their roles really well. People have always said that there is only one heart, how many times Ayushmann Khurana will win. Something similar was seen this time too. The concept of the movie is similar to the previous week release ‘Ujda Chaman’ featuring Sunny Singh in the lead role.
The story revolves around Balmukund Shukla means ‘Bala’. In childhood, he was known for his long hair and tremendous attitude. Not only this, Kanpur’s Sachin Chaudhary was famous for his hair style among the girls at school. From teachers to friends, he does not take any time to make fun of them, but the wheel of time turned so much that he was forced to become jokes themselves. The film starts in the native language of Kanpur and Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. At the age of 25, Bala (Ayushmann Khurrana) started to fall hair and then watt. Yes, because of hair fall all the time, more than 200 prescriptions were adopted, but still no solution was found. Finally, he had to resort to fake hair. Latika Trivedi (Bhumi Pednekar), who used to listen to the taunt of people since childhood due to black color, used to tease her classmate Bala in between. Then comes Pari Mishra in life, who is really a fairy for Bala’s life and then the real fun of the film begins. At the beginning of the film, you will start getting involved in back-to-back Kanpuria chatter and rhetoric.
Bala means Ayushman Khuranna will not allow you to let your eyes go anywhere else. The actresses of the film Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam fit in their character perfectly. Bhoomi added four moons to her dark skin look. At the same time, acting of Bala’s father played by Saurabh Shukla, Latika’s mother played by Seema Pahwa and Bala’s brother played by Dheerendra Kumar Gautam’s acting will win your heart. From the first scene to the last scene, the movie entertains in every bit.
Verdict: The movie is a true entertainer. The audience is loving this movie. The superb character of Bala played by Ayushmann Khuranna makes this movie a must-watch.
