Hair or No Hair - Life is beautiful..!! 👍
7 November 2019 | by Tejas_Vinda_AITSSee all my reviews

A feel-good comedy that tackles premature hair loss.

Ayushmann as a bald man, who struggles to get a girl due to the defect. Every girl he tries to impress rejects him as soon as they see his head. He also faces a lot of embarrassment and humiliation on a daily basis.

Finally, his father gifts him a wig, following which he is able to impress a very pretty girl, played by Yami Gautam. However, he soon realises that wig cannot be a permanent solution, and hence, the drama continues.

Bala is a feel-good, highly entertaining movie that will definitely make you laugh out loud.

Though the message of self-acceptance and being comfortable in your own skin is something that dosnt come through convincingly.

But one thing is guaranteed - you will walk out of the theatre with a smile on your face.
