Bala Critic Reviews & Ratings

Just like the film’s message, 'Bala' is beautiful even with its flaws, and never fails to entertain.

  • CNN News 18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-3.5/5
Never understating the troubling blackface of Bhumi’s character, the truth is that the film is consistently enjoyable.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3/5
It is a breezy drama on a prickly theme that sustains its sense of proportion and its control over a challenging narrative arc.

Ayushmann Khurrana’s Bala is an achievement. He’s perfected the art of playing people who are not instantly likeable.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-2.5/5
Bala extends its leading man’s predicament in more interesting ways, and is an altogether more humorous and layered examination of a widespread problem than Ujda Chaman.

There is enough to enjoy here and yet the film doesn’t land as it is simplistic and on-the-nose.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-3.5/5
Kaushik's film doles out nimble humour, shuddh desi zingers, refreshing flippancy and a lively blend of small-town quirk and orthodoxy.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-3.5/5
It's almost as if the film has been designed to clear every headspace and leg/elbow room for the leading man Ayushmann to spread his wings and fly.

Overall, 'Bala' is one crowd pleasing, feel good movie that starts off with a laugh, and ends on a heartwarming note.

Amar Kaushik’s Bala is a rib-tickling exploration of the dip in self-confidence and self-worth triggered when hair begins to divorce the scalp.

  • News 18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-3/5
Bala could have been a crackerjack of a film but allows the novelty of its premise to wear out too easily.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-3.5/5
‘Bala’ is a sweet-natured film that celebrates self-acceptance and loving oneself with warts and moles.

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

Overall Average Rating - 3.37/5
