Bala – A Journey from Baldness to Boldness #230

Bala is a Bollywood movie based on a guy named Bala, who is bald. This is ironic because he got this name because the beautiful hair he had once (Bal means ‘hair’ in hindi). The main characters of the movie are Bala played by Ayushman Khurana, Latika played by Bhumi Pednekar and Pari played by Yami Gautam.

Badhai Ho (2018) , Another un-conventional Bollywood Movie #218

“Badhai Ho” means “Congratulation”. The story is about an Indian middle-class family, where a mother of 2 sons, Priyamvada got pregnant in her early 50’s.
A society that feeds on gossip, the boys who are matured only in age, a mother-in-law who is never impressed- reacted to the situation in the most realistic way. Will the societal pressure, taunt of dear ones and risk of late pregnancy win over motherhood?
