Bala opened to largely positive reviews from film critics. In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 3 stars out of 5 and he wrote: "Ayushmann Khurrana surrenders himself completely to the demands of the role, conveying the ups and downs, actually mostly downs."
Other than Ayushmann Khurrana, Bala also features Bhumi Pednekar, Yami Gautam and Saurabh Shukla. Directed by Amar Kaushik, the film showcases the story of a man, who suffers from premature balding.
