2019 can be said to be the year when Bollywood got obsessed with the concept of premature balding.
Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘Bala’ and Sunny Singh’s ‘Ujada Chaman’ will soon hit the theatres; both the films are based on the same concept – premature balding.
Every now and then Bollywood gets obsessed with a particular theme and then you see a lot of making trying to make films on that theme. The success of URI, the surgical strike prompted producers to register titles which were around India-Pakistan confrontation.
It seems 2019 is the year when Bollywood got fascinated by premature balding.
But what is surprising is that there are striking similarities in several scenes and dialogues in the two films – ‘Bala’ and ‘Ujada Chaman’.
It seems producers are pretty excited about the idea, and that explains the rush to make films on the topic. The fact that hardly any movie has been made on this topic in the past, may have also helped them provide the green light to the films.
Did you know?
In Marathi language, the word ‘taklya’ means someone who is bald. There is a similar sounding word in Urdu language as well, which is ‘Takhliya’. Takhliya in Urdu means ‘Tanhai’ (to be left alone). When a King orders for Takhliya, it means he wants only the key people to stay around and the rest all should vacate the place.
Not long ago, a movie titled ‘Gone Kesh’ released in the theatres, but apparently, it sank without any trace.
Let’s hope these two movies are able to capture the attention of the audience.
