BALA is a Hindi language comedy drama in which a vain man thinks his life is ruined when he loses his hair.

Sex

References are made to sex and masturbation. In one sequence, a man sees another man from behind and believes he is masturbating, but he is actually making a different motion with his hands.

Rude humour

A man with thinning hair is recommended different remedies, including the application of dung and bullock semen which are shown being poured onto his scalp.

Language

There is use of the term 'chootiya', as well as 'shit', 'balls', 'ass' and 'screwed'.

Discrimination

Derogatory comments are made about people with darker skin compared to 'fair' complexions. One actress wears make-up to darken her skin colour for her role. However, the film does not condone discriminatory behaviour.
