Here Is The Balam Movie Review
“Balam” is a revenge drama and it’s the first time Hrithik and Sanjay Gupta collaborated on a film. It is also the first time we see Yami and Hrithik together on 70 mm. While the response to this latest Rakesh Roshan production venture has been great, we decided to give you the lowdown on whether you should spend your money and time to watch Hrithik’s latest outing at the theaters.

Rohan Bhatnagar (Hrithik,) a proficient dubbing artiste and Supriya Sharma (Yami,) a talented pianist who despite their handicap have a positive disposition towards life and they get hitched. This much in love visually impaired couple, Rohan and Supriya, light up each other’s lives. But whether it is life or a Bollywood thriller, life is definitely not all song and dance. When a cad, Amit Shellar (Rohit Roy) and his scumy buddy Wasim (Sahidur Rahman) rape Supriya, Rohan’s world is plunged into even more darkness than the one in which he is born. Predictably the rapist Amit is the brother of the local Corporator, Madhavrao Shellar (Ronit Roy), so the corrupt police officers, played efficiently by Narendra Jha and Girish Kulkarni, drag their feet over the investigation. Though you know what’s next, the cat and mouse game still gives you an adrenaline rush.
Hrithik Roshan takes his career’s biggest risk with “Balam.” For somebody who is know for his charming looks and super stardom, it was a great challenge to take up such a role and Hrithik has given out a bravura performance. The reason for the success of “Balam” is surely because of performance and this has helped the movie go up to another level in whole. Hrithik’s and Yami’s chemistry is outstanding the idea to cast these two opposite each other is just fantastic. Yami provides the perfect foil, subtle and super effective.
Sanjay Gupta made sure that the entire focus is on the script and nothing else. The outcome speaks it all. Brothers Ronit and Rohit Roy, shine in their roles and bring in the right baddie sauce to the dish. The dialogues are crisp and Hrithik’s monologue just when the interval sets in will get the theater up on their seats.
Slow first half
“Balam” is undoubtedly Hrithik Roshan‘s career best performance. This will definitely entertain you guys and audiences will go gaga over it. One of the best movies of Hrithik and strongly recommended. Do go watch it out at the theaters for a solid 2 and half hours of entertainment.
