Shaam, Meera Jasmine, Karnas
Goldmine pictures` Bala is another action packed love story, directed by Deepak. Shaam makes his debut as an action hero, after doing soft romantic roes in Yeh Nee Romba Azhaga Irukkey and 12B. He is all excited about the film where he plays a ?dada? character.
Bala (Shaam) is a local ?dada? with a heart of gold and Meera Jasmine, the Run girl is the heroine. She says that the character she plays in the film will be in total contrast to what she did in Run. She comes into the life of Bala, the hardcore criminal and that changes life for the angry young man. He decides to leave his dangerous life and how he faces the hurdles in his personal and love life is the basis of the film. This is told with all the box office formula along with a neat screenplay. The film has love, sentiments and family drama but action will be the highlight of the film. The film is produced by Raju Mahalingam.
The cast also include Raghuvaran, Thilagan, Nagesh, Rajan.P.Dev and Karunas. Editing is by V.T.Vijayan and camera is by Priyan. Music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja and Brinda is the choreographer. Story, screenplay and dialogues are by the director himself.
Abhishek Bachchan's film is a tedious watch
Nizhal-This one is a fine one-time watch.
Nayattu- There are some relevant social messages and genuine statements
Pawan Kalyan and Prakash Raj's face-off is a treat to watch.
