Hindi Movie plots nowadays pick up topical issues which were considered taboo earlier .This movie speaks about one aspect of the phenomenon of body shaming, that is male pattern baldness . A little  bit of trivia related to this film is that 3 films including this one were made simultaneously with the same plot and hence the other two couldn't do well. Many young people will be able to identify themselves with the embarrassment faced by Ayushmann in the film as he starts getting bald as a young man after a perfectly happy childhood and teenage years.The rejection he faces in social life and the workplace because of being bald has been brought out by the director very effectively. Ayushmann has proved to be a pioneer in the portrayal of persons of some type of social disability. Not just satisfied with tackling the issue of male pattern baldness, the director also deals with the issue of dark skin of the female character ( Bhumi Pednekar). Incidentally a jarring aspect is Bhumi's makeup  as a dark person as it appears artificial.
A fairly well made film which makes a point through entertainment that one needs to be happy and satisfied with one's body as it is. Direction by Amar Kaushik is impressive as he goes about showing the trauma faced by the hero and the difficulties faced by him in getting accepted by society with this so called disability. The actors Ayushmann,  Bhumi and Yami  have performed well.
