Tarang Cine’s ‘ Bala’ To Hit Theatres On November 1

Bhubaneswar: With the rising popularity of different genres of cinema, Tarang Cine Productions’ film ‘Bala- The Rhythm of Life’, a movie highlighting the plight and demands of a young man who suffers from premature balding, will hit the theatres across Odisha on November 1.

Directed by Amar Pati, the Odia movie will have actors Samir, Ananya and Divya in lead roles. The story of the movie is based on bald men justifying demand to be included in differently-abled category and get benefits accordingly.

Coincidentally, two Bollywood movies ‘Bala’ and ‘Ujda Chaman’ based on the same concept are slated to release on November 7 and November 8 respectively.

However, makers of Ollywood movie Bala have said the story was conceptualised last year in October. The trailer of the film which was released recently has already got censor certificate.

On October 5, 2018, the title was registered at Utkal Cine Chambers Of Commerce. Due to the demise of well-known actor Salil Mitra and other reasons, release of the film has been delayed.

“The movie was conceptualised almost a year back and it narrates the story of a bald man who demands specials rights,” said Ranjan Satpathy, Creative Head of Tarang Cine Productions.

Commenting on the release of movies with similar concept, film experts have said that it is not a new thing and only copyrights might become an issue.

“As long as there are no claims of copyrights, there is no issue if two movies based on the same concept are released in the same period,” said a film expert Surya Deo.

As per reports, the producer of ‘Ujda Chaman’, Kumar Mangat Pathak has filed a case in the Bombay High Court against the makers of Ayushmann-starrer film ‘Bala’.

Last week, ‘Ujda Chaman’ director Abhishek Pathak had shared his concerns about the similarity in the plot of his film with the Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer, which incidentally releases in the same week. Although disappointed, he is not fretting over the situation, and he claims ‘Bala’ makers are more worried and concerned than him.
