Ajay Bahl`s debut movie is a brave and honest portrayal of a life that goes astray. The virtue of B.A. Pass lies in its courage to chronicle the life of Mukesh (played by Shadab Kamal), a college student & orphan who has two sisters and lives with a relative of his. He is constantly nagged ... ...Read full review
n a voiceover during the film`s opening scene as he stares emptily at his parents` corpses before him Mukesh the protagonist of BA Pass describes their untimely deaths as a betrayal. It`s the first of many to come for this unsuspecting young boy played by Shadab Kamal who`s at the cusp of discovering that its every man for himself in the world outside. Adapted from a short story by Mohan Sikka titled Railway Aunty which appeared in the 2009 anthology Delhi Noir the film traverses the neon-lit streets of Paharganj even poking and probing its way into the city`s posh parts to ultimately lift the veil on the seemingly simple veneer of middle class life in Delhi. ...Read full review

BA Pass directed (and shot) by first-timer Ajay Bahl severs expectations with the cold relentlessness of a fastidious serial killer. ...Read full review
Unbutton unbuckle and unstrap the senses. It`s going to be one erotic escapade - kinky caustic brutal and brave. With ample `O`s and `Ahhs!` Some painfully fake others carnally climaxed. Adapted from Mohan Sikka`s short story `Railway Aunty` it`s about the doom and desperation of an impoverished life and the extremes one can go to redeem themselves of an ignominious existence. ...Read full review
