After months of insane hype and series of concerts across cities, Gully Boy ka time finally aagya. Directed by one of the most talented filmmakers in the Bollywood industry – Zoya Akhtar, it’s an underdog story of a rapper from the streets that sheds light on Indian hip-hop scene. It revolves around Murad (played by Ranveer Singh) who dreams of being a famous rapper, but his choice is limited by poverty and social disadvantages.
The film has opened to extremely positive reviews by critics and audience alike. Some people are even stretching to call it the finest film of our generation and career-best performances of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. And to be honest, it’s not really surprising given the amount of talent behind the film. People are flooding the social media with Gully Boy reviews and most of them are positive.
Check out some of the audience reviews here
Goosebumps. Bhot hard literally. It leaves a long lasting impact on you. Ranveer Singh is here to make his own identity and he has left that mark with Gully Boy. You feel the pain, both in his lyrics and his performance. His best so far for me. #GullyBoy

#GullyBoy Review: BAHUT HARD
Gully Boy is a cinematic art and a collective effort of musicians & actors. Ranveer presented his brilliance. If you connect the audience with your character what you need more? Some frams are outstanding and showed us Zoya’s directorial approach. pic.twitter.com/Y2TYiMivsN

Yes #GullyBoy is a film about the rise of a rapper from the streets but it's an even better love story. Safeena and Murad give couple goals. The bathroom and train compartment scenes are beautifully crafted and enacted. Makes complete more sense why it's a #Valentines release.

Take a bow @ZoyaAkhtarOff you are undoubtedly one of the best filmmakers @RanveerOfficial @aliaa08 and the entire cast of #GullyBoy – you’ve set the bar too high. Insane performances. Do yourself a favour and go watch it today.

Glued to your seat, bouncing with every track, gut-wrenching and just pure visual delight! All while watching an incredibly layered set of characters unfold themselves. Leave your inhibitions aside and go see this 💎💎💎

Just watched #GullyBoy and not to exaggerate, but this might be one of the finest cinematic pieces of our generation. I’ll probably take time to gather all my thoughts but till then, what a fab fucking film about a story waiting to be told should suffice.

With extremely high occupancy in metro cities, the movie is also expected to do great at the box office. Ranveer and Alia are sure as hell on their dream run!
