Gully Boy Review


  • Gully Boy is bohot hard (very hard) . You will easily get it once you have watched the movie .
  • Major victorious point is that even with a ordinary story makers are easily able to woo the audience . 
  • There is rarely a movie which seems perfect in all aspects . I repeat every . 
  • I read somewhere "Ranveer raps , Alia Roars" , very true  .
  • Music feels like fresh air .

Star Performances

Ranveer Singh

Truly a bravura performance by Ranveer Singh . This guy amazes me with his every new film. I am in awe specifically because the guy I met him in his body a few weeks ago ,  'Sangram Bhakerao' is poles apart from 'Murad' in Gully Boy .
The movie shows Murad's long struggle in life from his struggle and travaile to his success and supernova. And Ranveer makes sure that he chooses not to perform Murad's character rather to live it fully drenched. 
Will come to his rap in the music section !!

Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt is an overall virtuoso .  How is she so so so efficient in every role. 
What transformation. Aila ... Bole to Alia ne Kya Accent pakdela hai . 
What makes you admire her talent even more is that Safeena , her character is nowhere near her real life . Still , I dare you to find one flaw !!

Vijay Raaz

Vijay Raaz finally gets a role that can somewhat help prove the class this man carries with him . And he lives upto it . Infact more of it . The sequences showing Ranveer and Vijay Raaz's counter are real joy to watch .  

Siddhant Chaturvedi

And straight away the award for the best debut of the year 2019 goes to CHATURVEDI . Keep a note of this .

Kalki Koechlin

Kalki Koechlin even though in a small role , leaves an impact on the mind of the audiences

Music is the essence of Gully Boy . My favorite is Doori . Do mention your's in the comments  .
Raps are absolutely apt . None of it feels forced. And what a decision by makers to make Ranveer Singh Bhagnani 'rap'.  Not only it made the film feel more realistic but also Ranveer was so good at that . What a Performer  .
Divine's music is heavenly , feels like a shot of fresh air in this era of REMAKES .

Script & Screenplay 

Being written by those two women , who understand the characters more than anyone alse in the industry , it had to top notch . And honestly , it has even crossed that level . Burden over the screeplay writers increase even more when the main theme of the movie is not so unique . But here , they handled the pressure in the best way possible .   


Honestly , I considered Zoya Akhtar as a director for the elite class and anyone else would have thought the same because of her choices of films ( ZNMD , DIL DHADAKNE DO , LUCK BY CHANCE ) . But now only one point keeps pondering my thought which I heard from Zoya' mouth in an interview that "I know the Gullys more than anyone else and you got to believe me" . And she makes you believe with her work. What a direction ! There is nothing special in the story . Ordinary rags to riches thing but Zoya with her skills made that simple thing look gorgeous. She totally engrosses into the Gully's .

My Opinion

Gully Boy is a movie which does not have a new story but it definitely will amuse you when you realise that the all aspects have been worked upon so sharply that it will you with more than just entertainment . Highly Recommended . And Happy Valentine's Day .
