Gully Boys


Two dynamic stars, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt are all set to take their audience to a musical journey. Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boys’ hit the screens and it is up for the audience to give thumps up or thumps down. The film is set at the backdrop of Asia’s largest slum- Dharavi. Zoya Akhtar is a unique story teller.

The rap song ‘Apna Time Ayega’ penned Divine and Ankur Tewari already hit the chartbuster and it has become quite popular among the youngsters.

Ranveer Singh ( Murad), the son of a driver (Vijay Raaz) and Razia (Amruta Subhash), is intense, hardworking and a die-hard music lover. He wants to make his mark in the world of music despite pathetic social condition. The social stigmas and financial constraints restricted him from living his dream. Murad fights against the prejudice mindset to cherish his dream and his only support in his journey is his possessive girlfriend Safeena Ali (Alia Bhatt), his friend and philosopher. Murad’s guru MC Sher (Siddhant Chaturvedi) was his path shower.

Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar’s screenplay is praise worthy. Vijay Maurya dialogue is impactful.

Speaking about the performance, Ranveer Singh shines again. He has yet again proved his excellence and showed that he is equally good in periodic and street boy role. His intense acting wins heart. There was a spark in his eyes that directly touched the audience.

Speaking about Alia Bhatt, she is equally powerful. She was spontaneous, loud and lively. She has proved that she can pull any role with sheer excellence.

The others star casts like Vijay Verma, Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Raaz, Amruta Subhash or Sheeba Chaddha added to the film’s script and brilliance.

Oza's cinematography is top-notch, Suzanne Caplan Merwanji's production design deserve applause. Nitin Baid's editing is fine. Bosco–Caesar choreography is excellent.

In the nutshell, ‘Gully Boys’ is highly recommended. It is highly entertaining and full paisa wasool movie.
