Gully Boy, the latest movie by Zoya Akhtar has just hit the theatre this week.

After the success of some outstanding films such as Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Luck By Chance and Dil Dhadakne Do, Zoya Akhtar is back again with something different. Gully Boy is a romantic drama which tells the story of Murad (Ranveer Singh) and his life. From his ambition, an aspiration to his family and the love of his life Safeena (Alia Bhatt), all are included in a movie 150 minutes long. On the surface, Gully Boy seems to be a movie of an underground rapper. It, however, is a production of Zoya Akhtar and Ranveer Singh so we might have something more to expect.  

Gully Boy Is More Than A Story Of A Rapper

Through the life of a rapper, the movie has conveyed some hidden messages about human connections and relations, dynamics and emotions. Zoya Akhtar has amazingly portrayed and handled the complexities of human’s emotion, which we can expect from no others. One thing to be sure of is that Gully Boy will be added to his best works list soon.

There are plenty of scenes which reveal how genius he is. Let’s take the scene of Murad’s dad getting remarried. That’s the silence which speaks louder than words. Another striking scene is when Murad’s boss, who always reminds him of his social status, asks him to move aside. The movie is a collection of precious gems.

The love and friendship in the movie are also notable. You will find them so authentic and moving. The bonding connection between Ranveer Singh and his friend Vijay Verma at the end will strike a cord inside of you. And the love of him and Alia is too sweet to be real.

It is undeniable that the film cast including Ranveer Singh, Sidhant Chaturvedi, Alia Bhatt and others is excellent. Along with the narration and Zoya's direction, they added up to the movie to make it a fabulous one.

Ranveer Singh Never Lets Us Down

As an A-lister, Ranveer Singh’s performance is phenomenal. No surprise! Anyway, it is hard to imagine how an excessive cop in Simmba turns out to be a rapper giving exploding rap songs like this. He has nailed it effortlessly. In facts, his rapping skills are like a pro.

With a sweet appearance, Alia Bhatt is definitely a scene stealer and this role is one of her best performance so far. Who cannot fall in love with this cute and graceful girl?

In spite of being a debutant, Sidhant Chaturvedi’s performance is natural and the rapping skill is amazing. Taking the first successful step in his career, this guy will go to places with his talents.

Apart from the main leads, Vijay Raaz, Amruta Subhash, Sheeba Chaddha, Kalki Koechlin and Vijay Maurya has done their part very well, especially Vijay Verma.

A plus point to the movie as the music is hypnotizing as you might play it with an endless loop. In addition to that, meaningful music is an extra point.

On The Downside

Apart from the positive upside, the pace is quite slow in the last part. The editing should be tightened as most of us can predict how the story goes. 

Vijay Maurya’s dialogues might receive dozens of seetis and taalis. The cinematic effects are perfect as it added the needed authenticity to the movie.

In short, Gully Boy is the best Bollywood option for you to go with this week. In all aspects from the actors’ performance to the director’s handling, it deserves to be the winner.
