Gully Boy Movie Review - The accomplished director of the movies like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Dil Dhadakne do has come up again after three long years and it seems the wait is worth. This movie is in the gossips since the title of the movie got finalized and look of Ranveer Singh got revealed. Gully Boy movie starts with the opening scene where Ranveer Singh following his friend and they are heading towards an SUV to steal it. Of course, they successfully help themselves to get that car. Now when his friend turned on the music, Ranveer Singh rebuked him to change it as he doesn't like this kind of rap (Ye dekh meri gaadi, mere paise, Ye dekh chokri). From this scene itself, you understand that you are not going to watch something regular. Read the complete movie review of Gully Boy here on this page.

Gully Boy is a story of a kid who has the shining dreams of becoming a rapper in his eyes and despite all odds, he has the fire to achieve it. As the story unfolds, you got to know that the name of kid is "Murad" and he is rebellious wanna be rapper. Living in a match box sized house with a dysfunctional family and still waiting for his time to get change is itself a bigger dream one can have and Murad is living on the edge of it. The movie is based on the life of Naezy and Divine whom many of us started knowing from the song "Mere Gully Main." The story is simple but the depiction of the same is realistic and feels like a complete connection to the characters. 

Be it Murad, Emcee Sher played by Siddhant Chaturvedi, Sky aka Kalki Koechlin or even Vijay Raj as a fierce father who does not want his son to do such things. Zoya Akhtar has presented an actual Dharavi 17 from poverty to lingo. The movie unravels with many skin and subplots, I can't reveal all of them otherwise it will be a spoiler. But what I can say is this movie will show you a journey of a necessitous kid to become the real face of rappers and prove what actual rap is.

Gully Boy Movie Review - Performance of Actors


I was never been a Ranveer Singh's fan, and it was a complete turn off after watching Simmba, I deduced him as another waste launch by Bollywood. Eventually, Gully Boy came and I got to know that this boy has got something in him. He is one of the most amazing actors of recent time and his terrific performance in Gully Boy is the proof of this. He is good at every frame, from an under confident lad who cannot recite his own lyrics to tearing off the rich brat in rap battles. He nailed every minute, every second of the movie. The character of Alia Bhatt as Safeena is also dignified and his obsession with Murad is charismatic. Safeena comes from a conservative family but she is a way strong headed personality. She played a love interest of Ranveer in the movie and they look cute together. 


The debutante Siddhant Chaturvedi is an ace of spades of this movie and also a star of the movie. He is dashing, super cool and of vibrant personality. What impressed me more in Emcee Sher aka Siddhant Chaturvedi is his fearless acting. He stands out of the crowd and leaves a lasting impression. He got some skills and he doesn't look like he is in his first movie. The rap battle scene of his is too amazing where you yourself feel like singing. Vijay Raj does not need an introduction as we all know how powerful actor he is. He sparkles in the role of a fierce father who is after his son’s dreams and does not want to let him do rap and singing, the role of Murad's father seems it is made for him only. Other casts like Kalki Koechlin aka sky, Moeen as Murad’s drug dealer friend etc. did justice to their role.

Gully Boy Movie Review - The final verdict


I personally liked this movie so much so I count this as one of the best movies of 2019 so far. Zoya Akhtar has once again proved why she takes time to write scripts and make a movie. Because she doesn't only make a movie but a reality which can be felt. What you can expect from the two splendid storytellers of Bollywood Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar? A movie like Gully Boy. The final scene, rap battles, and songs are the life of the movie. Vijay Maurya who has also played the role of maternal uncle of Murad has written the dialogues of the movie and they are impactful. 


The movie stretches a bit and could be cut down by 15 minutes but bearable because Gully Boy doesn't give you time to get your eyes off from the screen. This is one of the best movies of Zoya Akhtar and of Bollywood too. The IMDB has already been loaded with lots of positive reviews and I hope people will keep loving it. Gully boy got my hold and heart. I loved this movie and my ratings would be as follows.

Rating – 4.5/5


IMDB Rating - 9/10


Go and watch the boys of Gully. They have got guts whilst belonging to Gully.
