After giving great films like ‘Luck By Chance’, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, and ‘Dil Dhadak Ne Do’, Zoya Akhtar is back with her latest masterpiece ‘Gully Boy‘. It’s an undergod story about a poor guy from Dharavi named Murad (Ranveer), whose dreams are bigger than his reality. Alia Bhatt (Safeena) is starring as Murad’s love interest and is a medical student. The movie has many layers to it, as the protagonist finds himself, his desires, and how he expresses himself through the art of poetry and rhythm (RAP).

The movie puts a shining light on India’s emerging rap culture. The writing is capturing as it beautifully combines art, struggle, human connections, and emotions. Zoya Akhtar aces the direction as she handles the narration, dealing with human complexities with much ease and brilliance. ‘Gully Boy’ is one of her best piece of work to date.

Ranveer Singh‘s performance is extraordinary as the protagonist, it is hard to believe that he the same guy who played Khalji and top cop Simmba in his last performances. He is a pro at rapping, as in most of the part Singh is silent and explodes only when he is expressing himself through his lyrics.

Alia is fierce, focused and fearless in the film. Alia and Ranveer’s relationship in the film shares great chemistry and understanding. Besides the leads of the film, another character portrayed by debutant Sidhant Chaturvedi (MC Sher) of the film is will confuse you by his natural and real performance as an experienced rapper.

Vijay Raaz, Sheeba Chaddha, Amruta Subhash, Vijay Maurya, and Kalki Koechlin are all good in their parts. Special mention to Vijay Maurya, who also wrote the dialogues of the film.

The cinematography of the movie is by Jay Oza who presented the city mainly in wide shots and brutally close-ups of actors from film to show their rawest selves.

The music in the film also plays an important character, the meaningful lyrics are just like icing on the cake. ‘Gully Boy’ is a combination of great performances, meaningful music, unmatchable direction and world-class cinematography which makes it a must watch.
