Gully Boy Movie Stars: 4/5
Director Zoya Akhtar has done it again. After helming some brilliant films like Luck By Chance, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and the overwhelming Dil Dhadakne Do, Zoya changes her style with Gully Boy.
Story: The story of Murad (Ranveer Singh), his aspiration, ambition, his family, his love Safeena (Alia Bhatt), his friendships and the path he takes to fulfil his dream. At the forefront, Gully Boy may seem like a movie about the underground rappers but actually, it is much more than that.
The movie is mainly about human relations, connections, emotions and dynamics. There is no filmmaker better than Zoya Akhtar who can portray and handle human complexities in such a brilliant way. Gully Boy will surely be counted amongst her best work.
Ranveer and Alia’s chemistry is too cute to be true. They are like a house on fire.
If the writing of the movie and Zoya’s direction is of the highest order, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, debutant Sidhant Chaturvedi and other actors compliment it with fabulous performances.
Alia Bhatt, is the scene stealer. Every scene she appears in is a riot. She is endearing, to say the least. This is one of her best performances and her character is a perfect example of women empowerment. Alia’s fans are going to love her in every frame.Siddhant Chaturvedi is quite a find and an actor to watch out for.
Gully Boy is one of the best movies to come out of Indian cinema in recent times. Watch it for Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt’s dazzling performances. And moreover, watch it for the master filmmaker Zoya Akhtar. Hats off to her. This one’s a winner.
