Gully Boy movie review: Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt deliver a knock out film that hits the right notes with performances that soar, not just fly

Here's why you should not miss out Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt's Gully Boy this weekend

Rap is poetry with emotion. But you don’t need to know the genre or the legacy of rap music to get into the vibe of Gully Boy. Zoya Akhtar creates a universe that transcends the limits and brackets of what is normal, giving the story of Murad (Ranveer Singh) and his belief in ‘apna time aayega’ a universal appeal. Gully Boy is set against the backdrop of the underground rap scene in Mumbai where every child who can spit lyrics and write bars dreams to one day make his passion his profession. But Gully Boy isn’t just the story of rap, it is also the tale of a mother and son, of love that is possessive and dreams that can’t be caged. Set in Mumbai’s Dharavi slums, Gully Boy narrates the ascent of Murad to the top. His journey is not just limited to his rise as a rap star but also encompasses his personal strife with his abusive father (Vijay Raaz) and an over possessive girlfriend Safeena (Alia Bhatt). Then there is Murad’s sidekick who actually teaches him the craft - Sher (Siddhant Chaturvedi) and plays a very important role in his journey.

Gully Boy is definitely a landmark film that will shine bright on Ranveer and Alia’s eclectic resumes. This is also Zoya’s best work till date and a film that will resonate with anyone who believes in dreams and their manifestation.
