Rajeev Masand, News 18 gave thumbs up – “I really enjoy the world she creates and characters, habits and the paces she puts them through.I also came away with appreciation for Indian Hip hop music which frankly i didn’t know anything about.”
Raja Sen, Hindustan Time gave 4/5 – “Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, an underdog story shining a light on India’s incipient hip-hop subculture, is the first great Hindi film of 2019 and a rousing celebration of spunk.”
Saibal, NDTV rated it 3/5 – “In an era of which Bollywood is increasingly passing off pulpy apologies for demagoguery for cinema, Gully Boy could have been a fitting riposte. It just doesn’t go far enough to pose discomfiting questions in keeping with the art of the street rapper.”
Rachit Gupta, Times Of India recommended 4/5 – “This is a film that deserves an encore. And in true rap style, let’s just say… Yeh Gully Boy hard hai bhai!”
Hungama site gave 3.5/5 – “On the whole, GULLY BOY is a fun and moving entertainer that will surely resonate with the youth and multiplex-frequenting urban audiences. At the box office, the four day weekend will ensure that it emerges a profitable venture for its makers”
Gully Boy will be a perfect release for the Valentine’s Day with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. Gully Boy is being produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidwani.
