Gully Boy, perhaps one of the most anticipated films of the year, is all set to hit the screens tomorrow. From the teasers, to the trailer, to the songs, the wait for this Zoya Akhtar directorial has become all the more harder. Before you rush and book your tickets for Gully Boy (if you haven’t already,) here are our reasons why you should definitely watch this film!
1. A story about the rappers of India
Bollywood, as an industry, celebrates the underdogs and those who have great stories to their names. In light of all the biopics being made, it comes as no surprise the directors want to explore a new direction story wise. What makes this film further stand out is the fact no other movie in the Bollywood world has been made like this. With a focus on the street rappers of Mumbai (Divine and Naezy,) this movie is real, raw and hard hitting in every sense of the word!
2. A brand new pair
While we are used to seeing both Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt shine in their own lights as superstars, the fact they are sharing screen space for the first time is not lost on fans. Both known for being able to mould themselves into fitting any character, Gully Boy sees the stars shine in roles they haven’t played before. With no detail left unseen, it is going to be true treat to watch a new pair like this.
3. The songs
With Divine’s songs being used for the entire music album of the film, Gully Boy promises to be a rapper’s delight. Further, the dialogues of this film are like a long and drawn rap song, with every word acting as a metaphor to the bigger picture of sorts. Interestingly, Ranveer Singh’s talents as a rapper adds the much needed authenticity and gravitas to this film, making Gully Boy an extremely entertaining and gripping musical drama!
4. Zoya Akhtar
That Zoya Akhtar is a talented director is not an unknown fact. With an eye for detail and a focus on making everything perfect, all her movies have been brilliant. From Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, to Lust Stories and to Taalash, every movie she has directed turned out exceptionally well. Even with Gully Boy, the end picture promises to be just as captivating and well done as the others!
5. A presence of the real rappers
Although the entire cast does complete justice to the story of the rappers, the fact real rappers are present in the movie, is like an extremely delicious cherry on the cake. The rappers on whom the film is based add the much needed sense of authenticity and give the film the real Mumbai street touch!
With so many things going for the film, one can’t help but expect Gully Boy to be a raging success. If you agree, comment and let us know!
